-You can navigate your files and folders from different clouds either by a GUI explorer tool or directly from the command line.

-The Sync Centre is a sophisticated Desktop/​Cloud synchronisation tool. It enables you to keep local files/​folders in sync with files/​folders stored on the Cloud. On first launch you will be asked if you want to sync with your underlying cloud.
