Access, Sync & Share Your Files Using OwnCloud On Your Server
OwnCloud provides universal access to your files via the web, your computer or your mobile devices — wherever you are. It also provides a platform to easily view & sync your contacts, calendars and bookmarks across all your devices and enables basic editing right on the web.
OwnCloud is an alternative to DropBox, Google Drive, Box.net, etc. Instead of saving personal or sensitive data on a server out of your control, you just use your own server from iMarketHost.com. Installation is quick and easy with the web installer located here or if you like, we can install it for you FREE.

The Sync Process
First it is important to recall what syncing is. Syncing tries to keep the files on both repositories the same. That means if a file is added to one repository it is going to be copied to the other repository. If a file is changed on one repository, the change is propagated to the other repository. Also, if a file is deleted on one side, it is deleted on the other. As a matter of fact, in ownCloud syncing we do not have a typical client/server system where the server is always master.
This is the major difference to other systems like a file backup where just changes and new files are propagated but files never get deleted.
