Official MEGA Client For Windows Appears; Syncs Multiple Local Folders With The Cloud

Last year, Kim Dotcom unveiled a brand new cloud storage company called MEGA from the ashes of his now-defunct Megaupload - the favorite file sharing service that made headlines after having a forced shutdown by authorities as a result of copyright infringement. MEGA has gained worldwide acclaim since that time, and as a consequence seen impressive userbase growth. Besides its intuitive web-based dashboard, MEGA also has an official Android client that lets you sync files from your smartphone or tablet to your online storage. However, with regards to Windows, the organization has stayed tight-lipped about any details pertaining to whether a desktop app has developed or not. All that changes now, because the beta release of  MEGA for Windows has finally emerged available as MEGASync, despite there being no official words from Kim himself up to now.

Being in beta, MEGASync can be viewed as work in progress for the time being, but despite the fact that, it works absolutely like a charm at syncing all kinds of files between computer as well as your MEGA cloud drive. The installation is easy and hassle-free, plus allows you to select any local and MEGA folders to keep in sync from the advanced installation option.

When installed, a wizard guides you from the process of setting MEGASync up, starting with signing in using your Mega account, or signing up for a brand new one should you don’t have one already. During testing, I remarked that the Sign Up option doesn’t work yet within this beta, this means new users should use the service’s website to sign up for a brand new account for the present time.

After setting up your account, MEGASync begins running without anyone's knowledge and adds an icon to the system tray to let you access its settings console. The Settings window houses General, Account, Syncs, Bandwidth and Proxies tabs. If you are already using Dropbox or SkyDrive, you won’t feel much of a difference in usage between MEGASync and the former two cloud options; they put in a folder on your pc, that is kept in sync along with your cloud storage around the service automatically with the app itself. All the basic options like account linking and unlinking, checking remaining storage and limiting bandwidth usage can be bought in MEGASync.

What makes MEGASync outsmart the competition is being able to synchronize multiple folders in your MEGA cloud storage with various locations on your local storage via linking each folder to some specific cloud drive nodes. Nodes are basically folders on MEGA, and you will link any of the local folders for synchronization with any node. Folders and nodes may be added directly from your Syncs tab, and all you have to do is specify offline (local folder) and internet-based (node folder) locations for the desired files to kep trapped in sync.


MEGASync is effective even in its current beta state, and I didn’t come across any issue aside from the register problem mentioned earlier. The app works on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, and you can download it through the link provided below.
