If you noticed that certain files are not synced between your cloud apps, it’s probably because files are not on the cloud servers of your cloud provider. For example, if you are syncing from Google Drive, then it might be that your Google Drive Desktop sync did not upload data into Google server.

Or perhaps, if you are syncing from Dropbox, then it might be that your Dropbox desktop sync did not upload data to Dropbox servers.

Here’s how to resolve the issue:

STEP 1:

Check if you are syncing correct folders. The see which folders you have selected to sync do this:

  • Login to cloudHQ
  • Select Sync & Backup tab
  • The sync pair specification is shown as follows:


    Transfer in Progress

STEP 2:
Check if cloudHQ sync is started:

  • Check the sync status in Sync & Backup tab:
    Transfer in Progress
  • If sync is not started, click on Start All Syncs
    Transfer in Progress

STEP 3:

Check if the initial transfer is in progress:

  • If the initial transfer is in progress, then please wait for cloudHQ to finish (you will receive an email when everything has been copied):
    Transfer in Progress
  • If the initial transfer is NOT in progress, click “View Sync Events,” then go to STEP 3:
    Transfer completed

STEP 4:

Go to all events. Check if cloudHQ has copied the files:

Check events

STEP 5:

If the files and folders in question are shown in events, then the problem is probably that the target cloud storage app is not downloading data to your computer. For example, it could be your desktop sync is not running.

STEP 6:

If files and folders in question are NOT shown in events, then the problem might be that files are not being uploaded to cloud storage from your computer.

For example, it could be that desktop sync is stopped and it is not uploading files from your computer to cloud storage. Here is how to troubleshoot that:

STEP 7 :

Verify sync events and check if cloudHQ is in the process of copying data. There may be a backlog of data to be copied and the files in questions are in the queue:

  • If cloudHQ is in the process of copying data, then you will see sync events being reported every few seconds.
  • If cloudHQ is in the process of copying, wait for cloudHQ to the copy data. It might just take time to sync all the files.

At the end, if cloudHQ sync is running, the sync is not in initial sync, the sync is NOT in process of copying, and your data is on target cloud platform, then please email us at support@cloudHQ.net.
