Install and set up WorkDrive Sync for Linux

Install and set up WorkDrive Sync for Linux

Before attempting to install WorkDrive Sync on your device, please ensure that your OS is Ubuntu 14.04/Linux 17 or higher.
  1. Download the WorkDrive Sync app for the Linux OS (64 bit) (Download Link).

    Important: Please make sure to read the License Agreement and Privacy Policy before you agree to download the WorkDrive Sync app.

  2. Extract the downloaded file (ZohoWorkDrive-x64.tar.gz) to a folder.
  3. In the extracted folder, open the terminal (without sudo) and run the command "./.setup".
    This will install the Sync application on your computer.

    Info: Entering "sudo" before the command allows you to temporarily elevate your current user account to obtain root privileges. For installation of the Sync application, the "sudo" command is not required.

  4. After the successful installation, the Zoho WorkDrive sign-in screen will be displayed.
  5. Enter your Zoho account credentials to sign in.



    You can also sign in using Google, Office 365, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Yahoo accounts. If you don't have a Zoho account, click Sign Up to create your new Zoho account.

    Note: If you're connected to the internet via a proxy server, you will see an error, "Could not connect to Server", with a link to configure proxy server. Refer to Application Preferences for more information on configuring proxy server.

  6. Choose your sync folder location.
    The default sync folder location will be User Profile > Zoho WorkDrive (Team name).
    You can change this to your preferred location at any time. Click Next to proceed.



    Note: If another folder has the same name as the sync folder in your preferred location, you can choose to move, merge or, rename the existing folder.

  7. Select Folders to sync from your Zoho WorkDrive to your computer, and vice-versa.
    The default option is to sync all the folders in your Zoho WorkDrive account (i.e., My Folders, Shared with Me, and Team Folders). You can also choose to selective sync these folders and their sub-folders from your account. Select the required folders and click Next.



  8. Click Start Sync to complete the WorkDrive setup and start syncing the selected folders.



Disconnect WorkDrive Sync from a Computer

When you no longer wish to sync your Zoho WorkDrive account with a Computer, you can disconnect that Computer. When you disconnect a Computer, the files already synced with that Computer will not be deleted, only the sync between that Computer and Zoho WorkDrive will be stopped. All files will be available on the WorkDrive web.

Disconnect Sync from a Computer
  1. Click the WorkDrive icon  in the system tray. A popup screen will appear.



  2. Click the Settings icon  and select Preferences.
  3. Select the Account menu.

Uninstall the WorkDrive Sync app

  1. Click the WorkDrive icon  in the system tray. A popup screen will appear.
  2. Click the Settings icon  in the popup screen.
  3. Select Quit.



  4. Go to the folder where you extracted the WorkDrive app files during installation.
  5. In the extracted folder, open the terminal (without sudo) and run the command "./.setup -UNINSTALL".
    This will uninstall the Sync application from your computer.
When you uninstall the Sync app from your computer, the files already synced to your computer will not be deleted automatically. If you don't want these files on your computer, you need to delete them manually after uninstallation.
