What is Owncloud?
Owncloud is file storage software that enables people to easily upload, manage and share their contents. It also supports extensions that allow it to work like Google Drive, with online document editing, calendar and contact synchronization.
Here at BWDHS we think its simple to use with our simple drag and drop system making it simple and easy for anyone to use.
Access Your Data
Store your files, folders, contacts, photo galleries, calendars and more on a server of your choosing. Access that folder from your mobile device, your desktop, or a web browser. Access your data wherever you are, when you need it.
Sync Your Data
Keep your files, contacts, photo galleries, calendars and more synchronized amongst your devices. One folder, two folders and more – get the most recent version of your files with the desktop and web client or mobile app of your choosing, at any time.
Share Your Data
Share your data with others, and give them access to your latest photo galleries, your calendar, your music, or anything else you want them to see. Share it publicly, or privately. It is your data, do what you want with it.
Did someone make a change to a shared file that you don’t like, or did you accidentally delete a section of the file that you need? With the Versions Application enabled, ownCloud automatically saves old file versions – you configure how much to save. To revert, simply hover over your file and roll back to a previous version.
Do you want to make sure that your files remain secure on the server? We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption to make sure your data safe, furthermore we have the encryption application enabled so that all files stored on your file account are encrypted to your password.
Drag And Drop Upload
We make this simple for you to upload files by simply logging into ownCloud in a web browser and drag and drop your files from your desktop into your desired target directory in the web browser. They will be automatically uploaded to the server.
