Box News

GUShare - Box Migration - We will conduct a bulk migration of files for all remaining GUShare users. This migration will automatically move your files/folders from GUShare to Box, streamlining the migration for you. Please note that after the 13th of December, you will not have access to GUShare.

New Preview Experience - We have rolled out the new preview experience to all users. As a reminder, when users get the new preview, the file ‘liking’ feature will be removed. Currently, printing from the file preview page is not available, but we will be adding that support in the coming weeks.

Box Sync 4.0 - This upgrade is now available to all users as the default download version on the website. We plan to start auto-updating existing Sync 3 users to Sync 4 in January.

Box Sync
- access by downloading for Windows and Mac

With Box Sync, you can work on files on your desktop or laptop computer, and then have those files (and any changes you make to those files) replicated to your Box account and any other devices running Box sync.

Please keep in mind that the Box Sync tool is not optimized for sharing files with others, nor does it keep previous versions at the moment. So, it is best to only use the Sync tool to manage a folder across all of your own, personal devices, and to use the Web and mobile interfaces to manage any files you expect to share with others.
