Follow our step-by-step instructions.

Open your PC’s file explorer and find BT Cloud as shown below.

To add a file, either drag it directly into the folder or copy and paste. Remember a drag and drop will move the file from its orginal location rather than making a copy.

To help locate and upload 'other files' from an Android device, download one of the many available folder manager applications from Google’s Play Store, such as Android File Manager or Astro File Manager.

Select the files you want to add and they'll be uploaded.

On Android devices, the status bar at the top of the screen will show upload progress.

On iOS devices, upload progress is shown at the bottom of the BT Cloud home page which displays a spinner as selected content is uploaded to your BT Cloud Sync folder. You can also click on this bar to see files as they are being added.
