Transferring Files from Local Device to Vagon

There are two ways to transfer your file from your local files to Vagon.

Transferring Small Files to Vagon

If you want to transfer small files from your local computer to your Vagon, you can drag the file from your local directly to Vagon. It is that simple!

This way is also valid for large files as well, however related to the current way of working, transferring large files with drag and drop takes longer this way. We highly recommend you to use the next method to transfer large files.

Transferring Large Files to Vagon

When you need to transfer large files to Vagon, you can use Vagon Files. Vagon Files is an independent but an integrated cloud storage which you can keep your files there, and sync them to your Vagon computer, even if it’s not running.

You can transfer your files, create folders to keep them organized, and store your files in there. Once you need to transfer them to your Vagon computer, just click the Sync to Vagon button, and all the queued files will be listed in Vagon Files folder when you connect your computer.

For now, Vagon Files directory and your Vagon computer are not fully synced and you need to initiate transfers to keep them synced. But, we are currently working on it, and it will be available soon.

The files listed in Vagon Files directory do not use space in your Vagon computer disk storage, so you can get more space by keeping your huge files in Vagon Files directory.
