Moving from Copy to Nomadesk

  • First, make sure you have Nomadesk installed and that you are logged in so that your Vault is available on your computer.

*You can save a local copy of your Copy files to your Nomadesk Vault using the Copy Desktop Agent using the following steps.

  • Download and Install the Copy Desktop Agent from https://www.copy.com/install
  • Run the Copy Agent on your computer you want to save a copy of your files, and log in.
  • Choose where you want the Copy folder to be installed; your Nomadesk Vault is visible and available as a harddrive in your filesystem via select a different folder.

  • When Copy prompts you to exclude files, only exclude the files you do not want to keep a local copy of. Uncheck any file or folder you do not want to sync. Any file you do not keep a local copy of will be deleted once the Copy service is discontinued.
  • Once this is done, wait for the Copy agent to sync down all the files. Right-click the agent icon in the system tray to check progress.
  • Once the sync is complete, all selected files stored on Copy are added to your Copy folder. You can safely uninstall the Copy agent from your machine.
  • Your files are now available in the Copy folder that you placed on your Nomadesk Vault.
  • The Nomadesk Vault will sync the Copy folder and when the sync is complete, you will see a green checkmark which indicates that your data is uploaded to our servers.

  • While the Copy agent is running, right-click on the Copy icon in your system tray, and open up the preferences window:

  • Click Manage My Files, and make sure all your files and folders are selected to Sync in the My Files tab:

  • Check if you have any deleted items you want to keep, and restore what's needed from the Undelete tab:

  • Click Save and allow the Copy agent to sync down all the files. Right-click the agent icon in the system tray to check progress.
  • Once the sync is complete, all selected files stored on Copy are added to your Copy folder. You can safely uninstall the Copy agent from your computer and drag and drop your files to your Nomadesk Vault.
  • The Nomadesk Vault will sync the Copy folder and when the sync is complete, you will see a green checkmark which indicates that your data is uploaded to our servers.
