What is MEGAsync?

MEGAsync is an installable application that synchronises folders between your computer and your MEGA Cloud Drive. All files and subfolders will be replicated in both directions. Changes that you make on your device will also be made on the MEGA Cloud Drive in near to real time (within the limits of link / system latency and file transfer times). Similarly, changes made in your MEGA Cloud Drive (such as renaming, moving and deleting) will also be made to the synced folders on your device.

MEGAsync is a TWO WAY sync. The folders you nominate to be synced will mirror any action!

Whatever you add / delete to / from your sync folder(s) on your device locally gets added / deleted in your sync folder(s) in Cloud Drive and vice versa. Overwritten or deleted files can be found in your local sync hidden folder called Rubbish or .debris and in your Cloud Drive's SyncDebris folder in the Rubbish Bin.

Best practices for resolving MEGAsync issues

The following programs have also been shown useful for a deeper analysis: ASecurity Task Manager examines the active MEGAsync process on your computer and clearly tells you what it is doing. Malwarebytes' well-known Banti-malware tool tells you if the MEGAsync.exe on your computer displays annoying ads, slowing it down. This type of unwanted adware program is not considered by some antivirus software to be a virus and is therefore not marked for cleanup.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding PC trouble. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
