When the client is run for the first time, the folder "C:/Documents and Settings/User/ownCloud" (Win) or "~/owncloud" (MAC/Linux) is created by default and made available for synchronization.

In order to be able to synchronize several local directories with the TUownCloud, it is recommended to synchronize the first selected local directory with a subdirectory of the root directory (and not with the root directory itself) in your TUownCloud, e.g. to map the local directory C:\Data\sync1 to the remote path "sync1", see graphic.

Of course, the synchronization status is displayed.
