What are the icons next to my files on my Seagate Duet?

 

After installing the Seagate Duet software on your computer, you may notice icons next to the files on your external drive. These icons are to help you keep track of what files have been synced to Amazon Drive so far.

There are different icons that can be displayed next to your files depending on the state of the file.

The check mark icons pictured above indicate the file has already been synced to Amazon Drive.

The syncing icons pictured above indicate the file is either currently syncing, or will be synced in the future.
