Zoho WorkDrive FAQ

Zoho WorkDrive is a cloud-based storage service. It synchronizes your files, stores them securely in the cloud, and enables you to work on projects with your team.

Files in Zoho WorkDrive are encrypted with zero-knowledge encryption and inaccessible to third parties. The app also generates unique encryption keys for every session. You can rest assured that your information is always secure.

TrueSync is a WorkDrive function that syncs all your files, so they are on your computer as well as in the cloud. This bit of data-saving software turns your desktop into a cloud storage solution and doesn’t fill up your hard drive. If you make any edits locally, only the alterations will be updated to the cloud.

There is an option to schedule a demo on Zoho’s official website. For more advanced training on WorkDrive and other Zoho applications, see our training resources.
