We are happy to announce the latest version of Syncdocs, version 6.966.
This update will upload and download small files significantly faster.
Also included is the latest Google Drive libraries to stay compatible and secure with Google’s updates to Drive, security and Photos.
.NET 4.5 update might be required
This release will require .NET 4.5 due to Google TLS (SSL) security requirements. These crypto libraries are not in .NET 3.5 or .NET 4.
Legacy Syncdocs version for Windows XP
Those still running Windows 2000, XP SP2 or lower, or Server 2003 can download the .NET update.

Using the new Microsoft Office 2013 (Office version 15) you can easily save documents to your web SkyDrive account. You can share this online document with other Office 2013 users. However, to share to the widest number of friends possible, it’s best not to force them to use a specific product.
If you have Syncdocs installed, you can easily collaborate between Office 2013 and Google Docs, in real-time. You can also collaborate between the older Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 versions using Google Docs. This is useful if your collaborators don’t all use the same product.
Here’s how to setup online collaboration using Word 2013 and Google Docs:
First install the latest free version of Syncdocs.
Then create a document in Word 2013, here we’ve just used the welcome document. Then simply save it to your Syncdocs synced folder on your desktop.
In Google Docs you can edit or share the file.
Any changes you make online are automatically synced back into your MS Word in real-time.
And Word 2013 changes are synced up to Google Docs.
This way you can easily share and collaborate on the web using any version of Office from the last 10 years and Google Docs.
