Mega, Ltd. (branded as MEGA) is a file hosting service and successor to Megaupload and opened by KimDotcom in January 2013. This service was opened after the Megaupload was shut down by US Govt. in 2012. MEGA has already released their official Android app for the cloud storage service. Now, MEGA has now released the first beta of its desktop app for Windows which allows users to keep their files in sync with the desktop version. The app is pretty similar to Dropbox and other cloud storage service where you can set the location on desktop where you want the files and folders to be synced.

When you install the app, you can choose to have typical install or advanced install where you can configure it. Once installed, you can log in with  your MEGA account.

Sync

Although the app performs very similar to other services like Dropbox, what makes MEGA app for desktop unique is the feature that you can synchronize multiple folders in your MEGA cloud storage with different locations on your local folders via linking each folder to a specific cloud folder. This can be done from the Sync tab available in the app settings.
