What is LAN Sync? 

This feature makes the download of shared files faster. When you use LAN Sync, computers in the same network will send their files to each other instead of downloading the same file directly from the server. This way it reduces the server load drastically reducing the number of files one needs to download directly from the server.

Computers uploading files to the vBoxxCloud server and the vBoxxCloud server syncing the files back to each computer.
