Sync assets seamlessly between Local Network and NetX

Share files and control asset versions with efficiency. NetX I/O automatically syncs files between a file server and NetX to remove file management barriers, and lets teams work directly from the desktop.
  • Synchronize local file server with NetX instances (remote or local).
  • Let creators work directly on the file system, but get the benefits of fully managed assets in NetX.
  • Ensure the latest version of the file is always available from anywhere.

How NetX I/O Works

Installed locally on a network file share, the NetX I/O app is set to synchronize a designated parent folder with an associated NetX instance. When importing or updating assets, either locally or in NetX, the I/O app automatically syncs assets between the two locations, ensuring that a single source of the asset remains accessible at all times. What is available locally is always the same as what is in NetX.


Three Modes

NetX I/O syncs files in three different ways:
  1. Watched folder
    Drop files locally, and transfer them directly to NetX. Local files are deleted once in NetX, but folders are left in place.

  2. Sync
    Bi-directionally synchronize files between NetX and a local file system. Add, move, rename and delete: mirror actions in both locations.

  3. Merge
    Transfer only what’s missing files between NetX and your local file system. This safety mode allow only additions to propagate.


  • Make NetX a pervasive part of your workflow, without accessing the application itself.
  • Preserve a single source for assets, locally or remotely, to keep libraries up-to-date.
  • Configure syncing and file updates.
  • Mistakes happen, which is why NetX I/O has configurable deletion limit.
  • Specify system memory usage, syncing frequency, and watched folders that map to NetX.

Set the pace of I/O

Administrators can specify how much system memory I/O is using, how frequently syncing happens, and which local folders I/O maps to NetX categories.

Guard against costly errors

Mistakes happen, which is why NetX I/O has deletion limit of 100 assets to safeguard against accidental deletion and overwrite errors.
