On October 26, 2012, Microsoft announced its Windows 8 across tablet and PC interfaces. The new operating system, because of its Desktop Style UI and Windows 8 Style UI, features rather different interfacing and usage.
New operating systems launched in every several years always require different hardware specs and incur cumbersome migration to new computers because exiting data need to be copied onto separate hard disc drives and then copied onto new computers; repeated copying for several times is consuming enough.
ASUS WebStorage now resolves the hassle of repeated copying accompanied with a long wait, enabling easy and seamless upgrade to Windows 8.
Familiar desktop experience that facilitates upgrade
The Windows 8 desktop interface would look familiar to anyone who has the experience in using Windows 7, but there are some differences between the two operating systems. The biggest difference of Windows 8 is its lack of a start icon on the taskbar, but ASUS WebStorage can still be activated by clicking on its desktop shortcut. To do so, ASUS WebStorage Sync Agent Windows 8 should be downloaded first.
After downloading, an installation wizard similar to Windows 7 installation will appear.
After installation is completed, input your ASUS WebStorage account, WebStorage ID (email), and password to start to use ASUS WebStorage.
All the files in ASUS WebStorage will be automatically downloaded onto the computer running Windows 8. When Windows 8 MySyncFolder is opened, all the data in ASUS WebStorage will be automatically synchronized onto the new computer to easily access the data used daily, doing without the cumbersome procedures otherwise required. ASUS WebStorage provides the easiest and most seamless way of transferring data onto new computers.
User experience innovated by dynamic tiles of Windows 8 Style UI
The Windows 8 Style UI is the greatest feature, whose dynamic tiles revolutionize the traditional interface of Windows to provide a brand new experience of tablet touch control, and now ASUS WebStorage provides apps exclusively for Windows 8 Style UI based on its successful experience in Windows Phone 7. Such apps significantly enhance the touch control experience provided by Windows 8, as ASUS WebStorage passed the verification by a Windows Store App program held by Microsoft in June 2012.
