Configure Titan Drive

If you're using TOTAL, there's a quicker way to configure Titan Drive through TOTAL's configuration settings. Click here for instructions.

Titan Drive really draws its value through its ability to automatically back up your new and updated report files. The configuration tools walk you through the process of scheduling your automatic backup so that you can ensure that your files are safely stored in Titan Drive regardless of what happens to your computer.

Before you start, make sure Titan Drive is installed. Then, follow the instructions below to configure it:

  1. Click Start, go to [All] Programs, hover over a la mode Titan Drive, and select Configure Titan Drive.
    If you're using Windows 8/10, simply press the Windows key and type Configure Titan Drive into the Start screen/menu and press Enter.
  2. When you see the Introduction screen, click Next.
  3. In the screen that appears:
    1. Enter your Username and Password
    2. If you've forgotten or lost this information, click Forgot Password? to reset it.
    3. At the bottom of the screen, enter an email address where you'd like to receive notifications. Titan Drive uses this email address to send you confirmation notices whenever an automatic upload is attempted.
    4. Click Next to continue.

  4. Titan Drive connects to our servers to verify your information. Choose the file type(s) you want to store by checking or unchecking the box next to each file type. When you're finished, click Next again.

  5. Select the Yes option to enable watched folders and click Next. By using watched folders, the backup utility monitors your folders for new or updated reports. If changes are made to files in these folders, the backup utility detects these changes and automatically uploads those reports for you during the next upload.

  6. Next, choose which folders should be monitored:

    Watched Folders

    We don't recommend selecting the root of a drive as a watched folder. Doing so causes the backup utility to scan your entire hard drive every time it checks for new or updated files. This takes a very long time and can lock up your system.
  7. Select the Yes option to schedule a time for automatic backup and click Next to continue.

  8. Choose between the Daily, Weekly, or Monthly options to control how often Titan Drive checks for and uploads new and updated files. Then, choose a time in the field provided (if necessary), and click Next to continue.

    Schedule

    You don't have to upload at night. Titan Drive works in the background and can be running while you work on other things. But, if you just can't decide on a time, click Get Time to query our servers for the best time to upload your files, based on the current system load. You need to ensure that your PC is on and connected to the Internet at the scheduled time in order for Titan Drive to upload your files.
  9. Choose whether you want to limit the number of files you upload at one time. Typically, this is only enabled for slower internet connections. If you decide to set a limit, select the Yes option and specify a limit in the field provided. Otherwise, leave it set to No and click Next to continue.

  10. Finally, Titan Drive connects to the Internet and checks your watched folders to see if there are any new or updated files that need to be uploaded. After it's done searching, the number of new and updated files are displayed, as well as how many files it is preparing to upload. To upload the files now, click Continue, and then click Finish when the upload is complete. Otherwise, click Finish to wait until the next scheduled upload.

That's it! Titan Drive is configured for automatically uploading your appraisal report files to your Titan Drive storage area. Once you have sent your first batch of files to the server, keep in mind that the files are still on your computer, but they are also safely backed up on our servers. To notify you of your Titan Drive activity, you receive an email that confirms your file transfer and lets you know exactly what files were uploaded, along with the current status of your account. If you ever need or want to reconfigure your Titan Drive settings, simply go back to Step #1 and start over.

We also recommend that you configure Titan Drive to store a backup copy of your settings, QuickLists, digital signature, and other important data. See the Configure Settings Backup section of this User's Guide for more details.
