Using the Magic Briefcase

The Magic Briefcase is a synchronized folder that Webroot has configured for your convenience. It resides under your personal Documents folder in Windows. Any files you put in the Magic Briefcase are automatically synchronized with your online account and with any other computers or mobile devices in your account.

We recommend that you use the Magic Briefcase to load files that you may want to access from other devices, as when you are traveling and want to access certain documents remotely. If you have multiple devices that share a SecureAnywhere account, you should not load a large amount of files in the Magic Briefcase. Backup & Sync copies all files placed in the Magic Briefcase to all your other devices with SecureAnywhere installed.

To use the Magic Briefcase:

  1. Open Windows Explorer and select a folder or file you want to copy. Right-click to open the pop-up menu and select Copy.

  2. Open the Magic Briefcase folder, located in your personal Documents folder in Windows Explorer. If you have trouble finding it, go to the Backup & Sync panel and click Open Magic Briefcase.

  3. Paste the file into the Magic Briefcase folder.

    When you copy the file to the Magic Briefcase, the file is instantly synchronized to your online SecureAnywhere account and to your other computers with SecureAnywhere installed.

    If you want to verify that the file or folder was loaded into your online account, log in to and click Go to Backups.
