First steps with LRZ Sync+Share
Everything else is (hopefully) self-explanatory or can be found in the FAQs and the manufacturer's documentation.
Installation of a client / mobile app
For many use cases, the web interface is sufficient. To use the full functionality of the service, the installation of a client/app is required. The client is especially necessary if you want to use the synchronization functionality. If you just want to share data with other people or send files via link, the intuitive web interface is usually sufficient.
The client for the different platforms is available for download here. Checksums for the installation packages are available here. Instructions for the installation can be found here.

Special note on shared data
LRZ Sync+Share allows you to share folders by inviting people. Please note that the owner's data is specially protected by German law.
If the owner of the data leaves the institution, the account will be deleted. The invited people will no no longer be able to access the data. We recommend transferring the ownership beforehand.
Have fun using LRZ Sync+Share!
