    If you still don't have a Yandex account, click on Register to sign up. Then enter your username and password.

    Attention. If you use two-factor authentication or have used it before, you need a one-time password generated by the “Yandex.Key” mobile app to log in to the Yandex.Disk program.

    The downloaded folder doesn't sync with the cloud. If you've downloaded a folder, changed something in it, and you want the changes to appear on Yandex.Disk, upload the folder to Disk manually.
