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

    Attention. If you use or have previously used two-factor authentication, you'll need a one-time password generated by “Yandex Key” to log in to Yandex Disk.

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