Clicking Finish (only available from the confirmation window) saves any changes and closes the Remote Library setup and connect to this library.

Note: You can set this library to be a 'Read-Only Library'. This means that SuperSync can 'Put' tracks from this library into your Remote Library but it cannot copy tracks (aka Get) tracks into this library.

Once you have connected this library, its contents will appear side-by-side with your Local Library in the SuperSync Window. You can now proceed to the Syncing Your Libraries section in this manual.
