Resilio Sync Comments

By far better than the rest

about Resilio Sync Dec 2016

I used BTSync for over a year then finally bought the Resilio Sync Pro. I use it for all my files now, either syncing work, photos or game folders. Once you figure out how to use it properly, it is far superior. I have mine set up to sync my Google Drive, SpiderOak, Dropbox, Box, Sync & ownCloud to once place in one master folder. The syncing/speed is always wicked fast locally & will only seem slow if you have a limited AKA 'cheap' broadband connection you will have no issues.

For those who care, yes your computers talk to the AmazonAWS server cluster, that is how you access your node internationally.

If you make a software that is good and free and functional, and loved by its userbase, you won't earn any points by going commercial and screwing over said userbase that supported it in its infancy, with a poorly thought ot money-grab scheme, no-less.

Stay with version 1.4.111, and don't update the smartphone app. Or you can migrate to an alternative.

Garbage software

Didn't work on the enterprise.

It's slow as heck for syncing, about 10 minutes or more.

Closed source, not open source.

You can tail in the logs, it connects the deconnects and reconnects at will. Yeah, no thanks!

Don't install, look for something else!

Be careful

about Resilio Sync Sep 2013

I was very excited at first with the speed of this. (It was going to solve my problem of Spideroak slow as molasses syncing)
However I was using btorrent sync to sync up my work files across 3 devices, then I added a 4th the other day. I'm not sure if that's what did it, but all my work files were overwritten by older versions.
Luckily I keep multiple backups, if I can find them.
I am looking at a backup made on 9/20 and I have files in it as recent as 9/20. In my actual workfolder (synced with bittorrent sync) however the newest file is from 9/17. And a very, very important file has a modified date of 9/17 in the backup, but in actual workfolder it's got a date of 8/31. Not cool.
I'm not sure if it was the adding of the 4th device that did it, but I just noticed it and I added the device late last week.

So be careful with this one for now it has great potential but appears to have a serious problem at this point. Never forget to backup!
