    The best alternative to Resilio Sync. It transfers your data directly, encrypted, without leaving them on a server in between that belongs to anyone else. It's also free and open source (trustworthy), cross-plaftorm, no need to install, and it achieves blazingly fast speeds.

    Syncthing currently does not support synchronizing external storage (SD card) data while Resilio Sync does good job with it.

    Almost identical in functionality since Resilio is based of this project. However, the community made Linux app is superior to the hacky solution Resilio has in place right now. But on Mac/Win the Resilio app is overall much better than the community apps.

    Syncthing is missing file encryption for nodes. The ability to give a peer access to only the encrypted files that they cannot view/open but seed is unique to Resilio Sync. Helps with nodes running in Clouds / VPS where the storage cannot be trusted to be secure/private.

    It's much more secure. And I can store my most important data straight from my Android devices. It's a win/win.
