Used to be cool, now sells drugs from an alley

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.

Resilio Sync does its job pretty good. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t recommend using the software on a remote computer, as it occasionally stops working: The software seems to have troubles with its log/cache files, hanging while initialization and using 100 % of CPU resources. After a computer restart, usually all preferences, including folders, are gone. At least files are never deleted or corrupted.

Tested with Linux Mint, Raspbian and Android. The bug occurs both on Mint and Raspbian. The Android App seems to be okay.


By far better than the rest

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.


A mess.

When trying to sync my work machine with my backup on my NAS, the first thing it did was overwrite all my local changes with the old code.

Pretty much the exact opposite of what it is supposed to do. And the only way to find out how to restore it, is to manually compare every single file from it's hidden archive folder with the current version in the file system, because it's history is just a long list of transfers. No per-file history information or anything.

Furthermore, the Synology DSM client does not work correctly in Firefox, and keeps asking for username and password, immediately after filling them in.


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!



Great soft
