    Syncthing acts as a server and client for sharing files and filesystems using it's own protocol. Rclone allows users to mount S3 buckets and other cloud stores, which Syncthing doesn't support.

    It is a good alternative to Rclone for Windows Users. With a nice GUI, it is much easier to use than rclone, and does not need WINSCP to mount cloud storages as local drivers.
