To complicated to set up (or problem with guide)

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

I'm looking for a new sync of a couple of macs and found this as a promising service. I started with the personal to see how it worked out with my workflow. I still do not know as I newer passed the set up. The guide was big but I never understand what to put in the boxes, might have missed something when I jumped back and forth between the different OS. I'm pleased there was an uninstaller in the set up. This might be a good service but maybe only for the technical users.

Universelles, zuverlässiges Tool für Cloud-Nutzung, Sync und Backup für alle gängigen OS

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

Ich nutze TeamDrive seit über einem Jahr und es hat sich als sehr zuverlässig erwiesen, eingesetzt auf Geräten unter Windows 10, Android 4-6, iOS 9.x und OS X 10.11.x

Für mein Anwendungsszenario waren folgende Pluspunkte entscheidend:

  • Ende-zu-Ende-Verschlüsselung
  • Nutzung von beliebigem Cloud-Speicher per WebDAV
  • Gleichzeitige Nutzung mehrerer Storage-Anbieter möglich
  • Automatische Synchronisierung zwischen verschiedenen Geräten
  • Mobilzugriff über Apps
  • Nutzbar als Cloud-Backup-Tool
  • Automatische Versionierung

Es gibt noch weitere Funktionen wie Freigaben, Benachrichtigungen etc., die ich jedoch als Privatanwender nicht nutze.
Die Nutzung ist für Privatanwender kostenlos, es muss jedoch einmal pro Tag die Privatnutzung per Klick bestätigt werden.

TeamDrive just works - and works extremely well

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

Been using TeamDrive for about 6 months. It quickly became my favorite cloud storage/sync tool by a large margin. I have never had a problem with it. I use it from Win 7, Win 10 and Android. Love the file versioning. UI is very, very straightforward (or just use your local device's file manager and/or apps). Integrates extremely well with Windows.

TeamDrive has best features, especially for those who modify synced files

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

Here's what I look for in a syncing tool:

  • sync of multiple, user-specified directories
  • automatic sync triggering when files are changed
  • conflict detection
  • versioning
  • sync of external drives
  • end-to-end encryption
  • able to sync read-only files

I use TeamDrive 3 because it is the only application I've found that meets these requirements, and I have looked at many (see below).

FILE CONFLICTS

The main problem with other tools is the lack of conflict detection and versioning features. If all you want to do is synchronize the creation and deletion of files (pictures for example), then many syncing tools will work for you. But if you modify files and want to keep them in sync, then most tools fall flat. When files are modified, there is always the possibility that multiple users (or multiple computers of a single user) will simultaneously open the same file and edit it. Many syncing tools simply overwrite the shared version whenever a user closes it. This means that if multiple users open a file simultaneously, all changes are lost except those from the last user to close the file. That's a recipe for losing huge amounts of work! It amazes me that so many people are willing to live with this kind of problem. TeamDrive does it right -- triggers syncing whenever you write a file, and keeps all the modified versions. It alerts you immediately to any conflict with an on-screen notification box. Then you can inspect the conflicting versions and do any needed merging.

Dropbox marks conflicted versions, but doesn't notify you that a conflict has occurred. That really doesn't solve the problem.

ABLE TO SYNC READ-ONLY FILES

This may sound like a strange requirement. It is on my list because I sync some encrypted files, and many encryption programs automatically mark encrypted files as read-only.

OTHER

TeamDrive has many additional strong features that others have commented on. I would just add that TeamDrive has a better manual than most.

Here are the other programs I looked at, and in some cases, tried out:

  • Dropbox
  • SpiderOak
  • SugarSync
  • CX
  • CloudMe
  • DirSync Pro
  • OneSync
  • iFolder
  • Synkron
  • Areca
  • iomega
  • JungleDisk
  • iBackup
  • Replicator
  • Allway Sync
  • BatchSync
  • BestSync
  • Cubby
  • FreeFileSync
  • GoodSync
  • Insync
  • ownCloud
  • qFileSync
  • Stash
  • SyncBack
  • syncplicity
  • TreeComp
  • vuBrief
  • Wuala

Only tool I trust critical data

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

I know and had a look at many applications for sharing data via the cloud to multiple devices. TeamDrive is easy to use, lightweight, supports a wide range of end points (I use Windows, Android, iPhone) and the only application I can completely trust with critical and confidential data. Way to go!

AAA+ TopTool!

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

I love TD.
It´s fast, feels secure, and i like the fact that my data is stored in the EU^^
I can easily create a cloud-folder, encrypt & upload my files to it.
Later download them from everywhere via Windows/Linux/Andriod/IOS (there´s also a portable Version), while they are decrypted when they have reached my HDD!
Also i can invite friends/create groups (which i can admin) for easy/secure sharing of my/our work
or just parts of it.
Another great feature is the possibility to setup and run my own TD-Server!.
That´s all i want. My data, just for me (or people i add).

The free version comes with 2GB free space, for diect use.

Best software for encrypted sync of private docs

I use this software on Mac and I'm really impressed. It's very secure and easy to use. There is no alternative software with the same features.

Security Comparison: TeamDrive vs. ownCloud

about TeamDrive and Dropbox · · Helpful Not helpful

Dropbox polarized within the IT departments. From the executive board up to the ordinary employees, people rely on the popular cloud storage service. This is mainly due to the ease of use that is not provided by internal IT departments today. In particular two in Germany developed solutions attack here, which allow companies to implement their own DropBox similar functions within a self-managed IT infrastructure, TeamDrive and ownCloud. TeamDrive represents a fully commercial and proprietary approach. ownCloud an open source approach, but also offers a commercial version. Both claim the title of “Dropbox for the Enterprise”. However, if we are moving exactly in this environment, the issue of security plays a very important role.

Here is the original review

Teamdrive rocks!

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

I tested Teamdrive about 3 months, so I can say: It still works without any problems. I can synchronize my data between my workstations and my notebooks. But one thing I missing: The mobile apps!
Otherwise teamdrive is the best alternative to dropbox, sugarsync etc.. You can hold your datas on your own server - this is the reason why I left dropbox.

5 stars for teamdrive!

Nice tool

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

Having a personal server set up on my NAS box this makes a pretty cool alternative to other file cloud services, where my harddisk is the only limitation. Security on device instead of server is giving me a much better feeling storing private data on it compared to uncrypted solutions. Android app in preparation makes it a real top app!

Up to now: My favourite sync tool

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful

Up to now, I tried several online storage and syncing tools and services (like Wuala, SpiderOak and SugarSync). What I always dislikes was that I had to transfer my data to the internet without exactly knowing where it would finally end. With TeamDrive I now have a possibility to use my very own server, which is the killer feature for me, so: thums up! I evaluated the software and am quite happy with it.
