about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

I've been searching for an alternative to GoogleDrive. I don't dislike GoogleDrive, but I need to sync important data over multiple devices.
I decided to try TeamDrive. The website promised high security standards and is available on all major platforms.
So far I'm very happy with TeamDrive. The client can be confusing at first, but there are some tutorials on YouTube to get you started.
The Software gets very intuitive over time. It's fast and integrates very well.
But most importantly, it's safe.

Best alternative to big Cloud services

Over a year ago, I started to work with TeamDrive.
Concluding I must say that this is for me the only option to work with since they provide extraordinary support with and exceptional functioning product.

If I had to criticize one thing, it would be that sometimes in the past I found myself unknowing of some features with TeamDrive. I was struggling a few times with the user interface, but it got better with time.
However, they now do a better job explaining the tools they give at hand with their new video tutorials and written tutorials.

To complicated to set up (or problem with guide)

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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.

I know where you are coming from. I admittedly had same issued, but I would encourage looking again. 3 Years ago things might have been differently and there are even some video tutorials now. It's coming together somewhat.

TeamDrive just works - and works extremely well

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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 Report as spam

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 Report as spam

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 Report as spam

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.

Teamdrive rocks!

about TeamDrive · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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 Report as spam

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 Report as spam

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.

Best synchronisation application

about TeamDrive and Dropbox · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I tested a lot of sync programs and now I'm using TeamDrive for a while and I will stay. The basic and free features is comparable with dropbox, but because of the encryption is more secure. TeamDrive is the only synchronisation application with an certificate of ULD in germany. It garantees powerful data protection and privacy.

The usability is still very good, even with more security. everybody using dropbox wont have problems with teamdrive.

Which of the 4 free Online-Folder-Synchronisation-Services is the best for a user, depends on the user-requirements.
