Sync is a file transfer app with full sync, backup and restore features.
Local drive is free. Removable and Cloud drives are available via in app purchase at the Sync Shop.
A 'drive' is a local storage unit or a cloud storage service where files and data can be stored, e.g. Disk drive, Dropbox, Box, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Amazon S3, etc.
A 'source' is a local drive that provides files or data to be uploaded to other drives or receives files downloaded from other drives.
A 'task' is a collection of sources with a target drive, through which a sync, backup or restore operation can be performed.
The app can perform:
* Full Sync: compares and synchronises files at two locations, deleted files in one location are deleted at the other, while new files at one location are uploaded to the other
* Backup Sync: upload changed files from sources to the destination drive
* Restore Sync: download changed files on a drive to target sources
* FILE MANAGER: list and browse files and folders on a drive, upload or download files to and from a drive, delete/rename files and folders on a drive.
File transfers are performed in tasks and you can create as many tasks for any drive, and with as many sources as you prefer.
When you create a task, you will
1. add a list of sources that point to the data you want to backup or restore. For files, this will be the folder containing the files.
2. add a destination drive and then select a destination folder on the drive where the data will be uploaded to or downloaded from.
Each source in a task can have a 'path'. A source path is a folder name, relative to the current task's drive destination folder ,
where a source's files are uploaded to during a backup or downloaded from during restore.

Hoping for better future releases
Great potential for syncing across cloud drives, but very short on usability and it has a few quirks.
-Syncing with enterprise personal google drives works fine, but It cannot find team enterprise google drives.
-There is no icon on the task bar when its running, you need to relaunch the application ( but it maintains state).
-Executing tasks is a little clunky, I’m still not sure how to do this, I just keep clicking around until the tasks starts.
It would be a very useful app If these could be fixed .
Useless on its own
Does not recognize hard-wired drives as permanent, considers all external drives as "removable", requiring in-app purchase to provide any functionality at all.
App looks like it is good but to do anything you have to purchase
App looks like it is good but to do anything you have to purchase another app to complete what you need to Sync onto. For instance, I want to Sync my photos to an external drive. In order to do that I need to pay $1.99 for the additional app to do what I want to do with this app. So, it is SAD that they did not sell you an app for $5.00 that does it all instead of downloading to find they want more money. I am not even guaranteed that it will do what I want after I purchase it. Here goes……WELL I AM BACK. THIS IS WORSE THAN I THOUGHT, IT MAY WORK BUT I SURE CANT GET IT UP AND SYNCING ANYTHING. I paid the extra money and I’m right where I was at before I paid it. Now I will say that I am used to Windows that seems to work more logically than Mac BUT I thought the whole point behind Mac was that anyone could use it. Disappointed!
Developer Response ,
Sync between two folders on your local drive is free and will always be free, you can use that to test if the app works or not .
Sync to any external drive or cloud storage is a paid feature available via an in-app purchase at the Sync Shop.
