Can’t Browse Files in List View
Update: latest version fixed the bug I had written about.
The app seems to do what you’d expect regarding viewing files that are synced on the cloud. One gripe is display of long file names. Most apps show the start and end of the file name with ... in the middle whereas Sync just truncates it with ... Seeing the last part of the file name is important to me. (The file name font could be slightly smaller too IMO.)
Looked Like A Promising Dropbox Replacement
Dropbox can’t be trusted, so I came across Sync in my search for an alternative. It looks good on paper, and the design is clean and simple, fairly intuitive.
However where it falls flat, and I mean dead flat, is I’ve had a couple instances of destructive data loss from sync failures (as in synchronization). Thank goodness I had those files backed up elsewhere, as they weren’t recoverable via Sync’s file recovery feature.
Second, there is an arbitrary sharing limitation of the number of folders (not users, total folders) that can be involved in sharing with other users. So even if you share with a single other user, as soon as one of you creates more than a couple folders within a shared folder, those folders and all the files contained within are not shared. There’s not even a notification telling you why, so you’ll likely be frustrated trying to figure out what’s going wrong. This is plain stupidity by the company, because I was in the middle of converting my sixth friend/family member over to Sync from Dropbox when I discovered this limitation that renders the entire service useless to me.
Since then not only have I not told anyone else about Sync, but I moved all 6 of those people back onto our shared Dropboxes (now using Cryptomator for sensitive files).
Oh well, their loss.
I have tried in vain to upload files using the desktop website, and it is horrid and dysfunctional. Files upload much slower than other providers and transfers often break or present errors halfway through. I have had this service for a couple of months on a paid plan. I have a couple hundred gigabytes of data that have been waiting for months to upload to Sync. I have tried to upload to Sync using Sync’s website, desktop app, and (desperately) even mobile, and every single time it errors out. This has been done via different ISPs with speeds ranging up to 100+ MB/sec, yet everytime, upload speeds are painfully slow and the transfers error out.
I agree with a previous reviewer’s sentiment that for all the features present, Sync really is not worth the pain inflicted. I have been giving them money for a months or three now, but if I cannot upload my data, the features this service provides are just useless.
