  1. yes, this is ridiculous. please give us the option to turn this feature off in the settings
  2. Any update on this issue? If they cannot create a true "backup" functionality they should change the name on the mobile apps since its deceiving, but I hope they can find a way to make it work properly since that would be very very helpful! I always liked synctoy's language around this.. synchronize = 2-way sync (sync) echo = 1-way sync (read-only sync) contribute = 1-way sync that doesn't sync deletions, only new files & folders (what "backup" should mean)
  3. Would love an update addressing this issue. It seems like such a simple concept, sync should mean it SYNC's files, backup should mean it BACKS UP files. either change the name or fix the function. I hope they can find a way to implement a true backup function- that would be very very useful.
  4. 100% agree. I was under the assumption that "BACKUP" meant what it does in every other form of data management and should especially be true when moving data from a mobile device to a computer. I had scheduled system images of my phone OS to be backed up to my server every sunday night. Each one is ~2GB so after a few I need to clean house on the phone's storage. I just realized when going to restore a backup that it had SYNC'd my changes and deleted the files on my server. Luckily I accidentally left the archive function on for that folder and was able to pull the files from that, but this is a VERY strange relationship they have created, especially when they are pushing the concept of backing up photos using this method Any thoughts BT? Am I misunderstanding this function? Is this an known issue?
