  1. Hi Merk, We're sorry you are having these experiences with Sync and this is not the intended behavior. As you know, Roman and his team are here to help and anything you can do to help them narrow down these issues will best help them get resolved. As I've said before, our goal is to have a great free edition of Sync. We want people to be happily using Sync, whether they are a Pro customer or not. Obviously there are some issues that we need to resolve, but sometimes these are complex and need user-provided information to debug them. Since this is an issue that we cannot reproduce in our la
  2. Hello all existing developers and those interested in using the Sync API... v2 of the Sync API is now available! Major highlights are:- RESTful API to significantly ease investigation, development, and testing- Increased number of calls from 14 to 42, exposing almost all Sync engine functionality.- Much improved API documentation.- Sample code and a sample application on GitHub.- Formalized program for deployment in production and commercial environments. To learn all about it, please visit getsync.com/api. On that site is an FAQ that will answer some of your questions. -ErikP
  3. Hi syberjj…thank you for your thoughts on Sync Pro. Your initial thoughts did not go unnoticed, as many on the team read through each thread. I understand where you are coming from and many options were discussed/evaluated. I have sent you a personal message so we can discuss this further. -ErikP
  4. With regards to the new API...stay tuned for news very soon. We'll post something here as well as on the blog. https://blog.getsync.com -ErikP
  5. Hello Antony...you can do what you're desiring in both Sync 2.0 and 1.4. Are you and your wife's computers using the same identity (Options > My Devices)? If so, this will cause the problem you are describing since the folder will automatically be added in the default folder location. If not, when another device connects to the folder, an option is presented for where to save the folder. Just choose the folder you would like on the other device (not using the default location). If you're running Sync 2.0 and would like to change the path, one way is to disconnect the folder and then re-co
  6. Hello everyone, I want to ensure that all those here understand that we’ve been following all your feedback; every post in the forum is read and discussed, so please know that we are listening. We want our teams to participate actively in the forum, but we also make the ask that discussion remains constructive and does not turn hostile. I’d like to provide some additional context around our thinking behind rolling out Sync 2.0’s new pricing model, which has been discussed here. From the start, we did not want to pursue an ad-based model. And our mission is to not require the collecti
  7. Hello everyone...I posted this on another thread, but wanted to ensure everyone understood how the 10 folder limit worked... We’ve committed to developing a free version of Sync alongside Pro, and will continue to do so. With Sync 2.0’s free version, there are no limits on folder capacity, nor will there be any performance throttling. 10 active folders is a lot of syncing activity and we feel that those who need more capabilities will benefit much from Sync Pro. 10 folders can be added to Sync and there can be any number of folders enclosed inside that high-level folder, which will all synch

  9. Thanks everyone for your comments. I just want to clarify that there are no plans for ads in Sync. Just because a good portion of Sync will be free to use does not mean that it will be subsidized by ads. The debate on perpetual software licenses vs software subscriptions is interesting. Some key customer advantages to a subscription model is lower entry prices, no surprise upgrade charges (especially for new OS support), an no add-on to get technical support. With perpetual licenses, in many cases, "pay once" is mostly a myth. It's just less deterministic as to when the upgrade charge will c
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Stay tuned for the Sync 2.0 site... We have a similar page to what you linked to and it is even getting better soon. http://www.getsync.com/download
  11. Thank you to those who have provided constructive feedback on this thread. Let me see if I can provide some additional info as I do want to be as forthcoming as possible about what’s happening at BitTorrent. A very detailed feature list will be available when Sync 2.0 is released. We will also be posting an Alpha build to the forum in the not too distant future, which will come with a lot of details. We hope many of you appreciate us providing some information in advance instead of surprising you on release day. Until then, let me add a little more color to the Pro features I alluded to in th
