  1. What button on the gui do I press to start a sync? My folder synced with android on install. Not done it for a day.
  2. For every posted thumbs up on this topic, there are at least 1,000 people that initially passed up on this program in playstore (name of sync, not sync/backup) And another few thousand that installed, tried, and tactilely installed bit-torrent sync. Not sure why this was never included to begin with. What is the alternative? Cloud sync? I think not! That leaves one other pay program (that is window or mac, only) that will only work over wifi.
  3. Thanks. I have looked at every category in playstore. All available apps (that I saw) are a backup to a cloud (minus chetahsync - which has the shortcomings that I listed). I do not wish to be cloud dependent for the rest of my life. I think this folly. Could write a book on it, entitled, "Too Big to Fail. Why cloud backup reliance, is stupidity." Not that cloud backup is something I won't take advantage of. I just won't use it as my first line of backup. I use cloud as backup of my two main backups. Ditto, on cloud navigation.
  4. I am not totally convinced that you are right. If you set to read-only, would you get a backup? If you are right, then you are implying you know of a single backup program other than this one? There is not any, other than Chetah sync, which 1. cost money for backup of more than one folder. 2. cannot backup over the cell network. 3. probably platform dependant. In the real world, it makes zero sense (hasn't ever made, since sync was invented) to ever have a true sync. No sense, for a true one. One would always rather archive rather than delete on destination computer. One would always
  5. I just want to add a one or more folders to backup on home computer. I never, ever, ever, ever, want to sync!!!!! When I delete a file on android, it always should stay on computer. Syncing is for idiots. For example, in the 1990's, we could go back into our computer and look at every appointment and note for last ten years of our life. This is a very powerful, valuable $$$$ tool. But syncing looses this ability. To push forward in time, we must clear out finished projects. Syncing, true syncing, deletes forever the record and knowledge of the past. Anyway, I followed all instruct
