    Sync for mobile: The Clear-function

    When using Selective Sync in mobile version, I can long press and select "clear" to clear what was synced. I noticed it also clears out non-sync-files, ie if I synced a RAR file and uncompressed it, when clearing, it deleted the unpacked file(s) as well. I would like to see a setting that either lets me keep the file without asking, or asking if I want to keep other files or delete everything.

    Sync on own hosted server?

    Thanks for the link. I have the tiniest amount of knowledge in Linux and I wonder if its possible to have the package extracted, ie have it run like any webservice like OwnCloud or Wordpress or such software one has on the server. Is it possible to use it like that? edit: Would it require a Virtual Private Server?

    A wider range of sharing options

    In this case, yes it would work. So I guess my proper feature-wish should be that I should be able to exclude sharing links from "Synced" mode

    Sync on own hosted server?

    I don't know the proper technical term. Is it possible to install Sync on the same kind of server where I host my website? I can choose between linux- and windows-server.

    A wider range of sharing options

    Thank Marko Precisely. However, If I want to share something just between "me" and "group of friends", it wont work as it is right now. The problem isn't really that anyone within any of my devices sees those files (because basically, my devices consist of me, myself and I), but rather that some of the devices are meant to have the sync-all setting and therefor, anything I share to my friends (and that is meant for them) will also end up on the device that syncs anything you feed it with.
  6. Thank you Helen, I posted a suggestion in the request-forum, regarding offering this ability in future versions of Sync.

    A wider range of sharing options

    Hi! What caught my attention and had me buy Sync was the ability to share any file located anywhere on the computer with anyone. True freedom compared to eg Dropbox, OneDrive and the likes. Then I discovered Synced-mode which was great, since it offers a maintenance-free system where you sync what you need on one computer and can be assured it's going to be synced on the others. Unfortunately, those great features are offered in an either-or fashion: either a network of linked devices, or regular share between different persons. I would love to see both those options available: I might want to sync all my photos to the NAS; while adding a school-project between me and one of my class-mates, and another teamworking project which I share with another bunch of people. Without having those folders synced to the NAS. If I dare to bring in a third case, I would even suggest more than just one link-network. Why? Because the Sync-mode is a great tool that I might want to have in more than one case (eg the Computer <-> NAS link). Thanks!
  8. Thanks Helen. This means that I'll have to skip Synced mode for now, until there is a feature that allows users to work in two "environments", "inside my devices" and "outside my devices". Where can I send feature suggestions? Otherwise, it feels like the way it works now, its either-or. I believe it would be a richer experience to offer both cases; a link within you can share stuff in synced mode, and another case where you can share other things meant for people outside your own device link.
  9. Thanks Moe, what you explain, I understand. However, if I do share the Vacation Photos which are meant to the friend, my other computers that are set up as "Sync All", they will also be shared. I want to have separate shares, ie the ones for my friends are only for my friends and should be excluded from My Devices. Is that possible?

    Permissions and My Device

    Hello! Do permissions have any purpose in a share among My Devices?
  11. Hello, I am a rather new user and I am learning new things all the time. Recently, I linked an amount of my computers into My Devices. For the sake of learning, I set them to different types of syncing. The one that is set to Sync All will receive data without any manual input. If I want to share a folder to someone outside My Devices, how do I prevent it to be part of My Devices? In other words, the computer with the setting Sync All shall not take part of this share.
  12. I tried the "synced" mode and it works great! Is there a way to add a share that will NOT be automatically synced on devices with "synced" on? Not everything i share is part of the same device-network. I might want to share something to a friend, etc.
  13. Hi! Option 2 seems to be more what I am looking for. I assume this works no matter if its a NAS or regular Windows client, right?
  14. Hi! I bought Sync recently, hence very new to it. I am looking for a solution that my NAS mirrors stuff on my computer(s). The idea is like this: Everytime I need to make something available from outside home, I want to add it to the share (like, eg put it on dropbox). When I shut down the computer (after finishing syncing), I want it to be available on the NAS (or another server that is turned on, eg Raspberry Pi) without the need to go to the NAS and accept the share. Is that doable?
