I just got an invite to the alpha, and I am already using it to sync a metric shitload of files. My impressions are mixed, but this is not wher eI want to write them down. I am a proffessional software testers, and I instinctively come up with various test Ideas. Because I have limited time to ACTUALLY perform this test in the near future, i thought i could at least write about it here. My test idea is described in the attached picture. Ask for clarifications, if necessary. <==== look at the picture now, then continue reading ===> <LATER EDIT> </LATER EDIT> <LATER EDIT2> image embedding of any kind seems to be broken on this forum. use this dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uqiqiebi25ax2cc/SyncApp%20test1.png </LATER EDIT> there would be a varying number of machines from each of the described three categories. Windows path notations are used, but the test idea is not limited in terms of OS architecture. My questions would be the following: - how would users expect this to work? - how do the developers expect this to work? - has anyone tried it yet? - does it work? - should it work? (the nuances of the questions are actually relevant to me, and are not written just for artistic value) please add any commentary on the subject, other than what i posted.
After a share is completed, I would be interested in a button or rightclick menu option to do a MD5 integrity check on each file in the share automatically to make sure the hard drive or data is not corrupted, and that the data is exacting as it is copied. I am actually using this as a RAID across a 1TB harddrive and would like to make sure the one folder is exact compared to the other folder. I dont care how long it takes. that is not a factor. I have had corrupted torrents and aftera forced recheck, it drops the damaged package, and just redownloads a new packet to fill in the spot. It would be great to have that kind of file security on this system as well. This isnt just for the software, sometimes the hardware such as a harddrive or something goes bad and will not write data correctly to a particular sector or seg. I would like to be able to verify after that the data is exacting regardless of all else. Would it be too hard to integrate to make a VERIFY INTEGRITY button and make it MD5 Hash possibly files in the structure systematically?
