Selective Sync, Is It Possible?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

I am looking for a way to sync only selected folders to a device.

 

I want to share a whole folder with another computer using one only sync key.

Then, I wan to be able to go to the other computer, see a list of all folders available, but chose wich ones I want to sync at a given time.

 

This would be very useful for large folders from my PC/server where I don't need all files on my laptop all the time, but I want them always available and want to be able to "enable/disable" syncing them as I please.

 

Is that possible? I don't see any features for it, even though the mobile version seems to have this feature built in.

 

I also saw that sync has an own api, but I don't see any way this can be customized in there without having to make changes to the client. Any ideas?

Hey there.

 

That's one of the things being announced for sync version 2 to be available as part of the payed version only.

As long as there is no version 2 available: Nope, it's not possible at the moment.

 

You need to wait for version 2 being released and then check for a pro license.

 

 

Regards,

Stephan.

Hi Stephen, is there anything on how much the paid version will cost? I would be ok with paying a fee if it's reasonable, but if I am paying I would expect some additional support (for example: there is still no oficial sinology NAS app).

 

@syberjj, Consider adding your voice/vote to this thread in the Feature Request forum.

Will do. Thanks Marko

I read that, and these are my thoughts about the pricing:

 

My thoughts:

  • It's unthinkable to charge a fee from every user.
    • If I pay for my shares, I have to be able to share them with free users and they must get those advanced features when accessing my folders. Don't restrict my usage just because my customers/friends/family don't have upgraded versions. You must charge ever user that wishes to CREATE advanced folders, but not every user that wishes to ACCESS them. This is important!
  • U$ 40,00 a year per user doesn't work. Make it a monthly payment of U$ 4,00/month and give the home user the option to go yearly for U$ 20-25 a year. Then, charge more if more than 5 different users need access to the folders (company environment) upping it to U$ 40,00/year.
    • Why? This makes it easy to understand, transparent, and accessible for personal use. Your objective here should be: Don't restrict personal users, give them a cheaper version to pay for and get all features. Or you will end up with just a bunch of free users complaining about the high price and no one will pay for it because it is not popular. I am a private user, and I wish to pay, but make it reasonable.

If you follow these tips, I will be totally open to paying a fee, but make it reasonable. Notice that spotify/Netflix charge users 5-10 U$ a month for development, hosting, streaming, AND all the costs for the content, so my pricing model should be more than reasonable.
