The only way I can get the folders to sync as in 1.4 is to turn on sync all.  This is listed as a Sync pro feature, and there is no way to test to see how this will behave in 25 days when the compulsory trial runs out.


From reading the Folder Synchronization Modes help page it becomes less than clear.  There are disconnected, connected and synced modes I am assuming controlled by the disconnect/connect button and the sync all toggle.


Can anyone confirm if you can have sync behaving as in 1.4 in the free version of 2.0 once the sync all toggle disappears?


Disclaimer: Very apprehensive as to the direction Sync has taken since 2.0 has gone live.  Keeping an eye on syncthing as a drop in replacement if it all turns to shit after the remaining 25 days of the trial are up.

fds do you have proof of that because that's not what the "Sync FREE vs Sync PRO" help page says.


Just want to be sure as there is a bit of risk riding on this.


Without Pro, you can only sync all. P

Pro     Save space with placeholder files

When 'Sync all' is turned off, Sync will create placeholder files in your filesystem that can be searched locally. Download only the files you need, when you need them, without having to replicate entire folders on every device.

Yet further down that same page you linked, Sync All is listed as a pro feature as well.....


Agreed - that is a little confusing, and I'll flag that up to the relevant people.


It's the ability to "toggle" "Sync All" that's a Pro feature. For the Free edition, "Sync All" is always on, and so all your files will sync. Pro gives you the ability to switch the Sync All feature off, allowing you to selectively sync.
