Are there any free versions of Sync available?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,  well I see the old BTSYNC was finally removed from the FreeBSD ports tree.  So I was intending to install the new version, and decided to hop on to the web site and do some reading first.  I get the impression there are no free versions of Resilio Sync available anymore. Is that correct? if not can someone point me to the URL of the free to use product page?  BTW I am totally cool with paying for a product, after all people gotta make a living right.  My only concern is that I use FreeBSD OS, and I know who have already been burned by buying a product only for the vendor to say yeah we are pulling support for FreeBSD.  There are many other currently free competing products I could try, but I don't want to.

Also, if/when I install the new product can I reuse my old existing configuration and keys, or must I (or should I) start from scratch. No issue there either, just don't want to if I don't have to.

EDIT: The Sync Home page seems to suggest there is a free version available, but another page suggest "Free to try for 14 days", or is that only for business use?

"Sync Home" is free for personal use: https://www.resilio.com/platforms/desktop/

"Sync Home Pro" and "Sync Family Pro" are the same app, but with the Pro features unlocked ("Home" has a Pro license for 1 user, "Family" has a Pro license for 5 users), for personal use. "Sync for Business" is the same app, but the license allows commercial use.

All of this info is available on the front page for Sync Home: https://www.resilio.com/individuals/

Well the paid plans are detailed quite well and clearly, but no where on any page can you find where an equal amount of effort was put into showing that a free-to-use indefinitely version is available. And I respect that.

All that is available is a red "Free Download" button, but that does not mean its free to use indefinitely. I have downloaded lots of products for free that require some sort of money some time afterwards.
