Moving to Resilio from Goodsync, but I do have some issues


Recommended Posts

Hi Resilio,

 

I am planning to move to Resilio Sync from Goodsync.  There is some feature that I do need but Resilio is currently lacking.  I am wondering if you guys have plans to implement this?

 

1. A way to schedule a job to periodically to run every X hour on a job/per folder basis.  I have tried the scheduling in Resilio Sync, but it doesn't work like that.  The reason is that some folder might change VERY frequently , I would rather not let it to trigger the sync.  Instead, I would like the folder sync periodically every 2 hours or so.

 

2. A way to do ignore list / Include list on a per job/folder basis via GUI?  

 

3. On file change, a way to specify how many seconds/minutes before Resilio sync to trigger the sync on a per job/folder basis via GUI?

 

Thanks for your answer in advance.

So thats what i know at the Moment.

1. You need the PRO Version to schedule the jobs

Goodsync and Resilio (same issue for Syncthing) are different in some feature points. Goodsync is not a P2P software as Resilio, is more a very good automatic FreeFileSync, I mean that with simple words. To have a view to your points, so

  1. is answered
  2. is not implemented now. If you want, use Syncthing, which have in the Peer settings of the GUI a window for that.
  3. Normally each 600 sec. you have a new indexing. Otherwise use Powersettings.

I have checked the Pro version on schedule.   The schedule in the PRO version is only a turn on and off global switch.  In the Pro version, If you turn off from 12:00 to 2:00 and turn on at 2:00 to 4:00, it STILL allow you to run 100 times sync in 2:00 to 4:00 if they see 100 times file change during that period.   

 

Instead, I would want to run the sync job every X hours on a per folder basis.  So, I might want run Job A  once every 2 hour while Job B to run once every 3 hours.
