    Resilio Sync is great. I like that the program is focused on collaboration through file sharing. The program is very easy to use, just create an ID to identify your account. I find it very advantageous to have the ability to register several devices to upload files from different computers, tablets or smartphones. Since the last update the use of advanced folders is not allowing me to revoke permissions to users, so I must create encrypted folders and migrate the data. I absolutely endorse the use of this tool. With this program you gain security, collaboration and simplicity. I recommend reviewing its characteristics if you are considering acquiring a file backup program that also allows for file sharing. The use of Resilio Sync has many benefits. First, it has options to create standard, advanced and encrypted folders that allow me to create or add different permissions to the users to whom I want to share files. Secondly, simplicity to share files is essential, since it is only necessary to generate a key or link to connect to my colleague's device. Finally, the application is cross platform, so I can synchronize my files from different devices.

    The best thing about Resilio Sync is its high security standards to protect files. The most important features are undoubtedly the file-level deduplication, which allows you to delete repeated data. Another very important feature is the bandwidth control, which can be configured both down and up. Finally, I also appreciate that the synchronization can be selective and not necessarily load a complete directory. I only have two negative comments about this software, the first is that I cannot customize the access links, but must create them again. The other thing I don't like is that files with previous versions take a long time to load. Resilio Sync definitely became our best friend to protect our folders and directories with two-factor authentication. I recommend it for its effectiveness, price and features. The amount of information from files or documents, became unsustainable in the backup computers, so we decided to hire Resilio Sync so that each employee could protect their their documents on their own computer and thus free the servers from the upload of files they receive from collaborators.

    I like to synchronize files on PC from external device, I don't need a fixed IP, with system and username the connection is made. Compatible with all known platforms and integrate into my branded NAS server. Integrate different servers configured with Proxy security. I like to order my files on a remote PC, document control with priority order. Excellent graphical interface to configure everything.

    Overall experience has been good at having multiple office locations keep files shared/sync simply and easily. It has not been completely hands off and I discovered I needed to upgrade memory on NAS devices as Resilio does consume a fair bit of memory and the NAS would kill the Resilio service if memory or CPU useage becomes too high, but through experience and understanding limitations of hardware and software I find it is now highly reliable and I have peace of mind that all peer locations have an update to date version of all work files.
    Runs on NAS and easy to add/share folders for syncing, so running common NAS in multiple offices the common UI/interaction has allowed for quick setup of folders to sync/share
    Would like some better management or dashboard to monitor if peers go off-line or sync status, maybe some easier ability to add folders to ignore list versus having to edit a text file. A right click and re-index function would be useful as had a couple peers say they were synced, or a right click and re-start would be helpful. Would be helpful if there was some ability to lock out people accessing files from other nodes or warn them that someone else has the file open and as such changes can be lost.

    Our experience with Resilio Sync has been positive, due to the overall security of our information, since we are in an industry where this factor is paramount. There have been some hiccups in introducing the system to others we work with, but the pros outweigh the cons for us. There are enough features to mitigate an error any user may makes when sharing company files and projects.
    Love that my information is secure and not stored on servers in unknown locations. I enjoy that I can share folders located anywhere on my PC. The backup "archive" feature is wonderful at ensuring any changes/deletions can be mitigated if unwanted.
    Some challenges when sharing folders with multiple people; occasionally I have to recreate a folder in order for all to be able to view/connect with it, which is problematic when users are located in a variety of locations and most are new to the program. There is some learning curve for some users to understand that the files are not being kept in a 3rd party location, such as file sharing programs where you can view the files online, because they are being stored by the company offering the service.

    As mentioned in the cons section, getting our brain wrapped around how to deploy the solution and address the implications of maintaining files has been our only real challenge. We've had some problems with firewalls in remote locations not allowing us to connect a workstation into the Resilio peer-to-peer network, but this is not the fault of the software but the challenges of dealing with end-user supported remote networks (who do not understand the significance of their choices of firewall settings nor their ability to accommodate our use case).
    Ability to share files among workstations without worrying about data being placed in the hands of a third party
    When more than 2 workstations are involved, the implications of file management between all of these machines can be a significant issue. Resilio provides a great solution, but managing the consequences of using this solution AND having a local file server needs better use case examples to think through how best to deploy the solution.

    I have been using Resilo Sync for about 2 years now in order to distribute large files between multiple workstations, and an off-site server. When poor SFTP / SCP speeds, and a lack of automation began to hamper productivity I chose Reslio Sync as a replacement for manual file transfers and now experience fantastic transfer speeds compared to SFTP/SCP, plus the added benefit of automation! After the initial configuration, I can't say that I've needed to touch Resilio Sync again except to add a new client, but I know great support is available if ever I encounter an issue.
    Lack of automation, poor transfer speeds over SFTP and SCP protocols.
    Automation! Replacement of manual FTP/SCP transfers of large files that were hampered by ISP throttling. Knowing my files are always being synchronized, 24x7x365.
    Absolutely no complaints considering the affordable price for the premium products, and the availability of a generous free trial there is no risk in giving Resilio Sync a shot!

    We replaced Adobe Creative Cloud with Sync after our bandwidth was filled when all our LAN machines were trying to upload to Creative Cloud. We use Sync for working on all of our open projects. I was also able to get an offsite backup running using Sync on a NAS which saves me from physically carrying a RAID drive to and from our office every two weeks.
    I like that it just works. Once it's configured it runs without out. My staff uses the Selective Sync quite a bit to only access the project folders they are working on. The Archive has also saved us a few times.
    I think the trickiest part is understanding the Identity and device connection. I switched our Server to my "own" identity and have run all my devices, (phone, work laptop, Drobo, Server Mac) from the same identity for simplicity. Getting the offsite version configured with the Drobo was a bit tricky and customizing the power preferences so Sync doesn't hammer the hard drives was tricky however the support was helpful.

    This is the perfect solution for backing up your mobile pictures and videos to your own server, file share, or NAS. In addition to "sync" functionality, it also works in backup mode, with a true one-way transfer. In Syncthing, if you delete a picture on your phone, it deletes on your server/NAS/whatever too. Based on the GitHub issues I've read, the Syncthing developers are EXTREMELY resistant to adding any functionality that isn't specifically remote sync (e.g. keep this folder identical to...

    If you make a software that is good and free and functional, and loved by its userbase, you won't earn any points by going commercial and screwing over said userbase that supported it in its infancy, with a poorly thought ot money-grab scheme, no-less. Stay with version 1.4.111, and don't update the smartphone app. Or you can migrate to an alternative.

    Resilio is one of the best tools I have ever seen in this field backing up to NAS but also I tried Gs Richcopy 360, the tool is simple, fast, and affordable. but totally both are very similar.

    I have so many problems with this app. It corrupts modification dates of files, fails to sync things, and breaks Android apps when I try to sync data folders.
