Sync simplifies our project workflow and offsite backup needs

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Overall: 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.

Syncing at it's finest!

Pros: - The ability to share individual files or folders.

- Fast file syncing.

- Ability to see the progress of the sync.

- Multiple ways to invite people to share the files/folders.

- It doesn't impede the speed of the computer/internet.

- It can be used on multiple devices.

Cons: - Can't really think of any. We've been very pleased.

Overall: We appreciate Sync for the fact that we can share files quickly between different physical locations, that we can choose files or folder to share and who to share them with, that we can see the history of the syncing process as well as the progress of a current sync, and the fact that the syncing is seamless (we never have to think about it). It is also a great way to automatically backup files to another computer/device and, again, never have to think about it. We've never had a technical issue either.

Pros: The peer to peer and server to server syncing is fantastic. We use it primarily for syncing servers together for multiple locations. Nearly instantaneous syncing, even with millions of files. Truly best in class performance, as long as you have some fairly beefy hardware.

Cons: The support. Absolutely terrible. Intuit or AT&T levels of bullshit terrible. Insultingly, amazingly, brutally awful. Might as well come with a caveat emptor label. Pretty sure Google Translate is involved, I also suspect infinite monkeys on keyboards.

Overall: Despite the total excrescence that is their support, the product is actually so good that we use it anyway. Just make sure that you have plenty of RAM, whatever you think you need, double it.

Pros: Ease of licensing. Performance. it really works great, and if I were not concerned about some of the dangerous caveats, I would switch our organization from Dropbox.

Cons: The fact that there is no read only mode that prevents people from deleting files globally is a deal-breaker. Also, the fact that someone can come back online and their time stamp being different can cause an overwrite of newer files, is the other deal-breaker. We can only use it very selectively because of these too big risks. If and when these issues become resolvedd, we would expand our usage significantly

Overall: Very good for limited use situations

Sync is an excellent way to synchronize data securely across machines.

Pros: I used to be a heavy Dropbox user but have migrated to Resilio Sync for all of my data sync needs. The product is much more secure and does not quietly change your data without notice. It also truly works in a cross-platform setup and can optionally save files that are deleted or replaced by a remote node.

Cons: Sync requires a little bit of planning and work to set up effectively. The administration is typically done in the browser which may not be to everyone's taste. File system overlays would be nice to have.

Gets the job done, but limited options

Pros: Fairly simple interface (other than licensing). Works over low bandwidth.

Cons: Does not have a rich options for selection or for transfer of attributes.

Overall: Overall, works very well for our purposes (transferring files over iffy/slow Internet connections to our China partner, where others timed out or were blocked by the Great Firewall). Had a license renewal failure that cost us a day of file transfer with our partner. File permissions don't transfer cleanly.

A solid product - great for site-to-site replication

Pros: Once this software is running, it works great with little intervention. Features are strong and we're able to control where data is syncing pretty easily.

Cons: There isn't a lot of easy to read diagnostic information. I ended up finding log files and reading through them to know what was going on, without a good read out inside the application.

Overall: Overall, I'm happy with Resilio, we're a non-profit and it works great to keep files synced between workstations and servers and between our onsite and offsite file servers.

Pros: I use this tool to work on my desktop computer when I am in my office, but also to have access to specific projects on my laptop on the go.

Cons: I've found that sometimes files are corrupted if the program syncs when I don't have the program closed on one device. I have to be sure the program is closed before syncing. I wish there were better instructions regarding this.

Overall: I am able to enjoy my 2 big screens at the office, but still have a project underway on the go.
