Hey, looking for a file sync solution. We used Google Drive for a while but we had some data loss, unreliable synching, etc. Moved over to Citrix ShareFile and having more reliability issues.
We have a small team of 8 people and need something that is reliable. Looking to Synology NAS, but if anyone has experience with a service/product that is reliable ( and ideally fast ) I would love to hear.
I'm a team of 2; myself & my wife BUT we use a single DROPBOX account.
I hear great things about https://www.dropbox.com/business…, BUT am unable to justify the cost as they have a minimum of 5 licenses (I think).
- We use DropBox for business and it syncs up our files very well, both for Windows and Mac users.vero_vandal
- Dropbox Business is expensive, but it does keep your stuff recoverable forever. Also the Team Folders are great.evilpeacock
- But why not two "Personal" Dropbox accounts? $200 a year for two terabytes seems like a steal to me.evilpeacock
Any reliability issues? The problem we are having is that sometimes our files don't sync...
Clients and work I was using Google Drive but I've quit almost everything by Google.
Friends I was using Copy but Barracuda closed it.
Personally I use ownCloud.
Around me everyone uses Dropbox, it's like Microsoft and Google, it's everywhere.
- +1000 for ownCloud.meffid
- OwnCloud's file are on a hard drive in your home right? If you house burn down you'd lose everything...Bennn
- must not be like that, I can have them in a server like DreamHost for example.oey
- Have used ownCloud and Dropbox for 1 year now, and have to say ownCloud really does the job. Just get yourself a good managed server and you will not regret it.riskunlogic
I haven't had any issues with Dropbox in the three years we've used it. It's really good software.
you have spideroak and sugarsync as well
question: why don't you use dropbox to start with?
just curious about your reasons.
dropbox. dropbox. dropbox.
I have been using Mega for a couple of years. You get 50Gb for free. I like it and it's reliable. Thy also offer plans up to 4 TB
- Does this work with teams, where you can select certain files to sync with different members?ArmandoEstrada
- I have an account...ArmandoEstrada
- I can easily share stuff and send links.
It's like Dropbox but with a 50GB free ;)
I also use Dropbox though. Just give it a try and see by yourself maybe?nbq
- The thing is how does Mega give that away for free? The original creator (Kim Dot Com) sold it in 2015 and doesn't trust it anymore...evilpeacock
- lol @evilpeacock...do you trust dropbox, google drive, or any other? If you need security and privacy you should set up your cloud: https://owncloud.org…uan
- I "trust" all cloud services pretty much the same. Any major scandals would hurt Dropbox, et al (they've had one minor incident) because they're a pay service.evilpeacock
- So it's in their best interest to "stay on the level". Remember, Apple and Dropbox dropped Amazon S3 storage for their own because of the whole NSA thing.evilpeacock
- If my Dropbox was compromised I'd lose little to nothing. Important things are encrypted and I keep a full copy locally (with additional backup).evilpeacock
Im with Dropbox since years, tried Google and Crashplan. Dropbox is def the best by far.
Yup, I reluctantly joined dropbox a few years ago when all my clients seemed to be using it. It's nice when someone sends you a link and you have simply merge it into your account. So I've got dozens of folders synced with dozens of clients all on one page.
I use OneDrive and Drive now and then, but neither seem as intuitive.
OneDrive does have a ton of free 200GB deals out there for 2 years, I think. I know WD (or maybe Seagate) gives it with their external drives.
Dropbox is really good, I just wish I could selectively sync a file/folder by right clicking so I can use it to back up everything to the dropbox and remove from my computer.
I also wish there was a way of mounting the dropbox server like an external drive, for easier access to online files without downloading. Found this the other day, but not tried it yet: http://www.expandrive.com/
If you want to roll your own with an open source solution, I use Pydio (community)
Thanks everyone's. Our issue has been about reliability. Like I mentioned, there have been occasions when google loses data, unreliable sync etc. We will give drop. Box a shot.
One more option: https://www.carbonite.com/en/clo…
I've not tried it, but their cloud backup is good. Support has been pretty good too.
- We don't need backpus, but team collaboration and fie synching (dropbox, drive, etc)ArmandoEstrada
- Carbonite's backup service used to be so bad I'd never consider them even if they fixed all the problems. They software client was shit compared to Backblaze.evilpeacock
- Or maybe I'm confusing them with Crashplan... can't remember.evilpeacock
- Been fine here, used it for years. #1 rated in some comparisons, I'd guess it was Crashplan that sucked.formed
okay, I'm moving to nextcloud.
