I have just tried WD Sync! This is getting pretty close to a good product. Thanks for the development.
I feel that we are finally getting closer to a dropbox like application.
To make it clearly obvious what this does, allow me to explain:
e.g. I create a new file on my computer’s harddrive. It is sent to the WD Device. My laptop grabs it and saves it on it’s local harddrive. And vice-versa, ensuring that I have the latest copy on my harddrives.
Let’s say we accidently deleted a file on my laptop? I can see recently deleted files, and restore them.
Let’s say I see a word file, but someone erased the executive summary by accident. I can see recent versions (up to 5), and restore them.
My personal Issues:
I do not see the folder where the sync is occurring when I log in directly into the WD device.
I do not see where I can see the folder with my Cloud Account… although I MAY be my own culprit here, I think I may be logged in as different users. I will test that later. (It was me! This is working fine.)
Very novice friendly, and does not allow options for powerusers (eg - the 5 versions mentioned above, what if I am willing to sacrifice diskspace and keep 200?)
Forces a default share, and not clear where it is within the WD Device. Although this is really an extension of the previous ‘novice friendly’ quote.
Non-existent manual for concepts.
I am EXTREMELY EXCITED that we are now getting this application. I bought a DL4100 early this year, assuming this was part of it from the get go. (I was shocked it wasn’t! )
I cannot wait to see it developed into a more polished application!
Kudo’s to WD for bringing this App to us!
