About this app

Sync is a file transfer app with full sync, backup and restore features, file manager and web server.

Sync supports file management, sync, backup and restore on local drives, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Box and Amazon S3.

* Local drive is free.
* Removable and Cloud drives are available via in app purchase at the Sync Shop.
* Automatic and background sync are not yet supported.


A 'drive' is a local storage unit or a cloud storage service where files and data can be stored, e.g. Disk drive, Dropbox, Box, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Amazon S3, etc.

A 'source' is a local drive that provides files or data to be uploaded to other drives or receives files downloaded from other drives.

A 'task' is a collection of sources with a target drive, through which a sync, backup or restore operation can be performed.

The app can perform:
* Full Sync: compares and synchronises files at two locations, deleted files in one location are deleted at the other, while new files at one location are uploaded to the other

* Backup Sync: upload changed files from sources to the destination drive

* Restore Sync: download changed files on a drive to target sources

* FILE MANAGER: list and browse files and folders on a drive, upload or download files to and from a drive, delete/rename files and folders on a drive.

File transfers are performed in tasks and you can create as many tasks for any drive, and with as many sources as you prefer.

When you create a task, you will
1. add a list of sources that point to the data you want to backup or restore. For files, this will be the folder containing the files.

2. add a destination drive and then select a destination folder on the drive where the data will be uploaded to or downloaded from.

Each source in a task can have a 'path'. A source path is a folder name, relative to the current task's drive destination folder ,
where a source's files are uploaded to during a backup or downloaded from during restore.


Web Server:
Serves local files and folders over WiFi.
Web server also supports selectable files and folders, folder listing, auto serve index.html, custom document root, partial content and auto start on launch.

I generally agree with the other reviews that you need to be able to try this without paying. I didn't get off the starting blocks with this app as it asked for payment to add a local drive on my phone, and that's just setting up the origin folder without even adding the destination. That's a pity as I won't be trying this out and it looked like it had the features i might be looking for.

Backup copies EVERYTHING, overwriting existing backup. Copying files is s-l-o-w. File dates and times are not preserved, all files are set to current date and time in both source and destination. Copying via default file explorer/manager is faster.

Looks like an interesting program but you have to pay $4 just to see if it does what you want. At this point, you have so much of it behind a paywall, I can't tell if it does what I need. My advice would be to have the program allow you to set up a local sync and tell you what it would do, but no actually do it without the payment.
