As others have mentioned, changing files externally WILL NOT correctly sync any updates. It SHOULD check the last modified date of each file and use that to determine whether to pull fresh files from the cloud. I don't care if it's an option that takes x10 as long, it's syncing in the background anyway; fix it. Works otherwise but extremely disappointing a main claimed feature simply doesn't work due to lazy code.

I have using folder sync to keep some files in sync across my phone, tablet and PC by making a shared folder on the PC. Works great, with no issue.... I paid for the Premium feature in FolderSync, and I just noticed there is a FolderSync Pro also, would be good to know if pay for the premium is the same as getting foldersync pro directly.

Super fast (4 minute) backup of my S23 to SSD USB with 50 GB. But 4 stars since one scenario fails, when I try to sync 2 files with the same name and date, but different file sizes. This happens with 'Use remote file' on and 'Disable file-size check' on or off. Files are not synced.
