If you frequently use multiple file sharing services such as Dropbox, Google Drive and One Drive, you might be interested in CloudSync, a nifty little app that’s capable of synchronizing data across these platforms and others. It can also synchronize files between local disks.
To get started, it’s necessary to sign up for a free CloudSync account (requires confirmation via email). Logging in with a Facebook, Twitter or Google account is possible too.
Sync files between Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive and others
The application comes bundled in a clean and intuitive interface, where buttons on the top side make it possible to add and remove sync jobs, start all of them right away, and configure various preferences.
Setting up a sync job implies creating a new profile with a display name, sync source, and destination. The same options are available for the source and output: Hubic, Amazon Drive, Google Drive, FTP/FTPS, Box, local disk, Dropbox, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, SFTP, and WebDAV. Authorization is required via the web browser.
Supports many popular file sharing services as well as local disks
Before applying the settings, you can tinker with the scheduler. Besides the auto-sync option where CloudSync detects changes and runs the sync right away, you can opt for a scheduled mode (every few minutes or every hour on the hour) or manual (only when you trigger this action from the main app window).
Moreover, you can limit the number of files to upload at once (affects speed) as well as apply filters if you want to exclude any files by name. Sync history is recorded so you can always review past actions. If you log in with the same account on another device, the profile settings remain visible but inaccessible in remote mode.
We’ve noticed a couple of inconveniences during in our tests. For instance, the tool wouldn’t stop syncing after a failed attempt to read the source files. However, there’s plenty of room for improvements.
