Icedrive takes hours, up to 15+ hours, to “compare folders”. Totally unnaceptable. Defeats all purpose of “syncing”.
Yes, I have many files. But if Icedrive cant handle it, then dont offer TB size storage. And of course, I am not making changes to all files every minute. Even if there are no changes , but still can take hours to sync. Time does not seem to be linearly proportional to the number of files, but exponential. If i make sync pairs of each subfolder it does work fast with small subfolders, but with subfolders with many files still struggles in the same way. I should not have to do this, its absurd to make me create a pair sync for every subsubfolder just to get it synced.
Since Icedrive is so unreliable, I use two other clouds from other companies. I have the same folders in sync, no problem whatsoever. They scan and compare folders fast. I am not counting download/upload times, which are ok in Icedrive.
Icedrive needs many improvements. And little has been done in the last months. But this is ridiculous. Icedrives needs the whole night to sync while consuming a lot of CPU resources. Listening to fan noise all day is annoying. Icedrive needs urgently discrete syncing or block syncing, and add a manual complete scan button.
For now, I am going to stop using the program. And maybe use it for a backup every month. Because is clearly nonsense to keep it running at the back struggling to compare two folders when at the end of my working session it has synced nothing yet. I will save some electricity and noise for me.
PS: Another suggestion, make deletion policy customizable for every sync pair. I want some folders to be backedup (no deleting) and other to be synced (w/ deleting).
Also show the list of files that have been already synced/completed or queued… Many times syncing doesnt even work…
