synchronization in 1 channel

files are missing, everything is written in the review

Regarding the technical support of the cloud.mile.ru service, I constantly have some questions, a decent correspondence has already accumulated. With other services (dropbox and google drive), I did not have any questions at all.

With Cloud.Mail.ru you really feel unprotected, or rather, you feel that your data is not protected and something will be lost. in case of unsuccessful synchronization.

I have about 400 GB occupied from 1000 GB in the cloud. I understand, of course, this 1 TB was received during the mail.ru campaign before the new year and theoretically mail.ru support can send all freeloaders to nafig. But I’m basically ready to pay for the service if it was reliable.

Option # 1 for missing files

The bottom line is that the synchronization itself occurs, according to my assumptions, in one channel , i.e. the program can synchronize a bunch of small files for a very long time. In the meantime, it is synchronizing, having done things, you turn off the computer without suspecting anything and in the morning, already at work, turn on another computer, which is also connected to the cloud. You may find that some of these small files have disappeared because they were not on the home computer, well, they just did not load and the program thinks that everything should be synchronized as it was on the home computer.

В As a result, files disappear here and there - pzdts how much fun it becomes. Okay, if we are talking about temporary files, but what if these are pictures with relatives, which are no longer on the phone or on the camera?

Option # 2 for missing files

Next. When you rename files on one computer, it is written in the cloud that the file *** is deleted.

That is, the program stupidly deletes files from the cloud in order to then upload them under a new name. 

And again, at the time when you renamed the files, the program deleted them in the cloud - you turn off the computer. 

As a result, the files are deleted in the cloud, deleted on the working computer.

you come home and there are no files there, because the program considered the cloud a priority and deleted the files in the sync pack.

In short, it is very cautious to use this service, even if it costs money.

I repeat once again - this has never happened in dropbox and googledrive. But, alas, the cost for 1 TB per year of their services is still unaffordable.

There are several folders on the laptop with quite important working information, which is constantly updated and modified. I downloaded the application, installed it, and that’s it. Now it hangs in the tray and mirrors all the necessary folders in the cloud, besides it does not remind of itself in any way, while in the folder itself you can see which files are synchronized and which are not. Convenient and unobtrusive.

Large and free cloud

mobile app

Not in time for 1 TB, but in time for 100GB. However, this is quite enough for placing materials there that have nowhere to put or they clog up the phone. 

In general, everything is convenient and works well. 

There is a flaw in the mobile application, but this may not be due to the application itself, but due to some communication problems. Sometimes it breaks off in the download mobile application or everything hangs for a very long time, tk. a lot of files. 

How to upload and download from the service "Oblako Mail.ru"

Liked

look and feel

Disliked

one drawback, it is also the most basic - very low download and upload speed, which is a big problem for large files. Patience is simply not enough! And if you are lucky and the process is not interrupted, you will download. NO renewal! Well, it looks like a simple and unsuitable service!

Today there are no convenient solutions for uploading and downloading large files to Cloud Mail ru, except for one - Maxthon Nitro

You can easily share information with another person. And you don’t need to share different folders 100 times. + All information is physically merged onto your computer, and does not hang somewhere on someone else’s server.

Disliked

They don’t seem to exist. Unless you can collect data about another person and send it to the FSB. 

Also does not know how to determine the cycle of the Moon to determine biorhythms.

I ask the developers to pay attention to the fact that the application does not have an analogue on Simbian and my Nokia 3310 cannot save a picture with HD resolution and transmit it via IR port to my friend from a neighboring village.

Perhaps this is just a bug in the code, so if I can still download this application using an authorized service in the nearest regional center (Miha, you are the best !! Thanks for the snake) please let me know by international pigeon mail.

Dropbox is the best cloud

Liked

Security - provided with 256-bit AES encryption during storage and SSL / TLS during transmission.

Free space up to 23 GB available

Mobile client with a convenient and user-friendly interface

Fast synchronization, and if you have 2 computers on the same home network, then it transfers files even faster - directly through the network.

Disliked

Not found in a year and a half

I have been using this service for more than a year and a half - I have never let it down.

At first, only 2 GB of space is given out, but having done easy tasks (subscribe to Twitter and Facebook, and download the program on a PC) - the place increases to 4.25 GB, after that for each invited friend, the space increases by 500 MB. 

You can also increase the space if you register using the referral link (you are given 500 MB and me 500 MB - https://db.tt/Zfdkmo84). I hope we can help each other with free 500 MB)

It takes a long time to load heavy files

At work, the hard drive somehow flew. But I’m smart! All working materials, documents, invoices, etc. I copy mail to the virtual disk, so he saved me that day ... Before that I used Yandex, but when I found out that mail had created a virtual disk of 100 GB, I immediately objected to it (here Yandex with its 10 GB is not a competitor).

I have not found a more practical one yet

Comparing services for a long time, settled on dropbox - a very pleasant interface, excellent speed, availability for quick sharing :)
