More options for pausing sync

More options for pausing sync

It would be nice to be able to pause sync until the end of the day. Say 5 or 6 pm.

8am the next morning isn’t terribly helpful.

It would be great to schedule the pause, like from 9-5 daily.

As I often have large files, or folders with large amount of data in it (e.g. video files), it would be great to be able to set a time to resume syncing overnight when I don't need the bandwidth for working during the day. 

The current options are pause syncing for 30mins, 1 hour, Until tomorrow and Indefinitely. 

It would be great to either specify what 'Until Tomorrow' means, or change this to 12am. 

A custom option would also be great to start at the end of a working day if needed. 

Need more support?
