I have set smart-sync default to local. NOPE 'cause when I select an existing folder in selective sync it starts out AS AN ONLINE-ONLY folder. Hey the client even tells me it will do this, thanks! not. WHY. GOD. WHY?! I want this folder synced fully or I would not have selected it!!
Now I have to also manually set folders to local in the finder. Which, because the client is probably struggling with the file load, it doesn't set them all properly, or late, or just removes the checkmark completely.. I have no proper realtime feedback and no assurance. So next morning what has been downloaded and what has not will be a great surprise, a feature that the users here will surely appreciate.
Has this been tested with people whom actually make money? With multi terabytes of data in lots of (large) files? While the client is syncing heavily? WHY this stupid selective sync default?
Please let me turn this annoying unsmart-sync feature OFF, it's also bound to confuse users. We have plenty of local HDD space.. It is a great feature to push users to another storage solution though..
At LEAST PLEASE set a selected selective-sync folder default to " local" instead of online-only, or give us a choice. This has not been thought through.
