Crypt Sync Files App Reviews

Not Happy - Not at all

I purchased this tool hoping for an easy/secure/encrypted backup solution which would be easy to setup and easy to recover my data if necessary. During tests, the filter methods are completely different than any other product on the market and none of them are documented. The developer did return one of my emails to answer this question, but the methods they gave me were documented NO WHERE (not even on their web page), and, when I asked if these details were documented somewhere, they did not return my email. Also, after sync’ing a set of files and encrypting them during the sync, how do you decrypt them? It seems there is no method to do this - you can sync and encrypt, but, if you need to get the data back, there is no method to decrypt. Pretty bad Greenworld….

Not easy to use, convoluted U/I, good luck

I’ve used the a free file syncing app (Folder Sync) by this developer with good results. But I wanted an option to sync folders one way with out re-adding files from the secondary folder to my primary folder. It seemed like this CryptSync app would add a feature to do that and also encrypt the data on the secondary folder so I purchased it to give it a try. After trying countless times to make this software work as advertised in a similar way to the Folder Sync app it had not done that. I was able to replicate encryption syncing to another folder (with out consistency) but reversing that process has not been achieved. After sending the developer a message he did promptly return my message with a canned response (to be fair he probable gets many questions daily on how to use this software because in many ways it’s U/I is like no other modern Mac app I have ever used) on how to do this which didn’t work. One way I have been able to unencrypt the .scrt files generated by this app is to run one of those files individually through another app “The Unarchiver”. Since it does not produce one encrypted file but encrypts ever single file in your encrypted folder you can imagine how fun this would be if you had to use it to retrieve your data with this method. There maybe an element of user error on my part but this stuff should “just work”, especially when you are trying to keep your data safe, and it doesn’t. **Update! After hours of trial and error was able to “reverse encrypt” a folder but after trying to open those files they were corrupted an unusable, GREAT! TLDR = App doesn’t not just produce a single encrypted file with a few clicks of the mouse that can be easily reversed, be prepared to spend an hour plus trying to figure out how to achieve your goal. Not confidence inspiring as a solution for safely encrypting and retrieving data back-ups.

Almost perfect ….

This software is doing exactly what is expect, sync and encrypt your files before sending them to your cloud repository. I have only one problem with the choice of the encryption. You can choose between AES256, but this is a proprietary format which is only readable through the software ! .. Not really useful when you went to get your files back on a windows machine for example. The other format, zip with encrypt seems more Universal, since it can be open on a windows machine but this format is known to be weak since it relies on Unix zip utility. Hope the development team will soon adopt a 7zip AES256 encryption soon ! which could make this the perfect soft.

File/Folder sync and encryption is what we need with cloud services

Great application that works as advertised. Developer responds promptly to inquiries even on a Sunday. This is my setup: I sync an unencrypted folder on my MacPro to the cloud AES256 encrypted with a password. I sync the encrypted cloud folder to a folder on my Macbook Air using the same application where it unencrypt using the password. Whatever file or folder I add to to Macbook Air folder get synced to the cloud. Upon restarting my MacPro those new files get decrypted on my computer. During transmission the files are encrypted. It works also with Dropbox. For the first time I trust my files in the cloud. I am a user of the Goodsync application as well so I trust the syncing protocol from this application. There is flexibility to choose backup, sync in various directions. I have done a lot of testing and so far so good. Kudos to the developer.

This is a great application

I really like this application. I use it for encrypting files on the cloud that I can access form anywhere. It is easy to use and has worked remarkably well.

App does what it says and support is great

If you are looking for a quick way to sync files with encryption, this is the app for you. It’s fairly easy to setup with a good amount of options available. The folder sync modes might seem confusing, but should work for nearly every scenerio you can think of. I do wish the app outlined the sync modes a little more. I did email the developer and response was very quick and freindly. I would definately recommend this app.

1.3 Update Fail Now Corrected

ORIGINAL: 1 star Failed to verify the preflight file. It is not signed by Apple. Get Apple to solve this and it will become 5 stars. ***************************************************** UPDATE: Problem fixed in 1 day - GREAT response - 5 stars!
