FileSync FAQs

ALL ABOUT FILESYNC

What is FileSync?

If you are familiar with any of the hundreds of file sharing services on the market, you’ll already have a pretty good understanding of what File Sync is and can do. FileSync is a service which will allow you to back up and share all of your company’s files and photos etc with friends and colleagues.

Why did we launch another file sharing cloud?

One of the most common discussions we hear about data clouds is that none of the established companies have a UK presence, so we thought we should build one. With the big players your only method to backup or restore large amounts of data is over the Internet. More importantly you don’t know what is happening to your data because these companies aren’t always governed by UK Laws or GDPR.

How is FileSync different?

All of our services are built and priced for teams and not standalone single users. We own all of our hardware and use UK based ISO accredited data centres.

How can FileSync replace my Windows file server?

If you are using the traditional method of a Windows file server, desktops and laptops, you’ll will also be paying a premium for the Windows server license (approx. £450).

Each desktop and laptop connection to that server will cost approx. £50 for the license. This doesn’t include support and backup costs as well as new software and hardware every 3-5 years along with an install charge. If your Windows server is only serving files, then FileSync can replace your Windows server without any downtime or headaches. FileSync has its own secure database for all of your user accounts which is administered through a simple GUI.

GENERAL

Which software do you use?

We use Seafile for all of our File Sync and Share services.

How do I connect my client device to the service?

The Windows client will automatically direct your client software to the correct server. For other OS’, iPhone, iPad and Android, you will need to manually enter your server’s URL. This will have been sent to you in your sign-up email and will be similar to https://s1.bobcloud.net/backup

How many team members can I sync with?

The FREE plan allows you to sync a maximum of 2 devices. The maximum amount of devices you can sync on the other plans are shown above.

What happens if I need to sync more devices than my plan allows?

You can upgrade at any time or contact us if you have a specific requirement.

SECURITY

Where is my backed-up data stored?

All backed-up data is stored in the UK.
We use N+1 private facilities within our data centre in Reading. All data will be synced automatically to your other devices within your plan.

Which levels of encryption is used on my data?

All data can be encrypted on your device before being transmitted to us using AES 256 bit. Your data is transmitted using SSL encryption and is stored encrypted whilst on our platform.

BACKING UP AND SYNCING

How do we Sync our data?

After you install the client on your server or desktop a folder will be created. Drop your files into there and they will sync automatically to our service and your other synced devices.

How long can we retain data for?

Every account will retain modified data for up-to 14 days as default. Longer retention periods can be added.

Can FileSync replace my normal backup?

For file based systems, the answer is YES. With your data distributed wherever your PCs and servers are, you will have more than one copy of your up-to-date critical data.
