FileSync FAQs


What is FileSync Seafile?

FileSync is the name we give our hosted Seafile service. This service gives you an insight into how Seafile works and is hosted on Microsoft Azure in the UK.

Seafile is the software we use and which will allow you to back up and share all of your company’s files and photos etc with friends and colleagues.

What about GDPR ?

One of the most common discussions we hear about data clouds is ‘will my data be secure?

With your own server and Seafile, your data will be secure and satisfy UK Laws and GDPR.

How is Seafile different?

Seafile is built for teams and doesn’t restrict you to single user accounts.

More than 400,000 users trust Seafile worldwide and they have a lot of Universities on their customer list.

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 Seafile can replace your Windows server without any downtime or headaches. Seafile has its own secure database for all of your user accounts which is administered through a simple GUI.

How many team members can I sync with?

You can create as many accounts as you like and sync as many devices as you want to. The only restiction is the capacity of your server’s storage and processing power.


Is my data encrypted?

All data will be encrypted on your device before being transmitted using AES 256 bit. Your data is transmitted using SSL encryption and is stored encrypted whilst at rest.

You can also add a personal password to your libraries.


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 your server and your other synced devices.

Can Seafile replace my normal backup?

For file based systems, the answer is YES. You can distribute your data to as many devices as you like. This ensures you will have more than one copy of your up-to-date critical data.


How do I get support?

After we have built your server, you can choose a support package which suits you. We don’t sell many support packages because Seafile is so reliable.

If you require support and don’t have a contract, the quickest way is via our community forum

If you need us to fix an issue, we can do so on a hourly ticket basis.
