It has been about 2 years since the launch of Tonido and TonidoPlug and it has been a period of solid growth and progress in many fronts. One of the key things we have been doing is listening to your feedback and using that to drive our product development strategy.
CodeLathe as a company strongly believes in empowering customers as well in solutions where the user has ultimately the control on their data. Today, we are more than excited to announce one such feature as part of the already strong Tonido Platform. Tonido already offers smooth and simple remote access to your files and media, today we take it one step further allowing Tonido to be your sync solution that keeps your files completely private.
CodeLathe is happy to announce Tonido Sync, one of the first products of its kind, offering file synchronization without using the Public Cloud. Now sync is truly personal.
So exactly how does it work?
Install Tonido on your computer. Install the Sync Application by clicking on “Get More Apps” on the left hand side navigation. After install, activate the Sync app.
After activation, a new TonidoSync folder is created on your computer or TonidoPlug.
To see the location of your synced folder, open Tonido and in the left hand navigation, you should now see the “My Synced Files” show up.
Go to other computers that you want to synchronize and install the small TonidoSync Client app for your OS, available from the Tonido.com Downloads Page. (available for Windows, Linux or Mac).
After install, start the app and enter the Tonido server credentials, same as what you would do for mobile apps.
A new TonidoSync folder is created on your computer.
There is no step 3!
Sit back and Relax. All content in the TonidoSync folder is now synchronized among all your computers. Just drag and drop your files to the synchronization folder and it is synchronized with all your computers.
You can check the synchronization activity using the TonidoSync Client app.
This is available in Tonido release 2.30 available today on all platforms Windows, Linux, Mac and TonidoPlug.
During the beta, there is a limit of 250 MB for sync that is allowed and the maximum file size you can synchronize will be limited to 20 MB. Also, since it is in Beta, we request that you keep backup copies of your data when using it.
As usual, please keep the support, feedback and comments coming.
