“As other customers have stated, I have bought multiple "perpetual" and "lifetime" licenses over the last 10 years, yet the company activation servers now block the use of the software and you can only buy yearly licenses (which cost the same amount).
So as a paying customer I am now forced to download pirated versions of the software.
Disgusting, greedy company that cheats on their contracts with customers. Do not trust them with your money or your data.”
“Quite agree with other comments - "It is very disappointing that an app I purchased with a lifelong license stops working all of a sudden and I'm asked to pay an annual subscription."
Some strange ethics at play here - GoodSync can go jump!”
“I've been using GoodSync for years and am very with its functionality. But it is very disappointing that an app I purchased with a lifelong license stops working all of a sudden and I'm asked to pay an annual subscription.”
“Needed a solution to back up my NAS to Google Drive and happy to have stumbled upon GoodSync. It has been able to continue syncing despite some interruptions and I am really happy how well it works directly between my NAS and Google Drive. Thanks GoodSync Team. You are one of the things I am grateful for today.”
I purchased the software with a lifetime license, and when they released a new version, they removed important functionality from the version I had purchased and now they say the functionality is only in the new version.
It wouldn't be a problem if it was a new implementation in the new version, but they removed it, just to start charging for the software.”
“Goodsync worked well syncing QNAP NAS to NAS across the internet - until it didn't. Tech support is by email only and not interested in solving the problem. I understand that 95% if support inquires can be answered with RTFM, but they need an escalation process if they want to retain their customers.
To add insult to injury, the change to annual subscription has made goodsync a $120/year commitment - way too expensive. A subscription model only works if the price matches the value provided. Goodsync should be. $15/year cost per license, not $40.”
“I truly hope unscrupulous companies like this pay a hefty price for their greed. Nowhere is it good policy, let alone honest, to sell a product to a customer, only to later attempt extortion for the same product. I paid good money for what was at the time a good product. Now I'm told I must pay every month to continue using it in its best format. For any new folks looking at Goodsync, I strongly suggest you search elsewhere!”
“It works perfectly. I have been looking for a long time for a software to synchronize myself my personnal datas. I lost a lot of time with free softwares and Cloud storage is expansive. GoodSync allows me to do synchronization or to back up in any direction I like. Many options allows me to do it exactly how I want it. It is the tool I use to manage my Westren Digital NAS. Great Product.”
“We use Goodsync for server os.
A 2way sync between our fileserver and Google drive for business.
It's not working, the analyze takes hours, and Goodsync support responds very slow. Goodsync support cannot provide the correct settings to make the sync job to Google work correct.
According to Google support, Goodsync is not using the Google API.
The is problem registered more than 1.5 month ago....
Keep this in mind before buying from Siber systems, Goodsync”
“This software used to be good, but slowly they were pushing towards a "software as a service" model including breaking local logins on their GoodSync server. Fortunately I had an older version so I could keep using them. Finally, with v11 they fully stopped selling their software and now only rent it. I guess I'll hold on to my v10 licenses as long as possible until I find something else.”
“DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. This is the absolutely the worst file back up or syncing software I've ever encountered. I have paid for two licenses and can't use either. They show up in my account but I can't activate them. When I try it tells me I don't have any available licenses. I contact support and they give me the most convoluted response possible and refuse to call me to help.”
“Not impressed with the new licencing strategy.
Suck you in with a perpetual licence for V10, then as of V11 smash you with an annual subscription based model
I see this as a greed strategy.
This is a pain for me as I am a personal user with 2 licences (1 windows, 1 Linux) and I cannot now upgrade to V11 or find the downloads for V10 for Linux.
I wouldn't recommend this software anymore due to the face it's gone to Annual Licencing.”
