True that. Applies to any cloud service.

I am getting "PUMS: ERROR: Wrong data for activation: unknown OrderID/Name. " any hints?

EDIT: Never mind, I was trying to add the license key with the Order Id & Name rather the (Bach Code) mode :)

Thanks OP.
Been using GoodSync for a while now but only the free version.

Can you move the licence between computers?

How do you get 50GB storage for free with Mega? I see that they currently only offer 15GB storage for free...

The home page says 50 but there's an asterisk? I can't see what the conditions are. They may have changed but when I signed up it was 50gb and it was that for a long time.

Not sure if this is the only difference or if Google Drive / One Drive allow this, but I use GoodSync to backup to a home server, not a cloud based one.

As another user mentioned, it's worked fine and is straight-forward enough. I think I spent $20 or $30 on it back in the day and I don't have any particular regrets.

Thanks OP!

Believe it or not I spent 6 hours last night testing and trialing out backup solutions for my PC's because I got a new NAS drive an my old solution did not work with NAS.
I never heard about GoodSync till I saw this post but now it's what I'm using! It does exactly what I need (NAS Backup, Encryption, Scheduling, data explorer, incremental backups)

You don't need to install the software to get an account.

After you get the license key, just go to goodync.com, register and go to licenses to add the license.

If I decide to use this later, I'll install the software.
Wallet safe :rolleyes:

FYI this article describes the 50 GB free:

Been looking for something like this since I recently lost about 15 years of memories from a faulty External Portable Hardrive (It was really old, I should have replaced it rather than pushing it). I wanted to get clarification on exactly how this software works. Do I install it first on my Main Laptop and let that be its main back up? I have a work laptop and work desktop that I do everything in. I have been using Dropbox for work related files to sync around my computers etc, but have been using 2 SD cards to back up all my personal and import and pictures and files, one as back up and another as back up of a back up LOL!

Is this like Dropbox but better? How secure is this? Im guessing when you send things over the cloud it now has a copy of whatever you decide to put in it. Im very new to these things but would like to expand my knowledge so i dont lose all my important memories again. I have considered using Google Drive but dont entirely trust the cloud system YET since everything is prone to being hacked no matter how secure we think it is. Thanks in advanced guys!

Can you add more than 1 license to the same account?

(is each key cross referenced to the specific e-mail you used to get it?)
