Synology Drive desktop apps (windows + mac), missing backup schedule

Unread post by mioan » Mon Aug 13, 2018 6:58 am

I use synology drive apps on two computers to backup (upload only) my work files to the synology server.
I do this just to keep the version history of the files and to have a backup of them.

Unlike the cloud backup app, the new drive app does not have a schedule setting, to backup (one way sync) lets say once per day.
By doing continuous instant backups it fills up the version history with files that I am currently working and saving so it uploads not-final files. (some files are programming source code, so it uploads buggy, not finished code).

Please add a sync schedule.
