That looks rather more useful than the one I suggested upthread.nontroppo wrote:There is a very nice iCloud Drive utility that has recently been released by the wonderful eclecticlight:

It allows you to check status and functioning of iCloud drive files.
Exactly my experience. I've used DropBox for a long time and never had any problems with it. I'm fortunate that in DropBox early days I was able to build up a reasonable storage quota via recommendations and since I only use it for live projects am able to manage without a subscription.nontroppo wrote:My experience running both Dropbox and iCloud (not on the same file obviously) is is that iCloud is far less reliable. [...SNIP....] I will grudgingly keep renewing my Dropbox annual subscription until I find a replacement that is anywhere nearly as reliable and ubiquitously supported as Dropbox is.

There's trust and trust. If the OP doesn't trust Dropbox because it's unreliable and fails to work, that's one thing that perhaps/maybe KB could do something about by tweaking the way Scriv interacts with the Dropbox APIs.lunk wrote:I can't help being intrigued by the title of the thread...
"Why I don't trust Dropbox and what the Scrivener developer can do about it."
Interesting question, but slightly impossible. I mean, what can Keith do to increase the posters trust in Dropbox?

I have these regular issues where a 40 MB file doesn't seem to appear for a long time, yet a 1 GB file might appear in under 5 minutes. Off-sight transfer is complex, I know, but DropBox seems to not have these issues.

Dropbox has 31+ different connections out going from my Mac at any one time. I'm not going to list them here, unless anyone asks for them, but I think that is just crazy!! Why does dropbox need to send my files to Thailand? Really?
What I would love form Scrivener: To start an new project or even just work on a current one on my iPhone or iPad when I'm away from my Mac, and be able to pick up where I left off when I get home, all with iCloud sync.
As for what I think the developer of Scrivener can do about it? Start a donation page or maybe even a Kickstarter project and start collecting money to hire a another developer/s to help add iCloud sync if you do not want to do it yourself. I know it can be done, it may take lots of work, but with the new iCloud file system, it can be done. With the amount of people I've seen on this form and others complaining about not having iCloud sync, I'm pretty sure you could raise enough money help solve this problem.
Please stop telling us to use dropbox and look to your community to help solve this problem. Maybe some of use with programming experience could even chip in on the project?

I have huge video files that I am trying to live in the cloud forever and only bring them on to the computer when absolutely necc. These files are 45-70 gbs. So it was draining my entire ISP load and then when it synced, it was not clear where my Dropbox files were in the process of syncing . Like i needed it on to make sure my project was synced up to dropbox, but leaving it on was burning data because of video.again, this is a dropbox ish.
