Hi there,

as heard before, Path Finder 8 is in progress and focus is on it.

But.

Dropbox has finally built the feature they were always expected to have. The way how smart sync works is the way how a cloud file solutions has to work. Now that is a big news and will keep growing. And this fact should be smartly weight against tasks and even re-prioritised if found to be as important as for example I personally do understand it is.

Perhaps a voluntarily installable patch titled "a pre-release beta for Path Finder - Dropbox Smart Sync feature". You could have voluntary users (who do need this urgently) beta test it for you so that release 8 could already include functional release of it. This way you can see the Smart Sync as a part of version 8 core features.

Perhaps you should ask your users. Have them vote between Smart Sync and some other relevant options priorities?

Best Regards,
Tomas

    I would also consider support of Dropbox smart sync critical in Path Finder 8 or an update. I have a large number of files in the could only and PF wants to always download them.
