I appreciate that odrive has to make money somehow, and the Finder integration for this is a killer feature, but selective sync is a standard feature of every cloud storage system I use. Having automatic unsync, and potentially even individual file unsync, be a paid feature absolutely makes sense, I have no argument there, but making the entire unsync functionality part of a $99 annual subscription is ridiculous and is what is preventing me from giving you any money at all. Clearly odrive felt this way as well, considering the brief existence of the Unsyc tier when the feature first moved from free to paid.
I don’t need any of the advanced functionality of the Premium version except the very basic ability to stop syncing certain folders. It would even be fine if odrive merely recognized the settings within individual providers. As far as I can tell, though, the only way I’d be able to get rid of a folder once I’d downloaded it (even by accident) would be to completely remove every trace of odrive and reinstall, and I’m not sure that would even work.
Frankly, the free tier should have at least feature parity with the 1st-party sync clients of the services it supports, or it should be a one-time software purchase for at least that level. As is, odrive is actually less functional than even the garbage Box Sync client while costing more than a significant amount of actual storage with most of these providers.
I’m hoping I’m wrong and I’ve just misread something here. Otherwise this effectively renders odrive supremely uncompetitive, considering the prices of competing products. I’d happily pay $50 or a couple bucks a month for the basic feature set, but I can’t justify $99 paid annually for the limited feature set I’d actually use.
