state of file syncing software in 2020

tl;dr:

  • Google Drive: Added a file on my phone two days ago, still not available on my Mac. Had to restart the app.
  • Microsoft OneDrive: It seems to sync but clicking the menu bar item brings up a beach ball all the time, not really reassuring.
  • iCloud Drive: Added 3 screen shots to a folder, one showed up on my iPhone. It’s been a few weeks, still missing two screen shots. Well.

13 years after Dropbox launched, Dropbox is still the only file syncing software which just works.

I excluded all self hosted syncing tools on purpose, I don’t want to do any maintenance work on servers. I just want my files to sync.
