Sync Folders menu missing
Since version 6, the menu for "Sync Folders" is missing. I think it was replaced with the Compare Contents. The issue we are having with the "auto" syncing is it's not properly modifying the permissions on the objects on S3 bucket. We didn't have this issue when we were manually syncing the folders using the Sync Folders menu. How can we bring back the Sync Folders or manually sync or modify the "Compare Contents" sync function? We need our files to be public read and it's removing it on each auto-sync.
I had to revert to an earlier version. The Syncs Folders feature was one of the most useful ones in the product.
Will it be reintroduced?

There is no Guide or Tutorial that would explain the meaning of buttons for each window of the GUI application. Some PDF files from HELP pages of CloudBerry are just aborted after the very first window without any attempt to explain essential modes. It is very frustrating. Browsing gigabytes of Internet and loosing a lot of time I located the version
on the SOFTONIC site.
Unfortunately, Compare and Sync folders in Explorer are legacy functions and provided "as is", with no support. That change was made a few years ago. If I find a way to resolve your issue, I'll post it here.
Really disappointing, I bought a license thinking it was a non trial function, Why leave the broken UI in, leading people to think there is something extra you have to do, to start the actual sync process?
Ive been using Cloudberry Free version for years to synch and uploaded to Amazon S3 buckets, however that feature was deleted so I upgraded to Cloudberry Pro to achieve the same result using the “Compare Folders” option.
I have successfully run a Compare Folders and want to upload missing files to the S3 buckets from my local folder. I have all of these files listed in various local folders and subfolders so the compare ran properly and those items are sorted and listed in green.
However I cannot figure out how to copy all of these Compared files from the Compare Folders tab. I can copy files one at a time or in groups from the general Local/Destination tab, but nothing is compared and sorted there so it serves little purpose.
I don’t see a button anywhere in the Compare Folders tab to then copy/synch these specifically sorted and compared files from my local folders to their similar destination S3 bucket folders.
Either Im blind or stupid but it’s not obvious to me and Ive tried to figure it out for an hour. Something has obviously change in how to do this from the older free version I was using.
If synching is no longer a function of this software, I will have to get a refund for my purchase and find an alternate replacement.

If I just want to sync two folders every 2 hours, then what mode should I choose?
S3 simple backup / sync - why multiple folders on S3 for each folder on PC?
(freeware version) - trying to sync folders but nothing seems to be happening...
Restore of backup also includes empty Deleted Folders – is there an option to exclude empty folders
