OneDrive vs Syncthing: What are the differences?
Developers describe OneDrive as "Save your files and photos to OneDrive and get them from any device, anywhere". Outlook.com is a free, personal email service from Microsoft. Keep your inbox clutter-free with powerful organizational tools, and collaborate easily with OneDrive and Office Online integration. On the other hand, Syncthing is detailed as "*Open Source Continuous File Synchronization *". It is a continuous file synchronization program. It synchronizes files between two or more computers and replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it's transmitted over the internet.
OneDrive and Syncthing belong to "File Storage" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by OneDrive are:
- Ransomware detection & recovery
- Expiring sharing links
On the other hand, Syncthing provides the following key features:
- Configure and monitor Syncthing via a responsive and powerful interface accessible via your browser
