Kia ora koutou,

I need a sync app for my Mac, for my C1 catalogs (to P-cloud). I can't use the P-cloud app because it only does folders, and won't do individual catalog files. I'd also prefer something without a subscription cost.

So it needs to take a photo catalog, and sync it with my P-cloud drive without dramas and efficiently.

Any recommendations?

Interesting, free is always good.

Does rysnc synch the files or just copy them to the new location?

Check all its options in a terminal, it's quite powerful file transfer and synchronization command tool, not just a simple file copy.

A quick tutorial: https://www.chriswrites.com/how-to-sync-files-and-folders-on-the-mac/
There are many more to be found, in case you like videos:

Ah, problem solved. It turns out that the P-cloud synch function works for any type of file or folder. I can synch catalogs with just P-cloud.
