Does TeamDrive Free do file locking?

Postby ship69 » 10 Feb 2014, 13:45

Hi

Pre-sales question: Is TeamDrive suitable for collaboration projects? Specifically does it do file-locking? (whereby a user can see if a file is already being edited elsewhere)

Background
There are about 10 of us working on a project. It is a small project and we only need say 1GB of disk space if that. We have a near zero budget. We are all part time volunteers. We have tried the popular DropBox.com however it does not do file locking and the best we can do is to rename each file (e.g. to the format XXXX_being_edited_by_Fred...) but this painful...

We don't want to install new applications like this before doing due diligence either, partly because the Windows Registry is likely to get bloated and error prone.

- Any suggestions?

Bump!

Any news on this?

We have been struggling with the hateful DropBox and need an alternative that offers file locking so that we can avoid over-writing each others work.

Thanks

J

No file locking yet. Sorry.

Soft File locking is planned in a future update. This means that you will see on a file who is currently working on that file.

We plan to implement a soft-locking feature in the second quarter of this year.

My small team of family member is being driven away from the hateful DropBox due to repeated running out of diskspace plus repeated file edit conflicts.

*When* is file locking /soft locking planned for?
