A few problems NOT BEING ADDRESSED!
SLOWING DOWN MY MAC!
I do not think the community can solve these, this is an Insync issue, that needs the highest of developer resource to solve, in fact maybe the CEO needs to get in on this one.
So I put it here to advise everyone, because this issue has not been getting any attention from support and developers.
- Every-time the App is started it rescans every single file and folder for changes. This may seem harmless but it is a machine killer.
- If you pause the app and then restart it, it restarts from the beginning again and rescans everything. Then that is not “Pause” that is a “Stop, and restart”
- The longer the App is open the more and more memory it uses up, until it get so high my Mac slows. For me the other day it reached 15GB even though my Mac had not be restarted for about 3 days.
everytime you touch your finder its memory usage goes up. This is quite dodgy.
Lets think about 15GB, that is 15 Billion Bytes of information, WHY?
No, there is no reason why, this problem comes down to poor development.
Once Insync has done a scan there is no valid reason for memory to grow unless new files are being added to the file system.
Insync, explain why you need to use 15GB of my Ram.
do not ask for my logs surely this is happening to everyone, please prove that it is not.
I currently have an M1 Mac and so you maybe yet to move over to the proper Apple File Streaming API like Apple has advise years ago.
or maybe this app always had memory leakage, well yes it did, because this was just the same on my intel based Mac.
Insync you must sort this out as a priority, you cannot expect to get funding from people when you have such critically faulty architecture, and App design.
Lets gets some dialogue going on this, to see how many people it affects.
