Dual cloud sync possible?

Hello,

Following more users' concern on iCloud sync on windows I am discussing the following setup: a windows desktop, and all others Apple devices: MacBook, iPhone, iPad.

All Apple devices use iCloud sync. In order to add the windows desktop to this, a sync link should be added. Between the desktop and one of the Apple devices, possibly iPhone. This should be done via a sync method supported under windows, e.g. Dropbox. This means that the iPhone will have two sync links, via iCloud and via Dropbox.

Or, alternatively, the link between the windows desktop and the Apple group may simply be an occasional Wifi backup/restore.

Should such a scenario work? Is there a simpler way out?

Thank you.

My own reply.

The first scenario does not work. One device can only have one sync link.

The second scenario: the backup taken from the mobile is not identical in size with the backup taken from the desktop app after full round of syncs. How is this possible?

A third scenario: Enpass Desktop (install version) has an option to sync via folder. iCloud may sync a folder hierarchy to the cloud. Still, this does not work for Enpass, due to strange naming of the iCloud folders.

Enpass Desktop (portable version) does NOT have the folder sync option (the last version is 0.0.2 version numbers below the install version).

Hi Horia

 

Did you manage to find a solution to your needs?  Same thing over here I'm trying to keep in sync Ipad + IPhone + Mac OS with a windows desktop all running Enpass. All three apple devices sync on icloud but windows computer remains an issue.

 

Thanks, Josep.
