[Feature Request] Time Range or Idle Computer Driven Backups

Question

Just wanted to pitch something that would be of extreme use to me.

 

I currently have an awful internet connection (live in the woods with only option being DSL).  This won't be permanent for me but currently is something I have to deal with.  Because my connection is 12Mb down / 1Mb up it is incredibly hard for me to backup anything in a timely manner.  I would love to have the options to have it operate from either a certain time period (ex 1am-6am) or to possibly have it only backup when computer is idle.  Folding@Home has the great option that it only takes over my graphics card when my computer is idle, I would love for CloudDrive to do the same thing.

 

While I don't know the intricacies of that, the simpler solution is to give us the ability to only let it upload from certain times.  With that being said I would love for there to be a more intuitive option to cease uploading than unchecking the upload threads but for the time being this is fine.

Sounds great! Thanks! Love the product so far, can't wait to have better internet.  I don't see QoS as an acceptable solution, unless my understanding of how local VPNs work is incorrect (which is not only possible, but likely), all my information flowing in/out will look pretty close to the same.

Ah well yeah, if you are using a VPN for everything then yeah, your router will see everything as just being VPN traffic.  In that case you might want to look for a client-side software solution like netlimiter.  I'd probably prefer this to using whatever stablebit comes up with because then it works with all my applications, not just stablebit's.
