What exactly makes you say that Resilio is not secure? Maybe the fact that's free but not open source?

I don't wanna use syncthing, because I don't like it's name, because it's not available on my mobile phone, because it's slow the times I've tried and more importantly, because I am definitely not interested in using it.

Having said that, every installation I did on the raspberry pi has resulted in a mess of permission/users problems. Since I'm not that skilled, especially with the command line, I'd like the choice of having it integrated in the DietPi available software list.

DietPi has the opportunity to standardize it's installation and to solve frustration.

Thank you for your reply.

Woah... Take it easy, man!
You are entitled to install anything you want on your boards, no one will try to stop you. :)
But still, Resilio Sync is a proprietary software and for this reason you have to trust it blindly, since no one will ever be allowed to check whether what they promise about the privacy of your data is actually true. You are going to entrust a third party with all of your files without any control over how they are going to be treated.
This is the definition of INSECURE.
If you are OK with this, just use it, no problem. But please allow me to say that choosing a software for its name and/or the interest you have in learning how to use it does not sound as a good reason to me.
Syncthing does not need you to have any skills in using the command line as it's all GUI based, therefore I am not really sure we are talking about the same software here :P
Also, considering what you wrote earlier in the thread, it does look that Resilio is not working "out of the box" either, as you had to change ownership and other settings, which is exactly what could happen in syncthing or any other linux software on earth, for that matter. Still, syncthing is already integrated and installable in DietPi, and this would avoid any of this work to be done. That's why I was suggesting it: it does the same things as Resilio Sync, it's open source and more secure, and it's already available in DietPi... This sounded like a great solution to your "problem", to me. I see it is not, ok. I don't agree, but we don't have to all have the same opinions.
Anyway, Fourdee is the King here, and he's the only one who can decide whether to add a new software to the installation list, so just wait for his decisions.
