I was referred here via a response to my review of the Syncthing app for Android.
I'd like to see a feature such that a notification will be produced on the device being backed up (in my case, an Android phone) if a successful connection to the backup location (in my case, a home server) hasn't been established for XX hours/days.
For example... I have our phones set to back up the internal and external storage to my home server. We lost power at home, and when the server came back on, I forgot to restart the SyncThing service, so our phones were not being backed up for about a month. When my wife's SD card went bad, I found that our latest backups were a month old, so she lost a month of pictures of our kids.
If she had gotten a notification that it had been "too long" since a connection had been made from her phone to our server, I would have investigated it, and found that I simply needed to start SyncThing on the server.
Please consider this! Thanks!
