Seafile (Windows Client)


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 6/4/2019.

Seafile is a next-generation open source cloud storage system with advanced support for file syncing, privacy protection and teamwork.

Collections of files are called libraries, and each library can be synced separately. A library can be encrypted with a user chosen password.
This password is not stored on the server, so even the server admin cannot view a file's contents.

Seafile allows users to create groups with file syncing, wiki, and discussion to enable easy collaboration around documents within a team.

To install Seafile (Windows Client), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install seafile-client

To upgrade Seafile (Windows Client), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade seafile-client

    modifying the License.
    You may add Your own copyright statement to Your modifications and may provide
    additional or different license terms and conditions for use, reproduction, or
    distribution of Your modifications, or for any such Derivative Works as a whole,
    provided Your use, reproduction, and distribution of the Work otherwise complies

    solely responsible for determining the appropriateness of using or
    redistributing the Work and assume any risks associated with Your exercise of
    permissions under this License.
    8. Limitation of Liability.
    In no event and under no legal theory, whether in tort (including negligence),

    liable to You for damages, including any direct, indirect, special, incidental,
    or consequential damages of any character arising as a result of this License or
    out of the use or inability to use the Work (including but not limited to
    damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or
    any and all other commercial damages or losses), even if such Contributor has
    been advised of the possibility of such damages.
    9. Accepting Warranty or Additional Liability.
    While redistributing the Work or Derivative Works thereof, You may choose to
    offer, and charge a fee for, acceptance of support, warranty, indemnity, or
    other liability obligations and/or rights consistent with this License. However,
    in accepting such obligations, You may act only on Your own behalf and on Your
    sole responsibility, not on behalf of any other Contributor, and only if You
    agree to indemnify, defend, and hold each Contributor harmless for any liability
    incurred by, or claims asserted against, such Contributor by reason of your
    accepting any such warranty or additional liability.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
