Option "Übertragene Objekte prüfen" in iCloud sync dialog box

I am using iCloud sync. Within the dialog box where you define the password for encryption there are further options.
One option is “Übertragene Objekte prüfen” – probably in english version “verify transfered objects”.

I never dared to switch it on, since iCloud sync on my iOS device is very very slow.


  1. Is it useful to activate?
    Higher reliability ?

  2. What ist the trade off?
    Longer sync time?


It doesn’t hurt to enable it. There’s no guarantee about reliability but it can do some extra bookkeeping to try and ensure the sync is successful. It adds some overhead in the initial sync but shouldn’t have an appreciable effect on subsequent synces.

Thanks, I will give it a try.
