    100% this is a feature that I miss from Box Sync. Manual control over syncing allowed me to work on a version of a file within a shared folder without "pushing" that interim draft to any other users sharing that same folder. That risks conflicted copies, but the same is true for working without an internet connection. I'd like to be able to pause syncing, without completely turning off my internet connection.

    I just uninstalled Box Drive on my new computer, and put Box Sync back. I often work over a cellular hotspot, and Drive will not let me stop syncing.  If I turn it off, I lose all my files - how stupid is that?

    I also had some random lockups for a second or two ever since I installed Box Drive - they seem to have gone way, although I am not 100% sure of that yet.

    Pausing is an essential feature. I will not switch from Box Sync until it is added to Box Drive.
