  1. I'm thinking of using it for: Backing up photos from my Ubuntu pc to my Windows pc Sync my documents over several pc's Sync my music from my pc to my android phone
  2. I think I might give it a shot... syncing my photos to 2nd pc that acts like a backup.
  3. So you say that the scenario I sketched can really happen? What is CRC? If I understand you correctly you agree with Zbig that I'd better off with a real backup solution. But that the vast majority of users like me can still use BTS for backing up a few folders and that the scenario I sketched won't hurt any files on other hard drives?
  4. Bump. I guess I need a hard drive expert for this question?
  5. Hello everybody I'm completely new here and have never done anything with BitTorrent Sync before. But I thought of using it for several things: Backup photos from my Ubuntu pc to my Windows pc Sync my documents over several pc's Sync my music from my pc to my android phone This is all possible right? (I know the android app isn't here yet) But I got a concern: What if one of my pc's hard drive crashes and the files get corrupt, will that effect and thus screw up the files on the other pc syncing with it? (or maybe even my phone?) I did hear and read stories about failing hard drives around me, some people lost all of their data... It would be even worse if that would also ruin the other devices.
