  2. The only thing I'm looking for is the ability to limit the capacity of a folder. Being able to set a hard limit on the size of a synced folder would allow me to easily share a folder with random people on the internet and have confidence that they aren't going to DDOS me by spamming the folder until my harddrive has filled up.

The ubuntu box reports running version 1.1.70 ( up to date ). The windows laptops report running version 1.1.74 I've tried to share my music folder between the laptop and ubuntubox that have a direct connection, but nothing happens. The ubuntu box reports /Backup/My Music 0 B in 0 files while the windows laptop reports 85.8 GB in 13094 files. After this I tried to make a test folder on both my laptops and the ubuntu box. Ins
