  1. Thanks for the quick replies. The version of BTSync is 1.4.72-1 (I noticed there's an update to "..-2" but I'd guess it won't fix the issue) . The CPU usage is about half of the capacity of my "Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz" , which significantly slows things down if there is any other program trying to do something and it happens quite often. About scheduling : it would be a problem to schedule through the OS, because I have other folders which I do want to sync instantly. I'll maybe use some other sync program for the photo collection after all. I do hope scheduling lands in BTSync (because relying on algorithm optimizations to take care of processing large amounts of data is not a realistic alternative). Edit: the new version is 1.4.75-2 , I'm a few point releases back
  2. Hello everyone, my problem is that BTSync just eats a lot of CPU time, because of the size of my pictures folder (20GB, ~20k files) . Is there a way to tweak the settings in order to minimize the problem? For example configure BTSync to index the folder every three days or something like that (I don't really need instant sync for that folder - it's an archive) . Btw I'm on Linux (Manjaro). I guess other people have come across the problem, so instead of reinventing the wheel I figured I'd ask. Thanks in advance for any advice.
  3. ^^^ This! The fact is that as of now, since Bittorrent Inc. isn't making money off the service, the only imaginable reasons for the code not to be released are to hide security flaws or to avoid clones of the project. Assuming that it's just the latter - it's still not worth it, considering no one would trust a clone more than the original app, and the patches from the community would be very beneficial for the stability and feature-set of the service. The actual BTSync developers probably know all of that, so I'm just going to say - the biggest reason for me to want a FOSS BTSync is because I want to trust it.
  4. First - use sudo , you have to be root to edit that . Secondly I think you need something like btsync.conf in /etc/ or /etc/btsync (the default-debconf.conf you were trying to change is probably just a template) . Thirdly - if you're running btsync from your user account and not as root (as a service) , it probably uses a config file in /home/user/.config/... or something like that (if you run it as a user) . Try googling "btsync conf in debian" or something like that .
