  1. Goodday, I have a need for selective versioning, at least per share. The case in point is that I have a directory for work ducments and another for VM instances I want to sync between two computers, my desktop ( a fast computer) and my laptop (not as fast, but needed when out in the field , coupled with a backup central NAS server. The image size of the VMs directory totals only 5G (Linux instances but as they run, I have a 6x multiplication in less that 24hours, synching to the central NAS/backup server. Okay, on the NAS (Linux server) I could start a separate btsync instance, but I don't have that facility on the MacOSX machines where I run the VMs on (though only one at a time using the VMs, still both the Desktop and Laptop is on for various other reasons), and to do the sync_trash_ttl globally, I loose my work document history/versioning ;( As such I want a way to specify for a share/directory how much (and or how often) I need to version it instead of for the whole instance. Extending the patch and version size settings to be per directory/share would also be handy in this regard. Come to think about it, it would be nice to also have a way to say that it should only keep a single version per day, instead of for every sync. Would be great if that is extended to a version every hour for the first day etc. but that starts to become a backup policy...
  2. I love the p2p idea in *some* cases, and in others I want an OwnCloud/DropBox solution (central server arbitraging for documents getting edited, and syncing as and when the users are available as the central server/store/cloud is "always" available, and with OwnCloud it's in your control) What I've been looking at doing, is setting up a "sync server" in the cloud with my hosting provider (that already does multi-Terabyte tansfers) so that I have the best of both worlds: a p2p sync, but a "cloud" store that is available whenever my other peers aren't available. perhaps create ready to deploy Amazon type VM images for users to deploy to help sync them?
