  1. You can add the file extension to the delay config file: That way the file doesn't get synced immediately but maybe after 60 seconds, enough time for larger pictures or movies.

    Energy Management

    Check the Power user preferences Things to change: config_refresh_interval (if you use it in your LAN most often only, there's no need for a frequent tracker/relay refresh) config_save_interval (just increase it to a few hours) folder_rescan_interval (It's possible that Sync misses some file modifications, to still detect these file, all files get scanned every 10 minutes. It's rare and if you can live with the fact, that the file, if it happens at all, won't be synced to the other device in maybe 10 hours, then just increase the rescan interval to maybe 36000) Finally disable debug logging in the preferences. Restart Resilio sync and report back if it improved the energy managment.
  3. Your NAS has a quad core CPU. Resilio Sync seems to be a single threaded application. So 25% CPU load signals that the CPU was the limiting factor, because on core was fully loaded.

    Backups for Clients?

    Resilio Sync is a sync and not a backup. So you have to decide what you want to offer. A backup solution or a sync solution like DropBox. A backup is something which allows incremental backups, allows you to restore deleted files, allows you to handle ransomware. Resilio Sync only has the archive folder, that's it. It's not a reliable backup. For backup your customers have to install a backup software like Duplicati and select your server as destination. That's the most simple case, probably. For sync you have to buy Resilio Business at least (no home use any longer), maybe you'll even need Resilio Connect (depending on how many users you have). You could use encrypted folders on your side, so you don't see the files. However, then you still have to do a lot of work to make it safe and trustworthy. In the end it will get quite expensive. You have to pay the Resilio Sync license per user, you have to pay for your hardware and you have to pay yourself. In both cases, you'll have to also add a further backup, too. But this requires a second location, somewhere else, so a fire or something else doesn't affect the backup location.

    Info about Nas 2 Nas

    1. You can try to install it natively: or simply use the docker image: 1a. Three options: i: Both NAS are not in the same LAN but connected to the internet. By default, they will connect to a tracker server, with this they find each other, build up a direct connection and sync. ii: The same as i), just that the required ports for a direct connection across the internet are blocked by a firewall, then they will use a relay server to connect and sync again throught he relays server. iii: You've deactivated tracker and relay servers, Sync won't be able to sync both NAS across the NAS if they are behind a firewall and have dynamic IP adresses. Once you connect your laptop to NAS1, the laptop and NAS1 will sync. Then you connect the laptop to NAS2, the changes will get synced to NAS2, in the end, if NAS2 didn't made some changes, both NAS will be in sync. 2.

    Info about Nas 2 Nas

    Just install it and test it yourself, it's free and easy to install and to remove. 1. If Resilio is available for both NAS, then it will work. 1a. I don't understand what you mean. A laptop can sync with both NAS, and both NAS can sync with the laptop even if one NAS is off. 2. What shall be decrypted? Do you mean an encrypted data transfer? 3. Yes 3a. Yes, because Resilio Sync does not need a central server.

    License per user, or per install?

    Per User: You can install Resilio Sync on as many devices as you want, as long as it's not for commercial use. So you can install Resilio Sync on all your family member devices with a single user license, too. Then it is, as if you own all the devices. But: All your family members will have the same user account in Resilio Sync and thus can see the same shares. That becomes problematic if you plan to sync financial data on your devices and also want to sync other shares with your kids devices. Then they also have access to the financial data shares. If you don't want this and want that each family member has its own private shares and has to share them with others in order to sync them, then you need another license, in case of the family license you get 5 independent users.

    Move folder

    It won't remove it from other machines, it will just stop syncing the folder on your machine. So disconnect it, move the folder and then connect it again with the new custom set path.

    Ransomware Question

    What you're asking for is what the archive folder does for you already. e.g. I have PC A, PC B and one NAS synced. I delete my entire collection on PC A, on PC B and the NAS the entire collection will get moved to the archive folder from where I can copy it back on PC B or the NAS. I modify my entire collection on PC A (e.g. optimize the images, did this just a few weeks ago. So the same a ransomware would do). On PC B and the NAS all files will get moved to the archive folder and the new files synced. So i could restore the files from PC B and the NAS from the archive if I did something wrong. In reality I had to delete the archive, to free some space afterwards Nevertheless, I have an incremental daily backup, too. So whenever I do something stupid, I could restore the files from the daily backup, too.

    Ransomware Question

    It's impossible for Resilio Sync. It's a sync and not a backup. For a ransomware you need a working backup and nothing else! Every other solution might work or not, depending on the ransomware. If you have a ransomware, it's very likely the remote location has it too, thus it would be useless if Resilio Sync tells me that files got encrypted if they get encrypted on each PC independently. That's why you need a backup, at best an offline backup! Resilio has a basic backup, which prevents the destruction of remote files due to a ransomware or deletion, it's the archive folder. I don't see why they should implement another additional layer if you could simply install an AV scanner on your PC to detect a ransomware? So what don't you like about the archive folder? Resilio Sync works in the background and the less I notice its presence the better. This means if I edit a lot of files (e.g. batch image editing) I don't want to get disturbed by some stupid warnings that a lot of files got changed recently. I know it. That's why I'm doing it. I also don't want another additional CPU load. So again, what's wrong with the archive folder? What's wrong with using an AV scanner?
  11. Tried this already? I selected to only manually add the folders, so I set my destination NAS to the disconnected mode. That way I had to manually enable the synchronization of the smartphone backup but I was able to select a custom destination which also renamed the folder in the Sync list.
  12. I have to agree with xkey, I also don't like the way selective sync does work and thus I don't use it, even though I would loved to have it. Your implementation is nice and maybe some people have a use for it, I however find it very cumbersome and don't have any use for it. It makes deleting files awkward and its use in my opinion difficult. I also would prefer a much simpler "select the subfolder you want synced on your client individually and all files and subfolders of this subfolder get fully synced immediately" solution. Of course, I can simulate this solution by manually adding the subfolders to Resilio Sync instead of the root folder, but then the overview in Sync gets lost. And then, maybe, add your solution on top of this, so one can, for the excluded subfolders, still use this placeholder feature.

    Ransomware Question

    Resilio Sync is a two way sync and thus not a backup! Resilio Sync stores the old file in a so called Archive folder as a very very basic 'backup'. So in the case of a ransomware encrypting all files on computer A, these encrypted files will get synced to computer B, but on computer B Resilio Sync copies the not encrypted files to the Archive folder first. Still, because it's a two way sync, it's not a backup. It's more likely that the ransomware infects computer B through the network, too and thus encrypts all files there, too, including the archive. So don't skip the backup and don't omit an AV scanner on each computer, even if some people think they don't need one.

    What port does resilio sync use?

    It's due to the use of relay servers:

    Resilio/pfSense direct connection There's everything you need
