  1. Thank you, your first link did the trick to me. I went to the resilio folder and renamed the "DCIM" to "Nexus 6 Camera". Ideally I would like to have all my phone's folders into one folder through (named "Nexus 6" and it would contains "Camera", "Downloads", etc), but it is already a great progress! Thanks!
  2. An image worth 1000 words, so here is what I am talking about: I added my Nexus 6 Android phone to my Resilio, and created an "Camera backup": Then on my computer, it appears like that: With the name "DCIM". I tried to add another folder but it just keeps the folder name (Like "Downloads" or stuff like that). I like to keep my thing clean and I would love to simply have a "Nexus 6" folder that contains "DCIM", "Downloads", and other folders I would like to add. Or at worst, be able to rename the folder on my computer to "Nexus 6 Camera backup", but I cannot find the menu to "rename this folder locally": (and in "Preferences": Does anybody knows if it is possible? Also, quick note for to the devs: "Clear" == "Remove from device" was definitely not 'clear' in my mind I love Resilio, so keep up the work and I can't wait to be able to use it as I want!!
  3. Lol ok I know I speak alone, but to do what I want: Get the pro version (Which I just bought, after 5min of try with the pro version haha), then: Local computer A Remote computer B Install license on both computer on remote computer B: Go to "My Devices" tab -> "Computer B's name" -> Select "Sync all" Then Disconnect all folders you don't care, and for the folder you care: set "Selective Sync" to Off On local computer A: "My Devices" tab -> "Computer A's name" -> Select "Selective Sync" (like this I have the choice of what to do on this master computer) Then About the folder you care: Set "Selective Sync" to On Then you can, from computer A, add a file into the folder. It gets automatically Sync to remote Computer B, then remove it from A once fully synced, and it is still on B! Even better, from A, you can see "shadows" (placeholders) of the files, and decide individually to delete them or not! Insane! I love it! Thank you for such an awesome software! Took me a while to figure out this case but so much granularity! Thanks again for such a great software!
  4. Ok I just tried with a friend's computer and the home pro version. I can sync a file, then once he has it, I right click on the file and "unsync it". So far it does what I want! I will do more tests but I am pretty sure I am gonna go with the sync home pro version! Looks amazing for the speed!

  6. Ok I tried the 14 days trial but I am still confused. If anybody knows, to summarize what I want to do: I have data on an external HD on location A. I want to send this data on a "inside HD always on" on remote location B (a windows computer, not a server). The aim would be to have my data on 2 different points, but to control what is into the sync folder on B without having to always sync it back to A. The documentation isn't super clear to me on how to do that
  7. I think this documentation says I can access all my devices from one particular device https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/205457815-Sync-Private-Identity-Linking-My-Devices I think I am getting close to know what I want. Last step would be to confirm I can move a file from my computer A to far-away computer B, then deleting file from A without deleting it from B, all that without moving from A.
  8. Ok I am still trying ot figure that out. I see here https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000508484-Sync-Home-Sync-Business-Free-vs-Pro- then here https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/205458095-Selective-Sync and https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/205457775-Synchronization-Modes That it might be possible. However I am not totally sure that I can have full control on the folder on my remote B from A.
  9. Hello, I am using the Sync home (free version for now). Question: I am living at A, and my grand father is living on B (I go there for vacations usually). B has a Windows Desktop computer, and a 4Tb hard drive. (so lots of empty space). I have a lot of files to backup there (from A to B). Is it possible (and if yes how to do it), to have both place (A and B) to have Sync home, then I place all my files one by one in the Sync folder from A, and once they are on B, to delete them from A while they remain on B, without my grand father touching anything (he is not tech at all)? From what I read from the sync home web page, he would have to stop sharing files by files which might be complicated for him, or I would simply "stop sharing the file" from A and he would keep it on B (but I won't see it anymore from A, right?) Anyway, my question is simply: is there a granularity in how I can access my files remotely? I see on the Sync home web page "Create your own Disaster Recovery site" which is basically what I want: To send files from A to B, delete them from A if possible (because they are on external hard drives and I don't want to let the hard drive connected all the time once data is sync), and still see them on B and chose or not to (1) delete them from A remotely, (2) or re-fetch them with granularity from B to A if I need them? I hope I am clear on my question Thanks for any help!
