Is it possible to share a very large folder (with many subfolders/files within) with family/friends without having them sync the whole thing? The Selective Sync feature seems to do just this, but sounds like it required each one of my friends/family members to purchase a pro license? The large folder is several terabytes in size so it is out of the question that they sync the whole folder. The idea is to share this folder as read only so that they are able to see all the subfolders - and only sync the subfolders they want. I'm sure that not all of them will want to purchase the pro license, hence my question. I want to make sure the free version will work for all my friends/family before I purchase a pro license for myself.
After stopping syncing with btsync for a while I thought I give it another try. One main "issue" I had with btsync was not not being able to sync a subfolder within a synced folder. Now with version 1.2.82 I see that (if my memory serves me right) I don't get an error anymore when trying to add a subfolder in btsync of an already synced parent folder. So I have now: Main syncfolder |----------------------subfolder |---------------------- subsynced folder If I read the forum about nested or subfolder syncing the only way to accomplish this was like putting the subsynced folder in the main .SyncIgnore on all the machines that needs to sync the main folder. What would the danger be in letting the main sync folder indexing all including the subsynced folder and the subsynced folder, just the subsync? The only bad thing about that I can think of is that the subsynced folder will be indexed twice (wich might have impact on performance/memory but further? As others mentioned before I'd like to sync a subset of my Pictures to my laptop that has limited space (SSD), so I only want to sync the current year or so..
Hi, I've been reading up on several threads / FAQs re the .syncignore file created in the root of a sync-folder. Running 2 windows7 machines, btsync 1.1.82 For this sync, the root is c:\Users\Christiane Both machines have just the one line in their .syncignore : AppDataI can see syncing going on for folders AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\CookiesAppData\Roaming\BitTorrent SyncWhy?
