  1. Hi everybody, i m looking for a small group of guy (20/30) that want to try to make a community of unknown that share part of their computer memory to keep data of other guys. A sort of peer-to-peer small cloud storage of unknown people. this is more a social experiment than a technological one. let me know if interested or for every kind of question. Mattia
  2. Bittorrent hack - Virtual Private Network It always annoyed me a little, that sync providers have the mindset: “Either it all goes here, or it goes there…” Fact is I want remote control over my files from any device at any time, so this is the specification of how I have created my own VPN using BitTorrent Sync running as an OS agnostic background service… A Network Attached Storage. I have a 3Tb NAS with five folders: /BTsyncApp//BTsync/catalogue/BTsync/files/BTsync/shared/BTsync/devices/BTsyncApp contains the server application. It is not synchronized using BTsync. It is just the application
  3. Hello All, Over new years I decided to create a service for anyone to request an "always online" peer with a click of a button. I called it -- I basically creates a synced folder on AWS and gives you the read-write and read-only secrets. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated Also, thank you for making BitTorrent Sync. I have been using it to transfer photos and videos from my mobile device to my desktop (as a USB cable replacement) and it works great. Omid
  4. Share footage and editorial between members of our VFX unit. > Red Camera (Scarlet) R3D footage from cinematographer > Pro Rez conversions from editor > AfterEffects renders from VFX > Shares are located on 3 geographically distant Synology Servers synced via BTSync 1.4.103-9 > Reviewing other use cases opportunistically. Thanks - we love it. Keep up the fine work. Peter Farago Farago Design NYC
  5. We had a developer that worked outside source control and lost his hard drive. Due to this loss of work, I turned to BitTorrent Sync which I had been using at home for quite some time. All of our developers now have a folder setup on one of our servers that serves as a real time backup solution should they lose a hard drive. It also works for those who work in source control and have the only copy of the changes until they are checked in. The server stays pretty busy with the constant builds from the developers while tiny files are created, deleted, updated, etc.

  7. Hello, I am using BT Sync to develop our Company Self-Hosted "cloud" by distributing folders across the team. We are using full access two-ways secrets. Now, we are a small team of about 10 hard working nice guys. To increase resiliency of our cloud, I would like to ask contribution from anonymous community members. That's all the people who love what we do but don't necessarily buy from us everyday. The idea is: Using the API Encryption secret functionality, we would have some of our folders one-way synced to our community members' computers, that way they would be able to contribute to our
  8. I had a btsync installed on my vps, but i want my friend share her personal directory. How solve the issue of creating a directory without access to vps and run mkdir dir for btsync ? i need something btsync +create directory features
  9. Hey guys, I have one idea. What if some interested users (like me) will load encrypted files, important for that person) (like with encFS or TrueCrypt) on the sync Say like below 500 MB. And gives the keys to other hosts in swap of their files. So in abought 2 GB of free space you can afford a backup place for your data on 5-6 nodes. Will be interested in participicating in that kind of program
  10. I installed btsync on my mybooklive NAS. I don't want it to cause my NAS to always be thinking. I'm using a full access secret between my laptop folder and NAS. Does is make any difference in terms of how often my NAS will be "thinking" if I have my NAS be the "source" instead of the laptop folder? I see I can set rescan interval preference on my laptop but I can't with my mybooklive NAS. Thanks.
  11. Dear Community, I am using BTsync to keep all my devices in sync. As an always-on peer I want to use a cheap VPS combined with cheap webdav cloud storage (this combination is incredible cheap compared to a VPS with sufficient disk storage). I mounted the webdav storage into my linux filesystem and placed a BTSync directory inside the webdav mount point. Now my question: Everytime I have to restart BTsync due to VPS system restart for example, BTsync has to re-scan all files on the webdav share, which makes a lot of traffic. In my set up the files on the webdav storage can not be changed ou
  12. How can I my sister's bittorrent sync to automatically startup in case her mybooklive nas shuts off (like power outage or something)? I'm going to have us backup to each other's drives remotely. Got bittorrent sync up and running but everything has to be automatic for my sister. Thanks
  13. I'm currently using backupsy from There was (is?) a deal for $7 465GB VMs. I've got two of these setup (one CentOS, one Ubuntu) and running BTSync. The VMs only have 512MB of RAM, but now that we're past the early BTSync builds, this is plenty. Two aren't strictly necessary, but when I made a mistake and lost everything on one, well.... Uploading 300GB sucks. Uploading 600GB sucks hard. Uploading a further 100GB after that (when I'd done a rather dramatic change to my photo collection) is downright cruel. I'd originally also setup Owncloud to make up for my lack of DB-style web in
  14. Hi, One of the issues I have is that my upstreem speed on ADSL etc... even cable is very slow, but I do own multiple unlimited internet connections e.g. 3 mobile phones, 2 ADSL lines and a cable scattered across various places, maybe even more at some point. So what I would like to be able to do is use those internet connections (which I can do in with various tethering methods for instance) but only have one machine/file server at each home point.... Obviously when I sync across more machines with more connections the speed will naturally go up, but it's using the mobile broadband as well
