I've been trialling Resilio Sync and haven't had much luck. I have two NAS servers in different locations that I want to keep in sync with a desktop PC and travel laptop. The main things I want to keep in sync are a 2.5TB photo collection and a Lightroom Catalogue. The Lightroom catalogue will only be used in on one machine at a time. I had various teething problems, but the main one is the Lightroom catalogue repeatedly gets corrupted, as reported by Lightroom. I been careful to make edits only on one machine, close down Lightroom and wait for the sync before using it on the other machine. Even backup catalogues that are generated automatically by Lightroom have been corrupted when sync'ed. I've previously been using another sync application and haven't had any issues with Lightroom before. Is Resilio suitable for this? Am I doing something wrong?
If you have multiple users that might have Lightroom open at the same time DO NOT!!! use BTSync for The Lightroom database file. I just lost 2 days of work because 2 users had the same catalog open. This is not an issue with BTSync but user error, and I don't want anyone else to run into the same issue. I have not found a solution to the problem but PLEASE DON'T make the same mistake I did. If anyone has a solution to use BTSync with Lightroom please share. I also want to thank the Bittorrent developers, i love every aspect of your product. It has made my life so easy managing files on 3 Macs / 2 Windows Machines / 1 Linux Server. please keep up the good work. I wonder if it would be worth not allowing .lrcat/.lrdata to be backed up just to save users the same issue. Just a thought.
