Pardon if I've missed this in the updates, etc. and understand the purpose of sync/resilio is to sync folders/files across computers, but is there a way to sync two folders on same computer? If not, please consider this feature. I'm not really looking for a backup program/utility, but would like something like the old Microsoft SyncToy but better/easier to manage, so I could keep a certain directory or directories on my system sync'd to a flash drive. And vice versa. Ideally, it would not only check the drive letter, but the label on the drive, before syncing so it doesn't try to sync every flash drive I insert. Or, perhaps there's a better way to ID particular flash drives besides drive letter and/or label (since many drives come with same label from the box). Thanks!
Hello all, My brother and I have been using BTSync for a couple weeks now and have been really impressed by it. We are going to build a system to mirror our data to each other's house by using BTSync. Our goals are to keep it as low power, quite and reliable as possible while sticking to a reasonable budget, hopefully under $300 for each build. We are not expecting these to be extremely fast, but instead the qualities mentioned above. We leaning towards building off of the Raspberry Pi platform, and we need your input on the following: -Is the WD20EZRX hard drive a good choice for a reliable, cool and quite hard drive? Again, we don't need a screaming fast hard drive for this setup. Cost effective and reliable. -We each need 2TB of storage, so each Pi will need 4TB attached to it. Would you recommend to get 2 separate 2TB drives, or to go with (1) 4TB hard drive on each build? -Which hard drive enclosure do you recommend to run the drive(s) 24/7? We would like to run the hard drives without a fan to keep the power usage as low as possible and to keep them quite. We are even open to a solution that doesn't enclose the hard drives and allows the heat to dissipate into the air instead of enclosing it. We could enclose the entire system, Raspberry Pi and all in a cage-type cover that ventilated extremely well. -This is related to the enclosure, but should we be looking for enclosures that allow spin down, or is that harder on the hard drives than letting them spin 24/7? Is there an enclosure that you guys have successfully used with a Pi? -What would the bottleneck in this system be? Any other input you may have, or caveats that we are overlooking would be helpful! -Is there a summary on how encryption could work in this arrangement across different OS's, including Android?
Hi there. I'm wondering if it's possible to have two servers (in two different locations) that are mirrored, so that you would only have to set up the folders on one of the servers, instead of having to do it on both? I realize there's probably going to be some manual work that has to be done on both servers, but it would be awesome if after that, you would only need to access one of the servers. Best regards
Hi there, i am using btsync on 2 computers, lets call them "Master" and "Slave". Master has many files in the sync-folder, which should be mirrored to Slave. I configured both the way it's meant to be, so Slave has only read-access. The syncing is working perfect. I now copy a new file into the sync-folder of Slave and it is not synced back to the Master, which also is correct. But i would like the new file to be deleted the next time both PCs sync, because it is not in the sync-folder of Master. I hope you get me here If i create or copy some files on Slave, they should only last a few secounds and then be deleted by the sync. I want to have Master's Files on Slave, and not a single file more! Is this possible? Best wishes spYro
