I do not really know if there is a setting for this... or if this question has already been asked. Sorry if one of these is the case. I use Resilio (Home personal version) to sync some folders between my PC and a WD Mycloud EX4100. At the same time, the same folders are synched to my Onedrive account (through symbolic link)... Now, it often happens that Onedrive keeps spinning trying to sync the files (probably "TEMP" files or others) in the ".sync" hidden folder. Since Onedrive MS support is rather pathetic (they are not able to let people exclude files and folders from the sync process... duh!), I was wondering if it is possible to move the ".sync" hidden folder to another position (and tell Resilio to look for it in that other position), so that Onedrive does not sync it. Thanks for any help!
I'm thinking of downloading Resilio Sync, but I have a few questions first. Basically, what I'd like to be able to do is use Resilio Sync to keep my local My Documents folder synced with either a Cryptomator or Veracrypt vault stored in my local cloud folder (be it for Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.). In more detail, what I'd like to do is drag copies of individual files and file folders that I'd like to keep backed up into my Cryptomator/Veracrypt vault and have any changes I make to the local version of those files synced with the copies stored in the vault. I don't want to work directly out of Cryptomator or Veracrypt, I still want to be able to work with my files locally. I want all of this to be done automatically for me - I've heard that some sync tools have the ability to periodically unlock your Cryptomator or Veracrypt vaults in order to sync changes between the files inside the vault and the local copies of those files. I'm wondering if Resilio Sync has this capability. If Resilio Sync can do what I just described, I'd also like to know how Resilio Sync functions with blocked permissions. I really don't like how Resilio Sync is closed-source, but I'd still like to try it out because I've heard its so user friendly and well maintained compared to most of the competition. When I want to use closed-source software but don't feel entirely comfortable with the privacy implications though, I'll sometimes set up a firewall rule to block outbound connections for that software. If I do this with Resilio Sync, will it still function properly, considering that I'm looking to sync between files and folders technically stored on the same machine? I can't imagine why Resilio Sync would need to be able to ping home if all the syncing I'm doing is done on the same machine. Also, I've heard some talk of Resilio Sync having issues with randomly deleting files. Are these claims unfounded? If not, are the deleted files simply moved to the recycle bin? I just got a little nervous reading about this. Does it sound like Resilio Sync is a good fit for my needs? Thanks for any help.
Hi, I have a OneDrive-Account and a small VPS-Server, which only has very little Storage. I wonder, if there is possibly some way to use the VPS-Server as a btSync to Onedrive-"Connector"? Obviously, as I dont have a lot of Storage on the VPS-Account, it would require a Setup where the Sync-Client functions as a direct "translator/broker" between the ResilioSync and OneDrive-API's. This would be really useful in my opinion, because it would provide a way to setup a cloudbased-only Scenario with Sync leveraging 3rd-Party Storage. I know of the possibility to simply buy storage+ Virtual Machine on Amazon, and setup a Client there, but I find it too expensive. If there was a way to use OneDrive without the need to replicate the entire storage on a dedicated LAN-Server (NAS) it would be awesome. Any ideas?
Hi I wanted to setup an encrypted folder inside a cloud service such as OneDrive or Dropbox but it's not working as anticipated. This is what I did: - Created a new encrypted folder from within BTSync (2.3.1), located inside my local OneDrive Folder that is synched to the cloud - Added a few sample files - I expected to have unencrypted access from my desktop pc but having the folder encrypted in the cloud - Accessed my OneDrive folder in the cloud from my laptop (via Web Browser) - Files are accessible unencrypted Looks like since OneDrive has unencrypted R/W access on my PC, it transfers all files within the folder unencrypted. Any suggestions how to setup such an encrypted backup folder inside a cloud service? Thanks!
