I am running Windows Server 2012 R2 Core on my machine. I use BitTorrent Sync to synchronize and backup my valuable Documents. But I want to add another Folder-pair, for which I need to access the System Tray since BitTorrent Sync resides there. I can install the full GUI, but i'd rather not and I want to know if there is a way to access it without Explorer. (To clarify, I have access to the Command Prompt and the Power Shell)
I am considering trading out a shody DFS-R deployment (A microsoft file replication solution baked into the server OS for many years now) to try BTSync. I have been reading and have only seen a few reports of BTSync crashing out on a server several months ago. I wanted to see if this was a good/bad solution and if anyone has any experience trying this or anything similar. Basically, looking for someone to pat me on the back or talk me out of it... There is about 650GB of data synced across 3 locations. The main location has a decent 35x5mb connection, the other two sites have 1mbx10mb. The file changes amount to a lot less than the whole dataset, probably 1gb per day currently in delta sync. Should I go full Mesh or setup a Hub/Spoke deal to the main office? Any other advice in general? Pre-Seeding, is there any documentation on how to do it, or is it even supported (I hope so). Will be running a test folder first..
