Migrating computers and all settings/progress

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so here's the question:

What I want to/need to do is be able to change computers on which an external drive is syncing.

Computer A is syncing a hard drive with another location, but I want to move all my SyncApp settings to Computer B and continue syncing with that same location without having to reindex everything or redownload everything.

Any suggestions or help?

Thanks in advanced.

Just copy the sync app directory. On linux it's wherever you put it or running the binary from. On windows it's usually at C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync. The settings are in the sync.dat and settings.dat files,

the indexing metacache is in the .db NoSQL files.

Thanks Lightning,

I will try it out and get back to you.

Question:

Should I actually install btsync on the other computer? Or just use the btsync.exe in the AppData folder?
