flexRaid and BitTorrent Sync

Recommended Posts

I've just started using BitTorrent Sync and it looks quite impressive. I've got several family members who need to have their computers backed up and kept in sync and this looks like just the tool.

A question about BitTorrent Sync and flexRaid which is a pseudo raid solution (similar to unRaid or SnapRAID).

My son and I have both built servers and plan to use flexRaid in SnapShot mode to protect the different family members photos, home movies and other digital material. The two servers will reside about 20 miles apart (his house and mine) and will form cloud storage for the other family members. He and I have both set up Win 7 Pro systems with Snapshot flexRaid and we plan to use BitTorrent Sync to keep the two systems in sync as well as backing up files on the various family members computers.

My question - has anyone used BitTorrent Sync with flexRaid? As I understand it, BitTorrent Sync indexes the files prior to transfer and I'm concerned about these indices (and other files) changing on a regular basis which would interfere with flexRaid. FlexRaid does fine with new or deleted files but if the content of a file changes on a regular basis, it interferes with the backup capabilities.

Any thoughts and experiences would be welcome for this new user.

Thanks much.
