One Way Sync (I.e. Backup)

Recommended Posts



I am trying to find out if BTSync is the right product for my needs:


I have played around with the ReadOnly thing, but not really managed to get it to do what I need: If the centralized server I want to push data to, has a folder set as ReadOnly, the files at the local computer's folder won't get transfered. If the LocalComputer's folder is set as ReadOnly, any files pushed to the centralized server, will be deleted if removed at the local computer...


My needs are to somehow transfer local files, to a centralized server, using one-way backup of the files. My wish is that the files are deleted on the local workstation, the copies which have been sent to the server, should not be deleted.


Is this at all possible using BTSync?

The scenario you describe is not possible OOTB with BTsync. For this to work you would need to have some script/program watch over the .SyncArchive folder and act upon file changes to back up the data that was deleted. This would be too cumbersome for myself and I would consider different syncing methods, such as rsync, but YMMV.
