Bittorrent Sync Update Frequency And Urgency


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of using BitTorrent Sync to receive sensitive data from clients & distribute sensitive reports. One concern I have is that there seem to be a lot of updates to BitTorrent Sync, and automatic updating does not work. Most of the time I end up going to the BitTorrent Sync web site to download the latest version.


I'm using Windows 7, 64-bit.


Am I doing something wrong?


My clients are not sophisticated computer users, and they're busy taking care of patients, and I don't want them getting messages saying there's a new version of BitTorrent Sync every week that they need to install. Yet, if I tell them to uncheck the Preferences box for "Check for updates automatically," most of them would never update the software again and I'm assuming that at some point that would become a problem.


Any ideas?

Please remember that Sync is still in "beta" - this explains the frequency of updates, and also it's important to remember that not every "beta" build gets pushed via "auto-update".


Once Sync leaves "beta", auto-update will function correctly, until then, you may need to manually download new "beta" builds from the links provided here
