Moving Folders Around Causes Them To Re-Sync

Recommended Posts

I have a nightly script that pulls down database backups to my local hard drive. BTSync runs on the same machine and syncs these database backups to another computer far away.

 

I noticed that when I move the backup files to a new directory, say from the root folder to /2014/02/, all of the files re-sync to the other machine.

 

Does BTSync not detect that the same file has moved to a different folder? Is there any way to move files/folders around from with a shared directory and NOT have them re-sync again? This normally wouldn't be an issue but they're massive files.

Hi!

In some cases BTSync may re-sync files after moving them to another directory in the current versions.

Devs are working on it and it will be fixed in the next releases.

Thanks for reporting!
