I am new to the sync world and have read amazing things about BitTorrent Sync. I am trying to sync files on a USB connected drive on my Mac to our Mac Mini Server.

 

I do not understand what happens on the server side.  I cannot answer the secret question as I am not sitting there.  I can log on but what then.

 

I would be happy with a one way sync from me to the server.

 

Sorry to be so confused,

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Debbie

Have you installed Sync on both your Mac and your Mac Mini Server?

 

Sync needs to be installed and running on both your devices.

 

Once it is, you add the folder of files you wish to sync on your Mac to Sync and generate a "secret" for the folder.

 

Then, in Sync on your Mac Mini Server, you select the folder you wish to sync your incoming files to, and enter the same secret you previously generated on your Mac for this second folder.

 

The two folders will then sync between devices.
