Feature Request: Decentralized Backup Mode

Recommended Posts


it looks like the feature request section on the main page is only the normal BT program. So I gonna post this idea here:


I would like to propose an addition of a backup mode. This mode would enable you to make (offsite) backups to multible machines. You should be able to define a master instance who will always define which data should be pushed into the cloud and backup instances who will always have the copy of the master instance. This solution would work within your local network and to remote locations. If you have multible offsite backup locations this solution would help you to save bandwith and speed up the distribution of your backup. It should also be implemented a time schedule for the backups (for example the master instances always starts seeding the new version of the backup at 01.00 am. In the long run a build in encrypted mode could be implemented in which the backup instances would save the backup in an encrypted container. This would be useful if you would have remote backups for example on a NAS of a friend.


The goal is to enable more people to use decentralized remote backups, to make the process of configuring remote backups much easier and make remote backups to multible machines much faster.


I'm open for feedback and let me know what you think.

It sounds like a BACKUP SECRET added to the current RW SECRET and RO SECRET syncronization modes. But the idea is to do the mirroring in real time (almost that). This new mode would solve the backup problem with the pictures and videos in the mobile phone. Many people would like to have automatic uploads and being able to delete files from the phone while keeping them in the backup folder.
