Per Device .syncignore?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it is possible to have the .SyncIgnore only apply to certain deviecs.

I have 2 Windows machines and 1 Android device syncing my pictures library. I would like for the windows machines to sync the ENTIRE folder, which they do. however I only want certain folders to sync on my android.











I want everything in Pictures on the windows PCs however I only want Fldr1 and Fldr3 on my android. is this possible with the current iteration of BT Sync? if so how would it be done?

It is possible and I have been doing it for 6 different machines on 4 folders.

All you need to do is add the name of folders you want to ignore to the android device's syncignore file as follows *Fldr2/some_sub_folder. PRACTICE with a new folder before you apply it to your pictures. If you confuse btsync strange things happen and you will have a jumbled mess. 


You can use the script I wrote to make the process faster for a lot of folders.
