How To Stop Btsync From Deleting

Recommended Posts

Hello, thanks for reading!

 

I use BTsync to sync files between my media server and a HTPC, the media server doesnt have a lot of storage capacity so i clear it frequently.

Now the downside to this is that btsync also deletes the files from my HTPC even though i may have not gotten to watch them yet.. this is kind of annoying and i want to stop btsync from deleting files from my HTPC, how do i do this ?

 

 

Its set up as read only from the server so the HTPC wont write to the server when something changes which is what i want.

 

thanks!

For some reason i cant edit my post but i figured i'd elaborate the situation:

 

Media Server running linux - this is where i generated the read only secret on.

HTPC running Windows - receives new data but will not upload anything else from the media library to the server (which is intended)

i just want the received data to sit there while the Server can be emptied to receive more files and fill the library.

 

i hope it all makes sense.

You cannot. Sync is meant to synchronize all clients to be identical.

It will keep deleted files in .SyncArchive for a period of time, though.
