Completely Mirror A Folder

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

i am using btsync on 2 computers, lets call them "Master" and "Slave".

 

Master has many files in the sync-folder, which should be mirrored to Slave.

I configured both the way it's meant to be, so Slave has only read-access.

 

The syncing is working perfect.

 

I now copy a new file into the sync-folder of Slave and it is not synced back to the Master, which also is correct.

But i would like the new file to be deleted the next time both PCs sync, because it is not in the sync-folder of Master.

I hope you get me here ;)

If i create or copy some files on Slave, they should only last a few secounds and then be deleted by the sync. I want to have Master's Files on Slave, and not a single file more!

 

Is this possible?

 

Best wishes

Only manually through the "Restore modified files to original version" setting for the properties of your read-only folder.

However, there are couple of requests for the specific functionality you desire in this thread over in the Feature Requests forum. I'd suggest adding your voice there.

Just curious, but why would you/anyone be copying a file to the slave folder only to have it deleted?

You wouldn't copy it there to have it deletet.

It is more about some user placing files there accidentally.

And if you would "spam" the Sync-Folder with misplaced files and folders, nobody would know, what files do belong there.

Furhermore i (and i think many others) would feel more relaxed about the whoel sync-machanism, if they can be sure, that the sync-folder on Slave is EXACTLY and bit-for-bit the content of Master :)
