Set Up Period Of Synchronization Of Files

Recommended Posts

Hi! One of the reasons I use BitTorrent Sync is synchronizing of games' saves between different computers. The problem is that some games perform saving very often, so. because of real time synchronization BitTorrent Sync is always busy with synchronizing of that files. Is it possible to switch off real time synchronization and use periodical one instead?

 

There is an option "folder_rescan_interval" in Additional settings, but it seems that it does not influence the real time synchronization, it just performs folder rescan every 10 minutes by default.

Not natively. Consider adding your voice to this topic over in the Feature Requests forum.

A "workaround" would be to use the scheduling abilities of your operating system to run/kill Sync on a schedule. i.e. on Windows, you could use the Task scheduler to run Sync at certain times of the day.

Correct - the purpose of this is to pick up any changes that weren't detected in "real time" for whatever reason. The folder_rescan_interval setting itself has no bearing on real-time detection of changes to files - it's more of a "fall back" mechanism.
