File Block Sync Deduplication Thru Block Hash Database.


Recommended Posts

I whish btSync to have a file block hash database, so when a block of data it's required by file being sync the peer first check it hash against the database If found it already present on a particular local file then just take it from such local file.

This feature allows for an optimal bandwidth utilization since some files may share exactly the same partial or total data, it's an very common scenario to take on count and thus avoid to tx/rx data already on local files.

Such block hash database also could be important for other features I previously requested as key element on data integrity protection.
