Two Way Syncing Between Mobile And Pc?

Recommended Posts

I just set up some folders to sync to my PC... I love it!

 

Two features that I though would automatically be possible is:

 

1)  As an easy way to clean up the space on phone, to be able to deleted synced files on PC and propagate those deletions to the phones.

 

2) After realizing that option one is not possible because the added folders from phone seem to only have the "Read Only" option, I though if I at least delete files on phone it would propagate deletions to the PC. 

 

IO just found out about BitTorrentSync and trying a million things at once  but is option 1 and/or two possible with some steps I possibly missed? If option two is also not possible what is the use of the "Archive" folder if deletions are not propagated anyway (or does it only record changes to same file)?

 

Thanks!

Oh man... this is cool!  I realized I was selecting the "New backup" option for my folders. What I needed to do was create an empty folder on on the PC and then "Add Folder" on mobile device.

 

Still have a question on the Archiving. Is it true for any type of syncing with BitTorrentSync that only file changes are recorded in the Archiving folder and not file deletion?

Files are get archived upon deletion only on Desktop Sync. As mobile devices have very limited space, once you delete file on Desktop - it will be really deleted on mobile, not moved to Archive.
