Read Only Folder To Upload To Clients That Not Have All Files

Recommended Posts

Hi boys and girls,

 

I bet this question must have been asked a gazillion times, but still i can't find a clear answer:

 

Client (A ) runs sync with a readonly key and completely syncs with Read/Write client (B ), comes along R/W client (C ) when client (B ) is offline.
 

Will client (A ) upload this new data to client (C ) although he's supposed to only have a read-key?

 

Thank you!!!

Max - Happy syncer

In your scenario, if A and B were online together and had time to sync B's changes to A, then A will be able to deliver those changes to C. Many users of Sync have an always-on device that uses read-only keys like your A to serve as a cloud replacement, so that other devices always have a peer to sync with.

 

The read-only designation refers to the fact that changes made to the contents of the synced folder on A will not propagate to any other peer.

Perfect! 
Thank you very much for this answer, that was exactly what I was looking for!
I have my raspberry pi now on a read-only key and it's always on, so it can propagate changes to the other clients!

Thanks again trevellyan, for this clear answer!
