Temporarly Pause Sync On A Folder By Folder Basis ( Scripted)

Recommended Posts



I'm currently using btsync to sync my lightroom catalog between my machines.


It works very well BUT


I NEED to pause synching before starting lightroom else my catalog is at "corruption" risk !


I'd like to automate: 

- pause sync of lightroom catalog software

- start lightroom

- as soon as lightroom is finished, unpause sync


Is there a way to script that ?


for me, the easiest would be a .sync-paused file in the synched folder 

- touch .sync-paused

- start lightroom

- rm .sync-paused ...

Thanks in advance..

Unfortunately it is not possible at the moment. I can only advise to shut sync down before running lightroom and start it when lightroom quits. That would be rather simple shellscript which you'll need to start instead of lightroom.
