Is A Folder Share Ownership Transfer Possible?

Recommended Posts



We have all our BitTorrent Sync folder shares stored on our main server. From this server we copy the share keys and give them to employees. These shares must then be approved by the main server.


We want to sync the existing shares via keys to a new server and then remove them from the old server. Is there a way to transfer the ownership of a folder share along with the key so that the new server receives the approval requests?

Sync 1.4 does not have folder ownership. To migrate to a new server you'll need:

1. Share RW key to the new server.

2. Wait it to Sync fully with old server.

3. Produce new Links on a new server. Everyone who tries to add folder via new Link will send approval request to a new server.
