Time-Limited Pause With Automatic Un-Pause

Recommended Posts

Most of the time when I pause something, it's temporary. I don't leave things paused forever.

 

Half the time when I pause something, I forget to unpause it and only notice a few days later when something isn't syncing / backing up.

 

Please could you allow me to pause sync for a specific time (1 hour, 6 hours, 24 hours) after which it un-pauses automatically? This applies equally to the overall pause and to the selective pause (which is a great addition and is definitely appreciated!)

 

Here's how CrashPlan does it, and boy does it make a huge difference!

(there's no "indefinitely" there because CrashPlan is for backups and I guess they decided you never want to pause your backups indefinitely)

If you want to pause BTSync completely why don't you write yourself a script that stops btsync, sleeps for x amount of seconds on user input basis and then starts it again?

i don't think this is a feature that would make it in the application.

Judging by the progress on the Windows service feature, you might be right Moe...

 

Remember this request next time you forget to un-pause your sync though, you might change your mind :)

@rstarkov, @Moe

Never say never :). Your feature request is heard and filed. When planning new release we usually take several from feature requests.
