Upgrade Folders

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I have updated all my computer/devices to Sync 2.0

But the folder that is being synced has a 1.4 label in the icon, is there any way I can update this folder to 2.0 without having to go through all the hassle with new keys and such?

 

Thanks in advance!

You remove the folders in BitTorrent Sync, add them again and they should appear as normal 2.0 folders. Then you'd have to share them via the links to the peers you want to sync to.

Thanks for you answer, I was afraid that was what I had to do.

The reason why I didnt is because when I add the share on a filled folder, it seems to empty the folder and start redownloading all the files, it can take ages.

Is there really no other way?

I looked all over for some FAQ for users upgrading from 1.4 to 2.0 but found nothing on the matter.

Is it even safe for my data? How to upgrade folders without having to redownload dozens of Gigabytes?
