Purge File Occupation Without Disconnect

Recommended Posts

It's so great to have BitTorrent Sync to support the place holder and file-level on-demand sync.

However, the current implementation looks not so good yet to release disk space.


Let's assume to carry out a mobile PC with limited storage capacity.

I have a folder connected, while "sync all" is disabled.


I add new files to the synched folder.

When the storage space is running out, I want to regain storage space with converting files into place holders, for ones which have been pushed to "sync all" enabled devices.


To achieve such, I was not able to find any other way than disconnecting the folder with the deleting file option.

This is not only troublesome, but also have risk to lose files which have not been pushed to others.


I hope that this problem can be addressed soon.
