Split "Storage Folder" into persistent and impersistent parts


Recommended Posts


I am running Resilio Sync client on a respberry pi, with a usb drive.

I notice that in the storage folder (i.e., main .sync folder), Sync is constantly writing sync.log. This may not be good for usb/flash devices.

Can you split the storage folder into 2 parts:

1. persistent: Sync needs these files saved persistently, they should survive between system/Sync shutdown/reboot;

2. impersistent: such as sync.log, Sync does not need them saved, they will be re-created if necessary.

impersistent files can be moved to a tmpfs parition, so the constant writings won't wear out usb/flash devices. I have the 1GB RAM raspberry pi, it has 500+MB tmpfs paritions for log.
