Sync files across computers with BitTorrent Sync
Authored by: empyreal on Apr 30, '13 07:57:47AM

I am currently in the process of syncing about 300GB of music files for our Sonos between NASs in our two houses and it seems to work fine. Because one of the homes is rural and has a slow (1.5MB/sec) connection, it's going to take a while -- about a week. But preliminary tests indicate the bi-directional syncing is going great.

I am also using it so that my iPhoto library can now be on a NAS instead of my local MacBook Air, freeing up about 45GB of memory on my smallish 250GB SSD on the Air. My plan is to not have to schlep my iPhoto library around anymore.

For different purposes, I have Box.net, Dropbox, and Google Drive. BTSync fills a great hole in the functionality offered. I'm thankful for it.

How has this worked for you with regards to your iPhoto library? I'm trying to find the best way for my wife and I to manage our photo library between multiple computers - my macbook air and her macbook pro.

Not very well, I'm afraid. The monolithic file system structure doesn't really work well with BitTorrent Sync. I've been changing my mechanism to use a normal file system via Picasa, but haven't really gotten it to work well yet. I'll still be working on it.
