Sync is a big idea providing a very simple solution: the ability to move large amounts of data directly and efficiently between devices without the public cloud. We’ve been evolving the initiative from the start, and the launch of Sync 2.0 was a major milestone: the introduction of a commercial version of the product. Today […]
When the very first BitTorrent Sync (now Resilio Sync) mobile apps (on Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Kindle) were introduced, it let users access files directly from a desktop folder, without a roundtrip to the cloud. When we launched Sync 2.0, we took a step forward by allowing users to link their personal devices together, […]
Andy Needham (@imcalledandy) shares how he sets up his workflow with Resilio Sync (formerly BitTorrent Sync), ensuring all his project files are backed up on a NAS box and accessible whenever he needs to work on them:
Drobo strives to make data storage as easy-to-use and automated as possible. These are core values we share with BitTorrent Sync; if you ever need to get files from one device to another (no matter what or where it is), simply share the folder and Sync takes care of the rest.
When we introduced the first version of our API, we wanted to provide developers access to the BitTorrent Sync engine and see what applications they could build to leverage it. It was an effort to build a community that made good use of distributed technology, one that took the reliance off of third-party servers and […]
We built BitTorrent Sync to be a great tool for business workgroups and individual power users. It gives people an easy way to sync files across their devices and share with others, leveraging peer-to-peer technology to work fast and maintain a high standard of privacy.
Steve Cassingham, founder of Metastyle Films, shares how Resilio Sync (aka BitTorrent Sync) helps him and his editor share Adobe Premiere files without having to deal with consistent folder structures:
Danny Davis, the founder of Wonder Giant, shares how his team uses BitTorrent Sync to focus on creating and how they remove technical hurdles like providing everybody access to files and keeping projects secure:
The more you use Sync, the more folders you have in the main list, the more you interact with other users, and the more devices synchronize files. Until now, the more valuable information you have in Sync, the harder it often became to navigate. Recently, we implemented a search feature and some additional columns in […]
Corey Henderson, co-founder and CTO of RecordSetter, shares how at the 2015 Bay to Breakers road race in San Francisco, BitTorrent Sync played an important role in helping the team transfer hundreds of Gigabytes of video footage under less than ideal Internet access:
The Sync mobile app gives you a way to access all of your shared files on the go, without the need for any cloud storage. Whether you’re reviewing a work document, checking out a video clip, or backing up you the photos/videos to another device, it’s fully private and in your control.
Back in the day, everything you put into Dropbox was synced to all of your computers. As more cloud storage solutions arrived, they behaved the same way. Users eventually demanded that some files sync but not others, and “selective sync” was born. You could simply choose which folders to sync and which ones to just leave […]
It’s been a few weeks since we took the beta tag off Sync and introduced version 2.0. Each week, we publish a story here that showcases how a customer uses the product, and we’re quickly learning some of the areas where Sync has been most useful.
If someone shares a large folder with you, or there’s a folder you need on another computer, you may want access to it but don’t want to sync the entirety of its contents onto your device. When connecting to a folder, you are presented with a “Sync all” toggle, which allows you to choose if […]
Steve Bliesner shares his team’s story: Here at The Photo Booth Guys, our aim is to create beautiful photos and amazing experiences. There’s no detail too small; we look at every background, every prop, every print, making sure the final product is awesome. We operate in Australia and the United Kingdom, offering both photo booths […]
Let’s say there’s a folder of files you’d like to access on your mobile device; maybe there’s something you need to review on the train ride home, or there’s a project file you’d like to show a client. Whatever the reason, the process of getting this set up can be challenging.
