We’ve received many requests from the Sync community to be able to install Sync on a Linux family OS in the “Linux way” — using packages and a standard tool (yum or apt-get) to get the package downloaded and installed. We’re thankful for the packages and installation scripts made by our community members (thanks to […]
Security and privacy are two of the leading issues for users when transferring important data. Keeping data on-premises makes business and IT leaders feel more secure, but comes with technical challenges when there’s a need to share data externally. BitTorrent Sync offers the ability to sync data securely and privately by replicating data directly between […]
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.

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 […]

There’s no detail too small; we look at every background, every prop, every print, making sure the final product is awesome.

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. Sync makes this very […]
Matt Singley is the CEO of Singley + Mackie, a creative digital agency based in Los Angeles with associates around the world: When I co-founded our agency in 2010, one of the core values we established right away was to let our employees and contractors be “intellectually green”, which often includes working remotely instead of in a central office.
