Hi i just discovered this program recently and wanted to get some help on how to set it up.
Create a private dropbox-like system that runs on my pi 4 and allow my computers to access it through my LAN and also outside remotely and able to Sync files across all the machines.
Computers i have: Pi 4 with docker installed and 2 ext 2.5 hdd’s Desktop windows machine apple macbook pro laptop A windows based laptop.
I have installed the docker image using this guide https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/blob/master/README-Docker.md But now confused as to how to run this through docker and specifically want to know what this -v tag is on the readme?
Is the -v tag used to specify where i want the data folder to be in?
What happens if once i start syncthing via docker and i close the docker container, do i lose all my sync data?
How can i specify that syncthing uses my ext hdd (for example its location is /media/ext/hdd1) to store the synced folder data?
Can Synthing do the below:
Pi 4 having 3 folders on the ext drive called pictures, documents and music,
Have all my other computers sync to those 3 folders.
If my apple machine adds document 1 and 2 on the document folder, does that get synced across all my other devices either through my LAN or remotely?
What if i later migrate the container of synthing into a ubuntu server of my choosing and copy the sync folders i had before on it, and run the container again, can i maintain the same sycn data (assuming i tweak the synch connection of the other machines to now link up to the new server machine?)
Thanks in advance and looking forward to using this
