Large shares with slow connection

Ok, I switched over from BTSync recently, and am having some problems.

I have two of my shares that are quite large(215files/28GB, and 2210files/3TB~) and I’m on ADSL at my home, with a 6Mb/.4Mb~ connection. They both seem to start uploading quite a bit of data when it starts syncing(not file transfers), that can take hours+, and saturates my connection.

If it only had to do it once, that wouldn’t be a problem, but it seems to do it often.(maybe when there’s an interruption in the connection?)

I switched my PC with the bigger share to my cells hotspot to test it, and it was faster, but still took ages at 1MB~/s.

Is there anything I can do to mitigate this somehow? I’ve setup QoS on my router. It’s helped with the saturation, but it takes even longer to sync now.

If it matters, the server is Linux, running with inotify, and the home PCs are Win10 with Synctrayzor.

Sorry if this doesn’t make a lot of sense, or is long winded. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to explain it in detail. lol

Every time you reconnect it has to exchange indexes. Index size is relative to the data size. There is nothing you can do now, though there is a ticket open from a few years ago explaining how this could be fixed, yet nobody has made a proper attempt at fixing it, and there is no ETA when it will happen.

Ah, that sucks to hear. Thanks for the info though.
