We’ve been using Syncthing for around 6 months now to sync data between two locations. Unfortunately, the hard drive died on one end, but it was a secondary drive so the OS and Syncthing configuration are still good.
When we first set it up, it took over a week to finish synchronizing approximately 1.4TB of data. We now have over 2TB of data.
Is there any way to preload the data onto a new hard drive so Syncthing doesn’t have to start from nothing? I would like to just copy the entire sync folder on the computer with the old, good drive onto the new drive, and then install the new hard drive at the far end.
