Sharing the same directory with exclusions for one version


#1

I keep all my personal stuff at the moment stored this way:

root

—documents

—archive

—misc

then in syncthing I have a share setup for “root” and one for “documents” I use this as my root dir is about 20GB, while documents is only 50mb so I sync documents with laptop as I don’t need the other stuff. But this directory layout is annoying.

I would rather do:

documents

—archive

—misc

then setup two syncthing entries: -one that excludes archive and misc (for my laptop - the 50mb version) -one that gives me everything (the 20GB version)

is this possible with syncthing? if so, how do i set it up?

It is not possible, as ignores are per folder, and stored in the folder. You could however ignore archive and misc on the laptop instead.

Darn, thanks for the suggestion Jakob.
