Slow hashing performance


I would like to use Syncthing for a one-way replication from my server to my computer at home. I run weekly jobs on the server to backup VMs and would like to transfer them for "DR"purposes.

The total amount of data to transfer is around 250 GB and it takes ages for Syncthing to re-hash everything. Is there a way to disable hashing and use a filename based synchronization ?

Thank you, Alex

Why don’t you just use a cron job with rsync? Using syncthing for one way purposes makes very little sense. And no, there is no way to disabled hashing.

My computer is running Windows and I am looking for a software that runs in the background and sync automatically. Do you know any software that could do that ?

It has been a while since I have used it but DeltaCopy provides rsync for Windows.

I was using it with BackupPC to backup laptops 8 to 10 years ago.

Not sure if this will work for you but I think there is some useful help on both sites.
