Title might be confusing, not sure how to succinctly describe it
- Desktop (Linux)
- Laptop (Chromebook)
- Phone (Android)
- Raspberry Pi, acting as a homelab/server
What I want is to sync all files from my 3 devices (Desktop, Laptop & Phone) to my Raspberry. So far, no problem. I also sync the files from my phone and laptop to my desktop (into a separate folder). So basically, I have this:
- Desktop:home/ ↔ Raspberry:desktop/
- Desktop:phone/ ↔ Raspberry:phone/ ↔ Phone:home/
- Desktop:laptop/ ↔ Raspberry:laptop/ ↔ laptop:home/
The problem I am having figuring out is that I have a few apps on all devices that need to sync their folders, that are in different locations but “nested” inside folders already synced.
I read that syncing twice is bad, but is it possible to do e.g.
- Desktop:home/Documents ↔ Raspberry:desktop/Documents
- Phone:home/Documents/ ↔ Raspberry:phone/Documents
- Phone:home/Documents/Notes ↔ Raspberry:desktop/Documents/Notes
- Laptop:home/Notes ↔ Raspberry:desktop/Documents/Notes
I will never use 2 devices at once. If not, what would be a better solution? (I was thinking of bind mounts on the Raspberry, but I am not well versed in them.
