I use syncthing (among other things) to backup a remote machine over the internet that is switched on only intermittently and every time only for a few couple of hours. This basically works fine, however I have one large file of around 7GB on this box. I suppose it’s so large that it never gets fully synced on my syncthing machine before the remote machine gets powered down. Questions:
- Is it correct that files get only synced if they can be transmitted completely during one transmission squence?
- This means that if a file is so large that it cannot be transmitted during a single “power on” period it will never make it to the other system?
- It is currently not possible to sync a file chunk wise over a period of several separate connection sessions, not even if an affected file hasn’t change inbetween?
- Would it be possible to imagine such a feature or would you say “no way”?
So, what I’m asking for is a kind of resume functionality for an interrupted sync process for a large file. For my scenario this would be rather helpful (if not to say required to be able to do a full sync).
