Syncing photos from Android to Ubuntu 14.04 laptop


I’m new to the forum, and have just discovered Syncthing after search for alternatives to cloud sites such as dropbox etc.

In a couple of months I will be travelling international and I will have my Android phone with me for photos and email etc. Basically, at this stage, I’d like to use Syncthing as kind of a backup by sending my photos back to my laptop which I plan on leaving at home.

So, my question -

Am I able to ‘send’ the photos from my phone back to my laptop (I see there is a setting basically allowing me to delete photos from my phone, but not from my laptop), when my laptop will most likely be turned off, or do both devices need to be on to sync photos from the phone to the laptop?

Many thanks.


Okay. Thanks Jakob.
