Sync'ing to different destination folders


(Simon Feay) #1

Hello, I have a 3 computers at different locations and I’d like two of them to backup to the third. I’ve set this up but syncthing will only have my copy to the same destination folder on my local machine. I’d like each remote machine to backup to a separate hard drive on my local computer. Is that possible?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

If I understand you correctly, you’ll just need to have a different shared folder per your two computers and share those only with the third and not one another.

Also, please beware that Syncthing is a synchronisation tool and not a backup tool. It will happily sync any accidential deletion, modification, encryption-by-malware, etc.
