I’m looking to sync two sometimes-on machines. I’m concerned about delays in sync when they don’t both happen to be on at the same time for an extended period of time. (Days or weeks, not months.)
I have a third machine which is (almost) always on. I don’t particularly have a need to have these files on that machine. I could:
- Set up the two sometimes-on machines and live with extended-delay sync.
- Set up each of the two sometimes-on machines to sync to a ‘relay’ directory on the 3rd machine.
- Set up all of the 3 machines to sync with the other 2.
Which design is likely to make me happiest over the long term?
Are there any particularly high areas of risk?
(I’m not concerned over simultaneous updates – just sync hazards.)
