[Endgadget] Bittorrent working on a file sync app

So far, the premise is to offer identical copies of your files on all machines, all sounding pretty similar to how you use iCloud, Skydrive or Dropbox, although there would be no cloud-caching. According to GigaOM, files will be protected by 256-bit encryption, with native test apps for Mac, Windows and Linux (alongside NAS integration) already in testing.

Mods please remove if already posted.

This actually sounds pretty cool. Turn your home network into a storage clust/raid hybrid thing. Obvisously a better term will be needed, but I think it's a great idea.

Yep looking forward to using this. I currently use a sync program that don't work to well with networked drives. This maybe something we all need. I much rather use this than a cloud storage.

Idea: My N56U Asus Router has a system for downloading and torrenting to a connected drive even if you have turned off you computer. I wonder if you will be able to add router attached storage device to the sync circle? That could have some greate benefits. Especially if you can mark a particular folder as the "sync folder" and all its content would be sync'ed.

Sorry, but this seems absolutely worthless to me.

This just syncs your own machines, which means that these transactions are not going over internet links. Unless your WLAN connection is public or unsecured, there is no need to use bit-torrent instead of (lower overhead) FTP transfers.

There are already many robust and free apps to keep files synced between local PCs.

Mechtech you didn't read the article or missed it's jist. It's not just for local LAN file sync's. this is for Anywhere your devices are LAN & Internet. Synced similar to other services except no Cloud caching.

This basically turns your computer where your files are into the cloud server, but won't this only be as fast as your upload speed. If i have my video on Matt PC at home, and i want to sync that video from Matt PC at home to my laptop at a friend's house, i will only download the video as fast as i can upload the file from home. So if i upload at 4mbps at home, i will only download the file at 4mbps from the friend's house which is painfully slow unless you own fibre with symmetric upload and download cause no one else is going to be sharing your files and helping with upload. If i understand correctly then this is how it works, and will be pretty much useless in north america or places with painfully slow upload speed, which is why torrents have many seeders to combat this problem. So it would be faster to let this video upload to dropbox overnight and then download it from dropbox onto the laptop at the friend's taking advantage of dropbox's high upload speed.

Dude, thats the same speed you would be sync'ing to dropbox or wherever for the initial upload?
