BotSync SSH SFTP

BotSync SSH SFTP


BotSync periodically synchronizes files with a remote SSH SFTP server, over the wifi or cell network. As new files/directories are created, BotSync will recursively download them to the phone, or upload them to the server (like rsync). Use it to transfer new content securely, wirelessly, and automatically.

Why pay for Dropbox when you can run your own private cloud? BotSync works with opensshd - no inefficient, expensive, or potentially-insecure server SW required.

BotSync transfers about 4X faster than AndFTP SFTP.

Nice, but needs multiple directories/folders, bi-directional sync, and per-directory scheduling (some might need sync once a week, others every 15 minutes). Very fast! EVO 2.2

This is exactly what I wanted. It did take a little while to realize I needed to add full paths to the source and destination folder like /mnt/sdcard/dcim for my pictures. It will sync in either direction.

I'd love to get this, even if the other way round (phone to pc) will be very useful for photos. The only problem is that I can't find it on the market.

Works great, but ... Only one folder pair? I have multiple folders that I would like to sync, but this app only supports one! I'm still shopping for a solution, but this works great if you just sync all.

One major flaw For a long time I would leave this running on a cycle to update php and js on a devel server while I edited files and tested it. The problem is that when a file is shortened it leaves the tail of the file on the server, breaking the code file. Also, it does not delete files on the server. Basically, it needs some options or a way to edit the rsync command line parameters. This has become a major problem, and I have switched to using a different app for rsync to the remote server.

Good app, lack some features I'm using for a day. It works well on SFTP sync. I moved to this app after the FolderSync app stopped syncing over SFTP. Although the most missing thing for me is the schedule and the filter options. Maybe making it a Tasker plugin can add the schedule feature at least. Thanks for the great effort! I'll keep using it over the FolderSync.
