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.

User reviews of BotSync SSH 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.

Multiple servers/folders Would like the possibility to sync several folders with several servers. Please fix?

THE only good rsync for Android You would think, since Android is based on Linux, that the core of common Linux tools would be natively available. This app gives you handy, secure, easy access to your files while on the road. Many thanks for a great app!

Nope Installed. Found that it doesn't support SSH using private key authentication. Found that it has only "upload" and "download" options...not "sync." Uninstalled.

Needs auto-start, sync in background and actually sync and not copy every all files every time Possibly care about "sync enabled" setting? Also: multiple dirs/sync jobs.
