How to use Btsync with your Seedbox?



Btsync is one of those applications that can help you create your own environment of a file-sharing system. Your seedbox is a remote server and your mobile phone and desktop or tablet are remote devices.

If you want to transfer a single file, then the norm is to establish an FTP connection, find the file your want to transfer, and download it to your device, manually. With Btsync, your headache of transfer is eliminated by using synchronization of folders.

All you have to do is set up a folder and Btsync will synchronize all the files in that folder to all your device for you.
