Syncing files in Seedbox and PC can make file management easier. All you have to do is add the file to a dedicated sync folder and it will make sure that the file is available on both your seedbox and your PC.
For this, we are going to use an application called Syncthing. All you have to do is configure it once.
We are assuming the Syncthing is installed on your seedbox and your PC.
Let us now begin the configuration.
How to use Syncthing to sync files between your device and seedbox
Step 1: Open the Syncthing application on your seedbox.
Step 2: Enter your FTP credentials
Step 3: Add a remote device, a.k.a your PC
Step 4: Open Syncthing on your device and find the device ID in the action menu.
A Pop-up will appear, copy the code written.
Step 5: Add in the details and click on save.
Step 6: Go to the Syncthing app on your device and accept the request.
A pop-up will appear, check the details, and click on the Save button.
Bueno, both your devices are connected now. It is time to create folders and actually starts syncing files.
Adding folders in Syncthing to sync files.
Step 1: Add a folder which you will use to sync files.
Step 2: Fill in all the information and click on save.
Step 3: Do the same for your PC. Make sure the folder ID is the same as the folder ID of the seedbox.
In this case, the folder ID is: mtzzv-ycan7
These folders are added but not shared by default. Therefore, you need to manually approve the folder to be shared.
Step 4: Click on the folder from your seedbox and click on the edit button.
Step 5: Go to the “Sharing tab” and check your device(PC) you want the folder to sync with. Click on save.
Step 6: Open Syncthing on your device(PC) and click on share.
The scanning process will start automatically.
Once it is complete then the sync has been done. Now all you have to do is add any file you want to sync in this folder. It doesn’t matter if it is from a PC or your seedbox.
