Automatically mirror folder from seedbox to local machine without deleting local files when they are deleted on the seedbox

Posted October 21st, 2018    128   1  

Im currently trying to automatically setup a way to download files from my "TV" folder on the seedbox to my TV folder on my local machine.

I already tried out resilio sync but the problem is that resilio sync deletes files from my local machine if they are deleted on the seedbox. Apparently there is no way to turn this off.

I also got syncthing to work and via the "ignore deletes" option managed to get it not to delete files when they are deleted on my seedbox. Unfortunately syncthing is painfully slow for or doesnt sync at all.

Im currently trying to get lftp to work so that it automatically mirrors the specified folders but I just wanted to ask whether anyone has had the same problem and could provide an easy fix for me.

I actually want to do the exact same thing as you and I've just started to look into Resilio for that very purpose. I have a thinking to solve this but I don't know if it'll work.

Can you add the individual sync folders by TV Show name? That way, say Gotham Season 01, is finished airing. All you have to do is delete the sync folder from Resilio in your seedbox so you can delete the files off your seedbox.
