Initial Setup

Please make yourself aware of the Ultra.cc Fair Usage Policy.

Directly pointing Syncthing to sync your cloud storage will create extreme strain on your Slot's disk and could cause a 24-hour ban on accessing your cloud storage. Please Consider Rsync or Rclone with a reasonable limit set on speed.

Additionally, pointing to Syncthing to an active download directory, enabling the Watch for Changes feature, or setting a higher scan interval than the default value, can very quickly result in a FUP warning.

It is your responsibility to ensure usage is within acceptable limits. Ignorance is not an excuse.

Syncthing is a free, open-source, peer-to-peer file synchronization application that's written in Go. It synchronizes files between two or more computers securely and seamlessly.

For more information on this, please visit this link.

In this section, we'll be setting up Syncthing for the first time. For this guide, we'll assume you want to set up a folder on your Slot as your "dropbox," which will be synced automatically to your Windows PC.

Prerequisites

usbdocs@lw873:~$ mkdir Syncthing
usbdocs@lw873:~$ ls
bin  Downloads  files  media  openvpn  >Syncthing<  watch  www
usbdocs@lw873:~$ cd Syncthing/
usbdocs@lw873:~/Syncthing$ pwd
/home20/usbdocs/Syncthing

Please be aware that if you are on a Ultra.cc based server (name.server, no numbers) /home/username/Syncthing is required do not add the numbers.

Do not attempt to mount your rclone remote directly on your home directory. This will lead to instabilities. Instead, always create and use an empty folder within your home directory.
