I wonder if ifolder could be good for me. In fact, is it to be better than a cron script and rsync?
What worries me is that I have pretty large files (photo/video) and a slow (800Mb/s) upload bandwith on my main computer.
I have online (good bandwith) server with 1to HDD, so I could use it as archive for the most used files.
I just wonder how ifolder work on not 24/24 clients (the server is 24/24). Is it able to manage intelligently the bandwith, not stopping my network when uploading :-(.
I also wonder how ifolder can manage the thunderbird files. I use an imap server, but this don’t work for newsgroups, each time I change computer I have posts unread.
I have two main desktop, int wo towns, and a netbook when travelling. but only the main one have large HDD, so have have to keep most archioves on the server.

Not sure what you mean by “24/24 clients”, but I used it on systems that
weren’t always on, and it did the job.
But I’ve switched over to using Dropbox. iFolder can’t throttle itself
Some people have had issues with Dropbox security, so what I do to sync
my newsgroups configuration is sync filesystems set up with encfs (one
for the ~/.pan2 directory and one for the ~/News directory). That way if
the Dropbox account is compromised, there’s still a level of security.
That works pretty well - I just had to create a script to mount the
filesystems and launch my newsreader, cleaning things up after the
