BitTorrent Sync free tool for keeping files in sync

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, August 1, 2013

A free new tool for keeping your files in sync.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   If you have photos, videos, music or other documents on a desktop computer and want to keep them in sync with what you have on a notebook…BitTorrent Sync is now out in beta and it is free.   It also works with Android devices and soon…iOS.   Senior Director of Product Management Brett Nishi says BitTorrent Sync is designed to bypass the cloud….so there are no limits to storage….

“It’s also, often times,  much faster because you’re going point to point.  So there’s no, we like to say, there’s no pit stop in the cloud.  And so, with nothing stored anywhere else, there’s less friction in terms of transferring and accessing and syncing.”

Because your files aren’t being stored anywhere else but on your own computers and devices,  there’s less to be worried about in terms of security as well.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
