A faster way to sync and transfer files

With BitTorrent Sync you can synchronize and share files between multiple computers. It uses P2P technology to provide file transfers at maximum speed and with unlimited storage.

BitTorrent Sync uses a synchronization method based on P2P that is innovative and simple. First, simply choose the folder to share. Then generate a secret key (a long alpha-numeric code). Write it down and forward it to the people you want to synchronize your files with. It's as simple as that.

There are 3 types of secret keys to be used according to your needs: keys with read and write access keys with read-only access and disposable keys to be used within 24 hours (read-only or read/write).Syncing occurs through a direct P2P connection, which ensures a very high transfer rate. Data security is ensured by an algorithm instead of 256-bit encryption.

Simple interface

The interface of BitTorrent Sync is organized in tabs:

Devices shows the computers with which you are synchronized Shared Folders shows the folders you have shared plus transfers in real time synchronizations, download and upload in progressHistory shows you a history of all transfersPreferences allows you to set BitTorrent Sync according to your needs. You can choose to be notified at the end of a download, whether to set a bandwidth limit for uploading and downloading files and you can choose to run the app automatically when your computer starts.

Using the program is easy, but there are hundreds of other more advanced features too long to list here You can see more in our video:

Very fast P2P file transfers

BitTorrent Sync does not rely on an external server and offers no public file sharing capabilities. These are the main differences between BitTorrent Sync and online storage services such as Dropbox or SkyDrive.

In addition, the use of P2P ensures that you can store and share potentially unlimited amounts of data and during our tests we were impressed by the performance and speed of synchronization of the app.

An app with great potential

BitTorrent Sync is an app with great potential. The use of P2P ensures optimum speed for synchronization and data protection is extremely high with a 256-bit algorithm.
