They say that “necessity is the mother of invention”, well necessity and sometimes an itch to do the same yourself. This is how TorpedoSync came about, from the use of other software to sync “My Documents” across my machines and finding them troubling. Hence the immortal cry “I can do better!”.
I start out by using bitsync which then became resilio sync (a free-mium product) which I liked at first but then became a real memory and disk space hog.
After searching a lot, I came across syncthing which is open source and written in go, which I found seemed to be connecting to the internet and was not as nice to use as resilio.
At this point I gave up and decided to write my own.
