This version includes the following changes - Uses bind mounts instead of symlinks - Flock is used to handle the multiple syncs happening together - Backups are compressed using zstd - The backup process is optimized and uses link-dest flag to decrease the size of backups
Anything-sync-daemon (asd) is a tiny pseudo-daemon designed to manage user defined dirs in tmpfs and to periodically sync back to the physical disc (HDD/SSD). This is accomplished via a symlinking step and an innovative use of rsync to maintain back-up and synchronization between the two. One of the major design goals of asd is a completely transparent user experience.
