BitTorrent Sync 2.0 Brings Pro Version, Free 30-Day Trial

We’ve looked at BitTorrent Sync before as an alternative to Dropbox for sharing large files across your devices. Now, the service has updated to version 2.0 and with it comes a new Pro tier.

The new Pro tier for BitTorrent Sync costs $US40/year, which falls roughly in line with other services like Dropbox or Google Drive (depending on your storage needs, of course, though Sync has no limits). With the Pro version you can make all your files accessible on any device, while only selectively syncing them. You also get improved access controls for sharing files.

Free users can still use the service for up to 10 folders. Because Sync uses peer-to-peer technology for its transfers, there’s no limit to the size or speed of the files you’re allowed to sync. You can also install Sync on NAS systems so you can access your own personal server from anywhere.
