Save internet bandwidth by syncing across network

I’m often in countries where internet bandwidth is expensive and slow. It would be nice to be able to sync already downloaded Google Drive files across the network instead of downloading from Google Drive. Is this sort of thing possible with odrive?

Hi @danielfredley,
odrive doesn’t offer peer-to-peer file transfer.

In your use case, do you have multiple accessible machines on the local network that have synced files down? Would the intent be to transfer the files over the local area network from one machine to another?

Correct. I would like all of my odrive files mirrored on another computer accessible on the same network. So if I have a 1GB video file downloaded to one laptop I could automatically sync it to another computer’s odrive without having to download the 1 GB file again.
