  2. Hello, After three years is this bug back. I'm using version 2.6.1 (1319) on my two PC with Ubuntu and Synology NAS server. When I update actually synced files, all is OK. But when I add new file, synchronization with NAS is OK. Then when I start another computer after synchronization with 50% probability is size 0 Bytes. I tried update version on NAS to 2.6.2 but not success. Can you help me?

    Remotely Access Files Via Non-Sync System

    What's Clippers?

    Share Files to Individual without software

    I agree that this would be a powerful feature. I am currently migrating away from SugarSync (after 10+ years!) to Resilio. I think SugarSync has the advantage here. But the underlying P2P technology and architecture of Resilio I can see is better. Ultimately, the capacity to share a link and allow others to download without needing the software could be a really good Pro or Business feature. Yet, I can see the question: "Where do we host the file?" when there really is no cloud offering. Marty

  6. I have been using Sync Pro between my computer and phone with no issues. I just got a DS218j to store everything and want to continue using Sync mainly for the Selective Sync option. I installed Sync using the Armada38x package following these instructions: https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/206664850-Synology I am able to sync photos and other files just fine. But when a video is over 2Gb, syncing stops. The percentage left doesn't change and the upload and download speed go to 0. I know photo station uploader has a 2Gb limit but I thought Resilio Sync wouldn't. Is there a setting or something to configure I need to do? Is it setting on DSM, my router or Sync?

    Resilio Sync works in the background and syncs as soon the file got changed. (you save the file and release the lock on the file, that is you close the application with which you edited the file) On one computer (A) you have to start somehow, so you add a folder to Resilio Sync. This folder gets a unique link. On the other computers (B and C) you use this link to connect to this folder. Resilio Sync then downloads all files from A and stores them in the local folder you selected and thus you created a synced folder. There's a link which allows you to only read the files on e.g. B, but changes won't get synced. There's a link which allows you to read the files and also writes (changes) will get synced back to A and C (the link you should use). The safest method is to start by adding a filled folder on PC A. On PC B and C you use the Read Write link and select an empty local folder. The folders will get filled by Resilio Sync with the contents on PC A. If you know that the folders on PC A, B and C are 100% identical, then you can use the filled folders on all three machines, Resilio Sync won't have to transfer the files again in the first initial run. This speeds up the initial connection of the folders. There's a Pro version or Home. This version allows you to create a profile. On PC A, B and C you can set up the same profile. The advantage is, that if you add a new folder on PC A to Resilio Sync, this folder will be available on PC B and C automatically. So you don't have to work with the unique folder link any longer. There are also other additional features, not relevant now. If you don't care about real time synchronisation and you are o.k. with manual initiated syncing every now and then, then you can use FreeFileSync instead.

    I am still learning about syncing computers, but I can provide some assistance. If you have all 3 computers on the same Workgroup and can access them from each desktop using Explorer, then you can share the data using windows or a third party app such as FreeFileSync. Resilio Sync does work continuously in thebackground. When you set up the folder to sync, be sure to check Read and Write. I think you need to set up a sync link from computer 1 to computer 2, and a link from computer 1 to computer 3. As long as you only work on one computer at a time, a) a change to computer 1 will sync to computer 2 and 3; b) a change to computer 2 or 3 will sync with computer 1; c) and a change to computer 2 (or 3) will sync with computer 1, which should then sync back to computer 3 (or 2). Obviously I'd suggest testing this settup on a sample folder.

    I am a bit like William. I want to sync my business office desktop with my home office desktop and with my laptop. All I want is that when the contents of a particular folder are modified on one computer, that the same folder is updated on the other two computers. I have Sync installed, but I don't know that it is working. Does Sync work continuously in the background or only when the sync function is activated? Or should I be looking at FreeFileSync? Thank you.

    Supported NAS

    Did not find any mention, but do you plan to support newer QNAP ARM-based NAS? Upgraded NAS, lost Resilio .... I have one with with Annapurna Labs processor, but the package for the older x31 NAS does not install. I have a TS-332x. https://www.qnap.com/en/product/ts-332x I think it has a "newer" (not that A57 is all that new....) 64bit core compared to the older Annapurna Labs machines: [/proc] # cat cpuinfo processor : 0 model name : Annapurna Labs Alpine AL324 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPU @ 1.70GHz Features : fp asimd evtstrm aes pmull sha1 sha2 crc32 CPU implementer : 0x41 CPU architecture: 8 CPU variant : 0x1 CPU part : 0xd07 CPU revision : 3 processor : 1 model name : Annapurna Labs Alpine AL324 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPU @ 1.70GHz Features : fp asimd evtstrm aes pmull sha1 sha2 crc32 CPU implementer : 0x41 CPU architecture: 8 CPU variant : 0x1 CPU part : 0xd07 CPU revision : 3 processor : 2 model name : Annapurna Labs Alpine AL324 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPU @ 1.70GHz Features : fp asimd evtstrm aes pmull sha1 sha2 crc32 CPU implementer : 0x41 CPU architecture: 8 CPU variant : 0x1 CPU part : 0xd07 CPU revision : 3 processor : 3 model name : Annapurna Labs Alpine AL324 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPU @ 1.70GHz Features : fp asimd evtstrm aes pmull sha1 sha2 crc32 CPU implementer : 0x41 CPU architecture: 8 CPU variant : 0x1 CPU part : 0xd07 CPU revision : 3

    Sync moves altered or deleted files in the subfolder .sync/Archive https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/204754239-Using-Archive-for-file-versioning-and-restoring-deleted-files- So if a thief deletes all files and is connected to 'the network', your files will get moved to the Archive folder and you can restore them. 'The network': Resilio sync works both via your local network but also via internet. It has several methods to establish a connection. One way: Directly in the local network. Therefore both peers must have a direct connection. You should double check that this is the case for you. Just check the transfer speeds if they are higher than your internet connection, everything is fine. Second way: Directly through the internet. PC A is in New York, PC B in Sydney. They establish a direct connection through the internet. This depends on the firewall (router) settings, if this is possible. By default it's often not the case. Third way: Indirectly through a relay server. PC A connects to the Relay server via internet and sends the files to this server. PC B also connect to the relay server and receives the files from there. That's a way to circumvent closed firewalls (the normal case). if you only sync in your local network, you can disable the use of the relay server. If your local network is configured properly it should still work: https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/204754779-What-is-a-Relay-Server- How does Resilio Sync know what peers exist? Using a tracking server. You can tell Resilio Sync to not use a tracking server, but then you have to manually tell resilio sync the address of the other peers by specifying the predefined hosts (the local IP of the other computer) https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/205458125-Folder-Preferences

    Want to Sync, not share

    Frank, your explanation is mostly what I needed to know. Just to be clear -- Both computers logged on to my home network. I alter file A on computer 1. It immediately updates file A on computer 2. I then change rooms and switch to computer 2 where I further alter file A. It will immediately update file A on computer 1. I will never be working on both computers at the same time. So this works. In the unlikely event that one computer is stolen, and the thief were to delete all the files in the synced folder, I would be safe(not risk losing all the files in the linked folder) as long as the thief is not logged onto my network so that a sync cannot occur. Thanks for clearing this up for me. PS. And I am using FreeFileSync via USB memory, but was never able to get the two computers to see each other on the network and therefore unable to directly sync (mirror) using FreeFileSync.

    I don't understand what you intend to do. Because in the end you don't want to share 2 differen folders, but a single one, which is identical on both computers. Resilio Sync does not open the files and inspects what was changed. If you edit an jpg image on Computer A and Computer B at the same time, how should Resilio Sync know how to combine those two files and don't create a huge mess. That does not work! Never, nowhere! The 'before syncing' is not practical. Resilio Sync does sync the whole time. So you have one folder, which is both on PC A and PC B and is identical! That's why it's one folder, not two! You edit some files in it on PC A, the changes will get synced to B. You edit the file on B, the changes will get synced to A. You edit the same file on both at the same time, the file with the latest time stamp will get synced, so the changes on one of these computers will be lost. You edit file a) on PC A, file b) on PC B and save it, then file a) will get synced to PC B and file b) will get synced to PC A, all changes are synced. If you want to work on a single document, at the same time, on two computers, then you have to use a collaborative software. For text documents, spreadsheets, ... you could use Collabora Online, which is LibreOffice in a browser. But you can't do this with every file type and you can't do this with normal software. The software has to run on some kind of server and has to have the ability built-in. Edit: If you want to keep a folder on PC A and a folder on PC B in sync in the future, but right now they have different contents, then use something like FreeFileSync to get them in sync and afterwards use Resilio Sync for future live syncing.
  14. Thanks a lot Resilio. Support just provided me with a new .exe file (version 2.6.10039), which fixes the problem So if someone else has the same issue, contact support - well, assuming the official download exe will include those fixes soon, too. Very impressed by your service, especially considering I'm using the free version only. Kudos! Will recommend Resilio where I can. Cheers!
  15. Hi Alex, thanks a lot for your message. Will do so.
  16. @Til @happy.cze please write short message to support with the link to this topic. you will get a link to uploader where you will be able to send dumps.
  17. This bug appears to be introduced after the 2.5.13 release and is still frequently occurring for 2.6.2. It is a major issue and so far I have not seen any acknowledgement from Resilio on resolving this new bug. I would have treated this as a high priority bug when first reported 3 months ago. This is happening so frequently on all my setups and for others, I question how this didn't get noticed and resolved months ago. Version 2.6.2 cleared up this very frequent bug on my Win10 machine. I was thinking you might have actually fixed the bug and was so happy. Until... Version 2.6.2. just showed the issue for my WHS2011 where I don't recall seeing this bug previously on that machine in 2.6.0 or 2.6.1. Version 2.6.2, no change on QNAP NAS that doesn't seem to finish the "Loading..." so I don't even know which 6 files are stuck. Clearly, the error message about no source being online for too long is wildly wrong and lacks basic logic checks as this shows even with all peers online. At the very least, improve the error message to reflect what the actual error is. Please fix this. At the very least, communicate with us as there are many of us who are looking at alternatives because this issue is so annoying and going on for so long without any feedback from Resilio.
  18. It seems Sync has issues with .crdownload files. Today I had to move a 2GB drive to a 2.5GB drive so I removed the share from Sync before moving the data. The share was supposedly synced at that point so the expectation is that after re-adding it back and it indexing, they should have been in sync. However, after removing the share, moving the data and adding back the share, I have 22 conflicts, all for .crdownload files that don't exist. I get the error "These cannot be downloaded as there are no source peers online for too long a time". All these files were transient and long ago removed, and on top of that, not ever in the folder that Sync is reporting. I have no idea where this old information is coming from, so there is obviously one or more bugs about failing to clean up properly, and failing to detect/index properly. A search on both computers for "*.crdownload" turned up no results. I've just added .crdownload to my IgnoreList, so hopefully I'll avoid these bugs in the future.
  19. I have the same problem, sync keeps crashing on one of my PCs But i dont get nothing more than general dialog saying "Cannot generate crash dump, reason unknown..."
  20. Hi there, I'm using the free version of resilio sync to sync two pcs at home, both Windows 10. It worked great for about a week. Now it crashes about 10-20 seconds after opening it on one of the computers. I've tried uninstall-windows restart-reinstall, which didn't work. Any other ideas? Does it help hitting "send bug report to developers" ten times before I give up or is this just annoying? Was going to attach a dmp file to this post but it's +3MB (only 0.5 allowed). Any ideas or recommended procedures? Thanks! Btw, posts from people having similar problems seem quite a while ago - reinstalling the program seemed to have worked for them. Cheers, Til

    Want to Sync, not share

    The link shows me how to share 1 folder with 2 computers, but I want to share 2 folders with 2 computers. If I link as shown and change the contents of the folder on computer 1, it will sync and update the contents of the folder on computer 2. This would cause the loss of all the changes that were made on computer 2 before syncing. I want information that was changed on each computer to be synced to the other computer so I wind up with 2 identical folders.

    Latest Desktop Build 2.6.2

    1. Could you please send logs & all '*.dmp' files from storage folder to support? 2. Could please try to add directory as 'Standard' folder? (Not 'Advanced' one which is used by default in Pro version)
  25. I'm not a fan of this and would like to disable the creation of that shared folder as I don't use it.
