  1. Whoever signed off on this method of adding a new machine to an existing account should have their pen taken away. I've just tried to set up BTS on a new machine and it seems I've created a new ID. I have no idea how many different IDs I have across my machines, or how to find out. I've been trying to sell my colleagues on BTS for ages (it's a small IT company), but it's not easy as it's so confusing to set up, and this is a great example. The other major confusion is having "Manual Connection" seperate from the "Add folder" icon. Everyone I've helped set up BTS for has hit "Add folder" when they've already been sent a key. Please make the "Add folder" button take you to an option of "New Folder", or "Manual Connection". D
  2. Good work on the UI - it looks much better and seems better organised. One thing I would prefer is for the "Enter A Key" button to be obvious - possibly next to the "Add folder" button. Both functions are effectively adding a folder; it just depends on whether it was created locally or remotely. Also, the "Enter A Key" option is more likely to be used by people new to the program so it needs to be obvious. For example, yesterday I emailed a key to a friend and he couldn't work out what to do with it. Cheers Danny
  3. I know it's been mentioned a few times, but for BTS to be viable as my main sync tool for work and home I need to have the ability to share subfolders (nested shares?) without having to break the existing share, and then start sharing out subfolders individually. That's just not viable once I've shared a folder with a colleague and need to share a sub-folder with someone else. In order to stop it being a complete nightmare of dependancies, I'm imagining a way to do that by having BTSync: always create a unique key for every subfolder (whether requested or not).store each folder's subfolder structure with its key.have BTSync read a key, and then only sync the files within that folder, rather than syncing subfolders as well.BTSync syncs the highest level folder (files only) and then moves on to the next key, syncing that folders files.Then to share subfolders you'd just have to make the relevant subfolder key visible to the user as and when required. I'm sure it's more complicated than that but it works fine in my head!

  4. In the mean-time you could set up a script to zip the files with a password and split them into chunks. 7zip supports command line input. The password on the zip would be the security if anyone compromised the server. For an extra level of security you could have two servers and send even numbered chunks to one server and odd numbered chunks to the other. You'd obviously then need a scrip to unzip them at the other end if you wanted it automated but it'd be pretty simple. Not ideal but should work...
  5. Ah, ok. Thanks for the reply. How can I reset it so that those files are updated? I'd like any changes on the downstream end (i.e. my PC) to be overwritten ideally. Do I need to remove the folders, generate a new secret and re-add or is there another step required? Danny
  6. Hi All I'm finding BTSync really useful for a few different things. One use is to sync log files from a remote location to my PC. There are 30 log files, that loop through log00.csv to log30.csv, with a new file created each day (it's a terrible set-up for the log files but it's an industrial system and I can't change it). The process I've set up is: The log files are downloaded to a local PC. The log files are mirrored from the source folder to another folder using the robocopy /mir command. That mirrored folder is shared read-only by BTS. My PC syncs that folder, but it isn't syncing the files as they update. For example, one of the log files is now 12kB on the source PC but is 34kB (and older) on my PC. I've enabled debug logging and found this in the local PC's log: [2013-07-08 11:13:48] SyncFilesController: Update for invalidated file Logs\Log27.csv (R/O). Skipping Any ideas? TIA Danny
