  1. Update on issue, I did solve the issue, but it toke me some hunting, some tips: Make sure your windows share is writeable (hint, hint)Do not use a guest account on your SAMBA Windows Share, but create a users.Do create a user and find out useridAdd userID specifically to mount command.If all goes well, then it works. But beleive me, I had to puzzle for a few hours. If you need an example of my mnt command, just give me a shout.
  2. I have a raspberry pi, mounting a smb share on my synology nas. The mount takes place with all right (777) required on the /mnt/share/ And then I try to sync from a laptop to the share (in readonly mode). The mount is not empty, actually it already contains a full copy of what is going to be synced, if not it can delete stuff (I don't care). Now I get the error "don't have permissions to write to the selected folder." When I do the same thing, but now create a directory within the /mnt/share/syncdir/ Now it just syncs fine... What is going on here? Please explain this behaviour, so I understand what I am doing wrong. Thanks, #3
  3. I tried somthing similar... But I run into problems with the number of files... Windows (and my synology NAS) do both run into memory problems. I seems to me that there is a fundemantal problem that needs solving, when syncing large directory's with huge number of files... So i will keep waiting and hoping, with smaller directory's it works great btw!
  4. Great work... I've been pushing the btsync on my boxes to just test it and see the performance. I see the problems with NAS and low memory systems. The Windows boxes with plenty of memory do work reasonable good. Even though I see some files "hang" in sync, they keep syncing forever. Anyway I can deliver debug information?
  5. Thanks for pointing to the unofficial FAQ. I had missed that the answer was to be found there. At this time the NAS setup is not usable with large folders (>15GB and >10.000 files)... It works fine with small directory's, but with the larger directory's it just hogs the memory and stops responding.
  6. I have a very large document set (over 90GB). I use a two PC and two Synology NAS (one 256MB and 512MB). The files sync fine between the PC's, but with the NAS there is something weird going on. The seem to max out on memory after a little while. They slow down and do halt syncing, the interface become unresponsive. Is anyone else seeing this with their NAS setups?
  7. Did you give the feedback to the SynoCommunity as well? So they can fix the problem. For others wanting to test the packages, go and add the package repro to your synology. Go here for the instruction: http://www.synocommunity.com/faq Then you will find the btsync package under the other sources.
  8. Just to let you know, the BTsync package is now available from the SynoCommunity package repro. To install the BTSync package you need to add the SynoCommunity package location to your synology. Go here for the instruction: http://www.synocommunity.com/faq Then you will find the btsync package under the other sources.
  9. The package is available now for all Synology NAS boxes... To install the BTSync package you need to add the SynoCommunity package location to your synology. Go here for the instruction: http://www.synocommunity.com/faq Then you will find the btsync package under the other sources.
  10. There is a package now for all Synology drives... To install the BTSync package you need to add the SynoCommunity package location to your synology. Go here for the instruction: http://www.synocommunity.com/faq Then you will find the btsync package under the other sources.
  11. Because it's not mine. So I had to go over and setup the btsync. With #3 I mean the interface freezes if you have a NAS box that it memory and cpu starved. The process takes anywhere betwee 60-85MB, on a DS409 with only 256MB this is about 25% of the system memory you are eating up. When calling the webgui it just does not come back with a "full" GUI screen. Also it takes forever, I rather have a little information instead. I don't think "ajax" style GUI is the most important (it's handy though). But on a NAS box like this you want the relevant information (its slow enough), I rather have the information once a minute, then non at all. The app needs to be responsive I guess... Glad to hear you do not find these issues. I however do have these problems, it might just be that btsync is no very usable on a DS409 because of memory shortage and CPU lack, that's a shame IMHO since the box is only 3 years old and I bet its quite a common system out there.
  12. I started using the BTSync just last week. Just soon after the package was released by the team from SynoCommunity. They are on top releasing your product as an easy to install product. The package installed just fine, checking out the install code it seems it should just work fine for all Synology products, install fetches the right architecture (if available). After installing I ran over to another synology across town to go ahead and try it... it works great. After about 20sec installing the secret it was found and started synching... before I used a complex setup using a ftp account and syncing tools. This should simplify the secure backup scheme we have had in place for the last two years ;-) Anyway, so feedback to: 1. The synology DS409 is underpowered and memore starved (256MB) running a the Synology firmware (a debian linux system). Saying this I have noticed that because it's one code base for the sync and the gui serving it seems to be very slow. Now I realize this could be temperary, since it needs to calculate and sync a 30GB of data storage. So it wakes a while before it syncs up. 2. The webinterface The webinterface is showing some strange behaviours. When selecting a directory and then selecting a directory to sync. The icons get displaced. Now in the end it does select the correct directory, so its primarly "optical" GUI stuff, but it does mean the user needs to be a bit tech savvy. 3. Meaning of GUI items Now I am ok with a little information, however I don't need it to be a live update (on a webinterface). I rather have the NAS box calculating hashes and syncing out files. I do wonder how it detects changes, or, if there is even a way to force a sync action. 4. Connected or not? As a user I cannot find out what is going on with the connection. Is it syncing, is it in touch with the other deviced, is it... a little clue from the interface would really be usefull. 5. Keep resource use low... it seems to eat up all CPU available... not sure about memory. I see the NAS box slow down. To me this is fine, for a while, however I want BTsync to sit in the "background" and never use more then xx amount. So when I interact with the box it will be responsive, remember this is a real CPU & memory starved NAS box. Hope to see frequent and great releases.... Looking forward to future releases.

  13. Just confirmed btsync on my Synology DS409. It works fine. Now lets get it packaged and added to the install repository
