  1. Right… For most people, "native" on MacOS would mean a desktop application, compiled to the correct architecture. If it's running translated/emulated, or it's not the desktop application, it wouldn't count as "native" in a strict sense of the word. Compare, would users of Outlook, Lightroom, Photoshop, or any other app be happy with the answer "just get the mobile app"? With all that said, Resilio Sync hasn't historically received updates very quickly, even when the architecture wasn't changed, so we might have to sit tight for a while for a native build.
  2. If all individual users in the Family versions sees all shares, then this is identical to simply using the same profile on all family devices, regardless who is using that device. What does the Family version offer over the Home Pro version?
  3. We use Resilio in the office, with a single server as the intersection point of all shared folders. On that server rclone runs once an hour to back up data to Backblaze B2. It's very efficient and quite cheap. So far our B2 bill is pretty consistently between $2 and $5/month. Let me know if you want example scripts and so on.
  4. I've noticed that Resilio now only runs on my Linux box while I'm actually SSH'd in. This seems to be a new development, and I'm not sure how it would have happened. Is this a setting that can be tweaked or is there something more funky going on?
  5. That's really odd. It doesn't have to be weirder than this: Just replace "Dropbox" with "Bittorrent Sync" and "account" with "identity". Edit: Also, thanks for listening to the feedback.
  6. Agreed. It's unsolicited, and it's therefore spam. If you're going to send third party promotions, please make damn sure that it is apparent when signing up and give the option to opt out, both when signing up and afterwards.
  7. It's pretty simple: it's counterintuitive that you have to create an identity and then get rid of that identity in favor of the one you wanted to use from the start. Look at what the user wants to achieve in this context: Start the newly installed program, enter a license and watch the correct folders appear. It took me some time to understand how to do this on a new machine as well and I'm a UX designer—I stare at weird design solutions all day. There is a problem, whether perceived or not. If in doubt, get some users in and do some usage testing.
  8. Thank you for making the 10 folder limit change. Although I'm paying for the pro version, and quite happily so, it makes it much easier to motivate people around me to get the application.
  9. ​Alright, will collect and send. Same identity, I have connected the share to a non-empty folder (i.e., the standard Pictures folder on a mac, which is mostly empty on a new machine, but not quite), but I have not touched anything on the machine where the folder was duplicated.
  10. I use an Ubuntu server as my main target for BTS shares. I recently started getting back damaged files from it. Amongst other things, I have a wallpaper share, and this is one of the wallpapers from there. As you can see, it's not feeling too well. A lot of the images look like this, but not all. Checking in on the shares, I now see that there are two "pictures" shares (which is where I keep the wallpapers). One is Pictures, and the others is Pictures (1). Looking into the web admin of BTS on the Ubuntu server, I see that the only share present is the Pictures (1). A couple of questions arises: what has happened, why has it happened, and what do I do about it? Will you be needing a log?
  11. There are some things with Bittorrent Sync 2.0 that are really weird, but I'm not exactly sure whether they are UX problems or programming errors. I've recently reinstalled OS X on my Macbook, and BTS becomes unresponsive and crashes a lot. Connecting and disconnecting folders will make the program crash, for example. That is a functional problem, I'm sure. However, it also does stuff like this: I.e., it uses all available processor cycles to do seemingly nothing. The status row is completely empty, nothing is being transferred. Today is day two since reinstalling OS X, and it still hasn't actually started to sync back the content in question, I think. I say "I think", because it's not really telling me what's going on. The event log shows that it indexed something half an our ago. The UI is locked up with the spinning ball of doom (does the UI run in the same thread as the rest of the program logic?). Overall, I feel like BTS 2.0 has some really great features, but it feels less reliable and it seems harder to understand what's going on than in 1.4, which obscures the great stuff that I'm sure is in there.
  12. Sometimes the contextual menu sync options disappear. In this case, I'm syncing the system standard "movies" folder from my mac from other devices, but I have it set on partial sync on the mac. From this folder in particular, the sync options disappear, while they appear for other partial syncs that I also have. How do I get them back for the movies folder? Movies: Another share:
  13. I'm not sure if this is the case, but sometimes when syncing stops and then starts (for any reason), it starts counting from 1% again, but then it's 1% of the remaining chunks, not 1% of the file.
