  1. I have seen the documentation, but I could not rationalize the syntax for a file with no extension. I will play with your suggestions. I did not think to check if all those files had the same number of characters. Currently I am playing with touching the folders hard (renaming folders and naming them back). It seems to have cleared the errors. Time will tell if it sticks. Thanks.
  2. On one of my computers that I sync with, I an getting a few files that have no extension that are throwing a cannot sync error. I believe these to be a temp file and are just getting stuck in the system. How would one add files without extensions to the ignore list? Would the syntax be " ?. " Or is it something else. This computer also just had a fresh install of Sync but the folders and .sync folders were existing. Thanks
  3. Awwwwww... crap. I just upgraded my computers to 2.2 and was feeling all happy until I realized my home server was not liking the change. It is just running Win7 and I tried to do the workaround and start Sync with the Task Scheduler, but it does not seem to work. Back here I came looking for the answer and I got a little lost. Can someone walk me through the work around for 2.2? I think is has to do with the /config setup but I am not sure after that. Thanks
  4. I would like to say that I am quite pleased with the choice to modify the pricing structure. I am on board again.... Well done.
  5. +1 for a running as a service - or at least being able to access the GUI using this workaround... Our of curiosity, it has been over two and a half years since this feature was requested. Is there some reason that this has not been incorporated into the software?
  6. As I have stated before, I have no problem paying for a product as long as it is a fair price and fits my needs. However, paying for a "service" when all that is provided is a "program" rubs me the wrong way, especially when promises were broken. And I understand some need tech support. In my case, all I have done is pointed out and provided debugging information to help them better their product. I do not see why I need to pay yearly for that privilege..
  7. And they tell two friends, and they tell two friends and so on.... I'm with you. However, due to a lack of response or any new "promised change" it seems the BTSync staff has adopted the "bury your head in the sand" option of addressing the problem. "Don't worry, remain calm, it will blow over". A typical neophyte mentality of hiding from the problems instead of addressing it. I would like to hear from the staff as to their philosophy and any potential change they might make to the model. I even like to hear that it is what it is even after all the back lash. A thought for you software deve
  8. Well, it is what it is... I guess. Have not seen any updates from BTSync since the weak response from Mr.VP. I was content with continuing to run 1.4.111, but it appears (at least with one of the issues I was having) that updates (e.g. fixes) will only be coming to version 2.0 and higher. So if you are experiencing bugs now, you will probably continue to do so. That being said, if there are any future compatibility issues with 1.4.111 are we to be stuck with those and forced to the subscription model?
  9. At the moment, I am on the shelf regarding 2.0. With the limitations on the new version (especially the number of folders) I am still trying to figure out how make it work for my data structure. I am not sure I want to restructure all my data just to use a program. Anyway, that is another issue. So if the causes are not going to be fixed in the 1.4.111, what do I need to do to collect logs for the 1.4.111 and get it to the appropriate people?
  10. I have tried to include any and all temp files in my exclusions list. I thought that would have fixed it. Anyway, when is this fix coming out? It is destined only for the 2.0 crowd or will 1.4.111 get it as well?
  11. I have been reading all this with interest and a taste of distain. In general, I agree that BTSync has broken promises with the capabilities of its current release 2.0, but that is nothing new. Even in development many feature requests were promised and never delivered (even a year after the promise). The sad part is that this time BTSync has now taken away something people have become accustom to. This is typical marketing/political methodology to make people pay for things they previously had not instead of instilling a feeling of having to do without. Is it ethical? I guess that all depen

  13. Helen, This is somewhat true, I followed the links provided to submit my problem. After I received the initial response I posted here. By the time the confusion was worked out, I could no longer edit my posting. For all others, it should be noted that the Sync team has found the issue and the fix will be coming out in a future update. Thanks.
  14. It happened again. Created a PDF in one sync'd folder. Moved it to another sync'd folder and it ended up showing 0k. I found a copy in the .sync folder of the original location. Anyone?
  15. The clocks on all computers are set to auto sync to the same site. I thought there might have been an issue with one computer being on DSL instead of Cable, but it happens with files generated on that computer as well. It seems to happen when either saving, renaming, moving, or copy/pasting the files... File that are there seem to stay, but I am not 100% sure.
