  1. I would pay a one time fee or for each mayor version, but I can imagine my descendants trying to figure out how many yearly suscriptions I made and how to cancel them after I die. :lol:  No, I won't be get into another suscription, sorry.

     

    I'm not much affected by the folder limit as I only use 4 but it's not nice to lie to the customers. Baaad boys.


  2. I'm syncing the camera album. There are 100 files right now, 5 of which are videos. I can reach to the backup status screen before it crashes and it is in the process of indexing. It shows around 100MB in 70 files (indexing) sometimes more sometimes less. I'm a bit tight on internal memory space (~350MB free) Maybe it has something to do with the crash.


  3. Hi,

     

    I recently started to not be able to use BTSync because it closes when it is about to start syncing. It used to work fine. I'm using it on a Nokia Lumia 520 with WP 8.

    Could it be that uses all RAM or something similar? I think it could be that because now it has to sync some new video files that weren't there before.

    Any idea?

     

    Thanks!


  4. I'm having this problem for a long time; sometimes I can get to fix it but it comes back after some time. Now I can't find any .!Sync, .SyncTemp, .SyncPart, or .SyncOLD files. I removed sync folders on both sides and even deleted synced folders. Added sync folders again and... after indexing and transfers, the amount of unsynced data changed but it still stucks there, with some amount of that left to upload/download.

     

    I'm using 1.2.73 on every PC (win7 and win 8.1 64 bits)

     

    The most problematic folders are the ones that host my work files which change very frequently.


  5. I'm having some issues with temporary files. Sync leaves .!sync files stuck when it's trying to copy temporary lock files generated by AutoCAD when opening a drawing. When you open a dwg file with AutoCAD it generates 2 dwl files to avoid the first file to be edited at the same time by another person. BT sync tends to leave a !sync file for those files that are not erased by the user but just disappear when closing the main file.

    I experienced the same behaviour with other temporary files from other programs.

     

    As a workaround could a rule be established to avoid those files? Maybe in syncignore?


  6. The .!sync file belong to btsync, so indeed some program ;)

    Anyway those .!sync file represents files being synced, but not completed yet.

    What I meant is that btsync was trying to copy a temporary file made by another program. I work with a render engine that creates big files and updates them frequently. There were some *.part.!sync (made by the render engine when creating those big files but are erased or renamed when the copy is finished) and some *.sv$.!sync (security temporary file made probably by AutoCAD for recover).

    My intention was to point out some possible error prone situations. (I wasn't very clear on that, I guess)

    So what does it mean when sync is completed and an !sync file is still there in the target folder?

    That's the point. Probably the files disappeared before they could be fully synced and instead of getting deleted also they just got stuck there.


  7. In my case it's Windows-Windows so I looked for something different and found some .!sync files in one of the computers. Deleted them but nothing seemed to change so I deleted the folder and re-created the share to force re-indexing everything. Now it looks good and synced on both sides and I'm happy again. :)

    The !sync files seemed related to some temporary files that some programs create when working with them.


  8. I'm having a similar issue here. Windows 7 on one side, W8 on the other. Read only 220GB share from 7 to 8. On 8 it shows synced while on 7 there are 47.2MB left to upload.

    As you I tried to remove shared folders from sync and re-add and also deleting all files from W8 and re-sync, with the exact same result. Maybe it's just one conflicting file...

    In my case I don't have ignored files.


  9. Hi,

    I'm having a problem with 1.1.27.

    I have a rig of 4 PCs. Main one (A) is always on and has windows 7 ultimate 64bits, B has also windows 7 Ultimate 64bits, C has windows 8 Pro 64bits and D is a laptop with windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits.

    I was using 1.1.15 without problems but decided to update to 1.1.25 one morning. I left all the computers indexing 3 different jobs some time, but had to go so I turned everything off. When I came back in the evening I started everything again but autoupdate was launched to 1.1.27. So I let every comp autoupdate before everything was indexed with the previous version.

    Now I have some discrepancies between different computers. I have 3 main jobs:

    1.- Full sync, 17.3GB in 9765 files

    2.- Read only to B and C and full sync to D, 34.9GB in 15027 files

    3.- Read only to B and C and full sync to D, 215.5GB in 50985 files

    After finishing indexing some shares show that have some files left on some computers but does not transfer any file showing in history that some files are skipped because of bad time stamp.

    Job 1 is synced between A and B and between C and D but the latter have less files synced than the former and show that A and B have to send files to C and D. Again there are no files being transferred.

    I tried removing the folder from some computers and adding it again but, after indexing, the result was exactly the same (with the same number of files).

    Any advice?

    Thanks.

    Edit: Well, I just removed the conclicting folders and files and left just the original ones. Added the folders again, indexed, and synced everything correctly. I guess that double update isn't recommended.


  10. If i'm understanding this right the issue isn't with Scanning a QR code. It seems the UI is too large for smaller screened phones. DonCamilo it might help to attach a screen shot to show the Issue with the UI both of my everyday phones (Nexus 4 and Droid X2) have 4in+ Screens I'll try to dig out my old Motorolla Back Flip and see if i can reproduce the issue.

    This is what I see when I try to add a sync on a Samsung Galaxy Y:

    ScreenShot.png

    I cannot scroll or resize the screen.

    I can scan the code when making a backup although the image comes rotated and a bit scaled.

    I forgot to say I'm using 1.1.15


  11. Hi, I've got a problem with latest mobile app:

    I've got a phone with small screen (3") and when I try to setup a sync I have to 1. Choose the folder and then 2. Scan QR code which I cannot do because I can't see any button to do it. I only get OK button which asks me to scan a QR code.

    Any one else?

    It would be great to be able to backup several folders to the same location too. (but that's not a problem, just a wish)

    Thanks


  12. My wish:

    It would be nice to have a bit more control when setting up a sync. Now we can:

    1.- Merge files from both locations (which is default secret behaviour now)

    2.- Add origin files to destination folder and keep those in sync + keep previously existing files in destination folder just there (read only secret behaviour)

    I would like to have also these options for first time behaviour:

    3.- Read only + delete content in destination if doesn't exist in origin (perfect mirror). It has happened to me that in device B I have an old backup of a folder in device A with some discrepancies, some non deleted files and some changed ones. Read only mode was not what I wanted because I ended up with some unwanted old data inbetween synced files. I had to completely delete destination folder and start a fresh sync. In fact this only affects the first time when you setup the sync. Once synced, it works just like read only mode.

    Maybe a #4.- Replace all content in destination with content from origin. This would just wipe everything out in destination without making any comparison. The difference with previous one would be that it doesn't waste time checking for coincident files. Just delete and sync.

    I know I could just delete and setup a read only sync but maybe this could save some time.
