  1. if you edit the file locally the changes are propagated to remote clients, only remote clients will backup to the .SyncArchive folder (the local BTsync would have had to already had an copy of the file before it was locked Locked read only or RW by the program that is editing it) ​you need to use dropbox or other cloud based service if you wish to have full versioning (moved all my important stuff back to dropbox at the moment as bit hit or miss at the moment the way BTsync handles files)
  2. if i save/edit a file in this case keepass on a desktop pc and then look at the device copy, it seems to override the desktop copy,it even says so in the history <Phone> added file on desktop overriding the newer version, where as on desktop to desktop when i edit them it says <computer name> Updated file (it did it twice 2 added from phone as it showed in the desktop history is when it uploaded a old version from my phone when the desktop had newer version) but sometimes it says updated from <phone>, just when it says file added on desktop it wipes out the newer version from the desktop it has happened at least twice as i noticed when i saved it first time keepass complained about the file been different, second time i forgot to make a backup before messing with me phone (as i guessed it was the phone that was overwriting with older file) it may have been due to the clock on the desktop and laptop been about 20 secs behind trying to make it do it again now but its not wanting to it again (well i did but not same result the test file ended up in the synctrash folder i am guessing that one came from the mobile device) edit just watched it now it update the file from my phone that is 15mins old (the correct updated file is at 10:00, the old file that is on the phone 9:45 timestamp has overwritten the desktop copies, the newer files are in trash on the 2 desktops now)
  3. at the moment i would recommend not using live data that changes often with BTsync at the moment it's too easy for other BTsync to incorrectly sync and lose data (lucky enough BTsync had moved the newer version into trash), so went back to dropbox for that can't have keypas getting overwritten like that the mobile phone android app btsync is doing it as i can see from the history that the mobile phone app added the file and removed the newer one (that was lucky placed into trash) static data files for btsync is ok as that does not change main issue at the moment they are relying on date to check if it has been modified that can be a big issue, so i would stear clear of BTsync for live data or you mite lose it, until they get it sorted out (needs to ask really before it overwrites or deletes files or set one BTsync clients as the boss client like dropbox)
  4. please complete your words as well use a VPN next time (free one hotspot shield with ads) or should i say All the time when at a public Wifi hotspot (as they not be able to detect if your running bittorrent or be able to sniff any of your data like usernames and passwords) do make sure you exit BTsync before connecting to the wifi hotspot and fire up the VPN before you re open BTsync
  5. the remove button Needs a confirmation box only just noticed that the date format is hard coded for USA date format, Yes 2013/06/21 should be the way to do it (or at least poll the system for the date format (all programs do this as a basic thing surprised that this has not been done) be interesting if coder did the same thing (ish) with using System time/date instead of using UTC 0 offset when checking for file changes as that could be a issue when say i share a sync folder with someone in the USA with time zone of -7 hours as he would always have the newer file timewise even though the UK user has edited the file and saved it (not tested yet to see if that issue happens or not) the New 10 min delay would prevent the sync now as date mismatch would be more than 10 mins (again not tested) and i also agree there is a API in most OS's that can report when a files/folders has changed (does not use date or file size) as that should be used, not just rescan the folder when nothing has changed (as that brings up issues like TrueCrypt when the default is not to change the modification date and time and it makes very unnecessary disk wake ups) i am no programmer but there i know you can do this (XP/Vista or higher supports this) -- http://msdn.microsof...a363798(v=vs.85).aspx -- http://msdn.microsof...a364417(v=vs.85).aspx -- http://msdn.microsof...a365465(v=vs.85).aspx -- again i do not do programming i just do know that you can detect that a file or folder content has changed without having to do a file rescan (OSX already does it correctly in BT Sync, Linux/other would also have there own way of doing it as well)
  6. right now there seems to be a issue with the password generator (1.1.22), the first letter at the moment of posting is always a A when i press Generate on windows 7 x64 PC do you have a debug command i can use so i can send you something, i have not restarted the pc yet but i have closed and reopened BT sync and it does the same thing
  7. also is it 1000MB ? as its just says 1000 the android BT sync seems to work (i can now securely sync my keepass key file and password file now, as dropbox is insecure for that) another question as well the secret need a limit of 100 chars as once you get past that number it starts to become an issue with displaying it in the Advanced tab (i gave it a 1000 char one and it accepted it just as a test) the copy button works (it copies the 1000 chars) also when/If you do put a limit in Please Tell the user that you're going to be cutting it off (like Max Secret is 100/min 32, Next to where it says Generate new secret or shared secret) some sites and softwares cut off without warning user on top of that why do you limit it to uppercase on the Generate button and is there a upper limit that the max password should not pass, meaning do you do something different to the password after say 32/64 chars (like hash the password down so it can be used by your encryption) and the remove folder button needs a confirmation box at the moment it does it right away no questions asked
  8. when you dismount the volume it will sync changed parts of the TrueCrypt container (it does not need to Sync all of the container) when it next checks for changes (up to 600 seconds i changed mine to 60), you must have the preserve modified date stamp not ticked as BTsync does seems to depend on it (as TC container files do not change Size), so can't see how else it can detect if the file has changed (sure windows vista/7+ has a way of doing this) BTsync syncs the file in blocks of 4MB and the way TrueCrypt works save a 1MB file to and dismount it you find it will only sync 4-8MB ​i have been testing with a 512MB TC container (with preserve modified date stamp not ticked) and BTsync is working as intended (i am using 1.1.15) and its only Syncing the changed parts of the container file (when its dismounted, as your can't sync the file if its locked open as RW) to bad the sync chunks can't be smaller like 512KB as 4MB on a ADSL or mobile phone be bit tad large and slow
