  1. Just got this email addressed to the unique address only used to sign up for this forum.
    Some data removed for security.

    Dropbox and one other vendor got hacked so I dropped those address, a nice advantage to owning multiple domain names
    and doing my own hosting is the ability to give each site a unique name to track situations like this.

  2. The gui screen comes up but sync says (not responding) in the title bar, this is from the log.
    After 30 seconds or so the not responding message goes away and I see '1 of 1' or how ever many peers that folder has.
    If I click on a folder the message comes back but then after 30+ seconds I do see the folder's contents and the error goes away again.
    This has been working fine for 3 or 4 months now.

  3. Can't read the entire error message because it won't fit on the screen but it looks like sync is looking for a folder I removed a few days ago.

    I took a PC (acer 522) out of service and replaced it, so peers online shows 1 of 2 on each PC. I think I read that the old PC will drop off after 7 days. Is sync still looking for the old folder on the missing PC?

    My peer list for folder drivers says 1667 files are coming from the far end (ind-nas) but the status column of the GUI on this end is blank and progress shows 0% - a few seconds.

    The status bar in the icon tray says nothing is being sent.








  4. I changed one PC running sync that keep my 2 NAS drives synched.

    At 1000 Tuesday folder 1 had 2972 files left, by 1530 2580 and is at 2564 now  (2345 Wed).

    Folder 2 was 11,689 at 1000 and 1530, by 1100 Wed is was 9625, now at it's 9535.

    Other folders are still the same size

    How does sync decide which files get sent first?




  5. One folder on PC acer says peer asus is offline, but at the same time says it is downloading 14 files from a different folder on asus.

    Asus agrees that acer is offline for the 1st folder but is sending files to the other folder to acer.


    Another PC has 2 folders synched with 2 other PCs, one folder says 1 of 2 peers are online, the other folder says 2 of 2 are online.

    When I click on options / help / help center I get this error on multiple PCs.

    The request could not be satisfied.
    Bad request.

  6. I figured out what was happening. I did an install on a new PC and it worked fine, then it dawned on me that the failed installs were on PCs with 1.3.109, which was still working almost flawlessly (an occasional name.conflict file was all I had to complain about).

    I forgot you suggested to remove the old version, so I was installing over it. I guess you should change my 'advanced member' title to 'Mr. Moron'.

    I did another PC just now with 1.3.109 and the same thing happened, no icon or program after the first install, so I installed a second time and it came up.

    Do you still need my log files?

    I bought a pro license but have not installed it yet because Sync does everything I need.

    Have you guys considered a VPN product? You already have the tunnel part done.


  7. I installed of 2.3.3 on 2 PCs today, the program did not show up in the program list nor did it put an icon on the desktop as the option said it would.

    I was logged in as a standard user on both. I logged in as an admin and ran the install, then logged into the standard account and reinstalled, that time it took. Anyone else seen this?
