  1. I have to say that I don't really get the subscription thing... If a service hosts data I completely understand that I have to pay a subscription fee but for a software that runs on my machines and where I do provide all the storage and the bandwidth and I have to do all the configuration, I do not want to pay a subscription fee.

    For software I pay one time and then again for a new major update, subscriptions are for service or rent of server capacity/bandwidth...

  2. I have problems with btsync 1.4.91/92 on my NAS (MyBook Live)


    The NAS recently crashed and now it is up and running, the dtaa partition that also houses the btsync binary and data folder was not harmed.


    After the crash I upgraded to 1.4.91 and since then btsync finds the other clients but does not download. I deleted everything and readded all the folders, with no success. I added by either using the new sharing feature or by adding the folder and then changing the secret to the ones from the clients.


    The weird thing is that once I add a folder that is not yet existing on my NAS everything works perfectly.

     I also tried adding as a new/empty folder, then moving the data into the empty folder and restarting btsyn, which makes btsync again stopping to sync...



    clients are still running 1.4.83 so I tried to revert to 1.4.83 on the NAS, which crashed, so I went back to 1.4.92 and suddenly one of the "not empty" folders started syncing just to stop again a minute later with lots of errors like: "LoadTorrent: number of pieces in torrent file doesn't match for file ..."


  3. Is there a way to decrease the logging level or disable logging completely? Moving the logfile to /var/log/ would help me as well.


    My problem:

    I am running btsync on a Western Digital MyBook Live NAS and the NAS won't enter sleepmode when btsync is running.


    I think the logfile might be the problem as it is logging stuff constantly, thus accesing the harddisk. The MyBooks own logfiles (it is running debian) are located in /var/log/ which is located on a ram-disk, not the HDD, in order to not wake the MyBook up all the time.


    If this is really it and there is a way to disable or move the logfile would make me very happy ;)

  4. I use btsync on a MyBook Live with 3TB. Would be the perfect Dropbox replacement if btsync would actually let it go to sleep mode...

    Hope that will work in a future version. Then I plan to buy another 3TB MBL and place it at my mother's house and sync them. So we would both have offsite-backups.

  5. I had the same proble. btsync is running as root so every file it syncs is owned by root.

    An easy way to have btsync running as your user:

    - install btsync from this ppa: https://launchpad.net/~tuxpoldo/+archive/btsync there is a desktop and a server version

    A) the desktop version should run as your user right away

    B) if you install the desktop version, you can modify the config file to have the daemon running as your user. How that is done is explained in the example files.

    there are also two forum threads linked on the PPA page that will give further information.

    hope this helps
