  1. Hi, I have a lot of files shared by btsync between my machines and I also installed btsync on my android. I did activate the option not to automatically sync, Now sometime I want to look at a file and I download it manually. After watching it, I don't need it anymore on my phone so I'd like to delete it. What happens then? will the file be deleted locally only because autosync is off? what happens if I ever turn autosync on? How do I sync it in case I modified it? Thanks and cheers Junge
  2. I had a similar problem when syncing my win and linux machines. My linux machine is not using utf-8 but iso8859-15. the folders where synced before using btsync. since btsync can only handle utf-8 filenames it couldn't sync files with special characters from my linux machine - like üöäéèê. so it synced the files from win to linux. this led to the fact that I had those files twice on linux. tüst.txt and something like tüst.txt e.g. the funny thing is that btsync was aware of those files on linux but couldn't sync them. It showed me +2000 more files and 1.5 GB more on linux than on windows - it
  3. Thank you for the answer. Still I think this is bug. BTSync shouldn't just assume something. It should read the locales like every other program and afterwards KNOW which character set is beeing used. So far the system works quite fine with iso8859-15. afaik Windows uses Win-1252 which is iso8859-something anyway. There won't be any filenames windows can't handle. Sooo... any other suggestions? Thank you
  4. Hi guys I installed btsync on 3 machines: 2 win and 1 linux machine. the sync between the win machines works fine. but the sync to the linux machines causes problems. before I startet the sync via btsync I manually synced with a windows programm over samba, so all the files were identical. now after starting btsync all files that had special characters like german umlauts (üöä) or french accents (éèê) caused problems. btsync made an extra copy of these files on my linux machine. This led to the fact that all files with special characters in their names that exististed before I started the init
