  1. I second this feature request. I believe no other sync apps have this, and it would be a deal breaker for many willing to move away from public clouds, like Onedrive, which offer this feature.
  2. I don't know how this happened, but yesterday I installed version 1.4.91 beta, and, lo and behold, today my WD MyCloud EX2 was actually sleeping!!!
  3. I am using sync app to sync folders and files between my NAS (a My Cloud EX2) and my 1TB Onedrive account, using my TabletPC as "middleman". It so happens that, the ".sync" folder - which is a hidden folder in Windows - which is located in every synched folder, shows up in my Onedrive account as a normal/visible folder. Since it is not possible to hide the folder in Onedrive, I was wondering if it is possible to "centralize" the .sync folder (have one of them for all synched folders) and to place it outside the folders that are being synched, so that it does not show up every here and there.
  4. Just checking if there has been any improvement on this issue. I see that btsync app now has a unified UI throughout devices, so one should be able to control folder rescan in Linux directly in UI... is this right? Does it change anything with the sleeping issue?
  5. I would add to the list the WD MyCloud family: I am using BtSync app on the WD MyCloud EX2 (using the app for ARM), but I know of people using it on MyCloud and on MyCloud EX4. Install is pretty straightforward, the only issue is the limited options available on the WebGUI. Of course one could install the btsync.bin with the .config and tweak the config options there, but it would be great to have more - if not all - the options available on GUI. I say this because the WD MyCloud devices (at least my EX2 device, but others complain too) do not sleep when btsync is running... and perhaps the only way of allowing the device to sleep is to set a higher value for folder_rescan_interval (which one can set only on the .config file). Finally, it would be great if BitTorrent and WD get along and cook up an app specific for the devices MyCloud EX4 and EX2, whose dashboards now have a page dedicated to installing third party apps... but perhaps I am just dreaming...
  6. Oh, ok! Thanks! This means that the option "folder_rescan_interval" should be set for each folder... or is there a way to make it valid for all folders (like it is for desktop app)?
  7. Thank you again! I am just a novice to Debian, so I still find it difficult to understand everything... So, if I got it right, at the end of the day, I just need to execute the btsync.bin with the "--config btsync.config" bit at the end of the line (I just used the --dump-sample-config to get the config file and add the "folder_rescan_interval" setting). Two questions, if I may: - Should I keep the btsync.bin and btsync.config somewhere in my NAS (other than in a share, like Public share, but rather in a place like /usr/sbin)? - I do not get what you mean by: "I'd advise to config your shares directly in the config files, or you won't have one." Thank you so much again!
  8. { "device_name": "MyCloud", "listening_port" : 0, // 0 - randomize port "check_for_updates" : true, "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, "folder_rescan_interval" : 10800, "lan_encrypt_data" : false, "rate_limit_local_peers" : true, "lan_use_tcp" : true,//"use_relay_server" : false,//"use_tracker" : false,//"use_dht" : false,} So, I did a little study: The one above could be the btsync.config : And now for the command... well, I dunno... perhaps, assuming that both btsync.bin and btsync.config are located in \shares\Public\, something like: chmod +x /shares/Public/btsync /shares/Public/./btsync --config <btsync.config> Do you think this could work? Ok, spoke too soon... the User Guide is very helpful in dealing with this... I suggest everybody interested in this to read it...
  9. thanks for the replies. I think I got it... still I am wondering why just running btsync does not create automatically a .config file where one can set advanced parameters (or, even better, does not create a WebUI section where one can set these parameters)... I'll study this and see if I can write a .config and run btsync with it...
  10. I cannot find the .config file on my WD My Cloud... I just "run" btsync for ARM app from ssh access using WinSCP. Is it possible that it did not create a .config file? If it did, where should I possibly look for it?
  11. Could you please explain how I can set 12 hours rescan interval? I can do it on my desktop app, but I do not find the option on the ARM app...
  12. BTSYNC app works also on WD MyCloud and MyCloud EX4, just use the ARM version of the app. I also suggest to untar the file first on your PC or Mac, place it on the WD device, and then just run the "btsync" file from there.
  13. please add a feature to use BTSync only within a LAN, for sync between devices inside a LAN. At present it uses too much CPU (my NAS no longer sleeps and my TabletPC often overheats) and bandwidth...
