  1. yes, as long as your phone and laptop are in the same local network, just make sure you enable "Search LAN" for the folders.
  2. You can change device name by accessing its WebUI page. or you can write your own config file and run rslsync with --config. Start from ./rslsync --dump-sample-config
  3. I posted 2 similar posts 2 years ago, 1 question: and 1 feature request: No replies from Resilio Sync. I have rated Resilio Sync's support team 0-star ever since.
  4. Resilio Sync for Linux is definitely portable, you don't need root/sudo to run rsl, normal user can use crontab -e (as normal user) to start it with custom config. Not sure if it works in Windows 10's WSL, you might want to give it a try.
  5. The computer's spec is more than enough if you run headless Linux (i.e., don't install/run X server/Desktop environment). I would recommend using popular distros such as Debian (choose tiny/small CD) or Ubuntu (server), because the bigger user base, the more chance you'll get support in case you have any issues.
  6. Just run 2 instances using different users user1: rslsync --config user1_config_file user2: rslsync --config user2_config_file make sure the 2 config files using different port/storage_path/pid, etc. you can start with rslsync --dump-sample-config > user_config_file then modify user_config_file
  7. Not being able to totally turn OFF logs also bugs me. There's also a HUGE sync.log besides ShellExtIO.log. The user normally does not read these log files. I managed to stop these log files from recreating: On Windows 10 system, exit Resilio Sync, go to "AppData/Roaming/BitTorrent Sync" folder, delete ShellExtIO.log and sync.log, create 2 folders with the exact same names (ShellExtIO.log and sync.log), right click on them and go to Properties/Security, enable all "Deny" permissions for all user/group. On Linux system, go to the main .sync folder: rm sync.log; ln -sf /dev/null sync.log
  8. I have 2 sync clients on RPI2b and RPI3b+, they are both running armhf binaries on Raspbian 9 (stretch).
  9. If you have Pro license, change the server's folder type to "Selective Sync", then you can use "remove from this device" on the server. If you use Sync Free edition, on your PC, create a new folder outside of Sync folder, move whatever files you want to delete on your server to the new folder, these files will be deleted on the server side and saved in the new folder on the PC side.
  10. I had a similar issue with Sync 2.6.0 on Android 7.0, see this post: @darpas: it seems working fine for me with the disconnect-then-reconnect solution.
  11. Changed the topic to [resolved] with a workaround: disconnect/reconnect with "Simple mode" disabled. The cause of this problem is still a mystery to me. I hope I won't see it in the future with new versions of Sync.
  12. Hello, I did what you suggest. If "Simple mode" is enabled, reconnecting the share created a new share folder with "(1)" appended (because the old share folder already existed and I couldn't rename the share name), and Sync had to re-download files under the new folder... which is not very good. I had to disable "Simple mode" before reconnect to get a chance to use old share name/folder, this also resulted in a long time "indexing"... well, at least it didn't re-download 30GB files.
  13. Thanks for the reply. However, I am wondering why the same paths worked before with Sync 2.5.3(?) (the version before 2.6.0) but don't with 2.6.0... And can you be more specific about "remove the share from Sync and add it back"? These folders are shared with my Home Pro Sync desktops, the phone is a linked device and it got these folders automatically (not from shared links), I don't know how to remove these folders and am afraid of doing something wrong to disturb the desktops. Thanks.
  14. Hello, My Android 7.0 phone got update today from Google Play Store and now it's running Sync 2.6.0 (7871) I have 2 connected folders and now they both show "Can't open the destination folder". The destination folders are on my phone's external SD card and I am pretty sure Sync 2.5.x didn't have this problem (I granted SD card access). The SD card is mounted correctly and I can see all synced files from a FileManager app. I did: 1. reboot the phone 2. check System Settings / App permissions, and Sync 2.6.0 does have "Storage" permission. I suspect that Sync 2.6.0 somehow lost SD card access permission ... is there any way for Sync 2.6.0 to check/ask for SD card access again? or any ideas to fix this issue? Thanks.
