  1. This is sync.com, a zero-knowledge cloud service from Canada (and I am using it currently). It has nothing to do with Resilio Sync, note that it has a totally different logo. People that chose Resilio Sync because they want to keep their data on their own storage (instead of cloud storage on the internet), will unlikely want to switch to sync.com.
  2. "Resilio Sync was awesome. " FTFY, because that's more suitable for a eulogy.
  3. Did you read this? How to Back up data (Android only) – Sync (resilio.com)
  4. I think you might be able to achieve this by not linking your phones to your NAS (pro license), just create shared folders (wpte, other_user) at NAS side and share different folder with different phone.
  5. I guess the peers that have the original (unencrypted) data do all encryption/decryption works, the encrypted folder peers should never have any undecrypted data (even partially), otherwise there's a big issue.
  6. You can't decrypt an encrypted shared folder. From the howto page: Encrypted node does not have decryption mechanism, so it cannot decrypt files. When you create a "Encrypted Folder" share on device A, you get 3 keys (R/W, Read-only, Encrypted), the folder on device A is not encrypted and has the original data. Now when you share the "Encrypted" key to device E, device E has encrypted data after fully synchronized. There's no way to decrypt this folder. Backup the 3 keys. You can always get the original data on device A. If, for some reason, device A is gone (dead system or dead storage), you'll need a new device N, install Resilio Sync, then enter the R/W key (or the Read-only key), synchronize and get the original data on device N. If your device A is gone, you don't have any other devices linked with R/W key or Read-only key, and you lost R/W key and Read-only key, consider your original data is gone forever.
  7. It's not in Resilio Sync's options, it's Linux's system. Does your clients' NAS offer shell access that you can type commands, or can you run user bash shell script from its GUI, for example, a cron script at boot time?
  8. He has more files to watch than his NAS system's current fs notify watcher limit, the number varies (the default value for Ubuntu is 8192). So unless he increases the limit, reinstalling Resilio Sync won't help. If his NAS is a Linux system, try increasing the notify watcher limit by modifying /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches, or fs.inotify.max_user_watches in /etc/sysctl.conf. See: Ubuntu Increase Inotify Watcher (File Watch Limit) - DEV Community
  9. You can apply license with --license command line option. Try reading the output of ./rslsync --help
  10. Create a link (softlink or hardlink) in /var/www/nextcloud/data pointing to RSL folder, maybe?
  11. The line from netstat clearly shows your rslsync is listening to, which is only accessible from localhost. For listening to all interfaces, It should be like: tcp 0 0* LISTEN - There might be some problems with your config file, try testing rslsync with --webui.listen option as ./rslsync --webui.listen see: Guide to Linux, and Sync peculiarities – Sync (resilio.com)
  12. Yes it's enough. Next you should use netstat to verify the rslsync is really listening to port 8888 on all interfaces: netstat -anp if it indeed listens on all interfaces, then I guess it's firewall, try totally disable firewall (temporally) and test.
  13. Your WebUI is configured to listen to localhost only, which is only accessible from the same PC. Either you need to re-configure it to listen on other interface (for example,, which means port 8888 on all interfaces), or use some other applications that can do port forward for you. read Configuring WebUI – Sync (resilio.com)
  14. You can use killall with process name I use killall -15 -u myuser rslsync (15: SIGTERM)
  15. A paid feature, called "Sharing a folder locally", is available since 2.7.0, see: Sharing a folder locally – Sync (resilio.com)
  16. I think the default behavior should work well for you, as long as at least one of the other devices have set the folder to "Sync All" instead of "Selective Sync". If all devices (everyone of them) have this folder set to "Selective Sync", then nobody will take the new files, i.e., no sync. If in doubt, you can create cases to test.
  17. As far as I know, all new files will be sync'ed to other devices (non-selective sync mode, or selective mode with the folder selected to be sync'ed), except if . the new files that are in IgnoreList file; . the new files that have .rsls extension (empty placeholder for real files in selective mode).
  18. Isn't it "folder_defaults.known_hosts"? Did you go thru this page? Running Sync in configuration mode – Sync (resilio.com) and this? Power user preferences – Sync (resilio.com)
  19. I personally never start RSL as service on my Windows systems, I don't even have it automatically start when I log in. I only start it when I need to sync files, and exit it once the synchronization finishes. Of course I have 2 Raspberry Pis, running 24x7, with rslsync always online. On the other hand, I am not sure if the pop-up menu works correctly when running RSL as service on Windows (I am talking about the RSL pop-up menu when you right click on files, such as "Sync to this device / Remove from this device / Remove from all devices", etc.)
  20. Just create different config files, and run different instances of rslsync with --config config_file. Make sure you configure different webui port, storage_path, shared_folders, etc. for each instance. use rslsync --dump-sample-config to create config file to start with.
  21. Currently you can't exit by clicking close(X). Right click Resilio Sync's trayicon for pop-up menu, then click on "Exit".
  22. From what I see, RSL inserts ".Conflict" before file extension in case of conflicts: https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/204753629-Conflict-files-in-Sync
  23. I have Android 7/8/9/10 devices and they all work correctly with external SD cards. However, since there are so many Android varieties, I recommend that you test on your devices.
  24. If you have one of the paid plans, you can achieve this by: 1. set the share to "Selective Sync" (note: "Selective Sync" is not available if you use Sync free); 2. select some files/folders (<600GB) and choose "sync to this device", wait for sync completion, then manually copy (do NOT move!) the sync'ed files/folders to the other disk, after you finish copying, select these files/folders again and choose "remove from this device". 3. repeat step 2 with some other files/folder (sync/copy/remove), eventually you'll finish all 1.4TB files/folders while only using <600GB space on d: drive.
