  1. Your mileage may vary. You can love it and we can choose NOT to love it.
  2. Thanks but I have already gone back to 1.4. I won't completely bail to another software because I like the idea of bittorrent protocol so I'll keep checking back to see whats up. While that may work, the new methodology is too complex for most users and I don't want to have to do that on three or four machines. What happens in the event of a HD crash or new machine replacement? For the love of god go back to the way it was. It was simple and you didn't have to think about it. And.... while you are in there, add a button that allows you to exclude folders without having to muck about with
  3. Well said - 2.0 is kind of a downer and in need of a serious rethink. I don't understand why the additional functionality couldn't have been added without completely changing the way the software works. Ive just downgraded to 1.4 where I will stay. I will be happy to try 2.5 or 3.0 when they put it back to its glorious self.
  4. Good morning - I have been noticing that my macbook (brand new) was taking a hell of a long time to reboot so I rebuilt it from scratch. Everything was fine and then I installed Sync 2.0. Macbook started taking forever to reboot AGAIN. I uninstalled 2.0 not because of the rebooting issue but because I don't like 2.0. I reinstalled 1.4 and guess what? Reboots like a champ again. Coinkydink? Maybe, but you guys might want to take a look see. OK - Again - not saying it is 2.0, and not saying it isn't 2.0, but... to me the entire machine seems considerably more responsive after the
  5. me too - thanks yeah - 2.0 goes way off the reservation - I'm uninstalling it and going back to 1.4.
  6. Yeah Thanks I'll give that a try - so this means that you can only have synced folders if they are in the default library? Who's idea was that? What if I want to sync two folders that aren't in the default location? Methinks I may be going back to 1.4 - Just tried that and it created a documents (1) folder. I'm probably doing it wrong, but I don't care and I don't like the way it works now. I'm going back to 1.4. It was simple and it worked.
  7. In sync 1.0 you used to share a folder, copy the key, paste the key in on the other machine and the two folders synced. Easy as pie. Either I'm being a total knuckle head or I am missing something in 2.0. I used to sync my entire documents folder from my macbook to my mac pro and my windows machine. This way all documents were in sync on all three machines. For the life of me, this new share thing works completely differently. I can get the sync to work, but now it puts it in the "default directory." I don't want it to copy the files to the default directory. I want it to sync the folder
  8. Hey guys - just wondering how does BT Sync deal with files that are actually layers of files. For instance if I make a 500b zip file and then add a file to the zip file is BTSync able to simply update the added file inside the archive or does it need to sync the whole file in its entirety? I am asking because I am considering using it to sync the iPhoto library (MAC) from one machine to another. This "library" is technically a folder acting like a file with all of the directories and photos inside of it. Will it realize that the files have changed and simply add or remove the files or
