  1. This problem is still occurring in 2.7.2, over 5 years after these prior posts. I installed Resilio on a new computer and "remote peer" is deleting tens of thousands of files that literally don't exist. For all I know, I am really losing some of these files permanently. But what is clear is that something is very very wrong.
  2. SOLUTION: Can I Connect Two Pre-Populated Pre-Existing Folders? This explains how to change the folder on the destination device. However, why Sync chooses a random folder on its own is beyond me. Their should be an option for the sync to not begin until the user is asked to select a folder on the destination machine. And finding this information should not be so difficult!!
  3. UPDATE: Unable to get this working, I decided to delete the existing folder syncs and start over. Why is starting from scratch so hard?? As it stands, I have two computers with Documents folders that are 98% duplicates. How do I get Sync to sync these two folders without creating new folders and recreating the files? When I create a folder Standard Folder on either computer, it is immediately recreated on the other computer. But on the second computer, Resilio automatically sticks everything in C:\User\Resilio Sync\Documents. Why? In addition to that folder, I know have a second a
  4. How do I get Sync to sync the correct folders? Here's the situation: Sync has run beautifully for a long time on two computers, A & B. Computer B recently had a BSOD problem and windows was reinstalled. After the Windows reinstallation, I successfully resinstalled Sync and transferred the Sync license key from Computer A to Computer B. Sync started immediately, but using the wrong folder on Computer B! It started copying everything from Computer A's correct Documents folder to Computer B's wrong location (C:\User\Resilio Sync\Documents). I'm not sure why it created the Resilio Sync
  5. +1 @GreatMarko: while a user can disable all notifications, only the 'file locked' notifications are exceedingly annoying. I, and presumably the other posters, would prefer to enable notifications but disable only the 'file locked' notifications. How about adding a checkbox to the notification that says "ignore this notification" or "prevent this notification from repeating?"
  6. The sync mode settings seems to be "sticking" in the new version. Thanks for the tip.
  7. I will install the new version and see if that makes a difference. Thanks for the heads up.
  8. Apparently, I spoke too soon. When I returned ti this computer today, the sync mode had reverted to Connected. Any more ideas? This is becoming intolerable as I was unable to acess needed files and had to travel across town to obtain the access I needed. Many thaink for any suggestions. Merk
  9. Mkrazz, thanks for your help. That fix seems to have done the trick and the existing .bts files have all synced properly. Thank you for suggesting that alternate method. That said, I am not sure why there are two methods that on their face would not seem to accomplish the same result. One refers to "Selective Sync" and the other refers to the terms Synced, Connected and Disconnected. The use of different terminology is confusing and the inconsistency should be eliminated. Also, while I am on a roll , I will add that the term Connected is not particularly descriptive. Being Synced is also b
  10. Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, this week I paid for a Pro subscription under the new pricing model. Almost immediately, I started noticing these problems. The problem appears to be that while I had all my devices set to Sync all folders (and it was working beautifully for months), the implentation of the Pro license changed the synchronization mode on one computer to Connected. In a nutshell, I need to know how to change the synchronization mode back to Sync from Connected. Because others might be having similar problems, I am recounting the details below. Certain files (most
  11. As noted to you privately, Roman, this is not personal. You have been excellent in trying to assist me, but Sync appears designed to make it difficult, if not impossible, for a user to continue using the free version after the pro trial expires. I was not and have not ever used any of the Pro features you list. I simply sync two folders across three devices, nothing more. Twice now, I have had the Pro trial expire and twice the result has been disruption of my syncing ability through unlinking devices and folders. (The second trial was initiated after I had to uninstall and reinstall sync whil
  12. I want to update this thread because, as predicted, I am having problems now that my trials have expired. First, as background, as was recommended in an effort to avoid this mess, I created separate identies on my 3 devices, as suggested, and I deleted all the license folders to 'stop' the trial early. Despite that, the trials were either recreated or that solution did not work. Now my trials have expired and all of my BTS setups are telling me that I have no linked devices. HOW CAN THE DEFAULT BE THAT THE PRODUCT STOPS WORKING WHEN THE CUSTOMER SEEKS TO CONTINUE USING THE FREE VERSION??? T
  13. @RomanZ That sounds like great advice! If I do that, are you sure I will not run into any of the problems that have plagued me here? Or will Sync act as if my trial has stopped and require me to change my folders, etc.?
  14. @RomanZ I decided that the simplest means of getting this running again was to uninstall/reinstall on all my devices. So there is no need to set up a separate support ticket. I used Revo Uninstaller to purge all files and settings, then reinstalled. It is still a mess. After linking all devices and my 2 folders, BTS on my computer and laptop froze multiple times (spinning circle > 10 minutes). After restarting and rebooting several times, it looks like things may finally be working. But even though I linked and am syncing the same folders that have already been synced on these machines, B
  15. @RomanZ Here is how the problem is playing out: because my laptop is "connected" and not "synced," I am getting .bts placeholder files on my desktop machine. When I try to open those files, a BTS dialog opens that says, "File already in queue. [File Name] is already in the transfer queue." Clearly it is not in the transfer queue, nothing is being transferred and I cannot open the file on any device other than the one where it was last modified.
