  1. Hello ! I got the answer from BT support (thank you Emmet !). Here is the method for BTSync 2 Pro. 1/ link your 2 PCs in disconnected mode (this is the trick !) 2/ add the folder in the first PC 3/ after a while the folder will appear on the second PC, but as disconnected (doted lines) 4/ connect the folder on the second PC by clicking on the "Connect" button (it appears when your mouse hovers over the folder) 5/ change the save location with the path of the existing folder. Be carefull : you will likely have to delete the end of the path, which is filled automatically 6/ click on the "Connect" button; a warning message will appear : " Destination folder is not empty. Add anyway?" 7/ click OK 8/ Done
  2. This issue has been discussed here very recently. Make a search
  3. Hello, the BT team ! Nobody to answer ? This seems to be a real bug, isn't it ? Best regards. md
  4. I have 2 identical folders on my 2 PC (both Windows 7 ). In fact these 2 folders werre synced with BTSync 1.4. When I try to sync these 2 folders with BTSync 2.0 I get a warning message "target folder is not empty and files could be overwritten. Add still ?", which is fine. However, when I click OK the same message comes again, and again... So it's impossible to sync 2 existing files with BTSyc 2.0 (free version). Am I doing something wrong ? Thanks
  5. Hi ! When I upgraded to V2.0 version I accepted a free trial of Pro version, but I did not buy it when the trial ended. I own to devices (1 desktop and on laptop) which are both linked to my new identity (I can see them on both devices). BTSync Help Center says : "When you’ve linked your devices to one identity, each and every folder added to Sync on one device will automatically be available on all the other devices. Just add a folder on the laptop - and shortly it’ll appear on the desktop and your mobile phone/tablet. You don’t have to take any action other than just adding a folder to Sync on one of the devices, in other words, no sending links or scanning QR codes is required." However, when I add folders in BTSync on one device it never appears nor synchronize on the other device. I suspect this is because I use the free version. Is that true ? In that case, how to start syncing a folder ? Thank you for your help.
  6. Thank you for your very clear explanation
  7. Thank you GreatMarko. Any explanation to my first question ?
  8. Hi ! Could someone explain the meaning of the dot at the beginning of a line in SyncIgnore ? For example : .DS_Store ._* What's the difference with : DS_Store _* More generally, it would be nice to have a small guide or tuto about "how to use .SynIgnore". Thanks
  9. Thanks ! Do you have any idea of when it will be implemented ?
  10. Problem comes likkely from the One-way Sync (read only). I had similar problems and I got an answer from BTSync support. See here : http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/25655-one-way-sync-issue/ In a nushell : read only sync is useless as it is now.
  11. Finaly I asked BTSync support and I got answer : Sync support team (SyncApp by BitTorrent, Inc.) Dec 26 02:22 Hi! This is a current behaviour of BTSync. We are planning to improve it in the future versions. Thanks!
  12. Hi Casacota; I don'y see this option. Where can I find it ? Thank you Trebion. Your explanation helps to understand. Yes; I am expencting exactly the same thing as you.
  13. 1/ Are you sure to synchronize the folder "Lightroom 5 Catalog" which contents your LR catalog (Lightroom 5 Catalog.lrcat) ? 2/ Is this a full sync or a one-way Sync (read only secret) ? 3/ Is Lightroom closed on the first PC ? One thing I don't understand : you are mentioning a linux arm based NAS. Does that mean that your LR catalog is on this NAS ? On which Pc do you want to use Lightroom ? NB : I 'm synchroniszing LR catalog between 2 PC and it works if I use full Sync; I have only problem when I use one-way sync.
  14. Hi somid3, Thanks for your answer. No, I am not requesting separate codes for read, write, delete. What I'm looking for is a one-way sync. Let's call A the master device, B the second device and F the folder for which I need one-way sync. I want that all changes in F done on A propagates to F on B, but none of changes in F done on B propagates to F on A. However BTSync did not work like this : - as long as files are not modified in F on B, one-way sync works fine, i.e. all changes in F done on A propagates to F on B - as soon as a file is modified in F on B, one-way sync stops definitively for this file, i.e. none of the changes which will happen in F on A will propagate to F on B.
  15. Thank you for your answer. Maybe I did not explain very clearly. I don't think that what I'm looking for is a sync-all-changes-except-for-deletion type of share. What I'm looking for is a one-way sync. Let's call A the master device, B the second device and F the folder for which I need one-way sync. I want that all changes in F done on A propagates to F on B, but none of changes in F done on B propagates to F on A. However BTSync did not work like this : - as long as files are not modified in F on B, one-way sync works fine, i.e. all changes in F done on A propagates to F on B - as soon as a file is modified in F on B, one-way sync stops definitively for this file, i.e. none of the changes which will happen in F on A will propagate to F on B. I hope this is clearer now. Thanks again for your help.
  16. Hi ! As I explained in my post "One way Sync issue", I tried to use read only secret as you explained, but it doesn't work. If I take your example : as soon as one member of the family (eg "Mom") modifies a file in his "Dad" folder, synchronization of this file will stop definitively, i.e. no future changes of this file done by Dad on his own device will propagate to Mom's "Dad" folder. Is something wrong in the way I use BTSync, or is this the normal behavior ? Thanks for your help
  17. Hi ! I'm new on this forum and i'm a recent user of BT Sync on WIndows 7. I need one-way sync for one folder. So I set a read only secret (permanent). At first all files in the folder synchronized. When a file is modified in the master folder, changes are synchronized in the second folder. However, if a file is modified in the second folder, synchronization of this file is blocked : changes made in the master folder are no more synchronized in the second folder. Is this behavior normal ? I need a one-way sync in which the second folder is fully synchronized, even if some changes happen sometimes in the second folder.
