  1. BTSync is very good, I've used it extensively (see http://blog.bittorrent.com/2014/06/24/sync-hacks-waking-up-some-very-old-instruments/ ). Now using a 1.3 version but leaving BTSync at the end of the academic year. The limitation to 10 folders in academic projects with diverse teams and students makes it unusable for similar purposes. It's really bad to see die such a good piece of software because, from my point of view, an unfortunate commercial decision. Exactly the opposite that often less can be more... Very sorry to leave BTSync.
  2. Ah, I understand. I was thinking I'm too old to work with computers :-D so I'm happy this was not the cause. Thanks for your remark! But I see that the old interface needs less ressources than a full modern browser, and ressources are an issue, so I'll stay on 1.3 in the meantime. I have only one machine with 1.4 to generate these awesome links!
  3. I can't see this on the 1.4 interface. I did see it on an earlier 1.4 version on Windows 7 but on 1.4.103 on Windows XP (chrome and firefox browser) I see these and other settings no longer. The "Advanced" tab doesn't show any "more options", at least on my computers.
  4. 1.4 up and running, but step back to 1.3.109 Reasons: the interface of 1.4 is taking more resources than that from 1.3. With many folders and many peers I have to monitor this is important. I liked the old interface also much better. Some adjustments as lan encrypt data and sync trash ttl are gone on 1.4. Very important for me (huge files often changing on a 30 ttl basis can be a big problem with harddisk space). Otherwise 1.4 was fine, specially the possibility to send links with parameters such the folder name and a very easy installation.
  5. Probably, since there are 12 shared folders with >600 GB data, about a million files and several dozens of connected peers. On the same (old) machine other systems like Dropbox were unable to index the needed content.
  6. After a couple of restarts it seems to work! Thank you very much!
  7. Thanks for all hints! Now BTSync.exe fires up the browser (Firefox now) but I see only a blank page. CPU usage goes rapidly to 100% and the computer remains unresponsive, only the power button helps. Maybe my machines are too old (>10 years). Will continue to try, thanks anyway!
  8. Oh, I did not realise that 1.4 is ok now for Windows XP. Will give a try, thanks! Well, I tried 1.4.109 on Windows XP. No way to bring any interface up. It seems to run, but "show bittorrent sync" shows nothing, no window nor browser shows up. I'm using IronPortable as browser.
  9. Still on 1.3.109. Using Windows XP on all machines.
  10. Solved, restarting the instance brings all files again.
  11. I have the impression that the new 1.4 versions have broken some cloud instances... at least for me. Check your cloud data and keep copies!
  12. Any way to have a link from the new 1.4 version on Windows Phone for desktops running 1.3 (Windows XP)? Actually it's impossible to connect! Thanks, Pere
  13. Same thing here. No way to download it with, in this case, chromium. No problem with Firefox.
  14. Indeed it would be usefull if applying read-only one time secrets would not show the regular secret, avoiding publishing and subsequent shares. It's clear that one can copy and paste files between folders, and have the copies shared, but it is not the same. If I wish to share material with my students I can give everyone an one-time readonly code on a folder that I can update and change, but I don't wish that someone else connects to them and sees all this changes as they happen. If they give away some or all shared files, that is an explicit fraudulent action that can be investigated and prosecuted. With a visible common sharing code that can be leaked this is more difficult if not impossible.
