  1. I haven't been able to reproduce this in several days. I'm not sure if it's fixed or if I've been lucky. Should I leave the logs running just in case? I'm not sure if there are any downsides to having the logging turned on long-term. Thanks!
  2. Question, do I leave the logs running henceforth? Or do I only enable it while testing? Sometimes this can be unpredictable.
  3. OS is Linux, version is 1.2.82. I enabled the debugging and I'll post back once it happens again.
  4. No, I wasn't changing the case in the file name. It was an actual rename. For example, in one instance I noticed a mispelling of an MP3 file name that I had on my system. I renamed "Carnivor.mp3" to "Carnivore.mp3" and then shortly after, I ended up with both "Carnivor.mp3" and "Carnivore.mp3".
  5. Completely sure the file is not open. Completely sure that the clock is 100% synced via NTP on each machine, with the same time zone set.
  6. 1.2.82. I used the words "latest version" because BTS itself reports that it's up to date.
  7. Same problem here. Deleted folders keep coming back. I made sure that the date/time is synced on each PC, and it is, but still recreates ALL deleted folders. Worse, if I rename a folder, it will add the previous folder name back to the machine in addition to the new renamed one. I'm using the latest version of Sync. If I can't figure this out, I have to abandon BTS unfortunately.
  8. Hi guys, I'm just getting started with BTS, and I'm glad to now have it working (thanks to you guys). Now that I've spent a few days with it, I have a few questions and didn't want to clog the forum making a separate topic for each. 1.) There was at least one instance recently where I renamed a folder on one machine, but all machines ended up with the folder under the new name as well as the old name existing at the same time (duplicated). The only theoretical reason I can think of that might cause this is the date/time not being synced on every machine, but it is. Is there any reason this may occur other than date/time being off? 2.) I like to take snapshots (images) of my machines in case I need to restore them. I'm under the impression that I could set up the syncs and build them into the image, since BTS works from date/time stamps anyway which I would think would override whatever is in the image. Are there any potential downsides into building BTS into an image?
  9. I figured it out. All my devices are syncing now. My plan is to migrate away from SpiderOak, which I've been using to sync each machine but for a cost. I wanted to evaluate Bts for a possible replacement. The problem was, SpiderOak was syncing whatever configuration file Bts uses (I think it's .sync) between the macihnes, effectively making each machine think it was the same one. The tablet is outside of Spideroaks jurisdiction, so that explains why that one was working. To solve, I moved the btsync binary to ~/.btsync on each machine, killed and then restarted the btsync daemon. I had to re-add all the folders on each machine but I saw the results immediately. Moral of the story: Keep any other syncing tools away from the Bts configuration files, and preferably away from any folder that Bts manages. Thank you to each of you that posted.
  10. I went ahead and generated a new Sync key. Unfortunately, still no go. I went as far as to check file-level permissions, date stamps, and free space. My laptop has 90GB free (which is fine since the folder tops out at 50GB) and my desktop has over 300GB free. Both are being synced as full-access, so that's not the issue. I also checked that the date/time on both machines was synchronized, and it is. My tablet/laptop will sync the Pictures share no problem, but my Desktop/Laptop won't see eachother. In fact, I added a completely fresh folder to be synced and it has the same problem.
  11. Hi guys, I've been using Bittorrent Sync for a while to Sync my Pictures folder on my computer to the camera folder on my tablet, and that works beautifully. Today I decided to sync a completely different folder on my desktop and my laptop. Unfortunately, it doesn't work at all whatsoever. My laptop and tablet still communicate just fine with the original share (so I guess I can assume it's not a firewall issue) but I opened port 3000 and 3838 on my firewall as I've read others doing on this forum, and still no dice. Basically what happens is that the "connected devices" field in the web console never shows a connected computer. Both computers are syncing with the same sync key I generated. The OS is Linux. It does index the files just fine. Just the two computers seem to never see each other. Here are a couple of reasons I suspect may be the cause, maybe I'm right or it's something different altogether. 1.) The folder on my laptop I'm syncing has 5GB of files in it, and the matching folder on the desktop has about 40GB in it. I was thinking Bittorrent Sync would merge them and make them the same. Maybe it doesn't do that? 2.) Perhaps my firewall is blocking my desktop and laptop from communicating. My tablet uses Wifi through the same network so I wouldn't think it would be a firewall issue but you never know. My pictures sync shows my tablet connected but my new sync shows no device connected. 3.) I used the sync key on a different laptop for a short time, but have since deleted the sync on that machine. Perhaps Bittorrent Sync is limited to just two computers?
