  1. What this product needs is a GUI. The syncing setup is a nightmare for anyone but the most dedicated techies (in which I include myself). A year without an update is too long, clearly the product is being neglected which creates a vicious cycle of no support, no new customers, no new revenue, no support...
  2. First, not obvious to find the Sync button. I eventually discovered that pressing and holding on "B" would bring up the select circle and then the Sync at the bottom of the window. Second, while this is better than manually syncing each file, it's still manual. That said, deletes did sync automatically. I believe the behavior is such that if I want a sub-folder to Sync and not Selective Sync, I have to share it separately. The old deleted files cleared out and I'm unable to reproduce it at this time. If it recurs, I'll tun on debug and capture the log. Thank you for the help!
  3. 1) Here is the folder structure: A on the Mac has Selective Sync OFF and is shared. B is contained within A. A on the iPad has Selective Sync ON. B on the iPad has no options for Selective Sync, I guess you're telling me that it inherits OFF from the iPad parent? So folder B would have to be shared separately and then set to Selective Sync OFF on the iPad? 2) The Permissions on both platforms are Owner for all folders.
  4. I have several folders on my Mac that I want synced to iOS devices. The first time I set the folder to sync, it works fine. Subsequently when I open Sync, it will list files, but not have synced them to my iPad. On the Mac side, it reports that's it's synced. 1) If I click on an individual file, it will transfer/sync that file. The problem is that it doesn't automatically sync the whole folder, even though the folder is "synced". If I Clear the folder, then Sync it, then it syncs them all, but it's had to download all files again. 2) The opposite problem is that files that were deleted on the Mac, still show up on the iPad, but say "not available". What setting is needed to make them disappear when deleted on either device? Thanks!
  5. iOS 11 uses a .HEIC format for photos which is not compatible with most systems. This has rendered the photo backup in Sync for iOS essentially unusable. Unfortunate because I normally use it to transfer photos to my computer. However, there is a setting in the iOS Photos app to optionally convert the image(s) to .jpg whenever an image is transferred to a Mac or PC. Sync needs to access that setting and convert to .jpg as specified by the user.
  6. When I travel I frequently use OpenVPN for security. But as soon as I establish a VPN connection, my peers disappear. Do I really have to choose between a secure connection and syncing my files, or is there some solution to this dilemma?
  7. I wanted to be able to edit my photos, or delete them, and have the changes propagate to my other computers. But I didn't want to have to copy them from the Sync backup folder to another folder every time. On a Mac, I used a folder action in Automator to transfer all the images from the read-only backup folder to a standard folder so that they, and any changes I make, propagate to my other devices. But I'd still like the option to have the "backup" folder be read-write and to have the actions on any device propagate to the others, including the phone. It would be a very nice way to delete unwanted images from my phone which is currently a hassle on an iPhone.
  8. Resilio is the proxy server that finds your peers.
  9. That's not what we're asking for. I want to be able to send a link to someone who doesn't use Resilio. Ok, so maybe it's hard to do, but really really useful! You guys are smart, write tight code and makes things work very fast. You can figure this out!
  10. My wife has a Mac laptop. She uses Sync Pro to access files on her Mac from her phone or iPad. It's one way, strictly read only on the iPad and iPhone. There are a variety of placeholder files with suffixes of .rslsi and .rslsc on her Mac. Why have these appeared and what can be done to clean them out as they create a lot of confusion for her.
  11. I checked back the day after your post and it had synced. Not sure what took so long, but it did recover.
  12. I use Sync to sync a 150GB folder of photos between a desktop and laptop. This has been working very smoothly. Last week I mad a bunch of changes and additions on the desktop and at the same time I was temporarily short of storage on the laptop. I didn't notice any problem until I went on the road and realized my photos folder was missing a lot of new additions. There was never an indication of an error or problem. I freed up plenty of storage on my laptop, disconnected the folder, but did not delete the contents on the laptop. I reconnected the folder, watched it index, then sync, but the new photos did not come across. BT Sync says the machines are in sync, but they are most definitely not. I can disconnect, delete and reconnect to force them back in sync, but this begs the question of Sync's behavior when out of storage on on peer, and how it recovers or doesn't.
  13. The feature comparison chart now shows that individual pro users DO NOT receive priority support. What's with that? Did they just get us to identify ourselves as individual users so they could lower our support level?
  14. I've upgraded to Pro, but stumbling on a couple of things. I'm basically trying to mirror most of my desktop files onto my laptop. For those files that I do mirror, I want them in the same place, same directory structure as my laptop. Of course these all have the same identify. 1) BT wants to put all sync folders into the default folder. How can I manually set the location of the synced folder? Or if it was smarter, why not an option to just put it on the new device where it was on the source device (i.e., the one that initially shared"). I find I can drag the default target folder for some folders, but system folders like "Downloads" won't allow that. With 1.4 I could simply point BTS to the laptop Downloads folder and it synced, worked great. 2) Some of my synced folders have green check boxes on them, and the folder icons have sync symbols. I don't like seeing either. Is there an option somewhere to get rid of those? Thanks! OSX 10.10.2 BTS 2.085 UDPATE! 1) I found the answer to this. Set the default under Devices to be "Connect". Then manually set the sync folder, then change to Sync All. Note that this does not solve the problem for the Downloads folder because you're actually dragging the target folder, not retargeting BTS, and OSX won't let BTS delete the Download system file.
  15. As I feared. Hopefully Apple will address this so we can use BT to escape the cloud. Thanks!
