  1. Silently failing to sync completely is indeed a major problem and definitely a showstopper for me. If there are syncing issues, be it due to file names, available space, modification times or anything else, the user MUST be adequately informed. Otherwise btsync is merely a proof-of-concept solution and not one that can be relied upon for solving real-world problems. Cheers, Frank
  2. Same problem for me. I'm evaluating btsync for backing up my home dir to a NAS (Synology) and also have the problem that btsync only sees part of all files. On my MBP (OSX 10.9.1) running btsync 1.2.82 I have these file counts: - Running `find . -type f | wc -l` in my home folder tells me that I have 468700 files (including <10K .SyncIgnored files) - The "Folders" tab of the btsync GUI tells me that my home folder has 181901 files - Running `find . -type f | wc -l` in the target dir on my NAS yields 188547 (including about 6K in `.SyncArchive`) So the problem appears to be on the source machine, where btsync doesn't see all files. Unfortunately this is a SERIOUS problem, since it renders btsync practically unusable as a backup solution. Failing silently in this area is dangerous... I hope this can be rectified quickly.
