  1. Thank you for the clarification Marko!! Looking forward to moving my files over to the Pro version soon.
  2. Thanks Marko!! Two more questions- 1) the 10 folder limit in 2.0: does that mean 10 ROOT folders? are sub-folders included in that number? 2) The Pro version states pricing as $39/year per user. How is a user determined? Is it a login to a BitTorrent server? Or a uniqe 'FingerPrint'/'Secret'? As far as we have seen in testing, we have never seen 'Users' - only 'Secrets'.
  3. Hello! We need some clarification please. Your March 3rd 2015 blog post states: "Free users have the ability to synchronize up to 10 folders, with no limits on file sizes and transfer speeds." We have BitSync 1.3 installed on 20+ office machines, servers and laptops, and have been testing it for more than a year. Collectively our company and employees have more than 30 secrets, and we have 5 internal dedicated BitSync servers running who's sole purpose is to sync files for our company, our employees, contractors, and some clients. Many of these 'Secrets' sync folders with several hundred sub-folders in them. (For example, we have a dedicated 'Secret' that syncs our Client Projects folder to 3 different servers, as an internal backup. This has folders for more than 100 clients, and each of these folders has many sub-folders for sorting file types). Our questions are: 1) Since we are using a free version, does the above blog post mean that sync will stop syncing all but 10 folders for each Secret? 2) Will our 'Secrets' stop syncing for our client machines who have not yet upgraded to version 1.4 or 2.0? 3) Is it possible to add a 'Secret' to a version 2.0 Sync client? We installed it on a test machine and noticed the blue "Update Secret" button is no longer present. Thanks!!!
  4. Jtroth- This is very cool functionality! I would like to ask you a few questions about this relating to a request from one of our clients. Could you please contact me when you have a minute? Thanks! James Tuttle 612-564-2545 James@MyStorageHouse.com
  5. GreatMarko- That's a great thought, however I am the IT Administrator and I can tell you we place no policy, admin or change restrictions on any of our machines here. We have a small staff and everyone logs in as admin to their own machines. I've verified there are no bad sectors or file corruption taking place. No other software appears to be changing or affected. BittorrentSync just seems to "forgot" all it's info after every reboot. And strangely enough, it's happening consistently, but only on 2 out of 5 of our systems.
  6. This is a strange issue. I'm only reporting it because it's happening on two different machines in our office. We have 4 folder shares (secrets) that we run on each machine. Without exception, every time we reboot one of the machines (Windows 7 SP1, BitTorrent Sync 1.3.105), Windows starts up and BitTorrent Sync forgets all our shares and opens up the "first time setup" window, prompting us to input our first secret or create one. This appears to only started happening with the latest version. We upgraded about a week ago. I've lost count of how my times we've uninstalled, re-installed and re-added all the folders to each machine. Each time, all 4 folders sync up as they are supposed to, and stay synced in real time- until you reboot. Then all settings are lost again. I noticed in a different post that was made a month and a half ago this was a documented bug in the linux version. Do you think it will be fixed soon? Thanks!!! We LOVE BitTorrent Sync- it's a phenomenal application, and you guys are clearly putting a lot of hard work into developing it. As an IT Consultant I recommend it all the time. Every single person I've recommended who has started using it always thanks me. -James
  7. Hello everyone! We have 16,000 files (11.2GB) synchronizing between 15 computers. It's been working flawlessness since we set it up 3 months ago. Two days ago we started seeing lots of .!sync files all over the place. What are these files, and what is their purpose? They don't seem to go away, even when we delete them. Are they an indication that something is not working correctly? Thanks!!! We LOVE BitTorrent Sync -James
  8. Dropbox: Just to share with everyone here we're a data center that has been extensively testing Bittorrent Sync on 100+ computers to see how well it works. We have been so impressed with it that we are working to build it into some new services to offer our clients. Part of our extensive testing has been in running it concurrently with Dropbox. Most of our clients who use Dropbox are very unhappy with is, mostly for how limited the amount of space it provides and how slow it is to sync. Our testing has shown that Dropbox also does not play well with Bitsync, owncloud, or any other syncing app. This is mostly because of the overly-complex way Dropbox manages time-stamp and transaction logs. In our tests Dropbox regularly deleted files and folders immediately after they were synchronized by bitsync. Not sure why, but that issue was consistent. The good news is that we are having some good success in getting BitSync to work with the ownCloud web back end, although it's still in testing and needs further customization. ownCloud clients frequently drop their connection to the server and stop syncing, so we're trying to create a system that uses BitSync on the client side with ownCloud on the web gui server side, to create a Dropbox-like system, that's more reliable, faster, and feature-robust than dropbox.
