  1. Well, I'm at about 24GB and I can say the app on my Android hasn't worked since the initial sync 10 days ago. Says there is 1 of 2 peers connected, but just white page when trying to view the peers. The overall problem is they tried to develop too many features in short time without QAing them. Finding bugs within 5 minutes of an upgrade is pretty regular occurrence, but shouldn't be in a mature program.
  2. You need to see what files it is sending over and over. You may need to turn on debug logging. Once you identify the file(s), try moving, renaming or if you don't need it, just delete it.
  3. Check the time is accurate on the NAS. Also check if you're running out of memory. My 512MB NAS runs out of memory due to BT Sync and I had to give up on it. I don't think they optimized the NAS versions or are written by senior embedded developers that manage resources better than big PC's.
  4. I don't think you'll see that again. These services were before Resilio was selling their own commercial version to make money. And the way I'm seeing the support and development going the last year, I would highly doubt a business would invest the resources into developing this if btsync were to stop development at any time without notice.
  5. Those instructions are for general VPS. Any VPS with sufficient storage space would be fine.
  6. No. Unless both PC's are online at the same time, they won't sync. The difference between Sync and things like gdrive, dropbox and onedrive, is that they always have a server online to sync with, so when offline hosts come up, they sync to the server, not to PC1. Solutions: Don't power down either machine Add a third PC that is always on whenever PC1 or 2 is on
  7. I use predefined hosts on public static IP's, and for static private to private IP's. If the network will change often, its better just to use their tracker. The ports used are shown in the configuration. On my home network, I have 1GBe for general devices and PC's, and a 10GBe network for higher bandwidth storage and network devices. Before using predefined hosts, I wouldn't necessarily see the traffic going over the 10GBe network, so using predefined hosts helped solve that. Note, over the years and updates, I've often found these settings to go missing or changed back to defaults. So if you KNOW your hosts are operational but not seeing the peers, recheck your predefined hosts list is correct.
  8. Has anyone else been experiencing momentary system hangs during large syncs? Starting in either 2.6.2 or 2.6.3 (I think the later), I've been experiencing system hangs where I can move the mouse but not click, and the desktop really doesn't refresh. I've managed to leave Task Manager open during one of these times and I can see "System Interrupts" is pegging the CPU. This either means my network driver changed recently (maybe when Windows went to 1809?) and isn't effectively using the proper driver and hardware (it's a 10GBe Nic connected to another 10GBe nic via 10GBe switch), or it means that Sync isn't efficiently sending data out the nic. Shortly after upgrading to 2.6.3, I noticed my sync speeds were higher than before, peaking at 1.6Gbps. Today, the system hangs have been the worst noticeable and speeds peaking at around 900Mbps. I know from dealing with embedded devices that dealing with high rate network transmissions is tricky balancing servicing the incoming/outgoing ethernet packet buffers and dealing with system interrupts and the polling vs interrupts... I'm using Intel 10GBe nics, so I'm expecting less CPU and more hardware offloading than the typical Realtek nic.
  9. You didn't understand the request. The problem is that each release has its OWN sticky thread. So when new release 2.6.4 post is made, its a new thread with no existing notifications. Whereas if they had a thread called "Resilio Releases", then you could subscribe to that thread and be notified automatically each time a release is made. They just need to top post in that thread so the newest release is always post #1. But you're right about the slow death.
  10. Depends on the error. Click on the "3 of 7".
  11. Updating issues are resolved now in 2.6.2/2.6.3. Before, updating from "Check now" was like pulling teeth with failed updates and stupid error messages. Was just smooth on 3/3 of machines upgrading from 2.6.2 to 2.6.3 on Windows. Much appreciated, this was a sore spot for me.
  12. Try adding the temp file ext to the IgnoreList and see if that helps. Then it shouldn't see the temp to final change, just when its the final file.
  13. You wouldn't want that performance hit unless you shared your NAS with people you don't trust. The patches are really for cloud machines. That's why you're seeing more patches default disabled so as not to critically hobble those not necessarily at risk of malicious exploits.
  14. Yes, it resolved it for me where it was happening at least 25% of the time on 2.6.1. My NAS is still stuck on some issue, but it appears to be crcdownloads related and not the "no peers online" bug.
  15. I used Unlocker and it didn't work. Thanks for the MoveFile mention. I'll try that for the inevitable next time.
  16. Oh, you're not wrong, this is epic design and QA failure for sure. This is what happens when there are no experienced developers on a team. You just asked for a work around. For me, it was worth it to stop the bug where files fail to sync due to no peers being online (when there are several). That caused much more inconvenience than two reboots and 7+ minutes of time. I've lost any expectation that they will fix this error anytime soon.
  17. I've been attempting the install and having it fail, then booting into safe mode and moving over/renaming the exe in the roaming folder.
  18. This bug appears to be introduced after the 2.5.13 release and is still frequently occurring for 2.6.2. It is a major issue and so far I have not seen any acknowledgement from Resilio on resolving this new bug. I would have treated this as a high priority bug when first reported 3 months ago. This is happening so frequently on all my setups and for others, I question how this didn't get noticed and resolved months ago. Version 2.6.2 cleared up this very frequent bug on my Win10 machine. I was thinking you might have actually fixed the bug and was so happy. Until... Version 2.6.2. just showed the issue for my WHS2011 where I don't recall seeing this bug previously on that machine in 2.6.0 or 2.6.1. Version 2.6.2, no change on QNAP NAS that doesn't seem to finish the "Loading..." so I don't even know which 6 files are stuck. Clearly, the error message about no source being online for too long is wildly wrong and lacks basic logic checks as this shows even with all peers online. At the very least, improve the error message to reflect what the actual error is. Please fix this. At the very least, communicate with us as there are many of us who are looking at alternatives because this issue is so annoying and going on for so long without any feedback from Resilio.
  19. It seems Sync has issues with .crdownload files. Today I had to move a 2GB drive to a 2.5GB drive so I removed the share from Sync before moving the data. The share was supposedly synced at that point so the expectation is that after re-adding it back and it indexing, they should have been in sync. However, after removing the share, moving the data and adding back the share, I have 22 conflicts, all for .crdownload files that don't exist. I get the error "These cannot be downloaded as there are no source peers online for too long a time". All these files were transient and long ago removed, and on top of that, not ever in the folder that Sync is reporting. I have no idea where this old information is coming from, so there is obviously one or more bugs about failing to clean up properly, and failing to detect/index properly. A search on both computers for "*.crdownload" turned up no results. I've just added .crdownload to my IgnoreList, so hopefully I'll avoid these bugs in the future.
  20. Hmm. I guess it was just obvious since they had this for NAS'. Search the forum for "webgui" and there's hits from 2013, 2014... https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001184490-Configuring-WebUI-
  21. This is generally a firewall thing and outside the scope of the app developers themselves. Most people behind a NAT router isn't going to have this problem. On my public VPS running sync, I had to open the port to access it. Home users will generally be put into a Home profile and public computers into the public profile. So by default, LAN users will be seen as friendly to the computer but not public ones.
  22. I've never liked their debug logs, as you need a decoder ring to make sense of errors, but I'd think you need the log from the other side. This log is basically just saying, "I got a file but it was size: 0". Need to know why the other side is telling you its a size 0 file.
  23. Ok, I don't that was it then. I think it's been rslsync since being on 2.x, and was btsync before that?
