  1. Hello, Why is it that, all of a sudden, do I see the above message, "Delete from all synced devices", appear next to the Bittorrent Sync icon in my Windows tray?. When I click on the message, naturally the client is pulled up but I get messages indicating that a script is taking too long to run (why this 'HTML'-based client rplaced the more native one in the latest release is anyone's guess - maybe it makes the code base more homogenous). The client, in this latest case, then crashes. This has happened twice. The first time, the client did not crash, but instead seemed to be about to do some ominous deletions. I therefore terminated the process. What does this message mean (especially in light of the fact that I was doing nothing involving any deletions or otherwise interacting with the sync software)? Thanks.
  2. OK, thanks. Is there any way to see the progress of indexing using ssh?
  3. In addition, on MyBook Live, when I look at the CPU usage for btsync, it's < 10%. As I've disabled every other service (Twonky, Media Crawler, Apache) so the entire CPU can now be dedicated to btsync for indexing, what gives? P. S. How do I edit the subject line of this topic to include 'indexing' and 'seeding'?
  4. Hello, So I set up all my syncs in Windows (3 different directories, one of which has over 200,000 files in it and is approx 330GB). After everything was done, I was left with three .db files in... C:\Users\{some user}\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync I copied the same Windows directories to MyBook Live which was mounted as a drive in Windows. The idea being to 'seed' the initial sync. I took the above mentioned .db files (one for each sync'ed directory) and put them the the .sync directory on MyBook Live. Before doing that, I updated the .db files using the Firefox SqlLite plug-in (basically opened the .db file and issued, 'update files set path = replace(path, '\', '/');' - thanks to; http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/24152-doing-the-initial-sync-locally). Started up btsync on MyBook Live, pulled up the UI, which was (and is) very slow but eventually told me everything was synced (without the seeding it looks like it may have taken a number of months to do so). However, in the web UI, it still says the 330GB directory is indexing (on MyBook Live), yet I see no change in the size of the associated .db (the one brought over from Windows), .db-shm or .db-wal files (even though, on the latter two, the timestamp does get updated). Actually, on all the .db-shm files, the length is the same; 32768. Given that I have ssh access to MyBook Live, from the command line, how can I tell that indexing is going on and how do I tell how much longer its going to go on for (ps -ef, naturally, does not give me this information) Also, can btsync 'chew gum and walk at the same time', i.e. can it sync one directory and index another at the same time or does this have to happen consecutively. As this is effectively a one way sync, from Windows to MyBook Live, I assume that on the MyBook Live instance, I should not even have to index and can therefore set folder_rescan_interval to its maximum amount. Thanks, Matthew
  5. Hello, The above IP belongs to QuadraNet that appears to be a hosting company. What I would like to know is how is this IP able connect to my MyBook Live which is running btsync when I have put no holes in my firewall to allow such connections? In my sync.log, am seeing a lot of this...

S. also, why doesn't my enter key work on this HTML form (Firefox 28.0, Windows Vista). Seems to add a new line but cursor stays where it is.
