  1. Follow up. I did add some ignore items as noted.


    Not that some time has passed, I'm still having troubles getting files to actually sync to the receiving computer. :(


    I thought I had success when leaving all machines on for days to let it index etc., but ultimately the files do not appear to be moving over as expected. :(


    BTsync on the machine with the files seems to be stuck indexing, and also "sending" but only a low transfer rate ~20KB/s - 30KB/s seems most common.


    Of course this means months to sync completely.



    For the life of me I cannot figure out why this isn't working more fluidly. Is it something to do with the raspberryPI I am using to receive maybe?

    --> Shouldn't be, as it successfully synced ~30GB of files and I did see 500KB/s in the past...




    Help! (Sync logs messages to helen and romanz)


  2. Follow up.


    It seems to be that SYNC works for a period of time (hour maybe?) then the transfer rate grinds to a halt, then stops transferring altogether. BTSync still shows "Indexing" but I am not confident anything is happening, as the files are not copied, and the transfer rate is not even displayed (0).


    Is it possible that the HDD is going to sleep or something? Why else would the transfer stop for no apparent reason?


    Recent log attached here. (Figured out, the zips are logs, haha)


  3. Hi RomanZ

    I was on 2.3.3 and upgraded to 2.3.5 but nothing appears to have changed.


    I did not have an hdd_low_priority, but did have "disk_low_priority" which was set to false. Updated to true and believe the frozen HDD issue appears to be resolved.



    I have however noted another issue which is making the system pretty unusable, namely I have two sync folders active going to my home linux based machine, but I am only seeing ~30-60KB/s transfer speeds. 100GB of files will take over a month at this rate...

    Not sure why so slow, or what I can do to impact. :(


    Also, getting periodic btsync freezing. I cant upload my logs here, as it says they're too big, even after compression down to 40kb...

    Here's a public dropbox link with the two logs..



    --Update-- I rebooted my computer, and killed my other torrent software before it got rocking and rolling, and speeds are better. Suspect accidentally chewing up my bandwidth there may have been the cause. 


    Having said that, is there any way to confirm this was indeed the issue via the logs above?

  4. Hello!

    I am trying to use BTsync with an external HDD, as my main PC SSD is pretty small.


    I'm trying to sync ~100GB of home movie files in a couple of different formats, but what I find is that as soon as btsync starts indexing the folder on my HDD the HDD becomes extremely slow, but not technically frozen.


    It takes ~4 minutes to load a folder on this HDD while indexing is running.



    I tried to get around this last night by leaving my PC on overnight indexing, but when I came in the morning it hadn't actually indexed over night? -- Might be user error, consider an anecdote.



    Is there a power use setting I can adjust to prevent indexing from making the drive unusable? I've already turned down the folder rescan time to every few hours.


    Let me know!

    BTSync does not indicate problematic files. Actually, in 1.3 it should simply skip them - so i'm surprised to see that indexing has stopped. Can you please share your debug log?

    The log was provided. Please advise.



    12 days, no change, 8 days since original post, still no resolution, action, or even response in a week. Bittorrent, where are you?


    If indexing has "paused", 




    Thanks for the quick response.


    Good point, that was poor use of terminology on my end. The process is "(Indexing..)" but it has not updated from "948.9GB in 2255962 files" in five days now.



    I have a minimum of 422GB free space on my drives. (each has greater than or equal to 422GB) I assume that is enough, correct?



    I'm currently indexing a new external drive, I manually copied the data first. Literally bought it, and moved the data over, started indexing. As such It's hard for me to imagine that the files would be locked for some reason.

    ----> Is there any way to verify that files are in use that should not be while indexing?


    Thanks for your help!

  7. Hello,

    Indexing Paused at 948.9GB (2255962 files) -- Four days, no change


    Trying to index ~2TB of files, mostly website backups, personal files etc.



    I'm indexing only, have not actually started to transfer files to another location, just installed for initial testing.




    When Debugging was enabled, it was reporting as if syncing files, but there is no change in the client.:

    (Snippet of log below)





    Once this finally indexes (if ever) is there a way to manually copy the data in question to a new drive, and have bittorrent sync still sync as expected? or do I need to let it all transfer via bittorrent sync?



    Any input on the endless syncing would be appreciated, at this point I am unsure it will ever complete.

    have rebooted etc. no luck.
