  1. I couldn't agree with you more. I only had 8 folders to sync. But the principle of the matter is why I've installed syncthing today. It's a process to get the family to switch, but by Sunday, I expect not to have anymore BTSync software on my devices. I too am walking the walk. This is my last visit to the forum.
  2. Hear hear!Not only that, but when you're trusting them to keep your data secure through encryption, and you don't believe they're trustworthy enough to keep a promise, then they've just lost 90% of their business model.
  3. With all do respect guys, when you said "we’re improving the free edition over what’s available in version 1.4," you lied. And when you said "now EULA allows business use explicitly" for 1.4, you thought that making that a pro-only feature would be an "improvement" too. It would have been fine if you were up front about it, but you decided to go back on your word. I would never do business with a company this deceitful. I'll find other options to sync my files. You had a good thing going for a while, but I'm done.
  4. No, but there is a pattern the BT staff for rebuking people for not staying on topic. (Rebuke might be a strong word.) That's where my comment is directed. Like I said, it's difficult to maintain a fluid conversation that way. I don't think that people were implying that the open source idea was anything new, nor do I believe that the thread was turning into a debate as I already mentioned. Since this conversation is contributing nothing to the subject at hand, (the expectations of Sync), then out of respect I will respond no further.
  5. @RomanZ It's really hard to have an adequate discussion when we are inhibited from branching into subtopics that are directly related to the topic of the thread we're in. It's hard to jump-threads and keep the continuity of conversation. Also, I really don't feel that the discussion was drifting off topic in the direction of an Open Source debate. But I do thank you for the links.
  6. I believe BT's target is to the people who value having there files synced in a place that's not in the cloud. Those are the people who value privacy. The people who don't value privacy are those that will use services like one drive, etc. If you don't value privacy, then you probably aren't going to be interested in paying for Sync; I suspect BT is okay with that.
  7. I'm afraid the Out of Sync issue appeared for me again today for no apparent reason. 1.2KB, 7 files, no subfolders. 3 of 3 peers connected. No !Sync files to delete either. *So confused* Not sure if the experimental build offer is exclusive, but if not I'd be willing to give it a try. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
  8. It's funny you mentioned FreeFileSync. I bumped into that yesterday as I was looking into an alternative to BTSync for a LAN backup utility. I really like it. I have about 700GB that I was backing up with BTSync but by the time it all synced up, I'd get another "Out of Sync" error. (Currently on 1.4.106 and had many of those errors.) After several months of that, I am fed up. In an effort to stay on topic, I still have a few WAN folders using BTSync that (currently) don't have the "Out of Sync" error. I'll keep your post in mind for when those start to behave badly. Thank you for the tip!
  9. Not just you, I've got this problem. About 10% of my folders have it. I can delete the share and start over, but after a while it happens again. This has been an issue with all of 1.4.xx for me.
  10. It is anticipated that this will be a premium (paid) feature, correct?
  11. Oh thanks. Could you point me to a thread that gives instructions on how to edit this config file? I've searched for it but I'm not seeing much for Windows. Nevermind. Found it! On another note, I'm noticing a slight glitch in the UI. I have so many shares that the window requires a vertical scroll bar. Now the three dots get partially covered up. Nothing I've tried will adjust this. Not a big deal, but just thought I'd mention it.
  12. I got the options > preferences > advanced, but I just don't see "more options." Could you be a bit more specific? (Windows 7 here.)
  13. I'm trying out 1.4 to see how stable it is. Is there any way to set the Sync Archive duration like in 1.3?
  14. I would like to encourage you to take a poll to see if the community feels you're ready to take the beta tag off of this product. 1.4 still has big issues that should be dealt with. Issues like, oh I donno, not syncing.
