  1. Resolved the issue. In case this is useful to anyone, here goes: On linux source, /var/lib/resilio-sync/ there is a hidden directory starting with .SyncUserxxxxx in .SyncUserxxxxx/folder I found directories that represent the standard folders in Resilio. Each of these directories contained info.dat file which when inspected (cat or vim) contain the shared secret key and the name of the standard folder. so: /var/lib/resilio-sync/.SyncUserxxxxx/folder/12345678976543221/info.dat I ended up finding duplicate of these directories all representing the same standard folder, which were probably created as I kept deleting, re-adding the standard/shared folder. Long story short, I quite easily identified the duplicate directories and deleted them all. I then inspected all of the long named .db files /var/lib/resilio-sync/ which represent the scanned content of the standard/shared folders. The listing of scanned directories within the .db file can be discerned with a little effort. I found some stale .dbs by determining the creation date as well as size and content. I am sure there is an easier method of loading .db into some sort of program and inspecting that way but VIM did fine. I then proceeded (this step I am not 100% was useful) to rename the storage.db to storage.db_old. At this point, I had to repeat above steps on the NAS with resilio path being different /volume1/@appstore/resiliosync/var (or /usr/local/resiliosync/var/ ). As a final step, I deleted the .sync directories in both source and destination(the ones I am trying to synchronize), re-added the directory I had troubles sharing, let it initialize locally and then added it on the destination successfully. It's now happy. The one thing I am still not sure about is that the initialization on the destination happened within 30 seconds for roughly 3 TBs of data. it is still cached ...somewhere but no one here would point me to where that may be ... the mystery which is attainable probably through paid support, fair enough. Anyway, if this was useful, cheers
  2. I went ahead and uninstalled Resilio package from Synology and confirmed the folder /volume1/@appdata/resiliosync was gone. I then reinstalled the latest Resilio package (current 2.6.3_1) and added the problematic folder using the shared key from source. Now, I am getting flooded with this error in the sync.log: assert failed /home/jenkins/slave-root/workspace/Build-Sync-Manually-EC2@6/sync/fs/tree/SyncFileEntryTree.cpp:167 Also, the shared folder I just added, its size jumps all over the map, from GB to TB to 0 and so forth. Seems like it isn't indexing at all. I read one another forum post that this may be because I am adding that folder using a modified shared key, but that is not the case, triple checked. Help pretty please
  3. Thanks for your response. I have not removed the app no. The reason is because i have other shared (standard) folders that are syncing OK. The destination (troubled) NAS is a Synology DS1511+ with ResilioSync package installed (as per Resilio instructions) The source is actually an Ubuntu server with ResilioSync installed and NAS mounted with CIFs. By the way, I found this and this article describing where the .db files reside. It is not clear how to cross-reference a .db to a shared folder so I tried logically deriving the connection using last-modified. Long story short, removing a .db file did not do anything for me. I am OK with starting completely fresh if that's what is required but I need help making sure I leave no traces of old install, database, config files.
  4. I am trying to re-do synced folder between two NASes. So far I tried: removed shared folder on both ends deleted .sync folder on both ends added the folder on the source NAS and let it index when adding this folder on the destination NAS by means of of shared key, the folder indexes multiple TBs in a span of a few minutes! sadly incorrectly also because the sizes do not match on source and destination. Where on earth is it getting this "cached" indexed info? I need to delete it! The idea to start fresh. Thanks,
  5. Hello, How do I delete a folder completely from resilio? If I delete the folder and then re-add it using the key/link, some sort of cache rebuilds that folder in moment (several TBs). Something is wrong with that cache and I'd like to force it to rebuild as if it was new. Thanks
  6. Hi, I used to synchronize a folder between two computers in a one directional way. Computer A -> Computer B For some reason folder size on one Computer A is larger than on B. When a new file is added to Computer A, it does not replicate to B. I have to delete the shared folder on Computer B and re-add using the Key/Link at which point the new file gets replicated. I tried deleting the .sync folder on Computer B and re-adding using Key/Link with no change in behavior. The folder size is still off, being the smaller one. Any ideas? Thank you, Computer A: Ubuntu server, Resilio Sync 2.6.0 (1317) Computer B: Synology NAS, Resilio Sync 2.6.0 (1317)
  7. Hi there, How can I clear "cache" of a folder that formerly was shared? The reason I ask if because If I were to delete an existing folder that used to be synced and then re-add it, the size of the folder is picked up quite fast (several TB) which leads me to believe that there is metadata cache of the folder. Also, the reason I am trying to do this is because this folder erroneously does not sync all of its content and I just want to start fresh. Resilio 2.5.12(1911) Any ideas?
  8. Good day, I've been successfully running btsync 1.3.8 on CentOS 7.3. I am looking to update to latest (1.4.1) and have a few questions: 1. The upgrade instructions state I need to place the rslsync along btsync. Where is that? /var/lib/btsync/? /var/lib/btsync has a folder .SyncUserxxxxxxx. Is that the folder you mean by ".sync" 2. I have the old btsync repo under /etc/yum.repos.d If i add the new repo for resilio, will that work with above manual install? 3. Will old shares be preserved? Thank you,
  9. This is a followup of my research.Thanks Remirus for your help with this issue. I was getting spammed by errors in sync.log: "SyncFileEntry: Failed to write attributes for file /mnt/share .... -1" The reason this was happening is because btsync user was trying to change file attributes (still curious if this is necessary and/or can be disabled) in the mounted share. My mounted share was mounted using CIFS and according to mount.cifs: In my case, I was getting "No permission" when attempting to change file permissions in that mount using something like "sudo -u btsync chmod 700" I even tried mounting the share using a non-root account/group (which I will be sticking with) and adding btsync to that group with above sad results. The solution was to add "noperm" option like so //NAS/Share /mnt/share cifs credentials=/root/.secret,noperm,uid=3000,gid=3000,iocharset=utf8 0 0 As per: mount.cifs Now it appears to be working well. I am still closely monitoring but I believe this is the answer to the issue.
  10. Good day, I have BTsync installed on 2 devices: Centos7 vm and a remote Synology NAS. Synchronization works well for about a day at which point Centos7's BTsync just stop re scanning folders. In other words, I make changes to folder structure that need to be synced with Synology NAS but BTysync does not pick those changes up on Centos7 until i restart the service. After restart folder rescan (every 600 seconds) works for another day. Where can i find logs in Centos7 to determine whats going wrong? Thank you!
  11. Thanks RomanZ! Do changes take effect right away ("hd_low_priority" or "...encryption..." or I need to restart btcync clients/computer? So theoretically, should I expect similar transfer speeds to that of explorer transfers? I am just trying to set a bar. I will go through with the speed profiler and post results.
  12. Hi there, I am trying out BTSync as the means to synchronize my NAS with another Windows 7 computer on a LAN. I have a very simple gigabit network setup: Router - switch - Win7 PC (bittorrent ver: 1.4.93) - Synology NAS (bittorrent ver: 1.4.83) DHT, Relay, Tracker, LAN broadcast AND Encryption is disabled on both ends (no encryption setting on NAS) So far, the max transfer rate I get is 9.9MB. I tested on a 10GB file. is that considered good? I can get 20MB - 100MB if i transfer the same file between the two via explorer copy. Any pointers? Thank you!
