  1. We've been playing with the .syncignore to try and make sure lower rez proxy go first across the network. Once that was done, I need to send the larger files along. It seems that the larger files are not syncing. There are some .!sync temp files in some of the other computers on the network, but largely they haven't sent and it the application reports that these people are fully synced. I'm at a loss as to what it could be. We are having to Zip them up and use Aspera to seed people the files. I'm working with our artist in Boulder who is having this problem. If he deletes a folder it will delete it off the master share. Working through this a bit. If he deletes a folder, and it removes it from the share.. I can put it back from .syncarchive and it will start up the sync with him. It's all confusing because some files just aren't going and I can't seem to 'refresh' the sync to tell it to look again, and sync up. Restarting does nothing.
  2. We are working on sending proxy versions of our full sized files. They are placed in the sync hierarchy, but are not syncing. Our main file type is .DPX which is cumbersome, so we want to send something smaller and compressed through the line first. With the current build, it doesn't seem to want to see the new half rez files that were placed in a nearby directory. It has these files listed in the transfer queue to each of the machines that are on the share, but it wont send the files along. I have open up the file permissions in case that was a problem, but still not seeing a change. Any help or suggestions would be great. EDIT: didn't look like the supporting file structure was in place or something. More had to be updated in order for those to Sync. Problem... solved?
  3. Where is this magical syncignore list located? It's a very specific naming scheme, so it would be easy to ignore that file. Nevermind. Found it. Will report back after trying it.
  4. Hi all, We have kind of a serious issue with Sync. Our working folders for our VFX compositing package write out a new autosave every 10-90 seconds. On Windows it appears that Sync 'locks' the file which makes the autosave throw and error to the user trying to work. Is there a way to tell Sync not to try syncing this file type/unique name identifier? Maybe not lock the file down while it is being read by Sync? I'm not sure what the answer is, but it is making it difficult on the most useful feature of the software. Thanks.
