  1. Using Sync 1.4.71 on the iPhone, is it possible to set up a read / write sync for the camera? I can do this on Android by manually creating a sync using the camera location, but can't find any similar options on the iPhone. I want to sort through my photos and videos on my desktop computer rather than my phone. I can do this using Android and Sync in the following way. Create a two way sync: Pictures/Camera <--> DCIM/CameraSort (move) pictures into folders using my desktop. Ex.Pictures/CatsPictures/ComputersThis seems to work pretty good on Android. I delete the pictures and videos that are no good and move the others out of the Pictures/Camera folder which causes them to be deleted from my phone. How can I do the same using the iOS version of Sync?
  2. I'm trying to sync an iPhone 4 with iOS 6.1.3 and Sync 1.4.71 to a Debian Wheezy machine running Sync 1.4.93 Beta. I'm using the YeaSoft packages (very nice). However it only syncs metadata, not any actual files. The debug logs on my linux machine have roughly the same entries over and over: [20141022 00:38:45.259] SF[6C9D]: Torrent /storage/samba/btsync/AnnettesCamera/Annettes-_IMG_0046.JPG status:137 error:<NULL> meta:1 conns:1 io:0[20141022 00:38:45.259] SF[6C9D]: Torrent /storage/samba/btsync/AnnettesCamera/Annettes-_IMG_0045.JPG status:137 error:<NULL> meta:1 conns:1 io:0[20141022 00:38:45.259] SF[6C9D]: Torrent /storage/samba/btsync/AnnettesCamera/Annettes-_IMG_0043.JPG status:137 error:<NULL> meta:1 conns:1 io:0...[20141022 00:39:44.332] TorrentFile: unloading torrent by timeout[20141022 00:39:44.346] TorrentFile: unloading torrent by timeout[20141022 00:39:45.638] Incoming connection from[20141022 00:39:45.677] Got metadata size 1474, pieces 1[20141022 00:39:45.678] Got metadata size 1794, pieces 1[20141022 00:39:45.678] Got metadata size 1254, pieces 1[20141022 00:39:45.691] Finished receiving metadata for '/storage/samba/btsync/AnnettesCamera/Annettes-_IMG_0047.JPG'[20141022 00:39:45.692] Finished receiving metadata for '/storage/samba/btsync/AnnettesCamera/Annettes-_IMG_0048.JPG'[20141022 00:39:45.692] Finished receiving metadata for '/storage/samba/btsync/AnnettesCamera/Annettes-_IMG_0049.JPG'Any ideas?
  3. I didn't realize someone had replied to this I recently gave Sync another try and Helen's assessment regarding the media scanner was correct. I'm using Sync on Android right now and the Autoupdate Gallery advanced option looks like it's intended to do what I've asked for here. I don't know if it's working for deleted files though. I just loaded up my camera, took a picture, let it sync, deleted it on my PC, let it sync, and re-opened my camera app on Android. I swear it didn't work last night before I deleted most of my pictures, but today it did (with only 2 pics on the camera). The deleted picture gets removed from the library without a reboot, but the timing leads me to believe the camera app is causing the refresh needed, not Sync. The refresh didn't seem to occur until the camera app was loaded. However, my observation could also be the result of the changes being reflected lazily (ex: deleted or changed files are flagged dirty in the media database and aren't refreshed until an app request them). Keep in mind, there's a lot of assumptions on my part there. I'm using Android 4.4 and I know the API related to media scanning was changed and might impact the way deletions are handled. A few links I happened across while searching for how it works... http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/57913/how-do-i-refresh-rescan-the-sd-memory-in-android-4-4-kitkat http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15147536/how-to-trigger-mediascan-on-nexus-7 http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8379690/androids-media-scanner-how-do-i-remove-files I don't need another reply. I just wanted to clarify what I was asking for.
  4. I really dislike the idea of a global blacklist for API keys. If I'm running a sync network that's exclusive to my LAN, I should be able to do it with the internet disconnected and I should be able to allow any clients I want, even the ones that BitTorrent Inc. might consider abusive. I also think there are some large technical challenges that need to be overcome to make developer API keys useful. See this SO answer for a very brief explanation. Since technically anyone can steal a developer's API key and abuse it, I think it only becomes useful if you're also providing a system that detects abusive behavior. As a developer, I should be notified automatically if my API key is doing something considered detrimental to the system. This should include things that may be the result of a stolen API key. In a centralized system this could be something as simple having an API call using my key, but calling an API function that my client doesn't use. In a decentralized system, I don't understand how you can do any of that though. How do you determine if a client is being abusive? Do you trust reports from peers in the network? Do you test each client and observe behavior? Do you just assume API keys never get leaked or stolen since there's no centralized system that can analytically detect changes in behavior? How does BitTorrent deal with abusive clients (I actually don't know - I don't follow much P2P stuff)? Shouldn't the BitTorrent protocol be the model for dealing with abuse in BitTorrent Sync? And, the most important question, will the API key policy ever change? I'll never buy into a platform where someone else gets to be the sole arbitror of what behavior is acceptable and what isn't.
  5. Hi, I've been trying to set up a simple sync between my phone and my PC. What I would like to do is have my Camera folder from Android sync'd to my PC so I can organize my photos from my PC. I want to delete some photos and move others to a file server (same as deleting). This almost works for me, but when I delete a photo from my PC it doesn't completely disappear from my phone. I have an LG G2 running Android 4.4.2. It behaves as follows after deleting a single image on my PC: If I explore the camera folder via BtSync on the phone, the deleted photo gone.If I explore the camera folder via the File Manager on the phone, the deleted photo is gone.If I connect the phone to my PC I can still see the photo in Windows explorer, but it is corrupted / broken.If I open the Gallery app on my phone, it shows a broken photo for the deleted one.If I reboot my phone, everything gets cleaned up and the deleted photo is gone.I figured maybe something was holding locks on the file, so I also tried closing all apps. It didn't help. Any ideas? Ryan
