  1. I really appreciate your help. I had figured out the necessary chmod command and parameters by the time you read the last post, and I have everything working.

  4. I have been running BitTorrent Sync 1.3.94 on a Synology 412+, installed via the SynoCommunity package, for some months without difficulty. With the synology as the central file repository, I've successfully kept files in sync between an always-on MacMini that runs Apple Mail and Hazel rules; and a MacBook Pro laptop, an iPhone, and an iPad. Everything has worked flawlessly until recently, and I can't figure out what has gone wrong. Suddenly I found I was having sync issues with a few of my more-used folders. I deleted them from sync and tried to re-add the folders thru the Synology BTS inte
