  1. Actually they're not the same, one is a Cloud based solution (with 3rd party involvement), the other is a P2P based one (no 3rd party running costs). The only thing to consider with P2P based solutions are development costs for new software releases, so the 'subscription model' (usually best represented when providing a SERVICE) make little sense here.
  2. Is the time stamp of a file affected by Time Zone on file systems? Surely BTSync should be time zone independent and sync when the file is created in real time, not based on time zone/file time-stamp... ie Create a file in USA PC (timezone PST), sync'ed within 1-2 mins on a PC found in UK (timezone GMT).
  3. maybe its me but your responses reek of sarcasm? I'm already using a NAS for mirroring remotely, that wasn't the reason why i posted...sync is sync, its not restricted as you have defined it. Perhaps BTSync has these restrictions (thus the OP), but certainly not by any definition of "Synchronization". please lock this thread or delete it.
  4. Hi there, I want to sync 2 folders on the same PC (mirror them, they're on 2 different drives) however BTSync wont allow it. I get the error "Selected folder is already added to BitTorrent Sync." Is there a way to mirror sync 1 folder (which is actually on another PC) on 1 device across 2 or more target folders on the same device? if not, why not? are there any reasons why BTSync restricts this? (before I bother making a 'feature' request ;P) i don't see it as a problem, considering there are many sync programs that already do this, as long as your not syncing the same folder on the same folder structure (sync itself with itself on itself ) I'm using the the latest 1,3,106.
  5. Here is the "Remove Sync folder" option (right click menu on the path/folder you want to remove)
  6. The AppData folder was only present on the 1st (source) Remote PC, not the 2nd remote/local PC nor the NAS. I sent the logs to the email address for the Remote PC. I decided to re-install BTSync & generate new keys on the remote PC that was causing the issue, and re-permission the BTSync folder to allow it to be run as a service (re-permissioned it before to allow this, otherwise it uses the /user/appdata/roaming/ folder to store its data, which is useless for a non-login service), and now it seems to be working ok so far except there is only 1 (legit) file left to sync showing on the 2nd remote PC AND the NAS, yet on the 1st remote PC it all completed! I also found a backup .syncignore file on the remote PC - I presume it was from a BTSync update but was identical to the .syncignore file since I already edited/updated it again. There seems to be some kind of failure when a file sync fails - the re-requesting devices (target devices) show 1 file remains to sync, yet the source device shows all sync's are completed. Possibly occurs when a connection drops from the source PC - while re-setting up the remote PC its connection dropped a few times (probably ISP related), however BTSync on the remote PC (source PC) assumed the sync succeeded on that PC, but clearly not since the NAS and 2nd remote PC still say there's more to sync. Folder re-scan 600 (10mins?) seems to do nothing to correct this.
  7. yes, but it makes no difference. Here is the setup: Remote PC (data mainly used/changed/updated and .syncignore file doesn't seem to ignore the files on this PC) <-> NAS (backup, has same .syncignore file) <-> 2nd remote/local PC (minimal/little updates, it has same .syncignore file and not suppose to have Remote PC ignore files/folder) I have it running as a service for only 1 user on the Remote PC (BTSync config/cache files are located in the c:\Program Files\BTSync\ folder and read/writeable by BTsync all ok), and I have the 2nd remote/local PC running the app as normal (atm) in the icon tray (BTSync config/cache files are located in the C:\Users\*****\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync\ folder) The original screen-shot is from the 2nd remote/local PC. I've re-synced (removed/re-added, re-edited the .syncignore file) on all devices, with no luck, the 2nd remote/local PC still has that list of ignored files/folders from the Remote PC. Imo, those files shouldn't even exist in any BTSync client (or even be checked for anything) since they're suppose to be total ignored from the source (ie Remote PC) to start with. I can't tell what's happening with the NAS, its GUI info is too limited (it may have NAS speed implications). As you can tell, I don't want the AppData folder shared amongst PC's since both PC's have different Apps installed on them, so I'm just syncing the data files (favs, documents, pics, vids, contacts, music, etc..), but using 1 share only, in conjunction with the .syncignore features. The 2nd remote/local PC logs are being hammered with the following, repeatedly for all the AppData files: [2014-07-23 **:**:**] SyncFilesController: failed to load torrent for file "\\?\E:\BACKUP\****\Julie\AppData\Local\******\*********"[2014-07-23 **:**:**] TorrentFile: Failed to create empty suffix for file "\\?\E:\BACKUP\****\Julie\AppData\Local\******\*********"" - 3 I'll see if I can get any Remote PC logs soon, since it seems to be coming from that PC and not the NAS (there are no NAS queue'd files showing on the the 2nd remote/local PC, it only shows the first Remote PC has the queue).
  8. The syncignore file has been there from the start so I'll just try re-adding the folder, otherwise I'll send the debug logs.
  9. I have AppData folder in the SyncIngore list on all PC's (I've tried variations \AppData\*, AppData\, AppData, etc.) but it seems BT Sync still Sync Queues this folder. It shouldn't even bother looking in this folder - esp from the PC that has this folder (which has the ignore). As Shown here: Shouldn't it just ignore the AppData folder on the remote PC (its in the SyncIngore file on that PC)?
