  1. Yeah, I tried it already with the --priority=high argument though. I misunderstood it and I should've used low priority. Now it asked me to enter the rescan interval. So the problem seems to be resolved. Thanks!
  2. Ok, thanks. That worked fine. When starting btsync via /etc/init.d/btsync startit gives me [ ok ] Autostarting btsync instance 'debconf-default':.Sounds like it always uses the default debconf settings instead of the settings I set up in the settings. dat file. So I tried changing the default debconf file (even though it clearly says I you shouldn't do that, as it will reset itself after an update) and it works. Btsync stopped indexing my files all the time. But how can I make this permanent? Is there a line in the startup script I can change to use the settings.dat instead of the debconf default config file? By the way, logging works now, but doesn't seem to contain any unusual activity as far as I can tell...
  3. I installed this and now it updates and starts automatically. No separate config file I start it with. I just tried to locate the *.db files (like in windows?) and couldn't find them. That is the folder I should put the debug.txt into, right? You should really embed a lot more options in the web UI!
  4. This is the content. It's two days old?!
  5. Ok, windows works again. But the sync.log file doesn't seem to collect any data. Still only 1,4kB. I created the file debug.txt containing the string FFFFin the .sync directory and rebooted. Is that correct?
  6. Ok, what is the unit of log_size? Is ./ settings.dat set log_size 500correct? Also, my Windows btsync just started showing a blank window (IE11 and everything). :/ Getting tired...
  7. Thanks! It ran successfully. Viewing the settings.dat file now shows the value I entered (I tried 43201 just to be sure it took the value). But after a reboot btsync still rescans the folders every ~5 minutes. I can hear my drive spin up and btsyncs shows "Indexing" in the status column. I have 9 folders (all on the external drive) with about 190GiB of data. Btsync appears to always begin indexing with the same folder of 130GiB but then indexes other folders, too. There are no system files on the drive so it must be btsync causing it to spin up. Also it starts to show "Indexing" right when it spins up.
  8. Ok, I think I got my interval changed to 43200 seconds which is half a day. At least the settings.dat file that I just found shows that. But even after a reboot btsync is constantly indexing all the folders, never letting my external hard drive spin down. I can't sleep at night! Any idea?
  9. And is there any way I can keep my current Web UI settings and just change that single parameter? Can't be that hard to accomplish...
  10. But my btsync is fully configured at the moment via debconf. Can't I change only this parameter now without losing all my other settings? Starting btsync with a custom config file makes it use completely new settings.
  11. But I don't want to have a completely new configuration of btsync. I already have it configured via the web interface and only want to change that single argument 'folder_rescan_interval'.
  12. Hello, how can I set up a config file under linux to change the folder_rescan_interval? First dump a sample config file with btsync-core --dump-sample-config and then? I still want to use the web interface. How can I set this file as the default config file? Or is there any other way to change that interval? Kind Regards
  13. Where is the log file located in linux? It doesn't seem to be in ~/.
  14. Hello, I also did the mistake and updated to btsync1.4. I have btsync running on 2 Windows devices, one android phone and my raspberry pi. One folder is synced between 3 of those devices, including the raspi. The web interface of the pi shows a data transfer rate of a few bytes up to maybe 10kB/s. Another folder says it would be sending data but it looks like that for 2 days now. All the permissions are alright and it worked with btsync 1.3, so... What can I do to resolve those probems? I know I didn't provide much information, but what else should I say? It's just not working. And I am using btsync for maybe a year now, so I am quite used to it. Thanks in advance!
