  1. I feel the same. 2.0 doesn't seem to work. 1.4 didn't completely work with out of sync problems, but the crippleware feature added in 2.0 is not good. I can understand charging for support, but the limits are too basic where it is not going to be usable. I thought this was more of an open source project and that is why I supported it. I agree, I would consider jump ship and sideline this until better solutions came out.
  2. So I upgraded to sync 2.0. I couldn't get the syncing to work with 2.0 and 1.4 intermixed. I decided to try to wipe out all existence of 1.4 peers, and use purely 2.0. First, I can't find how to share keys in an internetless environment, but that is not the big problem. I was trying to clear up all the connections -- I thought I was "disconnecting" from my peers. I had setup a "master"/"slave" setup where the Desktops on the laptops to act as a master, and then had a few lab systems act as ReadOnly sync copies in case the laptop got stolen or lost or crashed. Well, due to the upgrade to 2.0, my syncing would not sync, so about 10 days goes by and I noticed no syncing activity going on. I decide to "disconnect" -- or what I thought was disconnecting, and I see some question like if I wanted to delete the files. I'm thinking, that the laptop Desktop is the master, so BTSync would never just "delete" all my files. To my horror, 125GB of data just disappeared and my desktop was clean. Why in the world would anyone actually want to delete all their files? My 1.4 synced still existed, but since the syncing wasn't working right, the synced backups were about 10 days old, and lost 10 days of work that was on the laptop. How in the frick could this be soo easy to delete all my files on my master system? I couldn't believe that is what it was asking, and no idiot proofing of this was done. I and my other fellow idiots need this second question "Are you REALLY SURE? WARNING this will delete all your data" type warning. Call me an idiot, but I should be protected from myself from deleting my master files. it was too easy. I spent like the last 24 hours trying to recover using unerase tools (which suck, so not all my database or video recordings reconstructed properly).
  3. Hi. I use to use BTSync 1.4, wasn't perfect, but I finally got into the groove and it generally synced things despite leaving a few orphaned files. I decided that I'd finally move to the 2.0 and hope that everything is fixed. I switch to BTSync 2.0, I can't find the "view keys" options. I can't find the official documentation, so I'm here on the forum. It looks like the "view keys" option has disappeared. how does one share a folder when there is no internet in the lab? I use to use the "view keys" option in 1.4, and copy/paste the RO or RW keys. Help. I've upgraded, and I can't get up.
  4. I am confused how the new 2.0 shares keys when the systems are in an environment without internet connection. I use to use the RO/RW keys in 1.4, and I can't seem to find this in 2.0. In an environment without internet connectivity, how are we supose to give access, are we supose to use the link as the key?
  5. I am unable to send the logs due to it being a production system and references to files of confidential nature. I see 3 files on the win7 side. it appears that the ubuntu fileserver is happy, but the win7-desktop thinks it has files to sync. Here is the log version: 1.4.83platform: Windows workstation 6.1.7601 amd64[2014-09-24 11:47:43] total physical memory 4170080256 max disk cache 33554432 [2014-09-24 11:47:44] Using IP address[2014-09-24 11:47:44] Aes BCrypt algorithm provider has been loaded and initialized[2014-09-24 11:47:44] Loading config file version 1.4.83[2014-09-24 11:47:45] SF[878F]: Loaded folder \\?\C:\Users\XXXXXXX\Desktop[2014-09-24 11:47:45] failed to set IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP for -1[2014-09-24 11:47:45] failed to set IP_ADD_MEMBERSHIP for -1[2014-09-24 11:47:55] NAT-PMP: Unable to map port with NAT-PMP.[2014-09-24 11:48:38] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:48:46] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:48:46] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:48:49] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:49:28] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:49:38] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:49:48] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:49:58] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:50:08] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:50:19] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:50:29] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:52:24] Changing IP address from to[2014-09-24 11:52:45] Changing IP address from to[2014-09-24 11:52:45] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:52:45] Incoming connection from[2014-09-24 11:52:47] Incoming connection from on the unbuntu-14.04 side I see the following types of messages in the log where fileXXX is the file that shows up on the btsync-win7 side.

  6. I'm seeing the same problems. orphaned files and no way to remove them or sync them.
  7. Hello, I'm syncing win7-x64 "Desktop" folder using btsync-1.4.83 to ubuntu-14.04-server x64 with btsync downloaded at the same time. My next test was to disrupt the connection and resync rw copies. I found some problems when multiple nics exist on my win7 laptop. I got a workaround to turn off all the nics except one and exit and restart btsync. this seems to make it so that btsync is not waiting endlessly and not finding it's lan peers. I've got the select boxes set to not use the internet (deselected relay, deselected dht, and deselected tracker) I switched my test over to syncing a RO copy from win7 laptop to ubuntu server. I let it sync about 80GB and removed the laptop after about 50% of the data was synced. I reattached the laptop for about 6 hours (upon reattaching the laptop to the network, i stopped and restarting the btsyncs), and it says 1 of 1 peers on the right of the line, but still tells me that "No peers online to receive ... GB" on the left side. I've attached an image of this message. But while it tells me there are no peers to receive, it also tells me that it is sending and receiving data at the bottom of the window. The syncing eventually gets near completion, but it says there are 3 files left. I closed all apps to make sure non of them are Locked. 1 of the files no longer even exists on the Desktop system, so why is it still on my list of files it needs send, and two seemingly arbitrary files are still listed and never sync. I'd like to eventually have it tell me that I'm in sync, so I know it is OK to disconnect, but not sure if those files will ever disappear. Is there anyway to clear those files? force a "i'm in sync" status. I can manually copy those files or something if I have to, but Bittorrent Sync doesn't seem to clean this up itself.
  8. I'm also seeing an out of sync with a read-only share. It was running fine and then hours later, it is now out of sync. I'm trying to debug this, and I see the "/.sync/Streams - error 2". What the heck is an error 2. are these error messages in some document somewhere?
  9. I'm trying to debug why my peers are not connecting. Sometimes they do, and then when I come back, hours later, they are disconnected. I see a peer "testhost1", but they don't see each other. I've narrowed down the problem to an issue with multiple nics on the systems and which IP they are binding to, but I can't see what IP that Bittorrent Sync belives is that of the peer on the peer list. It would be nice to make that information visible to the user
  10. I'm also interested in finding out more too. I've got a couple similar issues: I've got a win7 laptop that I'm trying to sync with a ubuntu fileserver. The laptop has multiple NICs (wifi, and Gigabit Ethernet). I'd like the syncing to occur through either nics, but my scenario is further complicated. Sometimes I enable routing through my laptop. There is a bug with win7 routing where it doesn't play well with the wifi, so I hook up a hardline through the GE port and routes out through my hotspot. In this scenario, I find out my laptop IP changes from 192.168.137.xyz to My fileserver stays constant at 192.168.137.zzz. When the laptop is at the syncing is happening fine, but when I turn off the hotspot routing and the laptop GE nic changes IP to 192.168.137.xyz, the fileserver doesn't find the laptop peer irrespective of how long I wait. I'm taking a guess that if I originally installed bittorrent sync and somehow it bound to my .xyz address, then it wouldn't work correctly when my laptop operates with the .1 ip address. This problem took me days to nail down, but for some reason the win7 laptop btsync is bound to my address, and when windows changes it to 192.168.137.xyz, my ubuntu peer can no longer locate my laptop. It sure would be nice for bitorrent sync to somehow tell me which interfaces it is playin with, because it isn't going through the stack and binding to all interfaces evidentily. I also see similar problems with ubuntu. If I install through the apt package manager, I'm evidently asked which port to bind to eg or an external IP. If I download the app directly from this website, there is a ./btsync app with no installation, and it evidently binds to only for the gui, and if I try to access it remotely, it says "connection refused".
  11. Getting API key Last Updated: Jun 13, 2014 09:22AM PDT In order to use the BitTorrent Sync API, you'll need a special API key. Fill out this short form to get your key. Make sure to include a valid email address and accept the terms and conditions of using the API. You’ll then receive an email with all of the info you need to start coding. Clicking on the "short form" link goes to a 404 Error.
  12. I've turned on debugging and I am not able to debug further. Is there a page describing how to be able to get more information as to what is going on? I can't get my peers to detect each other, yet I can connect between them using other apps. I can't really find anything useful in the debug logs to find out why I'm having this problem. I'm using the latest 1.4.83 on Win7-x64 with a ubuntu-14.04-server-x64.
  13. So I created a win7-x64 "Desktop" folder on my laptop, started syncing it RW with my ubuntu-14.04 server x64 ext4 fileserver. That goes all well. I take the laptop containing "Desktop" folder out of the network, come back home at the end of the day, and expect it to sync back with my fileserver. I expect that there should start a resync quickly, but it never syncs back up or recognizes each other. laptop is using DHCP, but I am guessing that wouldn't matter. options are setup such that only LAN connection is ever used (and does not utilize the internet (relay, tracker, or dht). I can't tell if this is a bug or a "feature". I can't locate more documents on how to debug this thing. help. I'm using the latest version that I downloaded a few days ago.
  14. Hello, 1) I've got the "Store deleted files in folder archive" selected, but i'm low on space and is there an ability to throttle how much GB or number of days is stored. My understanding is archive is stored 30 days. I'd like to say like only use up 1GB for archive space, or throttle down to 7 days of backup. 2) Can I just delete files in this archive with the delete button, or are the existence of the files tied to some .sync* file needs to know it was deleted. I'm afraid I'll corrupt internal mechanism and screw things up. 3) When the file is deleted, all the peers delete the file, but does it also store the deleted copy on all the peer's archive folder, or just on the system the file was originally deleted from?
  15. Hello, I'm somewhat of a newbie, so I'm not sure if it is a bug, feature, or I'm just doing it wrong. I have laptop, and add a Desktop folder. On the fileserver, I add a read-write key, and all is fine. it syncs etc. I then disconnect the folder on the fileserver and do stuff like a reboot. then I try to reconnect the fileserver with the same read-write key, I get a complaint that the folder is not empty. It is what I expect so I don't have to resync the whole thing again. The two folders never sync and the laptop Desktop folder keeps changing. The laptop reports 0 of 1 peer. I go to the fileserver, and it has a different read-write key (NOT the same one I used to connect it). So I can't get the two folders to re-connect to each other. The only other option I could see was to create a real empty folder and have BTSync re-copy everything. I think that would work, but my data was almost 100GB, and why recopy all that when there is a perfectly good copies on the fileserver? HELP. I'm expecting the fileserver to have the same read-write key that I entered, but it doesn't so they never sync.
