  1. I've installed btsync on my WD MyBookLive and it's sort of working. There are a couple of problems here and there, like the ampersand issue in my other posting. It's a great produce - definitely better than what WD has done in their WD My Cloud app but I've decided to stop using btsync for now and I have deleted all the .sync and archive folders that were created by btsync. I would like now to remove btsync from my NAS so that these .sync folders don't get re-created. Could someone give me the instructions to remove btsync from my NAS please? Thanks KB
  2. Quick update to all readers. The ampersand is a bug. RomanZ has confirmed it in another post.
  3. Thanks RomanZ. Hope the ampersand gets fixed soon. I need some of those folders in my iPad. When there's a new release of the btsync, do I just copy over the binary file to my NAS and run the chmod and /./ commands after ssh-ing into the NAS? Or do I need to remove the existing copy of the btsync first? Will the removal also remove the record of what I've already synced? Sorry for the barrage of questions. Very grateful for the application. Thanks again for the reply! KB
  4. Thanks GreatMarko. Good to know it can be done. Is there a more detailed guide as to how to do it? I'm quite an idiot with Linux. How do I give that listen command when I'm in the office in another network?
  5. The web gui for the NAS is accessed using the url localhost:8888 when my Macbook is in the same network as the NAS. Then I add folders that I want to share. Let's say I'm now in the office. I want to share a folder in my NAS with my iPad. This folder was not added to the list earlier. How do I access the web gui to add this folder when I'm outside the network that houses the NAS? Is it possible? KB
  6. I think I found a bug. I found that Add Folder will not open the subfolders in main folders with names like Rock & Roll and Tour & Travel Destinations. I think it has to do with the linux command. I understand that "&" is a linux command. I'm guessing that when the Add Folder function tries to open a folder with an "&" in it, it somehow interprets the "&" in the folder name as a command, and stops there, without opening the subfolders under that folder. I now cannot access the subfolders to add them for syncing to my iPad, no matter how I click or double-click the folde
  7. I discovered something common about the three folders: they all have an "&" in their folder name. For example, "F&B", "Textile & Fashion", "Tour & Travel". I think this is the problem. Folders with "&" in their names will not show their subfolders. I tried other folders that have "&" in their names and subfolders, the same thing happens: the subfolders will not show. I have no problems with folders with long names or with many subfolders as long as the main folder does not have "&" in its name. Once a folder has "&' in its name, the Add Folder action will not
  8. I gave up on WD My Cloud iOS app since it stopped syncing folders. Glad to have found btsync for Linux systems. Managed to get everything set up and started syncing folders from MyBookLive to my iPad. Have a couple of issues which I hope to get some help with. I don't know Linux at all, so it took me a whole day to set up the btsync with my NAS and MacBook and iPad - thanks to the many detailed instructions provided by members here. I have two problems: 1) How do I sort the order of the folders after they have synced to my iPad? It seems that they are ordered in the sequence they were adde
