  1. lol checking that box fixed it. Embarrassing... Thanks!
  2. The button "Get Started" when entering computer name when launching the program for the first time is greyed out. The text entry box starts with red edges, but changes to blue after I enter a few characters. But the Get Started button stays greyed out so can't click it, and enter, it does nothing. Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit, latest version of Sync. I tried both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
  3. The latest Android app update has better support for devices with no camera according to release notes. So I scanned the QR code from my Walkman using my Xperia phone. Now both my Walkman and desktop app show the Walkman as green and connected. But I still can't get past the welcome splash screen on the Walkman, as it just asks to link an existing user or make a new one.
  4. I have Sync 2.0 set up on Raspberry Pi, transferring files to Linux Mint also running 2.0. When I delete files from Mint directory, the files are not moved to Archive directory on the RPi, and are transferred again to Mint. I guess the workaround is to delete them on both locations at the same time. How can I fix this so it works properly? Worked fine with the same setup in Sync 1.x.
  5. I have a Sony Walkman NWZ-F886, which is an Android device. After installing, I get the screen asking me to connect to an account or start a new identity. When I tap on the connect, nothing happens. Starting a new identity goes to the next screen, but I don't want to do that. Is this possibly because the device doesn't have a camera? Sync prior to 2.0 worked fine with the Walkman.
  6. I'm running the forced 30-day trial, so I believe I should be using the Pro version. I can't find an option to disable automatic sharing of folders, only that they are added in disconnected state by default, which I have enabled.
  7. I shared a folder in 2.0, which showed up and synced on my other 2.0 devices, except for one. I added that same folder manually on that machine, and now it works, also. Is the end result the same when sharing folders manually vs automatically on 2.0, or is there something I should be wary of?
  8. Sync 1.4 worked fine without having to muck about with permissions, but 2.0 gives Don't have permissions to write to selected folder.error when adding folders. I presume this is due to different way to handle permissions between the versions. I'm quite unfamiliar with Linux permissions, but I guess I could set Sync to run as root, but that would be a rather big security risk. Another option would be to add Sync to a group which has access to said folders. Any suggestions on best practices?
  9. Thanks. I already had uninstalled it, and re-installed using the link provided by WilliamL, and it works flawlessly.
  10. I copy the key starting with M from my unRAID box 2.0 client from "My Devices", "Link Device", "Link a desktop device manually", and paste it into the "link device already running 2.0" under "link a desktop manually" prompt on my Linux machine. The key is the same as on my Android and RPi, and it should be, reading the link you provided. So I think I've been doing it right. I successfully linked my RPi using the above steps, but the Linux client refuses to go past the "connecting" window following the same steps. Tangential topic: the terminology Sync is using is vague and inconsistent with previous versions. "Key for linking devices" starting with M is more like a (public?) encryption key or (public?) identity, rather than a string to link files or devices like it was in 1.4? Why not call it (public/private) user identifier, then? The Android tip worked, thanks! It takes a good minute for the list of devices to show up, and I didn't know to wait for that. A prompt saying "updating device list" would avoid this oversight. While I'm at it: back button doesn't work properly on Android client, and Sync stops Spotify intermittently. edit: nevermind. After restarting, the Linux desktop link worked Thank you, Helen!
  11. I have successfully upgraded my Linux Mint desktop, Android phone, unRAID box and RPi to Sync 2.0, but am having trouble linking the devices. First, when I scan the QR code on my Android phone, I get the following error: Both devices are already connected to a user identity. To connect these devices with a single identity, you must first disconnect one of them. You will lose access to all folders (except classic folders) and all linked devices on that deviceHow do I disconnect devices in 2.0? Also, when I try to link devices using the alphanumeric string given by Sync, my Linux Mint desktop doesn't go past "Connecting, please ensure the other device is online", although the other device is online. File syncing works fine with my RPi using the same exact alphanumeric string on the same LAN. In general, the upgrade/installation process of 2.0 is quite complicated, and if I'm to pay close to 40 EUR a year, I expect a much smoother user experience.
  12. I have 1.4 up and running on my RPi. Should I uninstall it and install 2.0?
  13. Does Sync 2.0 work with unRAID? I'm eager to upgrade and support the project, but my NAS of choice is unRAID is not listed on the official list of NASes.
