  1. That is a good point. This did not (aq32 description 2 above is very good) happen in the previous build. For me that was 1.3.77. I may go back as I still have the installation file. So some thing changed between then and now.
  2. OK RomanZ. I don't know if this will help you out. I am fairly sure that when my folder with the database that went corupt happened when I move my Mozilla profiles into that folder. Most likely the e-mail Thunderbird as it was a lot to index and well e-mail files are chaning all the time. Bittorent sync was I am fairly sure the cause of empty folders popping up in my pop mail accounts popstate-dat(1) and can be a number. Also empty folders like nstmp.sync! I created two copies of the same proflle one outside of the sync folder and one inside the sync folder. The one outside produces no empty folders. The one inside still does. I just delete them. The e-mail program causes most of the locked files as when I close Thunderbird the locked file count down goes down. Right now that folder is set to read/write. Bittorent Snyc 1.4.103
  3. Yes I understand that usually "No peers online" means no peers online or some sort of communication issue. I don't think that that is the reason this thread was started or the reason for at least a few of us having this problem.It seems to me that there are some knowledgeable people that are having the problem and they can rule out a connectivity problem. In my case, the peer to peer is computer to computer hardwired. As I have already said, I have other snyc folders that are syncing to the same peer computer and are not having trouble. It was only one sync folder that was not syncing and saying "No peer online" when obviously connectivity was not the problem. I deleted the database for that sync folder. BitTorrent Sync rebuilt the database. That folder is now syncing without a problem. It is an n=1 solution right now. It would be interesting to see if other people with the same problem do the same thing and get the same results - a fixed sync folder. I did not have the debug log on. I have it on now, but everything is working and syncing. What message does BitTorrent Sync give if a synce folder's database is corrupt? Databases can become corrupt.
  4. Yes, that is a better way. Future releases could have a button that you press to rebuild database or reindex and/or even fancier if the program notices that there is no peer online for a certain period of time it rebuilds the database itself.
  5. Ok so I corrected my Thunderbird popstate multipling clearing both sides of the sync folder. I don't think it is the probelm of "no peers online" though it could have initially caused the problem by corrupting the BitTorrent Sync database. The no peers online seems to me to be connected to a corrupt datsbase for that folder. You can follow my instructions in the prior post. It doesn't really matter if you rename them old and delete them latter but it is safer. BitTorrent Sync will rebuild any of the database for sync folders by reindexing them so even if you delete another BitTorrent Sync database file for a folder you are not having problems with it will just rebuild that database files. Remember it is two files per sync folder. Each peer has it own database sync files (2) per BitTorrent Sync folder so you may have to try a number of delete database files/reindexing but I would go one peer at a time. This problem happens with another program I have a small database file gets corrupted and everything stops working. Delete the database file. It rebuilds and the program works fine. Someone earlier wrote this: "With respect to not seeing the option to overwrite changed files, you have to go to the folder line and left click on the three dots to the right, then the preferences come up, and you can check the box for "overwrite changed files". That option is not on my menu in any loaction currently using BitTorrent Sync 1.4.103 The locked files. I am currently running windows backup on to a external hard drive and it seems to be locking up a majority of my locked file in BitTorrent going from anywhere from 13 to 26 changing. At times BitTorrent says "out of sync" the popup says "no peers online" but when a file becomes unlocked BitTorrent sends so I don't know if there is a problem there just seems to be a delay in syncing.
  6. This may help. I got the no peers online with one of my large sync folders even though I had other sync folders that synced to the same peer and were working fine. I got it working again. First exit BitTorrent Snyc (right click tray icon, click exit in the menu) then go to C:\Users\"your user name"\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync and you will see database files with long string of numbers and letters followed by .db. There are two per sync and the files have the same string name. It is hard to pick out which folder they are related to but in my case I picked the one with the largest file size as my problem was with the largest sync folder. I rename the two files with old in front in case I needed to put them back. Restarted BitTorrent Sync and it started rebuilding the data base for this folder and then started syncing with the peer. I went from 12. 6 GB out of sync to I still have locked files. When it finished syncing it will say out of sync so many locked files and no peer online but when I create a new file it syncs it. The problem of not syncing with a the peer I know is online I think started with BitTorrent Sync interaction with my e-mail program. I use Thunderbird for e-mai. I moved my Thunderbird profile into this folder everything was syncing fine with BitTorrent Sync but my pop Mail address in Thunderbird were having a problem they created popstate-"number".dat folders everytime I opened Thunderbird. This problem recured when I started the database but it could because the folder is read write and I picked up my backed up file problem from the peer. Popstate is Thunderbird's database file for keeping track of pop e-mails one for each account. I went into the folder and deleted some popstate.msf files and cleaned up the profile and that I think Is when BitTorrent Sync stopped syncing because this folders database became corrupt. I also think read/write designation of the folder in BitTorrent Sync is playing into the problem. I have a bunch of Idea to work my way out again but I have to find which will work before posting again.
