  1. HI. After many years of faithful service it seems my trusty old dlink dns320L has finally bitten the bullet and died. so I'm looking at replacement products. got my eye on a synology 216 or 218 i believe it is.. does anyone have any experience with these or any similar products and resilio. one of the things im looking for is something a bit easier to set up than my old 320l was. which is one reason i was looking at synology it seems its pretty much just a case of click and install in its DSM software. so any advice, suggestions, experience or recommendations are appreciated.
  2. I was experiencing this problem as well and had resorted to using alt f4 to shutdown my computers. I did receive an email from Microsoft support a a couple of days ago saying a question had received an update:- Source:- Hope this helps. has worked for me thus far. restarted my computers quite a few times just to test it
  3. Something i'd like to suggest for future versions of sync is the ability to group folders somehow. maybe create groups directly or color code them. In one of my sync set ups for example my network storage syncs my own documents, pictures, favorites, media, and downloads folders, It also syncs my partners documents, pictures, favorites, media and downloads, and our kids documents, pictures, favorites, media and downloads. and even my parents (not very tech savvy so I try to keep there stuff back ed up for when they bust something) it then syncs the dcim and media folder on my android
  4. I do not see a md-refresh-interval in the power settings. What would that option do and could it be added to the .conf file manually. The nas device in question is a d link dns-320l pretty old I believe as you don't do packages for it. So I'm only able to use packages done by a third party and currently 2.3 is the latest. What I was hoping to do was set up encrypted shares for my folders using this device and setting it up away from home. At my parents or something so I have a copy of important data away from home without needing to cough up for Dropbox or Gmail subscription costs.
  5. Ok recently put some new drives in an old nas box I got and upgraded sync to the latest package available on my model currently 2.3. set it up to do my shares and set the usual options folder rescan config frefresh and debug to 0000. after it synced everything left it and later realised my nas was not going to sleep. stopped the sync service to test and sure enough went to sleep after 5-10 mins. started the service and again sync stayed awake for hours. so uninstalled 2.3 and installed 2.2 did all the settings again and the drive went to sleep straight away. is there someth
  6. running anything else? my nas runs a minidlna server which sometimes spins up the drives whenever any dlna device connected to my network is turned on, they will spin down again if not accessed though, I have config save set at 86400 seconds, and rescan tracker and relay set to 300 seconds, my drives sleep normally with these options. if I'm correct I believe "config refresh" is the same as "rescan tracker and relay" depends which sync you're running. (2.2.1 myself) and thus I don't believe config refresh should keep your drives awake. the save might though. although if it is to sd card I c
  7. My folder rescan is set to a day. (86400 seconds) on my nas and have the logs disabled. lets my drives sleep really well. also have my tracker / relay rescan set to 5 minutes (300 seconds) I've found this option doesn't wake my drives. with these settings I've honestly never had an issue with syncs, they're almost instantaneous wherever I am, I can be using my laptop on a wireless network 200 miles from home and sync still picks up peers at home and syncs changes almost immediately with my home nas, perhaps it's something to do with using trackers and relay server options but neither of thes
  8. Also wondering about this, was looking for a way to delete disconnected peers from the list as I've recently changed mobiles and reinstalled an os on one of my pcs, so now have 2 peers i'd like to delete as they no longer exist.
  9. any answer for my earlier question. does the owner need to be online every time a peer connects or just the first time with advanced folders? cheers
  10. another question. based on this extract from the faq "Advanced (formerly known as 2.0) folders are available in Pro only and are designed for sharing and collaboration. Owners of advanced folders can change or revoke access at any time. Only an owner can share the folder, and the device that created the link must be online for a peer to connect." is this for the first time only or everytime? for example if device a owns a folder will devices b and c still sync that folder with each other if device a is offline assuming they have both connected to a previously. or will those devices not sync
  11. I asked because on the devices in question sync is installed via addon packages which can be slow to be updated. things like this. i know sync can be installed via ssh / telnet but i don't know how. this is why I was wondering if a perpetual license would work on older versions. so I could use my perpetual license on my nas until an updated package is available will keep an eye out for updated packages i guess.
  12. Great news. shall definitely be looking to get a perpetual licence for sync. quick question. do perpetual licenses work on older versions of sync? there are a couple of devices around my sync network that install sync via addons and these addons can be a little slow to be updated. think one of the nas devices I keep at my parents as an off site back up, hasn't been updated since 2.1 would my 2.2 identity / perpetual license work on this device? cheers
  13. is 1.4 likely to work on windows 10? if for some reason there's issues will they be fixed? with the free upgrade to windows 10 coming up, just checking if any of my software will have problems. and like many people have said 2.0s subscription pricing model is a big no no.
  14. It really doesnt make it cheaper in the long term. if a user paid for a perpetual license for 2.0. There's a good chance a user may be using hat same version for a few years. At which point the cost for that user would be $40 for 3 years use of software. Where as a subscription plan that 3 years would costbthat user $120. Which ultimately means it costs the customers more money not less. In that time though there may be several new versions or updates added features thats cool but its likely none of those new features or updates are of any interest to many of your customers. In a way it's like
  15. Bit of a work around but can be dome. on pc create a folder and add it to sync get the read write key. turn of the camera uploads on your phone. on your mobile add that key and point it to the dcim folder. et voila. may be alternate ways but this is the method I used on my mobile.
  16. Not really. a lot of people here have said they'd pay for a license if it meant they own the software out right. so where you may have 10k customers out of 100k, you also have a big ass chunk opf that 100k that would pay for a license. thus instead of 10k paying customers you might have 50k paying customers. there's a big loss in potentital revenue. I'm one of those that would pay for 2.0 if it meant I owned it. if 3.0 was good enough I'd pay for that as well, but the fact its only a subscription means i'll just keep using 1.4. which equals lost revenue. and reading the forums there's a lot m
  17. A life time thing would be cool but personally I'd just be happy if the software was owned when purchased and thus would work forever, or the lifetime of your hardware at the very least..... if I then had to pay again for 3.0 or something when I get newer hardware that maybe 2.0 doesn't work with then fair enough. but then I could perhaps pay my £40 for 2.0 and use it for 5-10 years. it's like windows basically. had 98 skipped me, had xp, skipped vista, got 7, skipped 8 and 9 (8.1), might get 10.. lifetime subscription would be cool but I'd be happy with just a paid license and not this sub
  18. Doesn't work like that though. If I did that I'd blow half my devices up. For example I have a media folder, in that folder I have music, films, family videos, holiday photos, baby photo's etc etc. I could in theory simply have 1 share for the media folder yes, but that would kill half of my devices while having my mp3 collection sync to my phone and car stereo is great, syncing the entire media folder and everything in it wouldn't work, I don't need wedding videos and baby photos and a collection of movies on my mobile phone or in my car, my phone is only 64gig, my media directory is little
  19. Personally I have no issue with the price tag itself. I would happily pay £40 for sync 2.0. the biggest thing that puts me off is that if I pay £40 for 2.0 and I don't pay £40 next year or the year after then my software stops working. what they should do imo is sell the software a s a full licencse so you can use it forever, and then either charge for new versions another £40 for 3.0 or offer an additional premium plan that includes upgrades and premium support etc etc. maybe in a year or so when sync 3.0 comes out it has a bunch of features I really am not interested in so I wouldn't buy
  20. What happens if I buy pro, sync a hundred folders, and then then my sub expires? do 90 of these folders suddenly stop syncing or get deleted? personally this is what puts me off a subsctiption model. the idea things would stop working if my sub expired.
  21. @Roman. it is the nas device. if I stop and start the sync service on the nas (withoug rebooting the nas itself) it will find and connect to my laptop. however if I switch my laptop off for a couple of hours and back on, then my nas won't find it again and the service on my nas needs to be restarted. the last few lines of my nas log are as follows:- [20150220 22:43:18.319] Send ping to peer (1074970146925A771F7272D13DBB21CF7FDAD0F1) for share AD896A42F8C6572DA71116B87B522DBFBF72695F: [20150220 22:43:18.319] ping [20150220 22:43:20.359] Send ping to peer (1074970146925A
  22. I think the bigger concern would be if you use a feature of pro and your sub expires. Then you lose that feature. With a owned license that will never happen.thappen.the trade of is that your version may go out of date or need upgrading in future with the release of newer is and stuff. Thats why I think a owned kicense plus upgrade service would be best. People pay price the software is theres. Throw in a yesrs free updates. And then offer a sub sevice for updates atop.after that year. The people can opt to subscribe and always stay up to date but won't lose any existing functionality if they
  23. @RomanZ I believe it to be a multicasting issue as per your info. if the nas is is idle for any length of time then when I turn on my laptop then it will not find any peers. if I then restart the service on my nas a connection will be established between the 2 devices until my laptop once again shuts down or gets taken out of the house. you mentioned sync will multicast for a few minutes after the service is started so I believe this is why a restart works, I believe the problem lies in where sync is supposed to multicast when the network detects a change, It seems either no changes in net
  24. Thanks, device now sleeps with trackers enabled. seems to be syncing better also
