  1. I am having a few problems syncing to my family's computer (both systems are Windows 10 Pro 1809, Sync Home 2.6.3). I don't have the exact wording of the errors, but it involves the time difference between systems to be greater than 10 minutes, and several of the files are being marked missing or broken suffix file. For the first issue I have check the time zone settings on the computer and they are correct, as is the time, but the error still pops up 2-3 times a week at random. The second issue I can't figure out at all. The files are in a .7z and they work perfectly fine on my end. I have tried removing them and replacing them, and I get the same error. I have also deleted and recreated them so they are completely new and still get the same message. Other 7z file sync just fine. I could use some help figuring these out. Another issue I am having is, very slow connections speeds. Both systems are on fast internet but I regularly max out with 200 KB/s. There is no limit in Sync, the systems, the router, or from the ISP. In the past it synced around 1-2 MB/s. The connection also seems to be hit or miss. Some days it doesn't connect at all, which I think is connected to the time difference error. I could use some help figuring these out. Thanks in advance.
  2. I am having an odd problem with Sync version 2.0.85 (Win 7 Pro 64 PC to a Win 8.1 64 PC). I sent a client some files that were compressed in a multipart 7z archive, and they seem to have received a corrupted part. When they went to extract the files, two of the them would not exact. I have seen this happen before with bad FTP connections so I asked the to give me check the CRC for the files and the 7z part. 7Zip listed the files' CRCs correctly, but the part itself had the wrong CRC. I tested the file on my end and had no problem. I asked the client to delete that part so the new one would resync, by Sync still considered both sides in sync. I tried renaming it, but nothing more happened. I finally created a new archive with those files and that worked. A few days later same thing happened with different files. Having used torrents for years, I would have expected Sync to notice the mismatch and corrected the mistake. The debug logs don't show any out of the ordinary and I can't figure out how to reproduce the problem. This is clearly a bug that needs squashing, or a feature that needs to be added for all users, including the free ones. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
