  1. Hi, I made one small tweak to my config yesterday and since then, BTSync (latest official Linux version) no longer starts. Systemd kills it immediately, then retries infinitely, failing constantly. The change I made was the download directory for all the folders, from /path/a/b to /path/b. All paths exist and are accessible. The .sync folders are still present (though I did try deleting them all to see if that was causing an issue). Nothing else has changed. I've removed and purged btsync with apt-get, tried a basic config as well as my normal one. I've even tried the standard e
  2. Hi Helen, I've managed to sort it, thanks. Here are my findings for backing things up on debian / raspberry pi. Config Webui and shared folders can't work together, so you can't monitor things in the web interface. To add a shared folder, you need a key which you can generate - then just use this key on other devices. Save the config file with a unique name so it isn't automatically over-written, and make a backup of it in a completely separate folder which isn't touched. Keep it safe! To run this config using systemd, create a new service file. This is mine. Save and overw
  3. Hi Roman, Thanks. Option 2 makes more sense I think. So I took a look at the config and have tried to populate "Shared folders section" without luck. I've used the key for a shared folder from another BTSync instance on another device. Is this correct? When I run BTsync, the folder isn't appearing, so I've obviously done something wrong and I'm sure it's to do with the key. The docs for shared folders in configs is a bit sparse, so would love your help if you get time Thanks Will
  4. Hi, Over the last month, I've had a lot of trouble with BTSync and had to reinstall several times. Each time I've done this, I have lost all the config options (mainly the shares). I'm now on the official debian version, but am confused which config files I should back-up. I want to get to the stage where I can install BTSync on a freshly formatted device, restore a config, and all the old settings and shares are there and working. Can anyone advise which folders and files are essential to be backed-up to make this happen? Thanks Will
  5. Hi, I was pleased to see the official Linux packages release last week, but on Debian Jessie (on a Raspberry Pi), the CPU usage is up above 100% and often 150%. It's unusable. Has anyone else seen similar or knows a way around it, or do we have to wait for the Sync team to do a fix? Thanks
  6. Hi Cipherplain. Thanks. How do you advise I install these libraries? I just ran this command, which seems to suggest quite a few are missing: ~ $ ldd /bin/lslinux-vdso.so.1 (0x7ef0d000)/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libcofi_rpi.so (0x76f9d000)libselinux.so.1 => /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libselinux.so.1 (0x76f60000)libacl.so.1 => /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libacl.so.1 (0x76f49000)libc.so.6 => /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc.so.6 (0x76e0c000)/lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3 (0x54abd000)libpcre.so.3 => /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libpcre.so.3 (0x76d99000)libdl.so.2 => /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libd
  7. Hi there. Did you ever fix this? I've got exactly the same problem.
  8. It's mounted in /home/user/mount_dir/ - not /home/
  9. Update: midway through this post I tried running BT Sync as root, group btsync, and it works. I don't like it, but it works. There is some awful permission-hell happening but I hope this helps someone. Hi, I've spent four days trying to resolve this, and I really am stumped. I can't get BTSync to write to a CIFS mount which is in my home directory, and which is used by various other programs and scripts perfectly fine. What's odd is that when creating a new folder in BT Sync's Web Gui, this is created in the CIFS share correctly, but no files can be synced and it displays the error "Don'
