  1. Does anyone knows if this issue has been solved in newer versions of Resilio? I evaluated V2.3.? some years ago but couldn't get it to work properly due to the reasons that PCman describes above. When an updated file was synchronized from one server to another it was first copied to the .sync folder and then moved to its final destination meaning that it would not inherit the permissions from the destination folder but rather keep the permissions of the .sync-folder. For this to work in a setup with many subfolders with different permissions a sync task had to be created for each i
  2. Just realized that sc.exe doesn't work if the exe wasn't programmed to run as a service (which BTSync apparently isn't). As has been explained early in this thread the trick is to use srvany.exe (found in the Windows Server 2003 resource kit on Microsofts homepage, it works also with newer versions of Windows) Use "sc " to create a new service that launches "srvany " (e.g. sc create MyService binPath= C:\Windows\System32\srvany.exe DisplayName= "MyService" ) Using RegEdit : create a "Parameters " key for your service (e.g. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MyService\Pa

  4. Reviving this thread since it seems as if a built in solution for runing BTSync as a service still is missing. I need to start BTSync as a service on Windows Server 2008 where normally no user is loged in. My plan is to use sc.exe (included in Windows) to create the service and as far as I understand the command should then be: sc create BTSync binpath= "C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync\BTSync.exe" start= auto This creates the service but it is not started. When I try to start the service from the Windows "Services GUI" I get a message saying: "Windows could not start the
