  1. Not all folders sync'd

    This is very weird. I have sync set up for five folders between two machines. Since I'm in China, it is very difficult to connect to the tracker even with proxy. However, one of the folders seems to be able to find its peer in most cases, while at the same time the other four folders cannot. The preference settings for these five folders are exactly the same. The only difference is that that "miracle" folder was set up about two years ago, while the other four were set up more recently (probably less than a year ago). Any idea of what's going on?

  3. proxy for tracker and update?

    I just managed to download the new version from the website and now sync can access the tracker server without any problem. But I'm still curious if a separate proxy can be set up just for the tracker server.
  4. Is it possible to set up the proxy such that it is used only to access the tracker but not to access the peers? My network has no problem access peers but has a hard time to access the tracker server. Another possibly related issue: I cannot update sync even if the proxy is set up. The error message is: cannot connect to the update server. I guess either the update server has been down for the past few days, or sync does not use proxy to access the update server, or (less likely) the update server has banned the few proxy servers that I have tried. Please help. Thanks a lot.
  5. It is a standard folder (I don't have Pro). Yes, they have different IDs.
  6. I wanted to share a folder from computer A to computer B via BT Sync. Here is what I did. 1. I added the folder to BT Sync on computer A. 2. Since the folder is really large, I pre-copied all the files to computer B. 3. Before I connected the two folders on the two computers, I did some change on computer A. The changed files had newer modification time, so I supposed that they would be copied to computer B once they are sync'd. 4. I created a link in BT Sync on computer A and opened it on computer B. When prompted to enter a destination folder on computer B, I selected the pre-copied folder. After the two clients finished sync'ing, I found that the changed files on computer A were reverted back to the old version. I wonder if this is a bug or intentional for some reason.
  7. Sync Status In Ui

    Here is a figure showing what I mean. http://postimg.org/image/eowfmnbt1/
  8. Too Difficult To See Sync Status

    Yes, I'd also like to see this feature in Windows OS.
  9. Sync Status In Ui

    It would be great if the UI can show the sync status of each folder, i.e., sync'd with how many peers and to upload to or download from how many peers. Right now I have to click the option of each folder and then click peer list to see the status. I guess simply copying the status icons in the peer list view to the main UI right after each folder would be sufficient. This can be useful in two senarios: 1) to know when I can turn off my computer without leaving some recently updated files unsync'd; 2) to know when I can work on the files that are sync'd.
  10. Desktop notifications

    Thanks. Such an option would be very useful.
  11. Desktop notifications

    Is there any way in Windows OS to make BT Sync show pop-up notifications once any files get synchronized? I see a "show notifications" option in the preference, but I do not see any notification regardless of whether the option is checked or unchecked. I have BT Sync installed on three machines, one with Windows 7 and two with Windows 10, and I'm having the same issue on all of them.
