  1. @mr.canada I am using Sync on two Macs, each running 10.12, and one Windows 10 computer with the most recent major update thing. It's the Windows client that causes the most problems, and I suspect that it's something cross-platform that's the issue. I have made no advanced configuration changes like those you described. I just add the folders and wait.
  2. I have this problem regularly, and often have to delete the Sync DB on the problematic peer and re-add the folder. The problem manifests as status resets to syncing the entirety of the Sync folder, and one peer always fails to ever complete syncing, hence the delete-and-readd. Over and over and over. Sometimes it just stays on all the files needing to be synced, and sometimes it then switches and says it is downloading 1 file forever.
  3. @RomanZ @Helen I am on a 2010 MacBook Pro, 2.4 GHz C2D, 8GB RAM. macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on SSD, while 348 GB Sync folder is on separate, internal HDD. Not only does WindowServer regularly use 20% + CPU while Sync icon is animating, Sync itself pegs my processor at max the entire time it transfers files. Why is transferring files so resource intensive? No other BitTorrent application I have ever used has used that much CPU, even while UL/DL at multiple MB per second. Sync is not necessarily "Indexing" during this time, but when it is, my computer is almost unusable.
  4. No, I'm on Sierra. 10.12.5. This has been an issue for a long time, almost ever since I started using Sync, when it was still called BitTorrent Sync. I remember reading a thread, where there was a discussion about how the high CPU usage was caused by the animated Sync icon. Yet the developers haven't changed the Sync icon to not animate while syncing. All it would take is to create a static set of icons for the different states, and the high CPU utilization should cease for WindowServer. This is what other app developers have done, including Dropbox and even macOS itself for Time Machine backups, which used to have an animated icon.
  5. Hello, I have notice that a long-standing issue, where Resilio Sync's animated icon on macOS while syncing causes high CPU usage from the WindowServer process, still has not been fixed. Through Activity Monitor, I see WindowServer using 20–40% CPU the entire time Resilio Sync is sending/receiving. This amplifies considerably the battery drain that Resilio Sync already has.
  6. I have had nothing but problems with the 2.3.x release branch. Every version has had the "indexing forever" bug, with neverending high CPU usage. If I forget to quit BitTorrent Sync when I'm on battery it's drained in no time. The changes made from 2.2 to 2.3 introduced some critical bugs to core functionality, and it makes me second guess my purchase of a pro license.
