  1. Use selective sync. It will only sync files that you have selected on the phone, but the rest will be available on other machines, if you will need them. You can sync to SD card just like other folders, nothing special needed. When setting up a sync, select a folder on the SD card.
  2. Note that besides pausing each folder you can pause the whole program. You can do that in the context menu if you right click the Sync icon in the Windows taskbar.
  3. Hi again, so this is what I have done. 1) I have created an encrypted folder on the computer. 2) I have added this folder in rw way to the phone storage folder where the photos are. 3) I have added this folder in encrypted way to the public server that is always online. So far it works for me. However, it's not perfect, because it's not really a backup, but both way sync. That means I can't delete (or move) photos from the computer and still keep them on the phone, which kind of sucks in the long term. A possible solution for deleting (moving) photos from the computer would be selective sync on computer, but then I have to manually click on every new photo if I want it downloaded, which is less than perfect. Any other ideas?
  4. I have just tried it with the second phone. This phone has no internet access. I have created a hotspot on it and connected both the first phone and the computer. When both were connected, Resilio started syncing right away. Frank Maier, thanks for the solution!
  5. Hi Frank Maier, thanks for your explanation. That could be the reason why it's not working the way eltopo described it. However, is it really true that the phone doesn't make a network? I have used another software to sync files in this way: 1) the software on the phone creates a hotspot, 2) the software on the phone sets up a web server and offers selected files on it, 3) the browser on the computer connects to the hotspot on the phone, 4) the browser on the computer connects to a local IP address and downloads the files. So would it be a solution to use another phone for creating a hotspot and connecting both sync phone and sync computer to that network? Would it work or also not?
  6. I have used Google translate for your question. I think you should have no problems with the licence after you reinstall the system. You just use the licence the same way as you did the first time and all should work fine.
  7. Hi, eltopo, thanks for your reply. I have checked and I have "Search LAN" enabled on the phone and on the computer for a specific folder, but the peers aren't discovered and the files aren't synced. What could be wrong?
  8. I'm at a location where I don't have internet connection. However, I want to sync files from my phone to my laptop. I can create a hotspot with my phone, but since there are no trackers, the devices can't find each other. Is there a way to use sync in this scenario? Thanks for any ideas!
  9. Great news! Long live Resilio Sync! :)
  10. That's bad news. Since the services and relay servers are still working, what's the worst case scenario here?
  11. Hi all, Since Dropbox isn't available for more than three devices I'm working on using Resilio to backup the photos from my phone. If I use the standard 'backup' option, then backup works fine. However, the folder that is created is 'standard folder'. With that folder I can't put it on the public server. I'm not sure if it's possible to create advanced 'encrypted folder' the same way with Android app photo backup feature. I would need an encrypted folder because I want to sync to a server that's always on and I'm not the owner, so the contents should always be encrypted. Is there any other solution? Thanks for any help, hint or idea.
  12. @Timbo, do you think Resillio will pull the plug and kill Sync? I've seen the mention of Sync being abandoned on other parts of this forum too. I'm worried and there's no reassurance from the company.
  13. I was also looking to find a provider for this purpose. I have found some, but they are quite expensive. https://www.feralhosting.com/wiki/software/resilio_sync There are also some articles of using Amazon cloud, but I have never tried. Have you found any other provider?
