  1. When I'm copying a large amount of files via the Windows Explorer into a Sync folder, every new file that hits the folder will trigger a "File is locked by another application" Windows notification because the file is still being copied... is there an option to suppress those messages? As in... just those messages so other important messages from Sync will still show notifications? They get quite obnoxious when it flies out for every file and I'm copying sometimes hundreds. Thanks
  2. My NAS has pretty much endless storage so I always set the global retention date for versions to 10 years... I can't help but think about how great the ability to designate a specific client as a "version node" would be, where the Archive folders get indexed and any client can then access previous versions of files via their own desktop (right click "View previous versions..." etc.)... often I have to go to the NAS and rummage through folders with huge amounts of numbered versions which is a tedious and time consuming task. Syonology Drive on my NAS has that functionality and it's fantastic.
  3. My setup... (if you need more details, let me know) i7 Mac mini is my "always-on" Sync machine (drive holding all the Sync files is an external USB3 WD My Book in RAID-0 config mode) Two i7 Windows 10 Pro PCs as Sync clients running on dual SSDs in RAID-0 (super fast read/writes) Whole network from end to end is Cat-6 running through a business class gigabit Cisco switch All Sync versions and operating systems are fully up to date The apps in question are some games I have where I set up my own local cloud saves, so to speak, to keep both the Windows machines game s
  4. Been a long time user of Sync and am well versed the software, but up until this point, I've never had a situation like I currently have. I have a directory that that is housing some app files... when the app is open, there are a number of files that stay in an open state as well as lots of deleting files, writing new ones, updating, etc. This is absolutely choking Sync because it can't keep up with the rate of the requests and it's own sync process... the result is the app using the directory constantly giving me corrupt file and missing file errors. I know there is a global setting to increa
  5. Yes, on iOS the app has to be open in order to Sync or backup photos... I think Android can sync in the background, but it's an iOS limitation I believe
  6. How come all my 2.5.9 clients aren't finding the update through the Sync app? I've done a "Check now" on all of them and none of them are seeing it... have a mix of macOS and Windows 10 machines as well as a Synology NAS client
  7. Here's a batch of screenshots I took from my phone using a network utility app while connected to the OpenVPN server I have set up on my network. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BwvXrkoPhpCFamJleEoySGVocUk?usp=sharing Everything in these screenshots points to the fact that the phone can see/ping one of my LAN peers running Sync on port 33545 (, it can even make a direct connection on the Sync listening port!... green lights across the board... but when I open the Sync app with a connected folder with all default options except "Use relay server", none of the 8+ LAN c
  8. And unfortunately, the info in there didn't help, so I'm looking for more people that may have a similar setup
  9. I keep looking, but can't find any info on security when transferring files through them, only that if you can't connect direct, it will use them. I'm on T-Mobile and I read in the Sync help that T-Mobile blocks Sync... not sure if that's still relevant in July of 2017, but I'm assuming it is, because no amount of port forwarding, triple checking firewalls, using pre-defined hosts will let me connect direct while on mobile... tried the VPN route, but I can't get direct connections there either. Does anyone have a link to any documentation specific to what happens when you're going through
  10. Port forward NAT rule added in pfSense, routing any hit on TCP/UDP port 33545 to forward to LAN address Corresponding WAN firewall rule added to allow any WAN incoming on port 33545 to pass to the local LAN address,, of the machine running Sync Machine at running Sync 2.5.4 has a listening port set to 33545 macOS Firewall on the machine has Resilio Sync added and incoming connections set to "Allow" Router and machine have been restarted several times throughout the troubleshooting process The iOS device won't link to the Mac with my license

  12. Have a 1515+ on my network running Sync 2.5.4 and pfSense is showing that it's going nuts making calls to the 169.254.x.x address space (which from what I've read is the address space devices use only when they don't get an address from a DHCP server)... it's definitely Sync doing it on the NAS, because when I stop the service on the NAS, the blocked entries in the firewall log stop... if I start Sync back up, the log entries start rolling in again. I have about 10 computers on my network also running the desktop versions of Sync and none of them make so much noise on the LAN, only the NAS.
  13. Just tried the help on that page and I still don't get the overlay icons... what's strange is, after registering the DLL files per the instructions (I copy/pasted the Explorer URL and DLL file names quoted so I know they were exact) I can still delete those files even after a restart... the documentation says if they're registered, you won't be able to delete them because the system will see them as in use. Screenshot attached just shows registering the one, but I did the x64 and x86 versions.
  14. On all my Windows 10 boxes (6 of them) I've lost all the Explorer icons... I've tried reinstalling Sync and nothing corrects it... I deleted the old 2.4.x registry keys for the ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers prior to reinstalling Sync and it seems the 2.5.x installer is not adding new ones. Anyone else have this issue and know of a way to correct it?
