  1. Good question! I had copied that from a guide, and didn't even notice it was btsync rather than rslsync. Think that makes a huge difference? I didn't set a storage path. Not sure what it is defaulting to as it starts as soon as I turn on my Pi because of the systemctl daemon scripts. But that is a good point! My Sync folders are huge, but don't change often. For example my Apple Photos library is all kinds of crazy, but it changes a few times a month. Are there any ways to limit how Sync stores things in RAM? I don't need it to be fast, I just want to know it is backing up occasionally. Any recommendations? Thanks,
  2. Hi, I recently purchased Sync Pro from Resilio, but it seems to be having issues on my headless Raspberry Pi 3 backup server. My setup is as follows: Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian Jessie Lite Resilio Sync 2.4.1 for Linux ARM During the install process, I've created the following Sync configuration file: { "device_name": "Raspberry Pi Backup", "listening_port" : 0, "pid_file" : "/var/run/", "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, "webui": { "listen" : "", "login" : "admin", "password_hash" : "MY_HASH_HERE" }, "recv_buf_size" : 64, "send_buf_size" : 64, "max_file_size_for_versioning" : 250 } I've successfully synced a few folders, but now the process seems to die about midway through new folders. The only way to get it back is to reboot the Raspberry Pi because restarting the process asks for a Sync id again rather than using the already existing id. I've read in the forums that Sync has some issues with memory management. Does this mean Raspberry Pi devices should not be used? I thought NAS drives have low memory too, so how come those work? Any information would be helpful. My goal here was to back up the various directories in my Mac user directory to the Raspberry Pi. Thanks,
