  1. That's awesome Helen. This update instantly seems to have fixed a problem with one of my folders containing very large files (like in the dozens of GB range), where the folder would be stuck for days at "synced" on device A, as "syncing with 2 mins remaining" on device B, however remaining empty on device B. Best regards David
  2. Also: this message is PLAIN WRONG: The folder is NOT actually removed from all devices. In fact, the folder is not removed from ANY device. The folder will only be removed from within Sync. All physical folders (and files) will be untouched! Please check the naming of stuff and improve the clarity of your instructions!
  3. However, let me express once again that this needs to be changed: I absolutely need to protect the contents of those two source folders named "current" from getting changed by a remote machine on sync. A setting needs to be added to set a folder read-only when adding it to Sync! Thanks for consideration. And by the way: why is a folder that I set to "Read Only" via the above (complicated) workaround BEING WRITTEN to ?
  4. At last, that is some good news, and let's *knockonwood* that Resilio Sync can remain to be awesome this way
  5. While I believe there is much room for improvement in Sync regarding this, I appreciate your concise answer.
  6. So, I'm adding a folder in Sync on my source machine. This folder appears (like all folders) immediately on all my peer machines -- but as Read&Write folder, which I don't want it to. Then I first have to disconnect this folder in Sync on a peer machine, in order to be able to insert the read-only key for this folder there. Only then does the folder act as a read-only folder on that peer machine: This is an extremely cumbersome and unintuitive approach, especially since that folder still appears as a Read&Write folder on all other peer machines, which is a) unwanted and b) even dangerous because it can still be changed or deleted from those other peer machines. Furthermore, I don't want the folder to appear on the other peer machines at all, not even as a disconnected folder. However, it is also not possible to remove the folder from Sync on the other peer machines, because Sync then tells you that "the folder will be removed on all linked devices" (whatever "linked" actually means again, in the confusing and inconsistent wording that you find throughout Sync). In summary, the whole thing is a miserable, cumbersome workaround and needs to be improved.
  7. Pardon? This answer is unacceptable because it is about as unreadable and unintelligible as CPU machine code.
  8. But that folder shows up already on all devices as soon as I create it. Then, when I add it using that read-only link, it shows up twice! That's very confusing, and it's not clear if and how the first instance of the folder can be removed or not.
  9. It should also not say "Read and Write" one one's folders if something else, particularly "Read Only" is not even available. I don't want to share a folder, I want to sync it to my own devices.
  10. Thank you -- but it says "Read-Only" even in your screenshot. However, I suppose that's only working for the link when you share folders with third parties... Too bad that it doesn't seem to be possible to do One-Way sync (among your own devices) with Sync!
  11. Yeah, something definitely wrong here. Sync still looks very much dead, judging from the almost non-existent communication and support. The last time anyone from support staff has posted anything was in June. Both Helen and RomanZ obviously are long gone
  12. Hi, I add a new folder on my source PC and choose "Read-Only". Instantly, the folder appears (and starts syncing) on all my devices -- as "Standard Folder - Read and Write". Why is that so, and how can I create a folder that syncs in "Read-Only" mode, i.e. where it is made sure that the client/target devices can't change the content of that folder? Thanks
  13. Hi, I have the same situation as the OP. I have now added a certain filetype extension to my local IgnoreList. The corresponding files have been synced already in the past. Now I want to delete these files from the local PC, however without deleting them from the remote PC. How do I go about that in order to make sure not to delete the source files on the remote PC? Or should I better add that filetype extension to the remote IgnoreList? Thanks!
  14. Same here. I'd also like to know how to hide folders (of my Sync Pro identity) on certain devices.
  15. So did I and received no reply. So, yes, Resilio Sync is dead. Or heavily restructuring
