  1. @Kinst Do a google search. It depends on what you have at home. If you have a proper router, you can map a dynamic DNS to your dynamic IP and then activate the VPN Server on your router. If your router doesn't support this, you need some extra device. And to clarify it: Yes, Resilio Sync doesn't need a VPN. It either tries to create a direct connection or, if the ports are blocked, uses a Relay Server.
  2. It has a GUI and I set up everything using this GUI. It was much simpler than setting up Syncthing. I don't get what you're missing.
  3. Using a VPN tunnel to your home machine this will be possible.
  4. It's a one time thing? You have two folders, which you want to keep in sync, but at the moment they are out of sync and now you ask for a solution, to bring them in sync, so Resilio Sync can keep them in sync in the future? Use a third part tool, like FreeFileSync, select both source and destination. Let it compare both folders and select the desired action (copy, remove) for each out of sync folder pair. Then let it run. Afterwards set up Resilio Sync on both source and destination to keep both folders in sync in the future.
  5. Regarding USB Drive: Just test it with a second USB drive and a new dummy share to see what happs Archive: https://connect.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001291284-Understanding-Archive- https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/204754239-Using-Archive-for-file-versioning-and-restoring-deleted-files-
  6. Removable Drive: Just test it. Deleting accidentally: No way to prevent it. It's not a backup, it's a real time sync. However, Resilio Sync does not delete the files, it moves them to the .Archive folder, inside the shared folder, first. After 30 months or some other period, which you can define in the Power user preferences, it removes them permanently. Still, you should have some sort of backup, too. Some kind of automatic incremental backup. Take a look at Duplicati or alternatives.
  7. Resilio Sync already just uses 324MB memory on your NAS. That's not really a lot nowadays. The processes seem to be child processes and don't consume 324MB each, but together they share the memory to my understanding. Of course, your NAS just has 512MB, but that's just not anything usable to begin with. Even a low end Raspberry Pi 3 has 1GB RAM. (which might be even a better NAS for you, than your low end Synology, which Synology specific features you might not even use, just an assumption.) In the linked post the user Helen describes one simple RAM calculation and a way to temporarily reduce the RAM footprint.
  8. How many files are you syncing? Supposing there's no bug, Resilio Sync will work on those machines, if you don't sync too many files. But in the end, the DS218j is still a very slow NAS and maybe not the best choice for such tasks. Totally different idea: The two Synology NAS most propably have a Synology App which does keep several Synology NAS in sync (some kind of realtime rsync), why don't you use this app, to keep both NAS in sync and only run Resilio Sync on the faster NAS?
  9. Your're comparing a 512MB low power NAS with a 2GB+ mid power NAS. Resilio Sync requires lots of RAM, there's nothing to fix, except to run it on appropriate hardware or reduce the amount of synced files:
  10. How do you intend to to solve conflicts? Like, you deleted "wonderful.jpg" and just a minute later you created a new one, called "wonderful.jpg". You also don't solve the problem of file corruption. Like, you created a "wonderful.jpg" image, and, accidentially, overwrites it with a blank image. The image is gone, no backup. So what you want is a backup, not a sync. Or in Windows you could additionally use something like File History.
  11. Not as a service installed, pressing View Archive just opens the Windows Explorer. Most probably it's not possible to launch Windows Explorer from the webbrowser, thus it's not visible.
  12. So you tried to SSH to your NAS? Then research where Netgear stores the apps and navigate to that folder.
  13. Same problem, Samsung Galaxy S9. Instead of rebooting you "just" have to force stop the app from the app settings in Android. Then open Resilio Sync again and it fully works again. I suspect it's some kind of aggressive sleep mode implemented in Android, but other apps are able to still work, even after several days, so Resilio should be able to fix it, too.
  14. Create a second identity and manually add the folders with the share key. Problem solved. You don't have to make everything complicated. It also does not make sense to hide folders on the same identity, that's against the purpose of the Pro license. It also does not work, because who defines which folders are visible or not, thus you need some kind of master installation which handles the "rights", which is against a p2p concept.
  15. have you removed the app from both NAS? What NAS do you have? Can you ssh to it?
