  1. The sync app crashes after a while on QNAP devices. You have to manually stop the app and start it again, via QTS web App Center, then it runs for a few days again, depending on how many files have to get transfered. For a permanent fix, you have to alter an app setting via SSH, then it's running fine forever. This is done in 15 minutes and for me it worked.
  2. Sync is not a backup. So what do your really want? You can't sync to a cloud service, except you host the cloud. Resilio Sync must be installed on the target.
  3. I don't see how it's possible with Resilio sync, for some reasons. 1. You don't seem to have a backup. Now it's time to invest some time and money to create an automatic daily incremental backup. Tools like Duplicati, Duplicicty, Veeam Backup, ... might help you. With a backup, this requirement becomes needless. 2. I don't think this works. 3. It might work if you don't use the backup function on your smartphone but the normal sync function.
  4. That's not Resilios faults, did you use the correct passwort (it's not "admin" !!! if you use the latest QTS version) after the 3s reset which your probably did?
  5. Your NAS is too slow and has too few RAM to run Resilio Sync. Get a more powerful NAS.
  6. It's very simple. Go to the QTS Webinterface, open the App Center, stop Resilio Sync. Activate SSH on your NAS, install Putty, enter the IP of your NAS, Port 22 and press connect. Enter as admin. Go to the normal shell. cd /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/ResilioSync/ There it is, edit it with vim resilio-sync.conf Press i to enter the INSERT mode and edit the file. Press ESC to exit the mode, type :wq to exit and save the file. Restart Resilio Sync from the App Center. The solution from Resilio seems to have it solved for me,
  7. Resilio Sync discovers other peers through multicast. So I suspect, that in your configuration mutlicast is not working. (or you have multiple NICs and Resilio Sync uses the wrong one) Nevertheless, because you only have two computers connected, you can specify IP adress of the other machine: Predefined hosts:
  8. It's about the importance of the bugfixes. I'm annoyed by meaningless minor single bugfixes. Just collect them and release an update with several bugfixes. Timbo listet a few, so it might be worth. But some of them are odd complaints: @Timbo NAS and RAM: I don't see the bug. I just see that a user tries to run more demanding software on some vastly underpowered device. I also run Resilio on my NAS, no problems, but I have 16GB of RAM. I only know that my AV Scanner (ESET) causes issues while network traffice, but not Resilio. I also don't understand how it should affect it. And freezing the PC up more looks like some hardware/driver issues of the NIC and/or mainboard. Maybe a simple solution could be to delay the transfer. I don't have 10Gbps, only 1Gbps, but everything is fine. No freezes. (except with the AV Scanners firewall) The sync conflicts, peers stuff, I had these issues in the past. All of them got fixed with the latest updates. Did you send them your recent bug reports? Debug and SSD. What's the problem? The lifespan of a SSD should be enough to survive constant logging, which is helpful to find bugs, something you want. Debug reading: That's why you send them your bug reports via Resilio Sync. I have 5 Windows devices in sync and 2 Smartphones (sadly the Android app really does not work properly) and no further issues so far, with 0.5TB of data and about 200k of files in sync.
  9. I'm annoyed by constant updates of modern apps and programs. They add a simple feature and think it's worth an update. Next day, the feature gets fixed, next update. Next day, they fix a spelling error, update. Next day they change .... update update update. Each week every program thinks it must get updated because of nothingness. That's stupid! In this way, I'm happy, that Resilio Sync works and does not release constant minor updates. Resilio could release an update, just for the sake of an update, and lots of people would be glad to receive an update. They don't care what got fixed, they just want an update. Just think about this nonsense!
  10. Same here, I also tried the new build. After several days (or maybe just hours), the app won't work and you can't close it. You have to force stop ist and restart the app. It should be fairly easy to reproduce for the developers.
  11. @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.
  12. 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.
  13. Using a VPN tunnel to your home machine this will be possible.
  14. 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.
  15. Regarding USB Drive: Just test it with a second USB drive and a new dummy share to see what happs Archive:
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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:
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. So you tried to SSH to your NAS? Then research where Netgear stores the apps and navigate to that folder.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
