  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. @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.
  5. 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.
  6. Using a VPN tunnel to your home machine this will be possible.
  7. 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.
  8. 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-
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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:
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. So you tried to SSH to your NAS? Then research where Netgear stores the apps and navigate to that folder.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. have you removed the app from both NAS? What NAS do you have? Can you ssh to it?
  19. You have a low end NAS with a very slow CPU. NAStester seems to test with large files. So most NAS are able to achieve 100MB/s. On the other hand, small files reduce the speed drastically. You could test your transfer speed by copying lots of small files, I doubt you get anything above 20 MB/s. Can you take a look at the CPU usage. I suspect your CPU is the limiting factor. Resilio Sync does not simple copy the file in bulk, but splits it up in multiple parts, has to verify the correct transmission, ...
  20. Neither of them will properly work with Resilio Sync. The two main ready to use NAS suppliers, which deliver fast and versatile NAS are Synology and QNAP. QNAP tends to offer NAS with more powerful hardware, to connect it to a TV and use it as a multimedia station. Synology tends to offer products which resemble more with a server. Both of them offer low cost products, like the 216 or 218. They have A low power ARM processors, which are specialized. This means: They are slow as general purpose processor, but optimized for specific use cases, like network. So a NAS with a ARM processor is mainly a fast NAS, not more not less. Both Synology and QNAP also offer higher priced versions using x86 processors from Intel or AMD. They are faster in general and more versatile. Such NAS support virtualization, so you could install additional operating systems on them. They also support more apps. The biggest advantage in your case is, you can upgrade the RAM in these NAS. Resilio Sync needs both a fast CPU and lots of RAM (depending on how many files you have, +8GB is ideal). Both the 216 or 218 have way too few RAM. Resilio Sync will struggle or fail at all. So my advice: Buy a Synology or QNAP. Select one with an Intel or AMD CPU (in the low cost region only Intel versions are available) and try to upgrade the RAM to at least 8GB.
  21. Normal sync of the config folder, no selective sync. Selective sync is kind of weird (special) at first in Resilio Sync and I don't see a use of it here here. And then use the IgnoreList to ignore specific files or folders in the synced folder: https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/205458165-Ignoring-files-in-Sync-Ignore-List-
  22. You don't create a local network by creating a hotspot with your phone. The phone just shares its internet connection with the connected devices. What you need is a true network between the devices, done by a separate mobile access point.
  23. I don't understand your problem by managing the files on the NAS for all users. As I understand you want to create one folder for each user: /home/<user>/ResilioSync So all you have to do is create this folder on each client, install Sync on each client, upgrade it with the license key and create an indivdual account for each user. In the end, you have four independent users, which share the same license but don't see each other. Then, each user has to create the share key and you add it to the sync installation on your NAS and link the folder to its correct path. That's it. That's done a single time and you won't have to touch it again. On your client you only see the shared folders of your account and don't see the folders of the others. On the NAS you see only the folders, which you added manually with the key. In theory, you don't need a license at all for this, if you don't use the pro features (Advanced Folder, Selective sync). It's like 4 independent Resilio Sync people use a fifth user (NAS) with which they share different kind of folders. The alternative is to run Resilio Sync for each user, so each user has it's own Resilio Sync instance. If it's worth the trouble, I doubt it, especially, because in the end, you're the one who takes care of the NAS and you're the one who will have to fix it, if something is broken. So in the end, you also need to have access to the instances. It's just complicated.
  24. Resilio runs the Tracker and Relay Servers. If you licences Resilio Connect, you can run your own servers. However, Resilio Sync works without them, too. You don't have to use them, you can disable the use of them. Without tracker servers, you won't be able to find other devices with a dynamic IP however. You can only 'see' the IP of connected devices. You won't be able to see my files or my devices without my key.
