  1. hi, So i setup a folder MyFolder on my PC, and then shared READ+WRITE access code to resilio mobile app (twas easier that way since i can just QR scan the code on the PC) NEW FILES on mobile phone side gets sent to PC , but: 1. New Files on PC side not sent to Mobile Phone! 2. Deleted Files on PC side (of files that came from Mobile phone) is not deleted on Mobile Phone! I need 2 way sync, mirroring, type of deal.
  2. Hi guys So I had my Android phone all setup to backup to my PC the important folders, including the DCIM camera folders. The way I set it up was, my PC had a folder dedicated to each folder in my android device that i wanted to backup, and I shared each folder from Android using Sync app and entered the KEY on the PC side. All worked well. But recently got a new Android phone, and I wanted to simply re-establish this Android to PC relationship. Since I already have my PC folders setup, I wanted to simply link them with the new Android Device's folders. Then that's where i hit a stumbling block. It seems that the way Sync is setup is that the DEVICE that will generate the code will be the SOURCE and the device that will COPY the code is the DESTINATION. If I try to scan QR code on my Sync App, the code is READ-ONLY (i assume it means the Android device will only have read-only capabilities and can't write to the PC folders . This made the PC folders the source and the Android folders the DESTINATION.. What am I missing here? or is this the expected behaviour of Sync? The only way I could seem to get around this is if on my PC side, i delete/unlink all folders and just redo them. That means I have to first share the folder on the Android device App, and enter or send the code to PC somehow (so much hassle compared to just QR scanning the code on the PC side of this setup. So is this really how sync works? The device GENERATING the code will be the SOURCE and the device COPYING the code will be the DESTINATION, and there is no way around this? can anyone confirm?
  3. doesn't need to be installed as fact it's not service on all my machines, including master.
  4. hi Guys Why is it that on some of my computers i am able to use Resilio's windows native GUI and on some computers when i launch Reslio it forces use of browser GUI by popping up browser window which is quite annoying. How do I stop it from forcing me to use browser instead of the navive UI?
  5. I have turned off all firewalls on desktop, so ports are not blocked for sure issue 1: I can't find the on app. so can't do much on that end I did try to add predefined host entry on desktop, and that worked. my phone and app now syncing. Issue 2; my phone is on dynamic IP DHCP from my wifi router, and this is not a solution. Isn't sync supposed to find each other on local network? i have my uPnP enabled, all firewalls off on desktop .
  6. ok i will but can you please save me effort to verify first 1) does both device have to be set to relay and tracker off for this to work? or is it ok that one device is set to purely local (my mobile) while my other device, the desktop, still has tracker and relay server on?
  7. ok so i truned of relay and tracker, now desktop sync doesn't sync .. checked and zero peers detected. can't connect. .. turned off desktop firewall to be sure.. still no go. any ideas?
  8. helen, this one was correct "open Sync Settings -> advanced -> power user settings and you'll find relay and tracker settings there as well....... " thankyou!
  9. I created Picture Backup on my Mobile phone and entered the share key onto my desktop... it started syncing automatically! isnt't here supposed to be a confirmation on the phone side? to accept the new peer?! This is so insecure...
  10. hi gane, i was asking about how to do this with mobile device. the app doesn't seem to have the tracker and relay settings.
  11. Hi guys, i'm in an environment where there is no internet connection. Only wifi for internal network. How can i make my android device backup to my desktop computer using resilio sync, WITHOUT needing internet connection?
  12. Hi Guys I wanted to create a backup of my Mobile Phone, the Android's DCIM folder. In this are the default android folder for my Pictures, as well as other folders automatically created by apps like facebook , my drones, etc etc etc.. On the Resilio app, i went to "ADD BACKUP" then chose "Custom" folder location I went into the DCIM folder and pressed "CHOOSE FOLDER" I got a prompt that said ------ Backup "DCIM" /storage/emulated/0/DCIM This folder will be added as backup folder. ------ I clicked "ADD" then Resilio added a backup folder named "Camera Backup" There's also no way to change this folder name once the backup folder has been created. annoying as hell. So now I end up with a DCIM Backup folder named "CAMERA BACKUP" which is very misleading I tried to reinstall resilio sync and resetup, and the same thing happen I also tried adding a different custom folder from my android device called "my downloads" and boom, REsilio Sync added the backup folder with name "my downloads" it seems Resilio Sync has a mind of its own and will name my DCIM folder as Camera Backup .. Annoying. how can i correct this?
