  1. And as a PS to those suggesting syncthing, Yes syncthing is great. I love it. I'd have gone there and this thread would not have been started BUT... Google in their wisdom created the GO platform on which syncthing is written. The GO platform prevents syncthing from being able to create folders on SDCards set up as external storage under Android. syncthing blames Google, google says GO is reeeeally secure... etc.etc. This will probably never be fixed without rooting your phone. If the SD Card is set up as internal then yes I believe it works (not tried) but t
  2. Hello once more folks, So being stuck in lockdown my phone has been stuck with me also on the same wifi network for pretty much a week. And resilio has been behaving. No freezes or force closing required. Having read the threads about dropped connections I have a theory (no evidence to present I'm afraid) that resilio gets broken when the phone connects to wifi that requires a signin on a landing page. On my route to work and around that area there are a lot of chains (eg McDonalds, Premier Inn etc etc) with wpa encrypted public wifi access points that then require a login on a
  3. Update as promised, aaaand.... Back to square one. Didn't last a week. So new SD Card made no difference. Symptoms: 1. Notice that some files on another client haven't synced when they've had a day or so to do so. 2. Go to phone and see that sync has no peers for any sync folders when clearly there should be. 3. Go to settings> exit. Sync displays shutdown spinning wheel (forever. Tested 24hrs at least) until the app is force closed or the phone is restarted. As you were, Andy.
  4. Hi @Maniac but did you keep the SD card in the phone? Try removing the SD card from the phone just to eliminate it completely. If sync still hangs then we know for sure its NOT the SD card. Andy
  5. Ok Folks, So an update some 10 months after I opened this thread. I might have found the problem. Jury's out but looking good so far. tl;dr My SD Card was broken. This was a Samsung Evo Plus (not +) 128gb - a pretty high spec card with a 5 year warranty that's not even half way through. So about 3 months ago (note this was still some 7 months after I started this thread) I noticed that the phone in general was less responsive than it used to be and particularly voice navigation commands. Google would take ages to acknowledge and then ages to open up Map
  6. Hi there, My group consists of a couple Lenovo thinkpads running Win10 and win7 and my always on NAS built with openmediavault based on debian stretch. And my android phone of course. HTC10 on oreo. Can't turn off the NAS. That's the whole point of the sync setup. The phone and laptops don't have relationships that share with each other - they all share each with the NAS only. Andy.
  7. Hi @ajp_anton, I just meant that I had to launch it. However I think all the celebrations was a bit to early. Resilio hasn't synced since 9th May. I'm here on the same network as the primary device it syncs with and it can't see any peers. Zilch. And yes, exiting the app via menu / exit results in the shutting down message that spirals forever/ force close/ restart the phone. Longest I waited was 12 hours overnight. Can nobody get a sync app to work? Syncthing can't sync to sdcard (way to go google (pun intended)). Waiting for nextcloud to get delta update implemented the
  8. Hi, Update: Today three days after giving Resilio Camera permissions and it is still syncing without an android reboot. However I did have to open the app to kick it in to life. I was not expecting that denying camera permission would stop the app from syncing! But whatever. It would have been nice for it to tell me. Is there any way of making Resilio sync in the background without me having to open the app on android for a sync to take place? Thanks, Andy.
  9. Hello again, So during a last ditch attempt to get this working before uninstalling and moving on I noticed that I'd denied the android camera permission for the app. For giggles I force closed the app, gave it camera permissions and restarted it. Sync began syncing almost straight away. That's the 1st time I've ever got it out of this hole without a phone restart. We will see how life progresses, but it would appear that if you deny camera permission then it bricks the app. That's on a HTC10 running nougat. Andy.
  10. Hi there, Update: This seems to be happening every day now. Photos I took yesterday had synced after the phone restart but this morning's photos didn't. A quick look at resilio on the phone showed that it wasn't connected to any peers and nothing I tried would get it to connect. A restart of the phone sets of syncing again without any other intervention. I'm not having any other trouble with the phone. No other problem apps. Any ideas anyone? How to go about troubleshooting this? Thanks, Andy.
  11. i will notice after an indeterminate number of days that my Android sync stops syncing. On examination I see that it isn't connected to peers, and doesn't seem to want to try. If I close the app it hangs on exit with a shutdown banner and spinner. Requires phone restart to get rid of the spinner and fix the syncing. All becomes good when the phone comes backup. Htc10 on nougat. The other sync devices are a debian based box and a windows 7 laptop which behave without issue. All devices version 2.6.3
  12. Hi there, So when I right click on a file in windows explorer that is on another box over a unc path eg \\server\share\folder1, explorer freezes and takes up to 30 seconds to return the context menu. It's fine on folders on the local machine. This happens on files hosted either by other windows boxes and by my NAS hosted by debian stretch. Once the menu has been returned after the slow wait, it's good for more right clicks on that file for a minute or so, so something is being cached somewhere, but leaving the folder and returning, or right clicking a different file, or jus
  13. Hi all, I'm on Android Version 2.5.9 (7471) and still this problem persists. I had to rebuild my NAS server - Vanilla debian stretch platform - real basic - samba, Resilio sync, not much else at this point. Resilio Sync version 2.5.12 (1191). The phone is HTC10 running Nougat and the NAS is homebrew on a celeron ITX all in one mobo. Been using BTSync since the early days and life hasn't been the same since BTSync V1.4 which was the closest I've ever been to set and forget. So this weekend I set up fresh sync relationships on both devices to the My Docs, Downloads, DCIM, Pi
