  1. Also, what does "Revert All" or "Ignore All" mean? In another folder, I am getting the "XX files are out of sync". I think this is because they were deleted in the read-only folder, but they have also been deleted (intentionally) in the source folder. Shouldn't Sync see that they have been deleted on both sides and be OK?
  2. Hi all, I recently changed backup plans and have a huge amount of data that I needed to sync with an offsite machine, that had previously been syncing my old backup files. I have an external hard drive, so I carried the data to the offsite machine and copied the files manually. However, I had some trouble when turning the sync back on. I was getting errors that the files were out of sync, and they weren't showing up in the folder like they were supposed to, and Sync just started downloading the files again like they hadn't been pre-seeded. I played around with it and finally got it working, but I'm not sure what I did. Can someone help? When seeding the folders, do you need to copy/paste the entire contents, including the .sync folder? Also, even though I got it working, I have a message that some files are out of sync on the destination machine. If I just copied and pasted the files from the source to the destination, what does this error message mean? Do I ignore or revert? Thanks,
  3. Hey all. It would be great if Resilio added an option that allowed me to send a link or key to someone that is not a Resilio user that allowed them to upload a file or folder to me one time. I realize this would require some sort of web portal interface that they would upload their file to, so it may not be what Resilio is interested in.
  4. Skip down to the bottom if you don't want this background information... What I am wanting to do is use resilio to act as my offsite backup storage. I have people who will store my backups on their machines, and I will store their backups on my machine. I have used Crashplan for years, which has this feature, but Crashplan is shutting down. Since my data will be on someone else's machine, I need to use the encrypted folder option. And, since I don't want my friends/family to accidentally delete the backup file and therefore delete all the files at the next sync, I need to give everyone a Read Only key. However, since we are talking about lots of data on the initial sync, I am wanting to seed the backup first. Is it possible to pre-seed the data on an offsite encrypted read only folder? If I just take the data to the remote machine and transfer it manually, it won't have gone through the encryption process, so I'm worried this won't be possible.
