  1. I've seen several threads here, but wanted to add mine. I've been using Sync on 5.1 and previous on several rooted devices with the ExtSD write fix patch to sync my music and pictures. It's been great. But lets just focus on the music since it’s been a static set of files for quite some time. 826 files, 3.7gb. I've recently upgraded my LG G4 to Marshmallow and after the fact I find there is apparently no ExtSD write fix for 6.0. I don't expect that to stay the case, my LGOG e970 with NitrogenOS MM 6.0 Rom can write to ExtSD as always. Pretty sure I was running Sync 2.3.4 at this time. I've been trying to use Sync on my G4 periodically since the upgrade with no luck at all. After the upgrade the ExtSD path had changed so all of my sync folders were broken. At first I tried to remove them and re-add them one by one with the new SAF "ON SD CARD". That was extremely slow and not very responsive, Frequently it wouldn't accept clicking "Add folder", it would just sit there like nothing happened. This was without deleting the ".Sync" folder. So I stopped trying to add the rest of my folders again and just let it sit for a day or so to index. Updated to Sync 2.3.5 which claimed fixed getting stuck indexing on SD Card Folders continued to index. I think it was making progress. The file count in details was increasing, across a day and a half I index 250ish files.... That's insanely slow. Clears data from Sync and started over with a clean folder. Sync still says indexing, transfers have started, details reports size 1gb. But it seemed to be stuck there. I chose to “Exit” sync from menus, and it appeared to shut down properly. After restarting Sync, it listed “Database Error” next to my folder. I chose Exit again, then started to work on this post. I reloaded Sync to get some of the exact working of the buttons and labels and now it back to indexing. The Database error fixed itself? And suddenly the folder size is reporting 2gb (427mb synced). 445 Files (101 synced). It’s seems to me like it’s not even getting/processing the full file list. I also just tried removing the folder and reconnecting with a folder “ON PHONE” and while the file list seems to download within 10 minutes, the transfer has stalled out at 318mb and reverted to indexing. Details reports the proper 826 files 3.7gb. On my other devices the peers listing shows the G4 as offline. If I cycle wifi on the G4, for a moment it shows on the other devices as online and sending. The G4 peer list shows receiving, but the folder list still says indexing. Before I could actually post this the internal storage has finally decided to work. Music is has finished transferring to internal storage.
  2. I have had great success in the past, but am currently experiencing very slow download speed on Sync (Android) over my LAN! (6.4 kb/S max, it seems). I have one synced NAS attached via ethernet cable to router. I have 3 windows PCs synced connected via Wifi, all fully synced. In the past, I have had very good download speeds via Wifi to my android device (Dell Venue 8). I recently wanted to "reset" my sync so I erased the sdcard, uninstalled Sync, and reinstalled and reconnected Android Sync via QR code. Now my max download speed to the Android device is 6.4kB/s! Previous download speeds were up to 2MB/s. Where should I be looking to figure out where the bottleneck is?
  3. Hi, I'm having an issue with a folder syncing music files between two laptops, two desktops all on Sync 2.3.3 and two android devices (phone Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 5.0.1 & tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab S running Android 5.0.2 and Sync 2.3.5). I have MP3 files on a desktop, that I want to be able to play on both android devices, and have access to i.e. change/rename/move on the other desktops and laptops. Currently they are in a folder named Sync Music and all the devices above are linked, I have paid for a pro key. The problem is that on setting up they synced up fine, but intermittently the phone is losing files, they are staying as 0 byte placeholders but in some situations this is deleting from all devices (I have them backed up so its not an issue, just annoying and worrying for other stuff that is synced which is backed up but not every day, although this currently is not synced with the android devices), then it says it is sending the files to the phone but never actually completes the sync. This folder is not set to selective sync on the phone or any of the devices, I have deleted the whole file and started again on more than one occasion, and also changing all the other devices to stop syncing until I had it sorted, which I though had happened as all seemed to be working fine, but as I checked again this morning, as it indexed the number of files dropped and half are now missing. On this occasion although Sync thinks there is half the files there some of these 'missing' files work fine and some do not, and most still seem to be present on the computers. I tried to share the QR for read only when setting up this file but I assume as it is a linked device it still says 'owner' or 'read & write' depending on the basic file type regardless of which key I have used. I suspect what I will need to do is unlink my android devices and then simply share the file as read only when they are unlinked, or is there a different/better way?
  4. It seems that the sync from my Android tablet is pretty slow about 300K-500Kb , where other time it was about 2-4 Mb, network / router is the same if i remember well there was an update and previous version have better performance , any idea?

    BTSync LogCat

    Is there a way to tell BTSync (Android) NOT to log its stuff at all? The BTsync logcat is overwhelming and even if filtered out in my Eclipse's logcat console, it bogs my 6-core 12gig ram machine down significantly. Since I am using this tablet for my own Android development, I need to use the logcat console. But the BTSync logcat is not only slowing the device, my entire desktop Eclipse ADT gets bogged down. I am 100% that it's the BTSync app. So, back to the question: How do I tell BTSync Android app NOT to log anything. Thank you much. nat
  6. Hello all, the android app seems to stop syncing if the app is not open after some time (couple of minutes). Is this behaviour normal? I would expect to keep syncing the files in the background. Thank you
  7. Hello everyone. I just started to play with sync and I wanted to ask for advice on the right way to perform the following task. I have a phone and tablet. Both have the same android version 5.0 and they share manufacturer so the folder treeis practically the same. For example I want to sync in both devices the /DCIM/ folders where I have store some photos. I "create" new folders in the android app to link these folders to my desktop and now I have: /Desktop/default/folder/DCIM/ /Desktop/default/folder/DCIM(1)/ It is not really annoying but I wonder if it could be possible to change this to somewhat like: /Desktop/default/folder/Tablet/DCIM/ /Desktop/default/folder/phone/DCIM/ From what I have been reading so far in both windows and android devices you can link a given number of folders in one device and all these folders will go to the default folder in your other device. My issue is if you have more than two, devices how can you handle change individually the default target folder to keep it more organized and to avoid conflicts (well I think there are not conflicts because sync will add (number) to your folder). My apologies if I wasn't clear enough.
  8. I'm trying to sync my music from my computer to my phone. Previously this worked when I synced to internal storage but I need the space so I switched it to external SD (Marshmallow 6.0). I have all the read/write permissions set up properly and I am rooted, but the receiving speeds fluctuate from 3 MB/s to 2 kb/s so I can't just wait this out as it would take ridiculously long. Also, the blue loading bar on the files never actually fill, they stop at 99% and discontinue any progress before moving onto another file. and when I browse the folder, they are still .bts files: Is BT Sync just entirely incapable of properly writing to external SD cards?
  9. Thanks for a great product. I have search for an answer to my question with no luck. What is the difference between how Sync and Backup behave in this product? I found this thread where others want to know the same thing. Thank you.
  10. Peer: Android 5.1 Beta. SD CARD. Peer: Windows 10 Desktop. Mostly syncing ok. But I have folder(s) that won't sync on the Android, but the Android Sync app knows about them and allows me to sync 'manually'. Details. On the desktop, I copy about 30 files into a synced sub-folder. On the Android (even days later) they DO appear BUT ONLY in the BTSync app, as NOT Synced. Why? How do I get all the files, to appear in my standard Android file-explorer? I don't want to manually tap each file (in the BTSync app) to have it sync. I want all peers to sync without the need to open the btSync app. Am I missing something? Thanks nat
  11. Hello guys, I'm trying to sync a folder from pc to my phone (sd card) , but when I choose a folder it pops up that I don't have permission to write on the sdcard (I just can sync in the standard folder .../data/com.bittorrent.sync/files, however I can't see the images in my gallery when I sync with the standard folder) Do you guys know how to write in a different folder and how to see the pictures in the standard folder in my gallery? Thanks
  12. I think these two features are self explanatory, so I'll skip to the part where I inquire whether they are in the pipeline or not.
  13. my android device stopped backing up some time in the last month. On the PC, I just noticed the most recent Date Synced is "a month ago" and there are files as new as today that aren't in the backup location. It used to work great on all ten directories. I've tried restarting both devices. Since I can't force a sync, not sure what to do. Anything that can break this connection?
  14. When I have an Android TV (yes, I know not supported but still fully running) I found out that I can backup a folder on an external usbdisk connected to my Android TV, but I cannot add a normal folder from that same external usbdisk. Why is that different? It sounds to me that the file permissions are not the problem, right? I want to have the option to create a folder (from a read/write-key) in that external usbdisk (/storage/usbdisk/media for example). Why? Simple, because I can have my NAS or pc as a source and sync it always with my Android TV without any interaction by me. Due to limitations of Android 5.x or app-limitations (?) I cannot automatically move files from /sdcard (main volume) to /storage/usbdisk while I can backup /storage/usbdisk/media in Bittorrent Sync which implies that it should be possible to do, right? Hope anyone has tips or solutions...and maybe news of upcoming version (that can be sideloaded on Android TV ). Thnx!
  15. Android sync restricts app from writing to external sd card. Please be aware, that other sync apps, popup a dialog if I grant it rights to write to my external sd card, and have no problem doing so. Thanks nat
  16. Hello, The folders I have syncing with my computer all have Selective Sync on by default on my phone, which is not what I actually want though I know what it's benefits are. And based on the forum posts, I understand that it being on by default is intended behavior. The issue is when I turn it of, the settings reverts back to on when I reboot the phone or when the app process gets killed. Is this a bug?
  17. I installed btsync then i create the folder /sdcard/android/data/com.bittorrent.syncBut when i connect a device file are stored in internal memory /storage/emulated/0/... I have tried to uninstall create the folder in sdcard prior to install etc but it seems to continue to use the internal memory. Lollipop 5.0.2 Samsung Galaxy Tab A Any hint / help?
  18. When browsing folders if you move inside one, there's no way to go back to previous folder.
  19. When browsing files with long names, frequently they look the same when multiple files/folders exist with common beginning string, making difficult to select proper one. Not working on Android 4.1.2

  21. Android 4.2.2 Crashing and sending log and forum user name.
  22. Hello, I am using the current v2.1.1 on the Windows machine and also the current 2.0.107 on HTC One M8 and a Nexus 9. These devices are using the same LAN. Windows client has LAN broadcast enabled. Problem: The two android devices are not seeing each other. They see only the Windows machine. Questions: How can they be made to see each other so they can REALLY use the mesh topology that Sync promises to be using?Is this something only the PRO version has? (using free now) Thanks for any help!
  23. Hi guys, Would this program be more useful if it is able to manage items on devices not only via wifi? I was thinking when alreadyconnected android/ios devices are connected via cable it is able to automatically synced the folders into them? Or allowing the desktop software to act as a universal device manager as well. Well i mean it is better than having a dropbox/sugarsync/drive program on desktop. Just my 2-cents
  24. OK, so I have a problem with BT Sync 2.0.127 (35) just killing my wifi in my house. I have an Android phone that pulls files in 24/7 from the internet. When those files are finished downloading, they move to a shared BT Sync folder that should then sync to my laptop (OS X 10.9.5). The problem is that as soon as BT Sync starts moving files across the wifi, every device on wifi (iPhones, Mac) experience super intermittent internet. Webpages slow to a crawl, Netflix is not an option, everything is down. Pause the sync, and everything comes back up immediately. At first, I thought this was an issue with bandwidth across the wifi, so I limited the bandwidth available. I started at 500kb/s, and now I'm down to 50kb/s. The option rate_limit_local_peers is set to true. A note about my setup- we currently share internet access with the neighbors. I have a DD-WRT router acting as a wireless bridge. This problem happens regardless if the laptop is connected to the DD-WRT router in our apartment or directly to the neighbors' wifi. Any ideas?
  25. Hi all, I refer to 2.0 product version. This is the scenario: I have an android device and a pc desktop. The devices are linked. 1) For sync purpose I can choose a folder on pc and on android i see the creation of a folder that i can connect, but this folder has to be a new one, it is NO possible to choose a folder in android that already exist.. why? I would like sync and link a new folder in desktop and a folder in android that already exist. 2) Why is it no possible to start a new sync sharing from android device selecting a new folder, not one that was already configured with desktop client? My regards
