  1. Android 4.2.2 Crashing and sending log and forum user name.
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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 c
  6. Hello, how does the notification of newly added or changed files in a shared folder work in android and OS X? Thank you
  7. Hello all, I can't find any option to select the SD card as the source for the camera backup, is it possible at all? It works perfectly with the internal memory of the phone, but I save the photos on the SD card, and these photos are not being backed up. Any idea? Thank you a lot!
  8. Hey, I would like to use BitTorrent Sync with my Phone, a Motorola Razer i with an x86 Intel Atom SoC. Google Play Store shows me a "Not supported on your Device", so i guess, its just running with ARM? Is there a Problem with it or was it just "forgotten" because x86 Devices are so rare? Thanks
  9. I have five devices in my sync network: two desktop PCs (win7), 1 laptop PC (win 8.1), one iphone 6+, and one android phone (Sony Z1 compact android v5.0.2). I turned on "Camera backup" on the iPhone and connected it to the SD card on the android phone. This causes the Android phone to go into "indexing" mode endlessly, which quickly drains the battery on the phone. There are 7.6GB of photos on the iphone. It works fine when I use the built-in storage on the Android phone, I only have this problem when I use the SD card. No problem syncing with the PCs. I have tried several times wiping
  10. "use notification" was an settings option to hide/show persistent notification from appearing. It was there in but is gone in Did it get moved or removed?
  11. Hi, I have sync 2 installed on my phone and btsync working on the server (OS is Win 8.1). I have a library that makes the calls to the API which is available on github ( The folder I have on the phone was created on the windows machine and the share sent to the phone which was then accepted. The problem is that anything put in that folder on the phone is not being synced back to the server or vice versa. If I make any calls to the API through the library, the app also locks up. I'm guessing that this is down to the information I pass in when I instantiate the l
  12. I recently had to do a factory reset on my tablet. I recently had to to a factory reset on my Tablet that, until today, was Syncing quite well with my laptop. After the reset, my tablet is no longer able to sync with my laptop. Things to note, I have reinstalled the Sync app and went with the "this is my first device" and then added the folder again using the QR code. My computer can connect to the peer list and see the tablet and appears to be attempting to send the files contained within the folder. My tablet can get a "Peers: 1" from the main screen but I am unable to see anyone on
  13. Hello, I have the pro version of Bittorrent Sync and I guess to have found a bug. I have two installations, one with my own identity and another with a test identity. Now the test: 1) Create a folder with some data to sync on the personal identity 2) Share the folder with the Android Device with the test identity and choose "Read Only" 3) Connect to the folder with the test identity 4) First, the granted permissions suddenly change to Read/Write and second, they are only changeable to Owner and Read/Write but not to Read only This can be reproduced at least on my fresh installation
  14. I am currently running Android 5 Lollipop with Sync installed. I am trying to point Sync's default save location to my Music folder on my SD card. However, I keep getting an error stating "Android OS restricts write access to this directory" wherever I try and create a folder or select a folder on my SD card. I thought this restriction had been removed in Lollipop so apps can write to their own created folders on SD cards? I can grant write access to other apps, such as file explorer apps which I can copy and move files with to the SD card with no issues. I really need to be able to
  15. Hi I've got 'orphan' .bts files on my Android mobile devices after file upload. I uploaded a local file from my android tablet which uploaded perfectly and propagated across my devices, however I noticed a residual file called [filename].[file extension].bts, which remained on my tablet long after the successful completion of the file upload. I can't seem to delete or hide. I understand this some form of placeholder file to give the appearance of completion prior to upload concluding How do I remove or prevent this duplication from appearing? Is it something do to with how mobile devic

  17. I have installed Sync 2.0 on 3 different NAS units (different types of Synology NAS), my macbook, desktop PC, ipad and android phone (A Samsung S4 mini). I learn as I go along, but feel also I need to thread carefully, in order not to waste too much time and risk mismanagement of my files because I miscomprehend what's going on. Would like to hear "best practices" for what I want to achieve, so I may learn from your example and experience too :-) So far I want to Sync just one folder across these devices, so that files are quickly accessible on these synced devices. (I guess that's what BT Syn
  18. I recently received a replacement phone (HTC One M8) and am now unable to successfully run Sync. Problem: The app will load and seems to run however when I bring up the screen, it will open for approximately 3 seconds and then the screen closes. The app is still running though. I can continue to go back into the app but it just continues to close the screen and all I can do is a force close to exit it. I've downgraded to 1.4 and the same issue occurs. I've reset the app and started fresh but to no avail. Does the same thing. Attempt to access settings and enable logging but can't as
  19. Hello, I have been happily using Bittorrent sync to share a folder from a Windows 7 laptop to my Android phone (Galaxy S4) in read-only mode (i.e. changes can only be propagated from the laptop to the phone, not the other way around), and everything has been working just fine. Then, earlier today, I suddenly started getting the "Don't have permissions to write to the selected folder" error on the phone. When I disconnect the folder and then reconnect it, Bittorrent Sync tries to place it in a subfolder of the Bittorrent directory, and if I try to force it to go to the external SD card, where

  21. I have just setup Sync and I am syncing all my pictures/videos/music data from PC to Android and vice versa, works great, really pleased. However I have setup a folder on my computer to save my Facebook photos, I have this synced with the directory that Facebook puts photos onto my Android device 'Pictures/Facebook', works great, whenever I take photos/upload via Facebook on my phone or PC they sync. The only issue is that if I download an image from android Facebook their app saves it in a different directory 'DCIM > Facebook' as opposed to 'Pictures/Facebook' as it is download not my
  22. I have just upgraded to Sync 2.0 on my Android phone (version 5.0.1) and wanted to sync my data with my new removable SD card, but it seems that the application does not create the folder /Android/data/com.bittorrent.sync automatically on the latter. As a result I can't synchronize data on my SD card which quite annoying. Anyway to create that folder manually ? Any workaround I could use ? Thank you. Best regards,
  23. Hi all. I have a couple of questions regarding the new Sync 2.0. I have installed it on my Windows pc and my android. 1) Is it possible to create a shared folder using the android app? 2) With version 1.4 I had the following (working setup): 1- Created a folder on my PC (DCIM_BK) 2- Connected this folder to the DCIM folder on my android With this I had full 2-way sync of all pics and vids. Now with 2.0 apparently I'm not able to do the same thing because the following happens: 1- created a (2.0) folder on my pc (DCIM_BK_2) 2- Added this folder on my android 3- selected destination on m
  24. So there is a "How to downgrade from 2.0 to 1.4?" in the how to section of the help ceter, which covers Windows and Mac, but there's no equivalent for Android. Is the apk of the last 1.x version available somewhere at least?
  25. This is an informational question, not a troubleshooting question. I just want to find out if anyone has seen "unknown error: 110" on Android and I'd like to get the definition of this error.
