  1. For some reason BTSync on Android version won't scan the QR code from my computer screen. Other QR code readers work just fine. I tried the Barcode Scanner (de factor for Android as Google recommends it for the Authenticator) and it scanned the code in matter of seconds. But BTSync just stays there never being able to detect the code. What could be wrong?
  2. Hello , i want to sync my several Android devices with my home Linux box. I have installed BitTorrent Sync 1.4.93 on my Linux box and last version of app on all my Android devices. I want to sync (backup) my phone/tablet camera pictures. As you can image on all Android devices folder with this pictures is named "DCIM". First one device had synced with no problem. But when I try to add new device in new folder on my Linux have error, that folder with this name is exist and I can't add second (or third, or next) device. Can anyone advise me how can i avoid this problem?
  3. In versions past, I was able to link a specific folder on my laptop with a specific (that is, a folder I specified) on my Android device. It seems that in version 1.4, I can specify a read-only folder on my android device, but I cannot specify a folder to synchronize (read-write). I haven't been able to find any information about this except for other people having the same problem. Is there a workaround? Is there some reason this had to be eliminated? Just to be clear, the flow I'd like is this, which was possible in earlier versions: Setup sync folder on PC, generate QR code/secret,
  4. Hi, The Android client works great for me until recently it simply crash when it starts... What could be the issue? Here is the logcat output when it start and crash: 11-04 01:38:06.662: I/ActivityManager(628): Start proc com.bittorrent.sync for activity com.bittorrent.sync/.ui.activity.StartActivity: pid=16269 uid=10158 gids={50158, 1006, 3003, 1028, 1015}11-04 01:38:06.992: I/ActivityManager(16269): Timeline: Activity_launch_request id:com.bittorrent.sync time:1502830211-04 01:38:06.992: I/ActivityManager(628): START u0 {cmp=com.bittorrent.sync/.ui.activity.MainActivity} from pid 1626911
  5. Android sync version is there away to get a list of the peers. it will give you the number of peers but I would like to be able to get the peer name and where thay are sync or not.
  6. Apparently bittorent sync on an android tablet distinguishes between capitalized and non-capitalized words in the file names. I am not sure whether this is an android thing or a bittorrent sync issue. It would be nice when BT sync is able to ignore this capitalization when sorting on an adroid device.
  7. Hi, I've been trying to set up a simple sync between my phone and my PC. What I would like to do is have my Camera folder from Android sync'd to my PC so I can organize my photos from my PC. I want to delete some photos and move others to a file server (same as deleting). This almost works for me, but when I delete a photo from my PC it doesn't completely disappear from my phone. I have an LG G2 running Android 4.4.2. It behaves as follows after deleting a single image on my PC: If I explore the camera folder via BtSync on the phone, the deleted photo gone.If I explore the camera fol
  8. I'm really liking the UI improvements for the Android version of Bittorrent Sync, and it runs nicely, but I have some feedback I'd like to give: Advanced Settings I'd really like to see advanced settings made available for shares, in particular I want to be able to set predefined hosts so I don't need to use a tracker or DHT to locate peers; all my shares go through my NAS which is on 24/7, so I set it as a predefined host on Windows and Mac machines, but I can't on Android (that I can see). Faster Startup Between opening the app and seeing your shares there is still a long delay in wh
  9. Hi, I have two Android devices (one Android v4.2.2, the other v4.4.2) both running v1.4.44.0, and an Ubuntu 14.04 machine running v1.4.0-4. I have created some read-only (I think now called 'backup' in v1.4?) syncs on my Android devices, which I'm syncing to my Ubuntu box. One of these is working, but a couple of them show as "Out Of Sync" on both the Android client and the Ubuntu web gui. My hunch is that this happened after I changed the .sync/IgnoreList and restarted btsync on the Ubuntu machine. In the sync.log on the Ubuntu machine, the two folders that are not syncing both gener
  10. I have couple of hundreds GB of data on several machines running btsync. I also want to access them from android phone. Obviously I don't want t sync all data to the phone. I want download some files on demand (dropbox style). I tried to use the folder in NON auto-sync mode, in this case is does not work. In auto-sync mode is tries to download whole folder. When the auto-sync is off there is Synchronized label under the folder name, which seems not logical. It is not synchronized, just a couple of files were downloaded. One more issue. I have one more folder on the phone with as little as 50 M
  11. When the app listens for the android.hardware.action.NEW_PICTURE and android.hardware.action.NEW_VIDEO message, it can start the upload immediatly after the image is taken. This is how Google+ and Dropbox allow syncing of new images immediatly. Currently, we have to wait untill the app wakes up and does the syncing.
  12. I just installed bittorrent sync on my desktop Arch Linux, Android phone and iPad. Everything went smoothly and it seems to work nicely between my iPad and desktop. But on my android phone, the folder name does appear in the list but it is a dotted and under it, it has written "Pending" and no syncing is done. In settings (advanced), I have disabled "simple mode", an no other major change. I would appreciate some help, thanks in advance.
  13. How can I make a sync happen between my phone and my computer? And no, I am not talking about a backup. A backup is not what I need. I need a full synchronization of a folder on my computer to be sent to my phone, and back from my phone to my computer. If I edit a file on my computer, I want it sent to my phone. And I want the same to happen if I edit a file on my phone. I know that 1.3 used to do this. It is what got me to not use Dropbox anymore. Where has it gone in 1.4? What I want specifically to happen is my camera folder (/sdcard/DCIM/Camera) to be write access, and not just a rea
  14. My device: RedMi Note HK version FW version: MIUI-JDHMIBF30.0 Android version: 4.2.2 JDQ39 BTsync client: V1.4.44 Case: 1. Open btsync 2. Take photo from QRcode to get secret 3. Sync folder created 4. Click ... to this sync folder, the btsync crash and go back to launcher screen. Is this a bug? What can I do? I cannot delete this share folder link now....
  15. Hi, I have just configured my Android smartphone to sync its camera folder with a folder on my PC. I want the photos to get deleted on the Android device once they are deleted/moved from the folder on the PC (I'm using Lightroom to import that directory to my Lightroom library; that process moves the files). It works almost, the only problem is that after deleting files on the PC and then syncing, the files or rather the file information are still visible on the Android device. It seems that the files are somehow altered, as when I try to open the files from the camera folder on my PC (whe
  16. I don't know if the app does this at all, but it would be really nice to have some kind of intent service that we could listen for when a file has been downloaded/uploaded/etc... We're using BTSync to manage files for our app that we can't bundle in the apk itself and it would be useful for us to know when those files are updated/downloaded to the device so that action can be taken in the app to reflect that.
  17. The CPU usage on Android is way to high. I have one read-only folder that is not synchronized. And I have camera upload turned on (and 3 photos to sync). Why does Bittorrent Sync create the whole folder structure when it is a read-only, non synchronized folder? Just create the folder when a file i downloaded. It seems like it is using a lot of CPU power to keep the folderstructure synchronized.
  18. While your Android device is online and set to Auto Sleep, does it continue to sync as expected? In other words, are your Android device's files never more than 30 minutes or so out of sync, and your other devices' files never more than 30 minutes or so out of sync with what's on the Android device? By "30 minutes or so," I mean reasonably close to whatever sync period you've chosen. If Auto Sleep works consistently for you, please post your device, Android version, and if you were using WiFi or mobile data.
  19. It appears that the android app has two options: download on demand (single file), and auto sync. Is it possible to selectively sync certain folders? For example, if my pictures are sorted by year, to only sync 2014? I believe I have the latest version (1.3), on all of my clients.
  20. Hi, I moved all of my Dropbox-files, ca. 15GB, into an BT-Sync-repos(itory) and turned Dropbox off. Next to these I have repos for my books, ca. 13GB, and picture-backup. For the lare repos I'm not using "auto sync" and sync only a couple of files. I turned off the mobile sync, also. At my Android mobile devices it takes ca. 50s to show these repos. Thats really annoying if I'm on public transport and have to wait a minute for access my files. Is there a way to get rid of these? What is BT-Sync doing? Setup: Android 4.4.4 CyanogenMod Device: Nexus 4
  21. Hi, I've just started using btsync and have already run into a problem on my Android app - I can't browse my sync folders without downloading everything in the background. I have added a sync folder on the synchronize tab of the android app using the qr code from my PC btsync instance. I unticked "automatic synchronization" and still, as soon as I hit "done", all files are getting downloaded to my phone. I actually would like to browser the remote-folders and selectively sync/download certain files/folders. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to achive that?
  22. Hi. I've installed Sync on my Nexus 10 and when I tried to read QR code it says "Sorry, the camera is not available" What's wrong with it?
  23. Hi, all- I just went through the initial setup of BTSync on my mobile device. My reason for using it is to store an emergency backup of some auto-save files that are generated by software I'm using to complete a project for a client. As the project progresses, these files will grow in size to equal probably 3-4 GB total, so they should fit nicely in my phone's available space as a backup. What I want to know is, is the sync bi-directional? So if I accidentally delete a file on my phone, will it then be deleted on my computer? And if this is the case by default, is there a way to change it
  24. Hi All, I've installed BitTorrent Sync on my android device (tremendous project by the way) ! Now I would like to add a sync folder to the sync service without using the app GUI. I've tried copying ".SyncID" file (i assume it contains the secret, right ?) to the folder on the storage and added the folder path in the "/data/data/com.bittorrent.sync/shared_prefs/com.bittorrent.sync_preferences.xml" file but the folder is not detected as a sync folder when i launch the app. Is there a way for me to achieve this without using the API ? Opening to auxiliary questions : - Is the API desi
  25. On mobile version of BTSync you could activate or deactivate sync on a 3g wifi network but this could be set only for general settings. Should be nice to let set 3g\wifi sync folder by folder ;-)
