  1. Hello. Until a few days ago I synced my music library between my PC and my Android phone on the internal storage of my Android phone. Everything worked fine. But it's gotten pretty big so I decided to move it to my SD card. In the Resilio app I disconnected, deleted the folder on internal storage, changed the default storage for the folders on Resilio to my SD card and connected to the library on my PC again. In the file explorer everything works. The music files are there. When I click on them in the file explorer I can open them in a music player and they play. But if I open the music player it (the folder with the music) either doesn't show up at all (Pulsar Music Player and others), or it shows up but I can't see the titles (the Sony music app). When the library was in the internal storage everything worked just fine. And when I move the library manually to the SD card (using my PC) everything works, too. It only doesn't work when Resilio sync the library to the SD card. Is there any solution to this?
  2. Its been a while since I have posted because Resilio has been working so well for me. So, we just got two identical Android phones; one is about two weeks older than the other. Both are LG Xpower3 phones. A bit of background first: I have a few FreeBSD servers all running full sync for multiple folders we will call A to G. Rock solid. Also have one Ubuntu laptop running full sync to two of those folders A and B. Also rock solid. Two weeks ago I added Sync to a brand shiny new LG Xpower3 phone, and added A and B, but in "Selective sync"mode. Also rock solid. Yesterday we got a second brand new LG Xpower3 phone. I can add A in "selective sync" with no issues, and it seems to be perfectly fine. When I add B on this second phone, after a couple minutes the app stops responding and you can feel the back of the phone heat up. The syncing process says it synced, but the files in there are greyed out, and even if I touch them to sync nothing happens. If I force stop the app and restart I get the same result. I have tried everything I can think of including removing and re-adding B, clearing cache, uninstalling and reinstalling (and I did that also trying to deleted those two sync folders created in Downloads to purge any hidden data). Nothing I try matters. A works fine, B just locks up the app and heats up the phone. If I add A and nothing else, Sync seems fine for as long as I let it remain. If I add B by itself the app freezes. Note I even currently have no files in B, I removed them all just to see, and I let all the other devices sit for 30 minutes (it was supper time) before I tried adding B on this second phone. The only other thing I noticed is when I touch the sync folder inside sync it takes a long long time to show the contents, whether it be nothing or files. I assume all phone versions are correct, but have not checked yet. And all machines, except one FreeBSD server, sits on the same LAN (L2 broadcast domain). And my two old LG phone works perfectly fine on wifi networks outside my home network, as well as the mobile data network. I'm stumped, any thoughts?
  3. Android: Name a sync to something other than the folder name e.g. to differentiate between DCIM folders on both internal phone storage and sdcard. Im probably an idiot but only just realised that the 'rename' section on the android app actually moves the folder that's being synced.
  4. Hi Sometimes I'm wondering, why sync does not work anymore. In the app I see that there is no Peer (Peers: 0). I have to stop the app on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ and restart it. Then it works again for about one week. Does anybody have the same issue? Thank you Marco
  5. Scenario: As a user, I run into a problem with Sync. I want to provide useful information to the developers so that they are actually able to solve the problem with a reasonable amount of effort. Current situation: I turn on debug logging in Sync's settings. I do a web search to find out where I can find my log. Sync documentation on logging defers to Sync documentation on "data folder" location. This documentation shows a path that is only accessible as a root user on Android, and notes such. Ideal situation: Sync for Android provides either A) An option to set the location of the log file B) An action to send the log file
  6. Hi guys, ANDROID TV USERS: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIKE(hit like, add +1, etc) THIS POST TO MAKE THIS REQUEST HIGHER On https://www.android.com/tv/ there are several devices with Android TV built in: - Sony BRAVIA - Xiaomi Mi Box - Nvidia Shield TV - Razor Forge TV In my case, I take a lot of media on MacMini, Dell Laptop and two Android TV players (nvidia and xiaomi), I'd like them all to be synced between each other. I've contacted support team for *.apk version, but it's work unstable on Android TV. It crashes every 1-2 days and I should restart the app manually. And there is no any user-firendly UI for tv-remote, it works only with mouse. Android TV support would be nice. Many Thanks!
  7. I am using the Pro license, I have a single folder shared among several linux hosts. When I scan the QR code in some device to link it to my phone, the previous one I had linked disappears. In other words, the phone always shows in My Devices the "this device" and another, last linked one. Not sure if this also results in the shared folder being re-added with (1) appended (I noticed this wrong new copy of the folder, but I'm not sure if it was caused by this issue). Also, the folder has more peers (which is correct) than devices listed in My Devices, so certainly the app is aware of more devices.
  8. Long time Sync user here. I've gone through several Android devices since I've started using Sync. On every new device (or after doing a factory reset) I set up the automated photo backup, thus I end up with a new 'Camera uploads' share every time which I have to set up on all other nodes. I'd love to see a way to allow multiple devices to back up to the same folder, preferably by setting a custom share key when setting up a backup folder.
  9. I would like to connect an external hard drive to my android tv and then be able to have kodi play files off of it. As of yet I am unable to find a way to tell sync to store folder on the harddrive. If anyone has a solution that would be very helpful.
  10. Hello, My Android 7.0 phone got update today from Google Play Store and now it's running Sync 2.6.0 (7871) I have 2 connected folders and now they both show "Can't open the destination folder". The destination folders are on my phone's external SD card and I am pretty sure Sync 2.5.x didn't have this problem (I granted SD card access). The SD card is mounted correctly and I can see all synced files from a FileManager app. I did: 1. reboot the phone 2. check System Settings / App permissions, and Sync 2.6.0 does have "Storage" permission. I suspect that Sync 2.6.0 somehow lost SD card access permission ... is there any way for Sync 2.6.0 to check/ask for SD card access again? or any ideas to fix this issue? Thanks.
  11. First of all, seems like BT Sync is the best kept secret in tech today:) I stumbled upon BT Sync googling for a specific solution, but I think I can use Sync every day anyhow. 1. My original problem. On a new Android device, I copied all my media files from an older device via several cloud providers (Google Drive, Onedrive, dropbox), using several (paid for) Android apps to keep them in sync. Problem: The timestamps are reset as new files! This kills many features of many apps that need to know the age of the stuff. So, the question: If I get BT sync on the new device, and old device, and Windows-10 desktop (which has synced folders to Gdrive, 1Drive, Dropbox) will BT Sync (after deleting the erroneous stuff from the new device) copy/sync everything to the new Android device, retaining the original timestamps? If so, does my desktop need to be involved? Can the two android's accomplish this? (Not that I don't want my desktop 'involved', but want to know how this works.) On the flip side, do I need the old Android to accomplish this with bt sync? 2. Going forward: Can I replace all my Android syncing apps, (FolderSync, DropSync, etc.) with BT Sync? Can I sync win-10 Desktop folders with my Android devices remotely without any cloud?? 3. Groups. Can I have a group (about 30 people) all sync some folders on our desktops (Windows & Linux) and devices Android and ios? (That's at least 60 machines.) How does pricing work in this scenario. Woops. I went off topic. Am too excited. Thanks. nat
  12. When the camera roll on my iphone is synced to the folders on my computer they retain the original file name. I wish the file name was a date or customizable instead of dcf450394.jpg.
  13. An image worth 1000 words, so here is what I am talking about: I added my Nexus 6 Android phone to my Resilio, and created an "Camera backup": Then on my computer, it appears like that: With the name "DCIM". I tried to add another folder but it just keeps the folder name (Like "Downloads" or stuff like that). I like to keep my thing clean and I would love to simply have a "Nexus 6" folder that contains "DCIM", "Downloads", and other folders I would like to add. Or at worst, be able to rename the folder on my computer to "Nexus 6 Camera backup", but I cannot find the menu to "rename this folder locally": (and in "Preferences": Does anybody knows if it is possible? Also, quick note for to the devs: "Clear" == "Remove from device" was definitely not 'clear' in my mind I love Resilio, so keep up the work and I can't wait to be able to use it as I want!!
  14. Hi everybody, I have just recently started using resilio sync. I have bought a home pro license and would like to create an own identity for mobile phone (Android). However, it seems that there is no possibility to enter license information in the Android app. So my question is: am I simply not finding the dialog to enter my license key or is this option missing? I am very well aware of the fact that I can link the app on my phone to any of my identities, but as my other identities contain files that I cannot make available to my phone (security/privacy reasons). Hence, the need for another identity for my mobile. Best wishes, Maitri
  15. Hi everybody, First of all, not being a Native English speaker, please excuse mistakes or incomprehension if there are any. Since I regularly work "on the road" in devastated country where mobile network is very expensive, I bought the pro version of Resilio to sync all my data between phone and computers, using my android phone as router (Wifi access point tethering). Unfortunately, it doesn't work. I try all advices from the Resilio Help Center with no positiv result. In my case, I need to sync data from computers to my phone without using 3G/4G data connection but only android wifi tethering on wich my computers are connected (LAN). I disable use of tracker and relay as indicated but peers aren't connecting or discovered anyway. Please note that when I use 3G/4G data to connect or an external wifi router, it does work properly, but unfortunately, this is not an option most of the time in my situation. Is that a known problem ? Is there a solution ? Thanking you in advance for your help, I wish you a very plesant day.
  16. Hi, I have setup a read-sync folder on my android, with selective-sync. I have a library of audiobooks, where each folder contains 100-200 wma or mp3 files. When I sync a folder, all audio-book files are downloaded. Bittorrent-sync states that all files are successfully downloaded. When I view the files in an android explorer, size of file looks ok. But when I try to play in VLC, not all files are playable. When i download 100 files, generally 5-10 files are corrupt. I.e. media player cannot read audio-tag information, or play the file. When I "clear" the corrupt files in bittorrent-sync and re-download them, they are usually ok to play again. I.e. I am confident that files are ok on server, but become corrupt on my Android device while downloading. Why does Bittorrent sync think files are ok? When they actually are not? Is this the root-cause Android platform? Is the root-cause an WMA or mp3 issue? May I encounter the same phenomena on other files as jpg when syncing between NAS-Windows application. I am worried for my picture backups too. I have updated to the latest 2.3.7 version on all server, and downloaded latest android, which is 2.3.5.
  17. For the past few days, my Galaxy S8 has been throwing a system error message from Device Maintenance, stating "Some apps or processes are overloading the system (CPU) and need to be closed." The culprit is always Sync. Has anything changed recently to cause this? I've been running Sync on Androids for as long as it's been available, and I never had a problem like this. Thanks in advance for any insight. Regards, TT
  18. Hello, I originally queued this post in the similar thread posted by forum member shai, but in the end I decided to move in a new thread since the two problems are unrelated and the problem reported by shai seem to be explained, but the solution is not applicable to my case. In the past week I have been using the trial period of Resilio Sync Home Pro to evaluate if it could fit with my use case which is the synchronization of some folders on my personal computer with my android phone. I have been very impressed by the capabilities of the application but unfortunately I encountered an annoying problem. In fact I shared the DCIM folder of my phone (on SD card) with the PC to transfer photos, which in fact were transferred correctly. Unfortunately when I deleted the photos from the PC expecting them to be deleted also on the phone, I noticed (with a file explorer) that only a subset of the photos were actually deleted. Which photos were deleted was quite unpredictable. On the other hand, viewing the folder contents from the internal Resilio Sync app all the photos were removed. Note that the problem did never occur when the DCIM folder was moved in phone internal memory. The setup that I used was the following: - Two phones tested: Moto G4 Plus (Android 7) and Sony Xperia XZ1 (Android 8) : problem occurred on both - Dell Venue 8 Pro with Win 10 on the other side - Micro SD Sandisk 200 GB formatted ExFAT - Linked devices, advanced folders Could you please provide a possible solution to this problem? I look forward to purchase and use Sync but obviously I would prefer to store data on SD. Thank you for your support Best regards
  19. My primary objective is simple: I want to set up a bidirectional sync between one existing folder and it's subfolders on my Android phone with a folder on my PC. I can't find any way to select the folder on the Android side, nor can I find a way to link the phone and the PC. If the free version can't do this what in the world can it do?
  20. Hello, I clicked the + button and used "Create folder" to add my DCIM directory on my SD card to which my phone's camera saves all of my pictures. Initial sync made sure that all my photos are on my Desktop. Now that I've got them there, I moved (ie. deleted) them to another directory on my PC so they no longer exist (hence deleted) in the Resilio Sync directory. With Read/Write permissions, I would expect Sync to now delete this pictures from my Android device, but this didn't happen. What might I be doing wrong or did I not understand how Sync should work?

  21. Hey there everyone, I've tried playing around with Sync Home (free) to synchronize my music folder on my PC to my phone. Previously, I have synced my music through MusicBee but it's getting very tedious with how long it takes and how regularly it fails. However, my attempts at syncing haven't allowed me to specify where on my Android phone I'd like to sync to, and sets to the default (/storage/emulated/0/Download/Sync/MP3). I have a 200GB SD card for this very purpose and want to make use of it, as my phone storage isn't big enough for all of my music. Is this a limitation of the free version, and if so, which version do I need to buy to get around it? Or am I just missing something altogether? Thanks for any help or feedback!
  22. Hi, I'm a huge fan of RS and have been using the PRO version for a while now. Thanks for a great product. After doing a factory reset on my phone I'm setting up my RS folders again but I've read the help and forums but can't find an answer to the following situation I'm in. Situation: I have a Sync folder containing the iTunes music on my Macbook and I had used a selective-sync read-only key folder on my Android to pull many GB of files that I wanted on my external SD card. I was hoping that when I setup the selective-sync folder again on my Android that RS would recognize the many GB of files that were already on the extSD card but it doesn't notice that they are there. Normally when I use an existing folder Sync recognizes that the folder isn't empty but it didn't ask me about that this time when I configured the folder. I assume this is because it's setup from a 'read-only key.' I'm hoping that there's some way to force it to do a rescan of the folder (rescan what is synced to the Android extSD card, not a rescan of the source) to update the 'synced' file counts and GB count. Any ideas?
  23. Hello. I have been familiar with torrent for a long time, but recently trying to migrate to resilio (due to my frustration with dropbox and the limitations). I have a Laptop (running Arch Linux) with all my data. I have set up a config file for a couple of my folders. I have posted my code below, or it's in a pastebin here. I want to sync my Music folder to my android phone. (Samsung Galaxy S7) I installed the Sync app, and entered the "secret" of the Music folder as a key in my phone, and directed it into an empty folder called Music in my sd card. After this, my phone says it sees my Laptop as a peer, but I can't see any files in the Music folder. And it says it has synced. I check my ~/Music folder on my laptop, and it is well populated. The reason I'm using the JSON config file is I am more comfortable with manual configs over a GUI. { "device_name": "SBP-Laptop" ,"use_upnp" : true ,"download_limit" : 0 ,"upload_limit" : 0 ,"webui" : { "listen" : "0.0.0.0:8888" // remove field to disable WebUI ,"login" : "SOME UNAME" ,"password" : "SOME PASSWORD" } /* !!! if you set shared folders in config file WebUI will be DISABLED !!! shared directories specified in config file override the folders previously added from WebUI. */ ,"shared_folders" : [ { // required field - use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret "secret" : "SOME SECRET" ,"dir" : "Documents" // use relay server when direct connection fails ,"use_relay_server" : true ,"use_tracker" : true ,"search_lan" : true // enable SyncArchive to store files deleted on remote devices ,"use_sync_trash" : true // restore modified files to original version, ONLY for Read-Only folders ,"overwrite_changes" : false // add folder in selective sync mode ,"selective_sync" : false // specify hosts to attempt connection without additional search ,"known_hosts" : [ "192.168.1.2:44444" ] } ,{ // required field - use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret "secret" : "SOME SECRET" ,"dir" : "Pictures" ,"use_relay_server" : true ,"use_tracker" : true ,"search_lan" : true ,"use_sync_trash" : true ,"overwrite_changes" : false ,"selective_sync" : false ,"known_hosts" : [ "192.168.1.2:44444" ] } ,{ // required field - use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret "secret" : "SOME SECRET" ,"dir" : "Music" ,"use_relay_server" : true ,"use_tracker" : true ,"search_lan" : true ,"use_sync_trash" : true ,"overwrite_changes" : false ,"selective_sync" : false ,"known_hosts" : [ "192.168.1.2:44444" ] } ,{ // required field - use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret "secret" : "SOME SECRET" ,"dir" : "Videos" ,"use_relay_server" : true ,"use_tracker" : true ,"search_lan" : true ,"use_sync_trash" : true ,"overwrite_changes" : false ,"selective_sync" : false ,"known_hosts" : [ "192.168.1.2:44444" ] } ] }
  24. Hello, Resilio Sync used to work perfectly on my Galaxy Note 1 reading and writing from and to the SD card, syncing to and from my Windows 7 PC. I have now bought a Galaxy S7 running Android 7.0 and the same doesn't work. I have installed Resilio Sync from the Play Store and reinstalled it. Turned off simple mode Set up read only keys to get thousands of pictures and other files from three separate folders on the PC onto the SD card in the phone. All works well, and I can see the files in Total Commander, look at the pictures and play the MP3 files, but when the phone goes to sleep or restarts, Resilio tells me it can't find the destination folders. Sometimes I find that .sync/ID is missing or the whole .sync folder is missing. I have even tried moving the folder to sync into from SD:// (in my case /storage/5533-434F) to /storage/5533-434F/Android/data/com.resilio.sync/files/ but the problem persists. Is this a known problem? Jim
