having set up two-way sync between folders on two different servers, would there be any reason why the file count is different at each end? in other cases on the same servers, the sync details show the same file count at each end. two folders - apparently no different - show counts which do not match. am i missing something? also: what is the reason why the file count shown by btsync differs dramatically from the file count shown by windows?? windows: 11005 files, 40 folders 415Mb - btsync: 20118 files, 615Mb. - is this an error or are there heaps of hidden files somewhere? any information welcome, thank you.
Hi, I looked over the Unofficial BitTorrent Sync FAQs list and found a section that somewhat matches my situation: Reading that gives me the impression that the actual number of files would be listed correctly within the app, but just not transferred for one of the reasons listed. In my case, the number of files is vastly different: Around 3000 listed in the app and around 33,000 actual files Permissions are good as I'm running the app as a local administrator account and I have explicitly reset the Administrators group as having full access and "pushed" permissions down. The source system is a Windows XP Professional (SP3) system and I have rebooted the system to make sure that any locked files for the affected profile (not the local administrator whose account is active) are freed. I've also opened the .SyncIgnore file on the source and a destination system and commented out all default entries (and closed/reopened the app). I even went and found a Windows touch tool that allowed me to reset the last modified time recursively on all files and that only resulted in around 100 more files listed than was previously shown in the Size column (X GB in Y files). During all of this I rebooted the system several times and closed/reopened the client (not just the app window, but the application itself) after each change to test the results. Any tips? I haven't collected the logs and mailed them in yet. I was hoping that maybe this was a known issue with a workaround. If not, I'll gladly collect the logs and mail them in. Thanks.
Hi, I have successfully setup btsync on one directory, and this has completely indexed and synced with no issues. However, for whatever reason, the second directory I have tried to add is only partially indexing - of 90 subfolders, only 9 are actually picked up by btsync. I have checked, and permissions are identical, and there is nothing in .syncignore that should be causing this. The file count is high due to lots of small text files - indexing stops at 7000-ish (those 9 folders with way more to go) and then reports that it is complete. The only thing the log tells me is 'Loaded folder...' - no errors reported or anything. Is there some kind of folder level limit, or file count limit causing this? Where can I go from here? thanks, Ils
