  1. We installed sync across 3 different computers one with xp, one with windows 7, and one with windows 8. The files we placed in the sync folder worked great for several weeks then suddenly started disappearing. Sometimes these files can be discovered by a search and other times they can not. Regardless of which scenario they fall under these files are not visible, hidden, or set as system files. This is very troubling since these files are for our business and contain important customer information. (We found the files in the .syncarchive folder) Why is it being moved there? I have started a debugging log as of this morning but wont be able to post it until this problem comes up again. I have noticed that this seems to occur when new files are saved to the synced folder and as far as I am aware, not when they are copied in. Please help... This is a problem and we will uninstall sync very soon if we can't find a solution.
  2. Hi there, I have two windows machines syncing one folder. Once says 1240 files (3.7 Gb), the another 1239. Obviously the second one wants to download the file that is absent. But it can't, it just shows a permanent status of uploading. How can I know which one is failing? No .Sync* files out there. Already tried restarting syncs and computers (several times). Also trying to figure out which file could be by searching files of 54.5 Kb and modified within 2 weeks, but if I change the name of the files these are well synced with no change in file counting. How can I solve the mystery?? EDIT: Just before posting it has been solved. But why? No idea. I have just keeping changing the name of the suspicious file and then, suddenly the 1239 has changed to 1240 (with no extra file in the folder). As the problem has disappeared randomly I find it difficult to reproduce. But anyway perhaps it is useful to report this here (?). BW, Gerard
  3. A's computer's bittorrernt sync might have been off or paused. B's computer changed the name of the folder, not all files were done syncing. A's computer put files into .SyncArchive, probably any the files that didn't exist on B's. This is a bug. I want to be able to change a folder name even if the files in that folder are not synced on both computers. Bittorrent should be smart enough for this.
  4. hi all, I've set up BitTorrent Sync on two raspberry pi's -- I created a shared folder on pi1, the folder has some files in, normal sorts of stuff, text files, png, wav, etc. But the interface is just showing 0 B in 0 files. I put the key into a new shared folder on pi2 and nothing happens. I tried editing some of the files on pi1 to see if it would 'force' btsync to reindex, no luck. The strange thing is, I put the same key into a new shared folder on my mac and drop an image into the empty folder and it propagates the file to the pis. Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is there some sort of special action I need to run to get the existing files to be indexed? Thanks.
  5. I wish to sync my Photos and Lightroom Catalog files. The problem is Lightroom creates a cache directory along-side of the Catalog. So my directory looks like: C:\Media\Catalogs\MyCatalog.lrcat C:\Media\Catalogs\MyCatalog Previews.lrdata\* C:\Media\Pictures\20131013\* C:\Media\Pictures\20131014\* C:\Media\Pictures\20131015\*etc. I have a BTSync directory at C:\Media\Catalogs, and all I want to sync are the *.lrcat files. I have been trying to ignore the *.lrdata directory using the .SyncIgnore file, but I have been unsuccessful. After reading online, and performing experiments, I realize that I am not alone. I feel like one of these should work:*.lrdata*.lrdata/*/*.lrdata/*.lrdata/* Question 1: What .SyncIgnore pattern would help me exclude all *.lrdata subdirectories. Question 2: Do I need to restart BTSync for changes in .SyncIgnore to get picked up? Question 3: Can I use forward-slash '/' in Windows? Do backslashes '\' need to be escaped '\\'? Thank you.
  6. Hi! Yesterday I set up a btsync-client on my server to use it as a private cloud-storage. All features work fine though, but everytime there appear six files and one directory in my storage-folder (on the server and client) : metacache (dir), settings.dat, settings.dat.old, sync.dat, sync.dat.old, sync.log and The Problem is, that my desktop client gets new meta-files from the server every ten Minutes. These new files (mostly 4-9 metacache-files, settings.dat, settings.dat.old, sync.dat.old), that im not really interested in as a "typical user", appear as messages in my OS. Is there a possibility, to place the hole meta, settings etc. folder out of my storage-sync-path or to deactivate the messages of these? Or do you know some other fault I've made? The maximum of messages that I got at one time were over 700, maybe because I hasn't been logged in for some hours so that the client has get all files of hours at a time. Greets Okkarator
