  1. I am receiving tons of messages on the remote side of sync: "failed to download <file name> - initial recheck I am not sure what this means? I cannot find any information anywhere as to what this means?
  2. Hi What is current best practice for syncing existing folders? I note that Sync puts a 'system folder' in the folder being shared.....if I setup a Sync share (creating the Sync system folder), then copy across the content outside sync (USB connected directed to source) and copy the payload would Sync see the content as synced? I think it should....... Cheers, Geoff.
  3. Hi! I do not have alot of knowledge under Linux but here's my question. I have a raspberry PI 2 B, running raspbian. I installed BTSync from this how to: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2016/02/howto-install-bittorrent-sync-from-its-official-repository/ It works fine, newer version than the one I installed before (with advanced options now yeah!). My issue is that I can only control the web gui locally, I can't get on the IP address:8888/gui to do a remote control. How to? thanks
  4. Hi, I created a "synced foler" on my PC. A ".sync\IgnoreList" file was automatically created. I edited it and wrote the file. I restarted Sync. Then I shared this folder on my phone. On my phone a ".sync\IgnoreList" file was automatically created. But: 1) this file is not the copy of the one on the PC, instead it's the default IgnoreList file 2) I can't edit the phone's IgnoreList because * when I open it with ES File manager / Text editor, when saving, I have "cannot write" (maybe it's a permission problem? this happens even if Sync is not running) * when I connec
  5. I'm having an issue where the Sync is repeatedly dropping its connection, displaying "No network connection" every few mins. Currently, I'm trying to sync a load of files to a new machine (approx 2.5TB), with a one of the machines it's syncing with being on the same network. I'm seeing speeds shoot up to 100MB/s+ and then fall down to nothing, then back up and back down again. Then I'll check back intermittently and it'll be showing "No network connection". Restarting the machine fixes the issue, or after leaving it for a while (maybe 5-10 mins) it seems to resume syncing. The machin
  6. Hello everyone. I am trying to sync my Lightroom content from my desktop to my laptop for when I'm on the go. The first time, I told the Lightroom catalogue to just stay in it's normal place and I synced it normally. It saves in the user\Pictures folder on Windows. After a few days of working in LR, I saw my server space went from 600gb free to 50gb free. Every change I made in LR, it synced and created a new archive to my server. And since the server saves all changes for 45 days, I'd have hundreds upon hundreds of versions of the LR catalogue. I searched a bit and found this link
  7. Is it possible to tell is a folder is fully synced/currently syncing or not from command line/bash? Background: My shared folders are zfs filesystems on my Ubuntu 16.04 server and I want to setup a cron job to take a zfs snapshot as long as a btsync is not currently syncing with a peer. Thanks in advance for your help!
  8. Hi. Is there a way to see some stats for the Sync client running in the API mode, starting from the date it was installed. For instance, the total size of the data transferred (uploaded/downloaded) or the total number of folders that were added. I'm writing a report on the Sync usage and that would be useful.
  9. Have a relatively simple setup with FreeNAS running BTSync plugin at version 2.3.8. Also running the iOS client 2.3.4. If I do the following, I cannot get the iOS device to find the FreeNAS server and start doing a camera roll backup: Configure the FreeNAS btsync plugin to disable non-LAN connections: folder_defaults.use_relay = false folder_defaults.use_tracker = false folder_defaults.use_lan_broadcase = true Enable "Camera backup" on iOS device, email myself the link. Go to browser UI for FreeNAS btsync plugin, go to cogwheel at top
  10. Hi all, I have troubles automatically syncing directories in my user context with having the Sync instance encapsulated in a Docker container (having a Pro licence) Using the Sync-Dockerfile [1] [2] (afais Ubuntu 15.04), I have setup an instance on a Ubuntu based server and anothe rinstance on my Fedora 23 desktop. the server's data directory points to a btrfs subvolume, i.e., DATA_FOLDER="/data/sync/" > docker run -d --name Sync -p 127.0.0.1:$WEBUI_PORT:8888 -p 55555 -v $DATA_FOLDER:/mnt/sync --restart on-failure bittorrent/sync on the deskto
  11. This is probably a dumb question, but I haven't been able to find the answer in the forum or the support areas. What I would like to do is to sync files on two computers (COMPUTER-1 and COMPUTER-2) by using a third computer that is always online (ALWAYS-ONLINE-COMPUTER) using an Encrypted Folder, so the ALWAYS-ONLINE-COMPUTER only sees encrypted data, but COMPUTER-1 and COMPUTER-2 can sync even if they aren't both online simultaneously. And I would like the sync to be bi-directional, so files changed/added/deleted on COMPUTER-1 are synced to COMPUTER-2, and files changed/added/deleted on COMPU
  12. I was working on a big multi-file project with my friend over at his computer. this project was synced. after I returned home he calls me and says half of the files are gone. I tell him to look his history and the last thing he has is finished syncing. (the 33 minutes ago is 23:21) at the same time i look at my history and what I've got is a list of all the files deleted by him at 23:18. There is nothing about it in his history. I go into archive and there's a few old files from days earlier and one from today from 23:18, however in actuality it's a version from the day before.
  13. To match the capability of the computer app, It would be extraordinarily beneficial to be able to selectively sync a single sub-folder inside of a shared folder, and have all of its contents automatically synced. I believe this is most essential on mobile where I would need to access a few photos quickly, without waiting for every item to download, yet conserving storage space as much as possible.
  14. I'm using the basic Sync app (not Pro) to synchronize a folder between my Samsung Note Pro tablet and my Motorola DROID Turbo 2 phone. It worked like a charm earlier today (synching several GBs of data both ways between my devices), but after disconnecting and reconnecting my phone to WiFi, now neither device can seem to "see" the other; each device shows the other as "Offline." Both are on the same WiFi network (don't think that's necessary, but they are), and both have Internet access. Restarting the Sync app on both devices hasn't made any difference. Is there any way to refresh that s
  15. My Android Pictures folder sync'd just fine. Then I went Add backup -> ADD CAMERA BACKUP. Now Camera backup shows "0 files, 0 B" even when there are over a hundred photos in SDCARD/DCIM folder and Camera is set to save in SDCARD. How can I backup my photos from camera?
  16. Hi.. I use Sync on my Android Samsung Galaxy S4, my wife's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 & a Galaxy Tab S to backup photos, and also to sync a file of music between devices, and selective sync some photos and documents (I have a pro license) - I also use Sync on a 2 desktop computers and three laptops (all Windows 10). All devices are kept up to date. A few days ago the Android devices stopped backing up, and although sync is still running all the folders are listed as disconnected and the camera backup isn't present. If I restart the camera backup it creates a new file and starts from scratch
  17. I'm using Sync with about 10 people and it's transferring/managing about 150 GB between multiple machines. As of about two weeks ago, it's been generating Conflict copies left and right. Yesterday I cleaned out 127,000 Conflict copies (various and random throughout the folders and files) and today cleaned out another 38,000 generated. Looking to get a more permanent fix for this as it's filling up my coworker's hard drives and creating a lot of confusion/chaos. - Joshua
  18. Hi, I just was curious about the function of folders when they are copied. When I copy a folder from one hard drive (#1) that has a folder already being synced to another computer's (#2), when viewed on the new hard drive which I copied it onto (#3) it has the Sync label in the Mac finder view. Does this mean that the new copied folder onto the 3rd external drive will also be synced? It is under a different name and is not listed under the folders when opened in Sync, it is just the view in the finder that leads me to believe that. The drive #3 is a backup of sorts, if that makes a
  19. I have a folder in a Mac desktop synced to a Windows Phone 10. The folder name in the Mac is “Books”, the name in WP10 at first was also “Books”. At some point I removed this folder in WP10 and started over (just to learn how it all works). Now that same folder shows up as “Books (2)” in WP10. Back and forth (both with settings and help center) I can not find how to rename this folder back to “Books”, as it is in the desktop. I would appreciate any help, thank you.
  20. I'm using QNAP TS451 with 4.2 firmware. I plan to sync photos across my iPhone and wife's iPhone, or at least back them up on the server. Every other app has sucked so far, so this looked promising. First time I loaded the qpkg just by searching with the built in QNAP app manager (ver 2.3.6) and though the btsync screen loaded beautifully and was user friendly, if I tried to link my phone and set a destination folder, it errors saying "sync doesn't have permissions to this folder" no matter where I put it. Even pre creating the folder in QNAP. I tried to change permissions to give
  21. I'm quite impressed with the app but I have one large issue that needs to be resolved. When files are synced, the source file creation and modification dates are not being synced correctly. The source file's creation date becomes the destination file's modification date and the destination file's creation date/time becomes the date/time of the transfer. This is not correct behavior and it is very misleading and confusing when trying to compare file versions, especially on things like photo files. I shouldn't have to dig into the metadata under the file's properties/info tab to see when a pictu
  22. I'm trying to install BTsync on on a Raspberry Pi B+ (Jessie), I followed the instructions on the blog and added the offical linux packages, it installed OK and I ran: sudo service btsync start Then checking status seemed to suggest that everything was working OK, however I can't access the gui from another machine on the network to complete setup I'm using: 192.168.1.100:8888/gui (I've confirmed the pi IP is correct with ifconfig). It seems I either need to complete an extra step of set up somehow?
  23. We have a problem with sync producing hundreds of (usually empty) *.Conflict folders and the debug log is producing 100MB per hour of crap. A lot of it is stuff like: [20160412 10:00:01.486] JOURNAL[0123]: won't perform job for entry "Admin/Admin/DAGLIG DRIFT/ANSETTELSER/Petter Gillebo/215.05 Tidsbegrenset arbeids.textClipping/com.apple.ResourceFork" - parent has fs error [20160412 10:00:01.486] JOURNAL[0123]: Setup entry job "FileEntryJob" for path "Admin/Admin/DAGLIG DRIFT/ANSETTELSER/Petter Gillebo/215.05 Tidsbegrenset arbeids.textClipping/com.apple.ResourceFork", next state is "COMPLET
  24. Hi, Having had a ton of issues that I've been able to surmount (namely permissions issues that I could only fix by copying all my files to a new share on the same source NAS), I'm now unable to get this working, and here I came for help. The purpose of my bitsync install is to keep a working server in my company synced with a backup server which I'll keep home after the initial sync (~3.3Tb) has taken place locally. My target NAS is using bittorent sync 1.4, as it is the latest available version for qoriq based Synology NAS, but I have been able to install everything, setup a sh
  25. I configured camera backup on my Windows Phone App. First time sync to my PC is done perfectly. However: if I remove a picture from my phone, it remains on PC. Is there a way to have a real "sync": just keeping both libraries in sync with the same information?
