  1. Effected Machines: Android 4.4 BTSync Version: Windows 10 BTSync Version: 1.4.? (I'll have to check the specific version when I get home) Overview of the issue: I have been using BTSync with few issues for quite a while between my work machine (Debian Testing), my home machines (Windows 10 and Windows 7) and my phone (Android 4.4). However this morning I copied a file to my a sync folder on my phone. I then noticed sync wasn't running (likely due to a restart at some point a week or more previous). I started up the Sync application and it notified me it was re-indexing
  2. I have a laptop and a desktop computer, which has six user profiles. I have Sync set up on both of them and it syncs just fine as long as I am logged in on both computers and on my home network( I have not yet tried it outside of my network). However, if I am only logged into my laptop and I am not logged into the desktop or another user is logged in on the desktop, it well not sync. Is there a way to set Sync up so that I only have to be logged on to one computer for it to Sync?
  3. Hi, Can BitTorrent Sync be used to sync folders between two ReadyNAS devices over the internet? There seems to be lots of backup and replicate options but limited sync options. If so, which version of BitTorrent Sync do I need for 4 devices (2 x NAS, a desktop and a portable PC). Thanks is advance Seayeti
  4. I supose someone must have asked for this before, but searching in the forum I can't find it out. Sorry if duplicated. I don't know how to sync a mobile folder with read & write permissions. Always I try to share a folder in my android device its shared as "backup", so the chages I do in other devices are not push to the android device. I want to be able to delete files from a shared folder of my android device. I've read that from Android 4.4 the apps don't have permissions to write outside his own folder, so perhaps this is not posible. Thnks

    Ios Sdk?

    Is there any way / plan / etc. for developers to access to Sync by way of an SDK? While I don't have much use for the off-the-shell Sync app, Sync would be perfect for a technical challenge I face in an app that I'm developing. Thank you!
  6. Hi boys and girls, I bet this question must have been asked a gazillion times, but still i can't find a clear answer: Client (A ) runs sync with a readonly key and completely syncs with Read/Write client (B ), comes along R/W client (C ) when client (B ) is offline. Will client (A ) upload this new data to client (C ) although he's supposed to only have a read-key? Thank you!!! Max - Happy syncer
  7. Ive been trying to make the camera sync to work but the email link that I sent to myself is not doing anything. Weird.... yes. Im using Google Chrome browser in a Windows 7 machine. My phone is an iphone. After clicking the link I emailed to myself Chrome pops up with two buttons to choose. Install the 1.4 or Already have 1.4. I did the already have 1.4 because I did and nothing happened. I even check the Bittorrent interface to see whats happening and nothing. Then i tried it again this time I clicked the install 1.4. Installed it and go back to the previous window and still noting is happe
  8. Hey. I'm syncing Camera folder from my Oneplus One phone (great phone btw!) between my laptop, desktop and Rpi with NAS network drive. First two work without any problems (my oneplus photos&vids appear both on laptop and desktop), but when pasting the key to Rpi's sync via webpanel, I'm getting the "pending approval" message, but notification doesnt appear on my oneplus one phone. Versions of Sync: Oneplus one = Windows machines: 1.4.103 beta Rpi = 1.4.93 beta Thanks for any suggestions Qlex
  9. Hi please see the screenshot: I installed Sync on my NAS (Synology Diskstation DS411) - but the last sync date (I have not synced yet) is in the future! Will the sync take place anyways? Olaf
  10. I just set up some folders to sync to my PC... I love it! Two features that I though would automatically be possible is: 1) As an easy way to clean up the space on phone, to be able to deleted synced files on PC and propagate those deletions to the phones. 2) After realizing that option one is not possible because the added folders from phone seem to only have the "Read Only" option, I though if I at least delete files on phone it would propagate deletions to the PC. IO just found out about BitTorrentSync and trying a million things at once but is option 1 and/or two possible with s
  11. Hello. I am using Bittorrent Sync to sync my Win laptop and my Mac desktop. I use Mercurial as my versioning system (SCM). Mercurial creates in its repository several files that have "~2e" at the beginning of their filenames. These files are located inside the .hg folder used to maintain the repository. Unfortunately, Bittorrent Sync does not sync these files. Executing "hg verify" confirms that the synced repository (the one created by Bittorrent Sync) is corrupted. I made a comparison between the original repository and the synced repository (the one created by Bittorrent Sync) and the
  12. I was curious on how would be the best way to sync the entire drive (backup drive Z:\) to a Synology NAS. What I did was just set up a folder in the Diskdrive on Synology and synced the full Z drive with all its folders. However, does it make sense to sync the full, main directly with many folders inside or is it best to set up a sync for each individual folder in the Z drive ? I guess that will allow more flexibility when you only want to share a specific folder with someone instead of allowing them access to the whole drive. Or can you still share a specific folder from within a main
  13. Hello guys, I have the issue also that is described in a lot of topics The issue I read about a solution to add some info into a hidden file. But in each directory?!?! That can't be the solution right? I have around 2tb that has to be synced. Last time I lost files using BT Syn... I really hope this will be not be the case anymore?
  14. we have several folders shared with differents users in our company. Those folders are being syncing to a remote pc using "bittorrent sync" in read only mode. (backup sync) We have experienced a bug in the process. When we try to save an email attachment from outlook 2010 to a shared folder, sometimes we have the "can't save attachment" and sometimes haven't. Outlook saves a .tmp copy of the attachment and then it changes to the correct file. i think the problem happens when bittorent sync is syncing the temp file and keep it locked, so outlook can't finish the process and give us the error m
  15. Hi, i managed to install sync on the western digital my cloud ex 2 with ssh. Here you can find the procedure: Now i'm making some try and i'm stuck in a strange behavious: if i create a sync from the nas to a pc it goes great. if i create a sync from the pc to the nas (which is the main reason i made this) it told me: "Not enough free space on the drive" can you tell me why?
  16. so I have a folder structure as follows /opt | |customer_home| |-170129| |--reports/ |--www/ |--logs/however under customer home there are about 50,000 account id's. My intent is to ignore everything under logs and reports but sync /www I have placed my .SyncIgnore file at the root of my sync ( /opt/customer_home/.SyncIgnore ) with the following /*/logs/*/reports*.tgz*.tar*.cdr.json*.cdr.csv*.txt.tgz*.tar.gz*.pdf*.exe*.dmg*.zipbut it is still syncing files under logs and reports. I am using cl
  17. Hello, I have a working setup at home where 2 laptops connect through a switch would sync the files without connecting to the internet. edit : I know they synced locally because they where getting speeds of up to 20mb/s which my internet feed won't reach. I do however suspect they connected to the internet to find each other because at my corporate network I am behind multiple firewalls with IPS / IDS and all sorts of smart filters. Now they can't find each other even when they are in the same subnet with no firewalls in between them. Is there any way to let them find each other withou
  18. For the past two days, one computer has received no sync updates, though changes are made frequently. Log file shows activity as it should be but, the old file is still in place with the changed file not to be found. The receiving folder is read only. Release: 1.4.93 with file size of 4902 running on Windows 7 machines.
  19. Hello All, I wasn't able to find a post describing similar behaviour, so I'm hoping someone here can explain to me if what I'm noticing is normal or not. I've unchecked "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" but what I notice is that syncing doesn't resume until after the display wakes from sleep. Display is asleep, laptop is still running, hard-drive is not sleeping but the display is. I put my password in to see the desktop and then syncing resumes but not until I'm actively using the machine. What setting am I missing, or why is this happening? My assumption was that syncing would ha
  20. I have 3 devices connected to sync. 2 devices are synced, one device shows "out of sync" I suspect the sync ignore list which looks like this: On the windows devices: On the linux device: How can I find out the problem? edit: I tried created a new file which wasn't synced: [2014-10-21 22:19:25] MC[9E43] [2939]: will send file /test.txt[2014-10-21 22:19:25] SF[9E43] [2939]: State sync finished[2014-10-21 22:19:25] SF[9E43] [2939]: Going to sync state with peer[2014-10-21 22:19:25] ScheduledTask:SyncState invoked:immediately reason:FinishStateSync - sync not
  21. I understand that sync places a unique id into each folder to understand if a file has changed and if its over 4MB it will just redownload that 4MB chunk thats changed but what about folders....say I have a 507GB library of movies that me and my colleague have obtained over the years. Half are his, and half are mine and the idea was that we could act as an off site backup for each other as well as being able to share our media through Plex Media Server so we could still watch our movies in case one of our "servers" goes down for some reason. We performed a data hand off as transferring that mu
  22. Hi, how can I exclude files/folders with # (Number sign)? In my case I'm syncing a shared folder on my Synology NAS, and the default name for the trashbin is "#recycle". I have added that string to the IgnoreList but I suppose it is being being parsed as a comment instead of a part of the file/folder name. Thanks for the support
  23. Hey! I'm trying to create bittorrent volume with docker. It runs perfectly with root but running btsync with root doesn't keep file ownerships in place. So I build small bash script which detects ownership and creates new user with same uid&gid as files before starting btsync. When i try to run btsync with this new user $ sudo -H -u btsync bash -c 'btsync --config /btsync/config --nodaemon' I get this: btsync: /mnt/jenkins/workspace/Build-Sync-x64/linux/breakpad/client/linux/handler/minidump_descriptor.h:55: google_breakpad::MinidumpDescriptor::MinidumpDescriptor(const string&):
