  1. I am using resilio-sync on my android phone and seem unable to setup a read-only share (e.g. a share that if I delete a file on my android it is also deleted on the target machine). For example I want my Camera folder to be shared as read-only unto my raspberry; when I delete a photo on the phone I want it gone forever. There seems to only be an option for backup mode. Am I missing something? If not, why is this feature not available for the mobile (android) and can we expect it anytime soon? P.S. I am aware of this (https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/206216565-How-to-
  2. I have created a photos backup with the Android app and it's working great. Now I want to create a new custom backup for my Signal backups. Add Add backup Custom Navigate to path Choose Folder Add Immediately taken back to the Folders list and the new backup definition is not present Anyone else run into this? Any workarounds? Version: 2.6.4 (8693) on Android 10, Google Pixel 3.
  3. Hello I'm trying to always have synchronized a folder between my NAS and my smartphone. I usually do any kind of operations with files and folders on both devices. I don't need a cloud, but just what Resilio is supposed to be. So I’m using MyCloud with BitTorrent (synchronizing a folder in an ext4 filesystem) and a Samsung S7 with Resilio Sync (synchronizing a folder in an exFAT filesystem on a mSD card). Apparently, all is working fine … but when I pay attention, is not working exactly as it should. I can create/delete/move folders in both devices (smartphone and WDNAS) and changes are c
  4. 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. Yeste
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Hello, I have created a new subfolder (through the Sync android app) inside an already synced folder. Since this new subfolder is empty, I can see the message "This folder is empty", but when I'm selecting a file to add, the file explorer just closes and the file is not added into Sync. And when I try to copy the file directly to my subfolder using the file explorer app, Sync still shows the folder as empty (even though a file now exists in the subfolder). Is there something obvious I'm missing?
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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 manual
  11. 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 awa
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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, an
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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 a
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. 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
