  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. A few years back, several cloud backup providers started to offer Resilio (back then BitTorrent Sync) backup server services. It was really simple, all you had to do is configure the encrypted RO folder and done. I understand that I can setup a personal backup by having a friend hosting my Resilio folders on their machine but if that's not an option, does anyone know about a cloud service provider offering Resilio backup services?
  4. I understand that Resilio is peer to peer solution and there is no centralized server storing the data. I just want to know what would happen to my data if I loose all of my devices that store it? Is there a way in Resilio to recover it or because Resilio doesn't store data on it's servers, there is no way to recover?
  5. Hello, I want to not only backup my personal documemts/files etc to my Synology NAS, but also access them externally. I have libraries in iTunes plus Photos app. Is there a good setup/configuration I can use?
  6. Hi, We. Have tested the access to older versions of office documents, spread over >5 machines. Due to the sync method used there is no "checkout" process and it will happen that document versions have "burried" changes, there are 2 issues with this: A) version numbers do not indicate the same file on all sync clients. This can lead to confusions when cooperating (especially in the same room). not all versions of a saved file are stored local If there would be a configuration switch to just copy all saved versions in a monitored folder to the .syncarchive local changes would also be cept.
  7. Good Morning - I've used Resilio sync for a while now - well before it was BTSync. I own a Pro license and mostly use the service to actively sync folders between my PC and mobile devices for backup and file sharing purposes. One thing I haven't ever been able to get configured correctly was where a folder shared from my phone would only Read and not Write to my PC. Even when setting a shared folder as "Read", it still syncs files in both locations. This morning, I thought I'd try the "Backup" feature so after selecting the folder on my phone, clicked the "My Devices" option for my PC
  8. Hi, Since I switched to version 2.0, I use the feature "My devices" in order to sync easily my folders. But with this feature I can't configure the access mode (readonly or read&write) so since this version I cannot use it to backup folder because if I modify or delete a file on my backup server, it will do the change on the other device. Did you plan to add more sharing options on "my devices" ? Or maybe define a device as a "backup device" so a change on this device will not propagate it on others. It would be great. I suppose that if I want to use this kind of backup feature at this
  9. Trying out Resilio since Crashplan is giving up its non-business support. I have one Windows computer that securely stores all of my files (File Server). Other computers connect to that machine for file access. Resilio seems well provisioned to handle this task. I would, however, like to back up the File Server to a locally connected raid array. How can I set up Resilio to mirror the files on the File Server to a raid array connected to the same machine? Thx RB
  10. Hello, I'm about to reset my Android phone and before I do that, I would like to be able to backup my Resilio Sync current configuration of synced folders and settings. How can I do this? Thanks in advance, Shai
  11. I have my Camera Backup enabled; it successfully identifies two MBP's; one connects and syncs flawlessly; the other hangs 'Connecting...' and is, oddly, on the same wifi as the iPhone. Why won't it connect? iOS 10.3.3 macOS Sierra
  12. I have a single seat PRO license and just got a new desktop computer. I have a folder on my old machine synced to a remote backup machine. I plan to use an external harddrive to move the complete folder from my old desktop to my new machine. Is there a best practices way to make this transfer without re-syncing all the files to the remote machine?
  13. Hi, Since updating from BTSync to Resilio sync i've noticed a problem with the folder structure of my iPhone backup folder. With BTSync all files would back up in one folder, with Resilio sync they back up successfully but are in separate folder, 101Apple, 102Apple, 103Apple etc? See pic attached. I've tried deleting and re-adding the backup folder, is there something i'm doing wrong?
  14. Pardon if I've missed this in the updates, etc. and understand the purpose of sync/resilio is to sync folders/files across computers, but is there a way to sync two folders on same computer? If not, please consider this feature. I'm not really looking for a backup program/utility, but would like something like the old Microsoft SyncToy but better/easier to manage, so I could keep a certain directory or directories on my system sync'd to a flash drive. And vice versa. Ideally, it would not only check the drive letter, but the label on the drive, before syncing so it doesn't try to s
  15. Hello, I've searched for this topic but I could not find an answer. I read that Resilio Sync does keep old version of modified files in the .sync folder, my questions is, how do I roll-back to an old version of the files? Does it have to be a manual process (renaming and moving each file) or does it have some kind of automated roll back process? I could not find anything about restoring old version on the web ui or web seaching... Thank you.
  16. In my family we have four phones that we want backed up to four individual computers, in two locations. So far sync has been great for creating a family backup/share system that remains constant between our two houses, but I'm unsure of how to proceed with the photo backups. What I'd like is for all the phones to drop their files into shared folder on a computer and then have those photos shared to the other computers. ie, the phone uploads each file once and once only. after that the syncing should be done between the other computers and any edits/deletes should sync across. I'm afr
  17. Hi, I have about 7TB of data that I need to backup onsite. My current plan involves using rsync to mirror the data from my Mac Mini server to my NAS every 3 hours. All changes and deletions are propagated. I am able to use the snapshot feature on new Synology NAS to provide backup history. This setup is very efficient from a data use perspective as only file changes take up space on the backup. However rsync is not playing nicely and I'm considering moving to Resilio for the data replication. My questions are: Has anyone used Resilio to replicate 7TB of data
  18. A lot of people on this forum have a Raspberry Pi using BitTorrent Sync. Over the last couple weeks, since the original blog post of Sync + WD + Raspberry Pi, I have been working on a script for everybody to use to install, update, backup and remove BitTorrent Sync on their Raspberry Pi easily without worrying how to actually do that. And now I am ready to let you guys know about it. It does exactly what you would think it does: Install, update, backup and remove an installation of BitTorrent Sync using that script. Not more, not less. You can check it out on my GitH
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Hi! I activated iOS photo backup und my iPhone 6S with iOS 9.2 (now 9.3) to sync my camera roll to my Mac. What works is that it incrementally adds my new photos to the Mac sync folder, but it does not remove the ones from my Mac that I deleted from the camera roll on my iPhone, i.e., sync is not working. What to do?
  22. Hi, Over the last month, I've had a lot of trouble with BTSync and had to reinstall several times. Each time I've done this, I have lost all the config options (mainly the shares). I'm now on the official debian version, but am confused which config files I should back-up. I want to get to the stage where I can install BTSync on a freshly formatted device, restore a config, and all the old settings and shares are there and working. Can anyone advise which folders and files are essential to be backed-up to make this happen? Thanks Will

  24. i have enabled camera backup on my iphone. Ive added folder on my mac that is going to be in-sync with the phone. On initial backup, it works. When I remove an image from my iphone - this is NOT reflected in my backup When I delete an image in my backup that is still on the phone - the image is NOT downloaded again. (i do get notification from app about readonly folder) The backup does not start automatically on iPhone - I have to open Sync app to start the sync. My major issue here is 2 and 3. I would like that my backup is a real reflection on what i have on the iPhone. For 4. - this wo
  25. Hi, I've been using Sync for a while now to backup my photos from my Android phone to an external drive. I just got a new iPhone and I want to use the same system as I have before. When I try to set it up, Sync automatically chooses a folder to back up to, which I don't want. I have tried just copying the key, and then trying to make a "manual connection" but that doesn't let me choose the folder either. How can I specify which folder I want my photos to be in? P.S. Can't really say that I'm enjoying 2.0 very much. Wtf happened?
