  1. I had Windows 8 before, and after the update failed, the computer was locked. now I'm going to reinstall the system. I don't know that the system will be better. Windows 7 or Windows 10 , Thank you for your advice
  2. Hello, I'm having some problem syncing folders. I set up two devices to sync via the internet over a cable connection with decent up/down speeds. One machine is running Windows 7 the other is Windows 8. Both are running the latest build of BTSync 2.2. Originally I was running 1.4 but it was recommended to me that we upgrade to the latest to take care of some peer connecting problems. That issue seems to be fixed. I was able to consistently connect the peers and sync the two folders (although it took over 24 hours to sync 7 gigs of data at an average of ~60kbps... frustrating!) Now that the original sync is done, subsequent updates to one folder do not sync with the other folder. So for example a file copied from my local sync folder does not show up on the remote drive folder - ever. I know this is the case because I can log into that remote drive and watch what is happening with it real time. I think I've done all the easy stuff, like pausing and resuming the sync on the local drive several times. The local BTSync client still sees the peer and it has read/write priveledges to that folder. I have also tried manually uploading a file to that remote drive to see if it comes back to the local drive, but that direction doesn't work either. Periodically the folder status on the local machine will change to "indexing," but no data gets transferred. Most of the time the Status field is just blank. What's weird is that the history shows the folder "finished sync with [remote peer name]" but no data was transferred around that time. I even rebooted the software and rebooted the Windows 7 PC (which is the one local to me). Nothing. I'm stumped. It looks like BTSync did an OK job of getting the files to another drive once, but incremental changes... not so much. I'm losing the love with this idea of synchronization
  3. I'm a new user of Sync so please bear with me. We're synching two drives on two different LANs via the Internet. The sync happens beautifully, when it gets around to it. It seems to take a long time for the Bittorrent client to actually start synching once a drive gets updated. One would think that the sync would be fairly instantaneous from the point when a drive changes, but it's not. The client can sit there for many minutes before it decides to start the sync. First it starts indexing, then it it might change to "Out of Synch" for a while - sometimes a long while. Then eventually it will start the sync. Sometimes the status changes to "peer offline" even though nothing with the peers has changed. Sometimes the sync stops and the status goes back to "Out of Sync" The computers aren't going to sleep nor are they changing IP addresses or anything. Assuming nothing bad happens like a power outage, the peer availability issue usually self resolves. So is there a way to make that sync happen more instantaneously? I just turned on debug logging so I've got no data to post there. Our setup is pretty straight forward. We're synching two 4TB drives with about 7 GB of data. The Bittorrent Sync client is running on a PC with Windows 7 in one location, and on a newer PC with Windows 8 in the other location. The drives are actually attached to routers via ethernet in each location so files can be served across internal LANs in both places. Internet connectivity is cable internet with decent up/down speeds. We're running version 1.4.111 in both locations. Both PCs are set to never sleep.
  4. I have just one folder shared across a laptop and two desktop machines. Two machines are running Windows 7 and I am therefore running BT Sync 2.1; but the third machine needs to keep running Windows XP for the time being (long story!) and so I have BT Sync 1.3 on that. All was running fine, the two Win 7 machines upgraded to 2.0 when it came out and all continued without incident. Yesterday I had to reformat and fully reinstall on one of the Win 7 machines. I 'fiddled' with BT Sync without fully understanding what I was doing but eventually managed to get the two Win 7 machines talking to each other and syncing fine. However, I now seem to have broken the link between both of those and the third Win XP machine. Ver 2.1 on the Win 7 machines seems to have a 'key' which is different from the 'secret' in the Ver 1.3 install on Win XP... and when I try to copy the secret / key between the two machines, each says the code from the other is invalid. Any help welcomed here, please
  5. Hello, I am working with Windows 7-64 bit, chrome and internet explorer browsers, and Sync v2.0.93. I have been doing some research in the forums for some time now without success. I am trying to log into the web gui with, and I cannot seem to access it. I have some some posts about the older 1.0 versions able to access the gui with that address, but nothing about the newer versions. Ultimately, I am trying to create the config file, I figure if it runs in the browser, my information I am putting in the config file is correct. I am not completely sure Windows will use a config file. I am mainly finding information on Linux setup. Any help and links to documentation would be great.
  6. Hi Guys, can you please help me out here. The WebGUI is asking for a password and I don't know where's the config file to edit in Windows 7. Screenshot:
  7. Hi everyone. I finally seem to have solved the problems with the fixed port but I'm now experiencing very very slow syncing between my two computers (laptop with Linux Mint 14 at work and Desktop with Win7 64bit at home). I use BTSync to sync a couple of folders that contain important documents, so that I have them both at home and at the office. The sync is actually an upload from the laptop to the desktop, because I usually edit these files when I'm at work, and "backup" them to the desktop at home for both security and accessibility. I have a 50/10 mbit connection at home and a more "normal" ADSL connection (5/1 mbit) at the office. Not so good for upload, but still plenty of bandwidth for syncing just a few small files. Still, syncing is very slow, around 0.1 kB/s with peaks of 0.5 kB/s. But most of all, on both computers, one sync never completes (both ends saying the laptop has to upload 222.6 kB, which never happens though). [Edit: I solved this, it was a problem cause by two files with same name under Linux. Slow sync problem still happening though.] I can provide logs if needed. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  8. I have been very impressed with the BTSync software. I have been working with it over a month now; But lately I have had a couple of glitches on my Windows 7 Computers. I am using this as a backup platform for our remote employees to a Server here in the office. There was only one issue and that was I really didn't want to give 10 secrets per computer (for each folder). I found someone on one of these forums where there talked about a smarter way of backing up. Essentially he made a Folder and then a bunch of junctions under it. It WORKED! I have been using it under Windows XP and Windows 7, I had a glitch the other day and lost off of my secrets (oops) and at that time I figured why not upgrade to the latest version (1.1.12) this seemed to work very well for all of the XP computers. But lately I have been trying to install the 1.1.12 and 1.1.15 on the Windows 7 computers and when the BTSync software checks my folder it says its 45k ... not Meg not Gig (not always but it is always far less that the real byte count. One time I fixed this by finding a bad junction link I deleted it and it started updating to the correct byte / files could and worked. But as I continue to the next few computers (W7) I have not had such success and to get it working I had to go back and use a single secret for a single folder does anyone know why this is? And Any solutions? I have found this to happen on Windows 7 (32 Bit) as well As Windows 7 (64 Bit) And yes I am really anxious when I can deploy this using somesort of command line switches. To give credit where create is due I was talking about the Post at: http://forum.bittorr...-the-smart-way/ It really simplified what I was trying to do.. Thanks yottabit
