  1. I've used BitTorrent Sync 1.4.111 on my family network for years, with some extremely large shares. I am considering upgrading to Resilio Sync Free. But I haven't been able to find a clear description of the features this version offers, especially as compared to the old BitTorrent Sync. It looks like the pro versions of Resilio offer some interesting features that may be worthwhile to upgrade to if I find the base product works well, but before I go to the great deal of time and trouble to switch over, I need to make sure I won't run into some artificial limitation like number of shares or size of file. Also, can Resilio Sync work with shares with BitTorrent Sync - that is, other nodes which have not yet been upgraded? Or does everything have to be upgraded all at once for it to work? Thanks.

  3. Hi, Certainly heard of BitTorrent Sync never used it. So today I'll find a good opportunity to test BitTorrent Sync. I want to sync a remote server with my Synology NAS. Tried to install the latest package from this site but it fails to install. It outputs "This package is not supported on the platform of RackStation" I think this error is related to the DSM 5.2-5532 Update 1 I'm running. Is it possible to fix this? Edit: I have a RS2414+ so I tried to installed the x64 version
  4. Hi, Maybe the question can be stupid, but if I use a permanent server which is a kind of P2P client but always available, is it possible to use it as a DLNA server with BitTorrent Sync ? The server and all DLNA devices are in the same LAN (at home). Good night

  6. Hi - I have just found BitTorrent Sync and I am so happy! My question is - am I able to set up a sync to my D-Link DNS-320 NAS from my computers? I run a Toshiba A500 Laptop as a "main computer", doing a lot of computing work at home. I have a second Toshiba P850 Laptop as my "travelling" computer - which I take on-site for business. I would like to sync both Laptops to the NAS to provide a single source of files generated off both those laptops. I read the posting entitled Supported NAS (01 Feb 2013) but I don't understand most of what's posted. To be clear - I only want to sync from the Laptops to the NAS one way. Thanks in advance for any responses!
  7. It happens to me that some temporary files are not proporely synchroized and when they are deleted in the original folder (after closing the creating program) their .!Sync copies on connected folders are not deleted and stay in inconsistent stage. I know I should probably exclude such files from synchronizaton but nevertheless such behavior seems to be wrong. Anybody with similar experience and with a clue how to avoid such problems?
  8. Today we are proud to introduce to all the BitTorrent Sync community a new product we have just launched: Syncmade ( Syncmade allows you to add a cloud presence to BitTorrent Sync without the hassle of purchasing a server and configuring UNIX-based BitTorrent Sync on it. Such cloud presence will allow you to keep your files online 24/7 while at the same time boost transfer rates by adding a 1Gbps peer to your BitTorrent Sync network. Syncmade brings competitive advantages for general users by offering cloud geography, or the option to select where the files should get hosted among various companies and datacenters around the world (with adjusted pricing). Syncmade finally allows you to make sure your files stay within a certain jurisdiction or under the indirect management of a certain company. Syncmade is also great because it allows you to store only the encrypted secrets associated with your folders (either by generating some for you or by letting you input your own). This will turn the cloud space into a ‘zero-knowledge’ capacity where only you will be able to decrypt the files. Finally, Syncmade is beautiful and secure. It comes with latest SSL standards and perfect forward secrecacy principles in mind. It is built with state-of-the-art HTML5 techniques, making it Retina-ready and compatible with any device, desktop or mobile. You can take a look at Syncmade @ and learn more about our SaaS @ We will be happy to hear any feedback you may have about our project. We have a long roadmap that already involves increasing presence in many more datacenters/with more companies throughout the world, increasing the size of our free package, decreasing the price of our cheapest one, fully developing the web-based file manager and launching several disruptive features we already have in mind. If you are deciding to give us a try, open a support ticket and tell us that you are coming from this article, we will double the virtual space you have, either it is free or paid. Best personal regards to each and everyone, Paul HUSTIN Founder of Syncmade and the Syncmade team (Maxim, Agnès, Pauline, Taty, Wayne & Steve)
  9. When trying to start the bittorrent sync client with --config, to use the API on Mac OS X Mavericks the client just exits immediately. No output is given on stdout, no log is written in /Users/<me>/Library/Application Support/BitTorrent Sync/sync.log nothing. No hints. If I run the same command without --config it runs just fine and properly starts the client (with UI) as expected. I'm using the latest 1.3.109, but for sakes of testing also tried a 1.3.106 I found. See below for relevant details. Help? Thanks in advance! bash-3.2$ pwd /Applications/btsync/BitTorrent$ ls BitTorrent Sync config.jsonbash-3.2$ cat config.json { "storage_path" : "~/.BtSyncAPI", "use_gui" : false, "webui" : { "listen" : "", "login" : "thatcher", "password" : "somesecret", "api_key" : "** my api key**" }}bash-3.2$ ./BitTorrent\ Sync --config config.json bash-3.2$
  10. Hello, We are a Software Development Shop that uses file synchonization in order to develop on Windows and automatically sync source code changes to our linux servers and reload our development servers automatically. We've been using Dropbox for months, and recently decided to give BitTorrent Sync a try and we noticed that it takes for Dropbox usually 5 to 10 seconds max to sync changes to the server whereas BitTorrent Sync takes about 15 - 20 seconds. We think that the problem actually is not due to data transfer protocol latency but due to the Windows file watcher taking more time to pick up changes. We reached this conclusion observing the BitTorrent Sync system tray icon and it's notifications. We'll be happy to cooperate to try and resolve the issue as we love BitTorrent Sync and the flexibility it provides and would love to move over. Thanks, Ronen
  11. Hello, Since I installed bittorrent sync (and nothing else), my laptop seems to freeze for a couple of seconds, when coming out of standby, behavior that didn't exist prior to installing it. Environment: Windows 8.1 64 bit Syncing with a folder on unbuntu 12.04.4 Thanks, Ronen
  12. Hello, I had setup bittoorent sync on my DNS-320 few weeks ago based on the helpful instruction at here, (thanks for providing the info) Everything worked very well for few weeks and all of sudden the web gui does not open again. Any hint where to start troubleshooting? Many thanks! F.
  13. Hi, I took a look around the forum and internet and couldn't find a solution. But basically my problem is this. My brother's laptop got stolen and we had a synced folder together. After his laptop was stolen I noticed that the folder continued to sync (that the person who had stolen his laptop was using the computer and didn't realize that bittorrent sync was still working). He didn't have find my mac enabled so there's no way to track this guy, except maybe through the ip. Does anyone know if bittorrent sync saves or I could view the ip address of the connected folder? I'm not even sure if btsync works that way but I thought I'd give it a try to help him out.
  14. I'm new to playing with BT sync and I recently setup a ~188GB folder to sync on my laptop. I then went to another machine on my LAN, added a new folder and copied the Read Only key to it. When I clicked OK, I got the error "You don't have enough permissions to share part of a read-only folder. Please choose another folder." This is odd because I have another subdirectory in the same parent directory that has a folder that syncs just fine. What can cause this?
  15. My computer uses 1.2.82. My tablet is using the latest android version. Whenever the screen of the tablet is off, the syncing stopped. I have used "better wifi on/off" app to keep WIFI always on and the sync speed goes down to about 6 KB/s from about 1 MB/s when the screen is off. When I turned on the screen, the sync speed immediately jumps back up. Android 4.1.1 on Iconia A210.
  16. Hi guys, Looking for some help. I have two computer that I have set up to sync, but now I'm looking to create a back up on the laptop that also syncs an external drive. When I try and use the same key, bittorrent sync says "Selected folder is already uploaded". So I guess my question is: is there a way to get bittorrent to sync a total of 3 folders, with two of those being on the same computer? or should I look for another software to handle the two folders on the same computer? Thanks, -Myles
  17. Some countries are crazy when it comes to punishing torrent users, and some users want to be a bit extra prepared just to be on the safe side. Some people prefer their personal privacy. Lets just say if someone for instance where an active TPB user, downloading american shows, but don't want to be detected by people who wishes to cause problems. Would this scenario be a safe way to hide behind the radar?: 1: Use a browser through a proxy, for instance Tor to look on TPB for desired torrents. 2: Use an anonymous vps, which has a torrent client installed and web UI to add the torrents and download them on the VPS. 3: Transfer the media file after torrent is completed using BitTorrent Sync to my personal computer to enjoy the show. Is this a secure solution, or do you recommend something else?
  18. I'm probably missing something entirely, but anyway - I just installed the android app, added a folder and connected it using a QR code from my Ubuntu desktop. On the screen with the folders it reads one connected device, but when I open the folder it won't display any files - neither on device, nor in the remote tab, although I added two PDF files to the desktop folder. Additionally, on the desktop main screen, next to the same folder there are no connected devices listed. The two set-ups: - Phone is Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 with the I9505XXUBMEA baseband. Bittorrent Sync v1.1.23 - Ubuntu 12.04, 32-bit, Xfce, Bittorrent Sync v1.1.42
  19. A couple days ago I awoke one of my computers from a week-long slumber (it had been turned off while I was moving). While the computer was sleeping, I had been editing the contents of the Sync'd folder on other computers (i.e., creating files, saving changes to files, etc.). When my computer awoke, about 90% of the folder contents (subfolders, files, etc.) were deleted on all 4 of the computers to which the folder was Sync'd. I had all of my stuff backed up in multiple locations, plus BitTorrent Sync keeps deleted files in the .SyncTrash folder. So all of my stuff was recovered. What gives? Why didn't the newly-awoken computer simply have the new files added to it? I've been using Syncing programs for years now (from LiveSync to LiveMesh to DropBox to Cubby, now BTS), and I've never had this problem before. I did not delete these folders myself, not even on 1 of the computers. Is this a known Bug, or is there a weird setting I need to adjust?
  20. I started using Sync with Ubuntu 12.04 last week. Over the weekend, for some reason the size of one folder in the hidden .SyncTrash directory skyrocketed, and when I started using the computer today my hard drive was completely full. I was wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar and might know what caused this problem, and what I can do to avoid it in the future. Thanks.
