  1. I recently upgraded from 2.0.?? to 2.1.4 (79). Formerly, I was able to look at the sync history and identify which machines had finished syncing, or had added/removed files. It was very convenient. Now, all it tells me for each machine is "Remote peer". This is totally useless now. I have 10 computers syncing, how can I tell which ones have synced or not now? History now tells me 8 times, "Finished syncing with Remote peer". Which ones have not? Why was this change made? How can I get peer names back?
  2. Image files and video files will be displayed as thumbnails when downloaded. If you replace the file with another file with the same name, the previous thumbnail will be displayed. I tried deleting the cache, but it didn't work. Please tell me how to display the correct thumbnail or disable the thumbnails.
  3. I have a fresh install of Sync. On startup, Sync main window pops-up. It should stay minimized. Sync version and system OS details attached.
  4. We have been using Sync for 3 years now and still, once every couple of months need to audit the system to make sure that files have not been randomly deleted. I frequently have designers and producers come to my office and ask if files were moved. Entire folders and the content are being deleted and we can not figure out what is causing it. We can sometimes narrow it down to the machine that caused it, but not why they are deleted. Generally, If caught early enough, I can recover the files from the Archive folder, but it requires hours of cross-referencing to make sure we have everything that
  5. I have one machine in a group of 7 peers. It is randomly getting false status messages that it has been "disconnected by owner". I can't find any history of this happening to others. Furthermore, we're not using the paid features of BT Sync 2.0, so we don't actually have the capability to disconnect this machine except from the machine itself. I can't find anything in the log file that seems to indicate the disconnection that's going on. Can anyone offer some insight into what's happening? Thanks, -Kody
  6. I use plenty of apps that start in the background, whose windows I can access via the taskbar and they do not add a window to the desktop on startup. Examples: Backup and Sync from Google, Radeon Settings, Wincompose, Discord... They all have windows I can make appear via their taskbar menus, and yet, they do not do so unprompted on each startup. This issue appeared before. Although it was marked solved, after windows updated, the problem reappeared. Old thread: Sync Version
  7. Hi folks, I am a user of SYNC PRO, and I bought essentially because of the Placeholder function. But, before I get it to work, I made a case study of the possible behaviours of the program, and found three critical consequences, and two worrisomes actions. The criticals (in RED) in my opinion condemns its use because the original file is lost, if the unsuspecting user make the refered actions in the local computer! The worrisomes actions in orange only erase a file copy, but is undesirable too. This infos is summarized in the table. PH is the abbreviation of Placeholder. I
  8. For a really long time the Resilio icon in the macOS menubar has been set in front of a non-transparent background that makes it stand out in comparison to all other icons. It is really distracting and unaesthetic. I would love to see a fix. The problem appears in both the white and black menu bars, even with the macOS accessibility feature 'reduce transparency' activated.
  9. I am developer and I am using git for some chess module - as many others. I want sync my repositories between machines - as many others. What happen: I setup Sync on git repository path like "git-repos/git-xxx" on computer Alice. I setup Sync on other computer Bob and copy read-write code from Alice. Files was synced from Alice->Bob I do some development ... and push to Bob git repository branch e-xxx. Some files was synced but some not synced so on Alice there is not branch e-xxx. I do some compare to learn what happen. It is happen that Alic
  10. I just performed a sync using BitTorrent Sync v1.4.110. I am 100% certain BitTorrent Sync overwrote newer files with older files. I don't have any idea why it would do this, except for a serious bug. The file dates and file contents clearly show that new files were overwitten by old versions. I had performed a backup of some of the data before enabling the sync, and the backup confirms the problem. A little more detail: I had previously used BitTorrent Sync on these folders using 1.4.9x. Only 2 computers are using BTSync and they run the Windows 64-bit version. They are on the same w
  11. I found a bug in BTSync that is causing Window File explorer to hang for 30+ seconds when right clicking on files on a network share. It appears to be the "Share with BitTorrent Sync" contect menu When I disable the BTSync's context menu using ShellExView My right click works just fine and does not hang file explorer. I have been having this issue for almost a year now on multiple computers running windows 7. Today I tracked it down to BTSync by trial and error. I just updated to the latest and greatest BTsync 2.2.7(160) with the same re
  12. I've installed resilio sync on a couple new devices and I'm seeing inconsistent and incorrect behavior. Each of the last four machines I set to Disconnect state when initializing them, but as soon as I committed the setting, resilio sync started downloading all shares, and not selective. This causes a massive disruption, as the system then slows down so much that it takes forever for me to change each of the 40 shares back to disconnected and delete all the accidental share additions. Is anyone else experiencing something similar? Any ideas on how to fix this?
  13. Windows 10 Pro x64. System has 2 disks: Disk1: "C:" - Small SSD with system, and user accounts and documents (some folders syncing with resilio). Disk2: "D:" - Larger disk with a large synced folder. Say "D:\Data" "Default folder location:" was located at "C:\Users\<username>\SyncFolder" but was empty and NOT USED to sync anything. System was running unattended, for several days. When I checked today the system was choking for lack of disk space. It turned out that Resilio Sync had substituted for "D:\Data" a folder "C:\Users\<username>\SyncFolder\Data" As a
  14. Hello, first of all to thank you for very nice software which really just sits and feels very solid and reliable.. but there are couple of difficulties that doesn't let my heart let it in yet. I have setup the Resilio Sync system like this: I have 2 PCs and one Android phone connected to Raspberry Pi 2, and all of them having Resilio software. PCs get to sync everything and all deleted and changed files gets archived and then replaced by the new version. The problem now is that the same doesn't happen for Android. Android syncs all the files to the Resilio on Raspberry and one of the PCs,
  15. I installed resillio in linux (running feren OS 2017.) following the intructions given in help page It was successful and much more simplified. I almost synced 98% of all my files. My laptop ran out of battery and I had to restart my session. But when I tried to log back in to the webUI,my password and username was not accepted. I am 1000% sure my password was correct and I even verified it as my browser saved it. I tried many other combinations like default password (googled it for resilio),none worked. So I remov
  16. With selective sync enabled, if I double click a placeholder file in Finder it will begin downloading it from a peer. If I double click the placeholder file again before it has completed downloading (let's say I'm impatient...), the file disappears altogether from Finder. Once the download completes, the original file is correctly shown again. This is problematic because (AFAICT) I lose the ability to cancel the sync of the file.
  17. Just a heads up for any one using the aur package on arch linux. It seems like the resilio sync from aur has the wrong pid_file option in the default config in /etc/. This line "pid_file" : "/var/run/btsync/" should be "pid_file" : "/var/run/rslsync/". The error disabled the startup service. systemctl status rslsync.service returned ‚óŹ rslsync.service - Resilio Sync service Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/rslsync.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2016-11-11 14:25:25 CET; 19min ago Main PID: 10
  18. I've been using bittorrent sync for a few months now and it is a lifesaver, but I recently discovered that when OS X aliases (similar to Windows shortcuts) are sync'd they are no longer recognized as aliases and do not work properly. For example, I have a folder sync'd between 2 Macs (both running OS X 10.8.4). When I create an alias to a .pptx file on Mac A, Mac B sees it as just a .pptx file (not an alias to a .pptx file) when it receives the sync. Therefore, when I try to open it, Powerpoint is launched and gives me an error that the file is bad, instead of the original file (that the alias
  19. Hello, I have been having problems with disappearing/deleted files in folders. Folders that previously contained multiple text files and images, suddenly contain no files at all. I now have many empty folders. I use my Time Machine backup to find the files again and restore them, or I find the files in the archive folder. This is not always possible and leads to complete loss of data and is very frustrating. I also find several files that are 0 KB. This seems to happen especially to .pages files and not to .doc files. There again I need to use my Time Machine backup or
  20. Hello! I have two freebsd 64 storages, one master (RW), second slave (RO). Today i upgrade my freebsd storages to 2.3.7 and folders stop syncing.

  21. I have been using BTS sync and I used the sync pro trial. After the trial ended, I discovered a lot of my photo files are now placeholder files. When I double click on them, it says that they are in queue, but this behavior has been going on for months, and through several updates of the program. It seems like either BTS has erased my files or they are being held hostage until I pay for the business version. If it is a one way conversion to try the paid version, I wish you had said that up front and I would have been happy to continue to use the free version. I am trying to th
  22. Hi, I made one small tweak to my config yesterday and since then, BTSync (latest official Linux version) no longer starts. Systemd kills it immediately, then retries infinitely, failing constantly. The change I made was the download directory for all the folders, from /path/a/b to /path/b. All paths exist and are accessible. The .sync folders are still present (though I did try deleting them all to see if that was causing an issue). Nothing else has changed. I've removed and purged btsync with apt-get, tried a basic config as well as my normal one. I've even tried the standard e
  23. I had a windows desktop and 2 android pads been synced for 1 folder with BTsync. I add some folder (with files) on desktop BTsync folder, and these will auto be synced with other 2 android pads, which is worked very good. eg: BTsyncRootFolder\sampleSyncFolder BTsyncRootFolder\sampleSyncFolder\file1 BTsyncRootFolder\sampleSyncFolder\file2 BTsyncRootFolder\sampleSyncFolder\file3 but problem is when I delete the folder (and the files in it), an empty folder keep coming back, eg: BTsyncRootFolder\sampleSyncFolder the only way I can get rid of this is I have to manually delete these empt
  24. Previously I was asked me to wait for until an update to the web UI about a bug I was having with cookies. With 1.3.105 the problem is still there. I've boiled the problem down to the smallest test case I can. Basicly if there is a cookie with a name that ends with "GUID" the HTTP request for the web UI errors with "invalid request" for me. Doesn't matter what the cookie value is. Test script: Sample output: Repeat of this post.
  25. I use youtube-dl to download video from YouTube and sync the videos between my Synology and Android phone. The problem is, there are a lot of ????????.part files shown in the Android BT Sync client folder. I assume those .part files are temp file created by youtube-dl. Synology: 2.0.93-1 Android: 2.2.2 (376)
