Hi, I learn that recently you have added a feature for sync to be installed on SD card for windows phone. This is very good. The probleme is that the file is still hidden inside the app jail. Not seeing the file is not a probleme for me... the only think I would like is to see the file inside my music library. What I am trying to do is to have a share database of my music, and the trasfere via torrent of music inside my phone is jut what i was looking for... The idea is, groove is made to discover music on sd card and index them inside his library. and apparently groove (the windows music app) is not able to see the music file stored inside the Sync Jail. I wonder if there is a way for this to happen, like a third party app that we can download, or i missed something, or you are about to code something that way ? thank you for all
I just lost a lot of my data. I'm lucky not all my peers were online. I recovering the data now. I installed Bit Sync 2.0 on 4 devices. Two desktops, a home server, and finally a Surface. Everything seemed to be fine until I installed it on the Surface. The Surface likes to sleep often, and that hasn't ever bothered me before. I setup Bit Sync by adding it to my devices. It started syncing. Then the Surface went to sleep. When I woke it up, Bit Sync seemed a little notification happy, and was pinging me a lot saying my folders were sync, even though there are only 4. During this though, Bit Sync froze, "Not Responding". It was fine, I ended the task, did some Windows updates, and restarted. On restart Bit Sync asked if this was my first device. Odd.. I did that already. I said no, went through the process of adding it again. This time I kept the computer a wake a bit to make sure it was syncing alright, and wouldn't lock up if the computer went to sleep. While it started syncing again I checked my server. Pretty much every file was gone. I checked the history, and my Surface supposedly removed all the files. I am guessing because of the failed first setup, when it was setup again the second time, it saw the empty folders and proceeded to wipe all my files. Also I should note my device list has the Surface listed twice, which concerns me. I'm afraid it might get confused again, and wipe any files I add again. I've only been using it 4 days, and this is pretty frustrating first experience. It makes me realize I can't trust Bit Sync to wipe my files, and if it does, there's no way to recover them unless one of my devices is offline.
After a share is completed, I would be interested in a button or rightclick menu option to do a MD5 integrity check on each file in the share automatically to make sure the hard drive or data is not corrupted, and that the data is exacting as it is copied. I am actually using this as a RAID across a 1TB harddrive and would like to make sure the one folder is exact compared to the other folder. I dont care how long it takes. that is not a factor. I have had corrupted torrents and aftera forced recheck, it drops the damaged package, and just redownloads a new packet to fill in the spot. It would be great to have that kind of file security on this system as well. This isnt just for the software, sometimes the hardware such as a harddrive or something goes bad and will not write data correctly to a particular sector or seg. I would like to be able to verify after that the data is exacting regardless of all else. Would it be too hard to integrate to make a VERIFY INTEGRITY button and make it MD5 Hash possibly files in the structure systematically?
I would be interested in a feature that would allow me to set a download location maybe specifically or some "Default" folder in the OS to download files to.... then as the downloading files complete, it moves them to the folder structure in the place they should be. ISSUE #1 There are a couple issues being addressed here.... One is that "IF I see the file, its complete." I have had a couple instances where it was done syncing, and just hasnt reindexed yet, and had not completed each file download. Meaning I dont take my laptop to the office thinking its done syncing only to find out there is a file there, its just a MYFILENAME.!ut file and not yet complete functional file. I want to be able to, "IF I see the file there, its complete" ISSUE #2 The second issue is INDEXING. I have indexed huge file structures in the past, in the process one PC indexed files that were already *.!ut files as files that were not supposed to be indexed. These files were still in the process of being downloaded and were incomplete. I am unsure why, There are several fixes for this. For example, You can use only one index file located on one PC for all sharing PCs to copy from. This can help solve the problem, You can possibly just make a default exclusion for all software created files. For example, Make a rule to never index *.!ut and any other software fabricated file ending. I would not mind personally having a cache file that files just download into, so that the *.!ut files are not located inside the actual Indexable file structure. Keeping the created files separate from the Indexable files will guarantee that none of my files will be damaged in the future. due to incorrect indexing. ISSUE 3# Fragmentation - Just want the files to be one contiginous file on disk. That is all. (maybe just reserve space on disk ahead of time?) So to solve all issues with one stone, I think a cache folder would do the trick best! This will let me know for sure that if I see it there, its complete. and also, this will keep non-bittorrent related files out of my file structure preventing fatal data errors and losses, and finally, the move of one complete file into its folder can if done right handle the fragmentation issue as well. Mike!
