  1. Hi, I am trying out Resilio Sync I looked at the toppic: "Files deleted on desktop won't delete on Android device", as I am having the similar problem. My folders are set as "read & write" on Android -from there I started the sync, sent links to my PC, and synced. However - my folders are set as "copy only" ON my PC. And the option ON PC is greyed out - I can't change it. So - when I delete synced files on my PC - the files on the phone are not deleted. Question: can a free version Sync files or just copy from one device to the other? If yes - how can I change the option? Is there a bug at my installation of Sync? Thanks, cheers, Nika
  2. Hello, I clicked the + button and used "Create folder" to add my DCIM directory on my SD card to which my phone's camera saves all of my pictures. Initial sync made sure that all my photos are on my Desktop. Now that I've got them there, I moved (ie. deleted) them to another directory on my PC so they no longer exist (hence deleted) in the Resilio Sync directory. With Read/Write permissions, I would expect Sync to now delete this pictures from my Android device, but this didn't happen. What might I be doing wrong or did I not understand how Sync should work?

  3. Hello, i have a strange problem: I have to sync some files on a server with a remote co-worker. So i decided to use Resilio. The problem is that whenever he connects using the Shared Key R/W , some of the files in that folder disappear, and there's no log or anything Can you help me?
  4. Hi, I've recently moved from Sync to Resilio on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian. I had to restart the computer it's installed on and now when I go to the WebGui there aren't any of the settings or folders I had configured. This includes the licence file to upgrade to Pro. I followed the instructions at: and all of the folders being synced are owned by the same user. Is there anything I can do to refresh to the previously set settings or is there anything I have overlooked in the install to prevent this happening next time I restart? Resilio and it's predecessor are great and I use it all the time. I don't want to migrate away from it if settings don't persist after a restart! Harold
  5. I was surprised when I found out it's impossible to delete subfolders from iOS version of Sync... I'd surely use it frequently if it was available... Hope to see it soon
  6. Hi - when I delete files, I now see the file reappear with a "btsi" extension. How do I stop these appearing please?
  7. 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 empty folders from each devices. which is I believe BTsync wasn't designed working in this way. Searched the community, seems I am the only one met this problem? If anyone can help me with this? Thank you.
  8. Hi all, I've been using the program since the original version available to the public and it has been an amazing time saver! I work on photos on both my macbook and iMac often alternating, and it syncs whatever new images I take and the XMP file updates as I post process. Unfortunately for some reason I have had my files being sent to the archive when both computers are on, and it seems to be occurring for no reason as I have not changed any storage solutions recently or anything. At one point my drive with 500gb of files showed only 40gb left on the drive, yet when I hit get drive info it would still imply it has all 500gb. Thankfully it isn't deleting the files entirely, but I have had to purchase another backup drive as I'm afraid my current RAID backup will be useless if my files delete and are synced to delete, the archive was a savior in that case. Is this an issue that anyone else has experienced recently? It happened before I updated my Sync to 2.35 and has occurred twice since, I need this program to function for me and not have to spend time moving files back into their original folders from the archive. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Love Sync and hope to solve this soon
  9. I am just testing out BTSync 2.2.1 and have come across something very strange. On one computer I have 2.2.1 and running the PRO 30-day trial on another I am just running normal Sync 2.2.1 If I share a folder between the 2 computers using just a standard read&write folder everything works fine and is synched. When I want to remove the syncing I right-click in Sync Pro and it says disconnect at the bottom (whereas it says remove in the non-pro version). Once I hit disconnect, all the contents of the folder are deleted. When I hit remove in the non-pro version all the folder contents stay there as I would expect. If I share a folder from non-pro to pro as a read&write standard folder, then remove on non-pro and then disconnect on the pro side, the contents dont get deleted. Why would it delete all the files and folders? Why doesn't it do that in the non-pro version? This surely cant be a feature, but must be a bug. Any solution to this? Alternatively how can I downgrade back to non-pro without waiting for 30 days? Thanks, Armin.
  10. Here is my setup: Main Machine: This has 5 folders syncing 4 client machines: These have sync all off. I use the main machine as a media server. When I add to the shared folders from the clients they sync perfectly. When I delete from the clients it shows up as a .bts file on the clients but it does not remove it from the main. Is this a known issue or a limitation of the software? I'm using Version 2.1.1 (51)
  11. I have used BT Sync for a while now without issue. However, today, while out a friend contacted me to ask if I had deleted files from a shared folder we use to collaborate on his book ... I came back to find that my machine had deleted over 1TB of music (I'm a DJ) that I sync between two machines - a primary and a backup; all of the book files; a 'common' folder that I share between my machines and iPad and another I use to store images. Something went very seriously wrong today while I was out ... beware! I'm currently recovering files from a backup. Nightmare!
  12. Hi all, i installed BitTottent Sync 2 on my Mac and then removed it again. Worked fine but there are still some files left on my Mac. I know that because if i install Sync again, then i don't have to choose a name anymore. So there has to be a configuration file or something somewhere. The questions is, after deinstalling the app, how do i remove everything else the app created on my Mac? Regards, Endo
  13. i've setup btsync on 3 computers all running windows 7 64bit. After one computer crashed because of BSOD several synced folders had all their contents removed. I looked in the archive folder to find them there. is there a plan to detect if a harddrive has been disconnected or other synced computer to know of BSOD. this has happened 3 times. you could reproduce it by disconnecting a USB drive during sync
  14. Hi there. I'm looking into BTsync and how it could fit in our movie pipeline. We would use it for syncing material from on-set to our facility and to our SAN via a server with Xsan and fibre access to SAN. The issue here is that the DIT will have to delete files from his/hers local storage every now and then. I don't want to sync those deletions but i do want to sync everything he/she adds to shared folders. We would have the same setup when it comes to VFX. We would need some extra control over what they locally deletes that ripples through to our side. Cheers and thanks.
  15. Hello! I set up BTSync for a directory on one PC (which I will refer to as Ubuntu1) and shared the full access secret to a second PC (Ubuntu2). After fully syncing, Ubuntu2 has downloaded all of the original files. Next, when I delete a file on Ubuntu2 it simply downloads it from Ubunutu1 again during syncing! Surely what should happen instead is the file on Ubuntu1 should be moved to the .SynchArchive? Why do my files keep coming back? Thank you!
  16. Hi, I use one-way Sync as a way of quickly getting files from my computer onto my iPad - ebooks, pdfs etc. The problem is that some of the sync folders have hundreds of subfolders (authors etc) so when im finished reading them, it's very laborious to manually locate and delete each file that is stored locally on the iPad. The 'show synced' function doesn't really help much because I still have to nagivate into tonnes of folders to locate the ones that are stored locally. Is there a way to simply delete all locally stored files with one button? Without deleting the actual Sync partnerships obviously. I swear I remember this feature existing but today I can't for the life of me find it or remember how to do it. Am I going nuts? Thanks
  17. Hey All, I cannot seem to find a definitive answer on if 'ALL' old files that are stored in the ".sync\archive" folder are kept permanently? and if not is there an setting which when altered will accomplish this? - or are they kept for specific period of time in which case can they be kept permanently? and how? Thank You, in advance Scorpio721
  18. Hi there I am suffering the same Problem described in the forum here and here. What i noticed is that sync often completes after i re-create the index. Means: Stop-service, delete .sync/*, start service. I am using sync to backup my pictures, it's a folder of 105GB or about 25k Files. The Index-File uses about 100mb of space. There are posts in the topics above speaking about "Check if you have file-locks", but this isn't the problem. Sync does work with newly added files (it says 300MB first, and stucks at 20MB again, just the same as before the upload. Is there a reason - beside the time it take - against a scheduled recreation of the index file once a week (or so)? Or do you have any ideas to find away avoiding this? Chris
  19. Hi. I Am issues I am noticing is around file deletes. We have a group of about 6 machines running BTSync. each machine is owned and operated by a different person. A couple of us have our PC's on 24/7 and the rest only come online every few days to get up to date. This all works generally well and we sync up the files we need to. What we are seeing is that if we delete files off these machines this syncs around and they are deleted off most other machines but their are a couple of times where a machine that has been offline for a few days comes back on and it does not see the delete request for those files and then syncs them back up again with everyone. These files can be quite large so we have had to delete them a few times but they keep coming back. Any tips on stopping deleted files from syncing again? Both machines that i have noticed this on are MAC's and the rest are PC's but could be a coincidence. Thanks Crul
  20. Hi, I use BitTorrent Sync in read-only mode. It works almost perfectly (bug with some files, still no resolved) but I'm wondering if it's possible to let the synced files where they are when they are deleted on the other side? Explanation: - I have a Linux server 'A' and a NAS 'B'. - I create a sync on 'A' - I put the read-only secret on 'B' - Files are synced correctly and when I delete a file in 'A', I find this same file in the SyncTrash on 'B'. And I would like to know if it's possible to not move this file in 'B' when I delete it in 'A'. Thank you for your help and excuse me for my bad english.
  21. When I rename a folder or file to the same name (eg. to correct upper / lower case letters), then file or folder is deleted! I have only tested this on a Windows install with the latest public version. Can this be fixed soon! I did turn on debug mode and captured the sync log. I've attached it. The log file contains: -the creation of a new folder (c:\_data\qsmm\test1) -the creation of 2 files in the folder -the rename of the folder from "test1" to "TEST1" The folder and the contained files all get deleted!! Note that I am syncronizing 5 computers all running windows and the same version of bittorrent sync. Any questions or any other tests I need to do? Thanks. (Great product by the way! - the fastest and easiest sync tool I have found in a long time)
