  1. Is there any way in Windows OS to make BT Sync show pop-up notifications once any files get synchronized? I see a "show notifications" option in the preference, but I do not see any notification regardless of whether the option is checked or unchecked. I have BT Sync installed on three machines, one with Windows 7 and two with Windows 10, and I'm having the same issue on all of them.
  2. Right now, when I let Sync start itself on system startup, it shows the Sync window, which I have to close every single time. It would be nice to have an option which would let me have Sync start up minimized to the system tray. Many applications have this feature, but as far as I can tell, Sync lacks this. Thanks!
  3. From time to time we need to google our way to this article in order to fix the problem of the Finder integration not working. Searching for this problem on the forums shows that it is still a quite recurrent theme these days. I remember having issues with this in 2014. Three years later, this is still a thing, and the number one annoyance with Sync in our office. Should Resilio invest a little more effort into fixing this thing? I mean, Dropbox is essentially having the same desktop integration, and I have had a problem with that since using that in 2009. What about doing some cleanup/resetting related to this each time the machine is restarted to ensure this thing keeps on working (probably something you already do, but still ...)?
  4. I have a single seat PRO license and just got a new desktop computer. I have a folder on my old machine synced to a remote backup machine. I plan to use an external harddrive to move the complete folder from my old desktop to my new machine. Is there a best practices way to make this transfer without re-syncing all the files to the remote machine?
  5. As per the title I wish to sync user folders between pc's I have checked the ignorelist which filters desktop.ini, thumbs.db etc. If I want to prevent program shortcuts being synced, what do I need to add to the ignorelist to prevent these being synced across devices? Regards vi10
  6. In version 2.3 the "Change folder path" Option was removed as seen in the changelog here What is the logic behind this? I just reinstalled sync so that I could install it as a service (it would be nice to have a button to do this in the GUI but that's a different topic I selected my default folder path, which is the same as the one I used before, but sync re-creates the files appending a "(1)" to it. I don't want it to do that. I want it to use the current data there so it doesn't have to sync about a TB of data (granted it wouldn't take long with the speed of sync...but still) It seems to me that this is a limitation on the software. I would like to see it put back in. For now I am gonna go back to 2.2 though.
  7. On previous version 2.3 I had everything working perfectly while carefully using nested folders and customizing the ignore list. Now it's suddenly not allowed on 2.3.1 because ?????? So if some of us need this feature now we have to keep using an outdated version? Is there a workaround for this?
  8. On the html gui for the bt sync service: I need to differentiate with multiple shares having the same folder name. Either by: 1. An option to display the complete path name in the 'Folder' column. Currently it only displays the folder name. 2. Allowing the renaming of the share displayed while leaving the true path/folder name intact. 3. In general, have a share name in addition to the folder name. (Applies to Android as well.) Thank you much for this wonderful program! nat
  9. Hi all, I refer to 2.0 product version. This is the scenario: I have an android device and a pc desktop. The devices are linked. 1) For sync purpose I can choose a folder on pc and on android i see the creation of a folder that i can connect, but this folder has to be a new one, it is NO possible to choose a folder in android that already exist.. why? I would like sync and link a new folder in desktop and a folder in android that already exist. 2) Why is it no possible to start a new sync sharing from android device selecting a new folder, not one that was already configured with desktop client? My regards
  10. I have Sync running on a desktop at home 24/7. It would be nice to be able to change what gets synced to that machine without having to VNC in. I'd like to be able to change the New folders from other devices setting and individual folder controls remotely for all my linked devices.
  11. *** BREAKING NEWS *** The new full featured BitTorrent Sync GUI for Linux has been released! If you want to switch or are a new user, you should look at this posting. In future btsync-user may be replaced by the new btsync-gui. BTSYNC PACKAGES FOR DEBIAN, UBUNTU AND OTHER DERIVED DISTRIBUTIONS If you are using Ubuntu, Debian, Raspian or other derived distributions based on Debian and you are searching for an easy way to deploy BitTorrent Sync on your systems, this topic is definitively for you. Here you will find information about a family of easy to install deb-packages that offers both a solution for the need of typical server/cloud operators as for interactive users. The desktop user packages are explicitly intended for desktop usage and provide a user experience similar to BitTorrent Sync on Windows or Mac OSX by still giving the user the possibility to customise his installation if he has special needs. The server packages offer full debconf-support for the automated creation and maintenance of an optional default configuration as well as the possibility to manually configure single or multiple BitTorrent Sync instances with highly customised configurations. This topic covers only the desktop user packages. If you are searching for the server packages, please look here. THESE PACKAGES ARE UNOFFICIAL AND NOT THE WORK OF BITTORRENTĀ® INC. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE BITTORRENTĀ® INC. SUPPORT WITH QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE USE OF THE PACKAGES. YOU WILL FIND COMPETENT HELP AND SUPPORT IN THIS THREAD INSTALLATION ON DEBIAN, UBUNTU, LINUX MINT, RASPBIAN OR OTHER DEBIAN DERIVATES The most easy and fast way to install the repository is to paste that at a terminal prompt: sh -c "$(curl -fsSL"The script explains what it will do and then pauses before it does it asking for your permission. If you encounter any problems or prefer to do it manually, please look here.Now update the package index and install btsync by pasting that at a terminal prompt: `which sudo` apt-get update`which sudo` apt-get install btsync-userAfter the successful installation, you have to initially start BitTorrent Sync. You have different possibilities to do this:Log out and login again. Since BitTorrent Sync is started on logon, it will start automatically.Select BitTorrent Sync from the menu or Unity-LauncherStart it from the terminal prompt by issuing the command:btsync startUSAGE NOTES This package of BitTorrent Sync is explicitly intended for generic desktop usage and provide a user experience similar to BitTorrent Sync on Windows or Mac OSX: When the user logs in, an instance of BitTorrent Sync is automatically launched under the user's credentials and a tray applet is launched to show the status and manage the running instance. By default the user instance has an automatical created configuration file in ~/.config/btsync/btsync-auto.conf and keeps its internal data in the directory ~/.btsync A user specific desktop shortcut to the web UI is installed into the system. Since every user has it's web UI on a different port number, only the desktop shortcut or the indicator applet should be used to invoke the web UI. In order to give more freedom to the advanced user, there is also a possibility to launch BitTorrent Sync with a custom configuration file instead of the automatically created file: the startup routine of BitTorrent Sync checks, if there is a file named btsync-user.conf in the configuration directory ~/.config/btsync of the user. If this file is found, then it is used as configuration file. If not, BitTorrent Sync uses the automatically created default configuration file ~/.config/btsync/btsync-auto.conf that will be recreated on every restart. The most easy way to create a custom configuration file, is to create a copy of the automatically created configuration file and then to edit it according to your needs: cp ~/.config/btsync/btsync-auto.conf ~/.config/btsync/btsync-user.confnano -w ~/.config/btsync/btsync-user.confWhen you are ready with your modifications, you can restart BitTorrent Sync by executing: btsync restarton the command line.In addition to the desktop shortcuts and menu functions in the indicator applet, BitTorrent Sync can also be controlled from the command line using the tool btsync. The tool provides usage instructions by issuing the command: btsync -hMore comprehensive help can be found on the corresponding manpage: man btsyncCOMPATIBILITY The legacy desktop packages are available for the same architectures as released by BitTorrent Inc.: i386 Intel/AMD 32 Bitamd64 Intel/AMD 64 Bitarmel ARM EABIarmhf ARM hard floatpowerpc PowerPCSince the packages still have not been tested with KDE, LXDE, Cinnamon and Linux Mint, any related feedback is highly appreciated.BUG REPORTS, CONTRIBUTION AND SOURCES If you want to contribute to the development of the packages or if you are curious how this all works, you may find the current sources of the deployment scripts and packaging on GitHub under the following URL: The full source of the great indicator applet written by Mark Johnson, is also hosted on GitHub and can be found under the following URL: If you have experienced a reproducible issue that is related to the packaging and not to BitTorrent Sync itself you are strongly encouraged to open an issue on the project's GitHub Page. Issues related to the indicator should be reported on the indicator's GitHub page. Issues related to the native functionality of BitTorrent Sync should rather by creating a new topic or partecipating to an already existing topic in the BitTorrent Sync Forum.
  12. I'm running Linux Mint (desktop) and I don't know which version I have to download. Linux i386(glibc 2.3)1.2.82PowerPC1.2.82i3861.2.82 What is a PowerPC? I don't have problems running btsync on a terminal but I like a desktop version.
  13. I've written an Bittorrent Sync indicator for Linux Desktops (specifically Ubuntu, but may work on others too - let me know!). It basically displays the same information as the WebUI - which folders are syncing, and which peers they're syncing with. It has an animated icon to show when something is syncing, and there's a function to copy secrets to the clipboard. You can get it, find out how to use it, and report bugs at Enjoy!
  14. I have a huge folder with photos, 700gb. since RAWs take a lot of time to transfer over my obsolete 100mbit lan, I wanted to have local copies on 2 machines synced. I installed BTSync client on source machine and waited for index to complete. then I copied the whole folder directly to another HDD and inserted it into second (destination) machine. there, I changed ownership for all files to my local user, installed BTSync, gave it the secret and pointed it to the folder. files started syncing, but then I suddenly noticed that destination client reports "removed" files, arbitrary 1 or 2 files per subfolder. here are some screen captures. source machine is called "blackbox", destination one is "thorium" that's how it looked from dest. machine: I have no clue how and why removed files were special. they DID NOT APPEAR in .SyncArchive on dest. machine here's how it looked from source machine. (in the middle it says added because I noticed the report on destination machine, then found "removed" file in folder, with !sync. extension, and renamed it back; then disconnected lan on destination machine and started adding files back on source machine) removed files were reported and moved correctly to .SyncArchive on source machine. I have two questions: 1) is that normal? 2) wth? no, wait, I'm sure that's not normal. for sudden arbitrary data deletions I'd dust off my ActiveSync. I really hoped btsync would fare better than that T_T
