Hi, Having been using the program for several years now, in the last 6 months or so I keep seeing this error which I think also affects the sync process from working as well. The thing is, the "time difference", from what I can see there is only mention of if it's outside of a 10-minute limit or something that it should come up. However, the time difference in question here is CORRECTLY several hours, as the syncing is between computers in different parts of the world. As this was never a problem before I am now not sure whether you have an 'added' limitation maybe, or if this is completely user-side and perhaps the fault of the system reporting the error rather than with the sync software at all? Any help with this would be much appreciated as it currently makes the software less reliable than I believe it should be.
If VM disks could be synced by diff (not the whole file), this would be a new and very powerful capability, which is hard to find elsewhere or create securely between networks. I've heard a few saying this on here. I've heard staff say this wasn't important. I'm sorry to be blunt, however, it's not about what features are important to Sync staff, it's about what's important to users. I'm a user. It's important. As a software architect I gotta say, both for dev machines that stay synced across my multiple work environments, and for service machines which could far more quickly update not just source but the entire host OS and its install software, it would be hugely useful and very valuable. Please don't dismiss this again and point people to the FAQ. You may think there's not many software architects out there, but we make the services that millions of users use every day. You make our lives easier, you make all those users happier. I'm not saying I'm a big deal (I'm not I promise), but this could be a big deal in terms of 'disruptive' progress in big datacenter and inter-datacenter management if it had delta capability. Otherwise, thanks for a wonderful FOSS tool that is feeling more and more solid and useable every time I update. Great work guys!
Hi there, I have two windows machines syncing one folder. Once says 1240 files (3.7 Gb), the another 1239. Obviously the second one wants to download the file that is absent. But it can't, it just shows a permanent status of uploading. How can I know which one is failing? No .Sync* files out there. Already tried restarting syncs and computers (several times). Also trying to figure out which file could be by searching files of 54.5 Kb and modified within 2 weeks, but if I change the name of the files these are well synced with no change in file counting. How can I solve the mystery?? EDIT: Just before posting it has been solved. But why? No idea. I have just keeping changing the name of the suspicious file and then, suddenly the 1239 has changed to 1240 (with no extra file in the folder). As the problem has disappeared randomly I find it difficult to reproduce. But anyway perhaps it is useful to report this here (?). BW, Gerard
