Hello all, The situation i'm not certain about is a Linux pc with a remote share (SMB or NFS) mounted at, e.g., "/mnt/syncfolder/". This folder is synced by a locally running instance of Sync. If mounting the remote share fails in the first place or the share becomes unavailable at some point, the folder "/mnt/syncfolder/" still exists, but the contents will be different since it is no longer backed by the remote share but by a local disk. Typically the folder would then be empty. How will Sync behave in such a case? Will it somehow detect that the folder is not actually a Sync folder and not use it anymore, and will it resume activity when the share is available again? Will it see the empty folder and tell all other peers to delete everything in it? Will it see that other peers have a valid data structure and sync their data into "/mnt/syncfolder/" while it points to some local drive instead of the remote share? Thank you, Henner
Hello there! I recently bought resilio sync home pro and have installed in on my PC and NAS. The NAS is an Netgear ReadyNAS 104. I have linked the devices, and both of them have "Disconnected" as default mode (i.e i manually choose wich folders to sync to each unit). I've added my Google Drive folder on my PC to resilio and it's backing up to my NAS. All the existing files in my google drive got indexed and copied to my NAS (currently doing it again because i did some changes...) I've also added a folder on my PC with a lot of GoPro raw-footage and it works just fine in the same manner. On my NAS however, i clicked the plus-sign to add a new folder and added a folder containing a lot of video files ( about 1TB?). In the GUI, (after a short index?) it shows the green checkmark, I was suprised it didn't index for longer. When i go back to my PC and "connect" the folder (i also chose selective sync here, i want to sync a selection of the foldes to each of my PCs), choose a location for it and wait i while, it still shows up empty. From what i've understood i'm supposed to see placeholder files when i choose selective sync. I've also tried disabling selective sync, but still no files appear. I've tried adding the same video-folder as both a standard folder and now as a advanced folder, but i get the same problem. It appears the NAS doesn't index the folder and therefore no files show up on my PCs. Edit 1: I just tried adding a new folder in my NAS that only had a single .txt file in it and i get the exact same problem. As soon as i added it a ".sync"-folder appeared inside it, as it's supposed too. But no indexing or syncing of the .txt file. Edit 2: I tried adding a new file to that folder, and it was synced almost instantly! Howcome my google drive folder on my PC gets all it's "old"(was in the folder before adding it to sync) files indexed and synced, but the foldes on my NAS only gets the "new"(put in the folder after it's added to sync) files indexed and synced?
