Hello! I have a problem and need your help. - I installed Resilio Sync on Raspberry Pi 3, set it to boot on start - added two external HDDs with exFAT and NTFS file systems - added tools to work with file systems and change config to mount external drives on boot. And all were good for day or so. Now I have no sync and have regular messages "file is locked by another application" for every file sync tries to read/write. - I removed folder from sync, deleted .sync folder, reboot, add folder again and it works for hour or two. Then it appear again, files locked, on both HDDs - meanwhile I can open HDDs folders on Raspberry anytime, can read and write the files - I have no other software in the system except Sync - rslsync is in root group and drives permissions are 0777 - I tried to disable power management for HDDs with "hdparm -B255" - without luck. Any ideas how I can solve this problem?
Here's my setup: Main computer: Windows 10, only one internal HDD Second computer: Linux Mint, one internal HDD for the system, one external usb hdd for all my documents/files/folders I'm syncing some folders from the main computer to the external hdd on the second computer. It's a read and write situation on both. It worked flawlessly for over a year. But since the last Resilio update it stopped. I can't access the external HDD on the second computer via Resilio anymore. So I can't add folder, I can't sync anything. When I try to add the folder, I navigate to the the external hdd, but it never appears, no matter how long I wait. (see picture) Otherwise, this external hdd works well and is accessible via the file explorer of the system. Nothing has changed, apart from the resilio update... Tried and tried to resolve this, but no luck, and I didnt find anything on this forum or on the web to help me. Any ideas???
I've set up a linux server with bittorrent sync. The folders are on an external HDD drive. After almost 24h it finally finished indexing - yes the server is slow - but the HDD still doesn't spin down. This is a little troubling, I'm sure the external HDD is not supposed to run non-stop. Apparently this is connected to the indexing intervals. Sync will check the folder for changes every 10 minutes and that keeps the HDD from spinning down. I need to adjust this indexing interval. This seemed perfect: http://help.getsync.com/customer/portal/articles/1570790-can-i-change-how-often-sync-checks-for-file-changes- Unfortunately in my advanced settings there is no option to change the interval (linux web ui). I've read that the interval can also be set by a config file which is given to the executable via the --config flag. Great, but I still need to get that config file. I dumped a sample config file, which would need to be adapted, but before I do that, I have two questions : 1. Is it possible to get the "current" config file ? Which contains the configuration, that btsync uses right now, eg correct folders, correct ports, correct user-name ? I'm afraid that passing a config file will mess up the folders that are already indexed. It would be a shame if another 24h were lost on that. 2. If the "current" config file is not available, if I have to adjust the sample config, what do I need to change ? Which settings are important and which are dangerous ? I tried to find a tutorial which tells me where to be careful, but so far, I haven't found it.
