  1. Hey Guys - I use BTSync (Pro) to synchronize many folders between multiple devies - one of which is my Nvidia Shield Tablet which runs Lollipop 5.1.1. When first moving to 5.1.1 a few months ago, I rooted it and added a 64gb SD card. I then edited "/etc/permissions/platform.xml" to add the  "WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" string therefore providing all apps with full write to the SD card. I installed BTsync, set up my options, and linked 4-5 folders to various folders on the SD card without issue. Besides BTSync, I use FolderMount to create symlinks on my internal SD so that I may
  2. Hi everyone, I'm using a raspberry pi to run Resilio Sync for my external hard drive to backup all my files. I've installed Raspian on it and followed the linux installation guide found here. Everything seems to work, I am able to access the user interface via localhost:8888/gui, however I'm getting this error: when I try to use the external hard drive. Does anyone know what may cause this problem and how to fix it? Many thanks
  3. I have an external drive that I have synced 4 TB to from an old PC and now I want to move that drive to a new PC and set up Sync on there. Is there a way to set this up so I do not have to overwrite all 4 TB on the external drive? I’d like sync to pick up where the old machine left off without wiping all the existing synced data.
  4. Hello, If I set up the sync to en external HDD on one of the computers, and then disconnect it at some point, will the app detect it as though I "deleted" the files and erase them on the other end, or will it see that the device is missing and act as though it is "not connected"? Thanks in advance for the answers!
  5. Hi, I just was curious about the function of folders when they are copied. When I copy a folder from one hard drive (#1) that has a folder already being synced to another computer's (#2), when viewed on the new hard drive which I copied it onto (#3) it has the Sync label in the Mac finder view. Does this mean that the new copied folder onto the 3rd external drive will also be synced? It is under a different name and is not listed under the folders when opened in Sync, it is just the view in the finder that leads me to believe that. The drive #3 is a backup of sorts, if that makes a
  6. I've seen several threads here, but wanted to add mine. I've been using Sync on 5.1 and previous on several rooted devices with the ExtSD write fix patch to sync my music and pictures. It's been great. But lets just focus on the music since it’s been a static set of files for quite some time. 826 files, 3.7gb. I've recently upgraded my LG G4 to Marshmallow and after the fact I find there is apparently no ExtSD write fix for 6.0. I don't expect that to stay the case, my LGOG e970 with NitrogenOS MM 6.0 Rom can write to ExtSD as always. Pretty sure I was running Sync
  7. Hello guys, I'm trying to sync a folder from pc to my phone (sd card) , but when I choose a folder it pops up that I don't have permission to write on the sdcard (I just can sync in the standard folder .../data/com.bittorrent.sync/files, however I can't see the images in my gallery when I sync with the standard folder) Do you guys know how to write in a different folder and how to see the pictures in the standard folder in my gallery? Thanks
  8. When I have an Android TV (yes, I know not supported but still fully running) I found out that I can backup a folder on an external usbdisk connected to my Android TV, but I cannot add a normal folder from that same external usbdisk. Why is that different? It sounds to me that the file permissions are not the problem, right? I want to have the option to create a folder (from a read/write-key) in that external usbdisk (/storage/usbdisk/media for example). Why? Simple, because I can have my NAS or pc as a source and sync it always with my Android TV without any interaction by me. Due to limi
  9. Hi! Could you please tell me, if I have synced folder on an external drive and I swap that drive with another with same volume name but not same amount of files in synced folder (for example fewer), will Btsync decide that those files were deleted and will remove them from other devices, or it will sync missing files back from other devices? I mean, for example I have external drive named "Brick" and have synced folder on it. Btsync path is /Volumes/Brick/sFolder sFolder contains 10 files and synced with another computer. I swap "Brick" with another drive, also named "Brick", so path /Volu
  10. I am trying to sync LARGE folder from a Windows Machine to any other device (at the moment a Raspberry Pi with a USB Drive, but if I get this working it will be any other device). Large is just shy of 3TB. My thinking was that while I have access to USB I could pre-sync the folder by simply copying files over and then running BTSync to mirror any additional changes. Sync of course wanted to overwrite every file on the Pi. I am assuming due to changes in the file attributes triggering sync to replace them. Trying to use Sync across the lan will take roughly a Month and is outside the bound
  11. I have just upgraded to Sync 2.0 on my Android phone (version 5.0.1) and wanted to sync my data with my new removable SD card, but it seems that the application does not create the folder /Android/data/com.bittorrent.sync automatically on the latter. As a result I can't synchronize data on my SD card which quite annoying. Anyway to create that folder manually ? Any workaround I could use ? Thank you. Best regards,
  12. This is a dumb question, but I'm obviously new to this and want to make sure I know what I'm doing. I've added a folder from my external hard drive (372 GB) and my employer needs to access these files. If I remove the external hard drive will it delete my folder on Bittorent Sync? And also, does the external hard drive have to be connected for my employer to access the files?
  13. I'm totally new to BTSync and didn't find any info on this case in the forums. Feel free to tell me to go search again if I just missed it or point me to a starting point. I'd like to setup an USB external HDD (HFS+, occasionally connected to a MacBook) to sync it's entire contents or folders with a share on my NAS (EXT4, Synology DS213 DSM 5.0). I'd like that sync to happen whether I'm on my LAN where the NAS is or if I'm remote (Internet). Is that doable with BTSync? Any major road blocks? I see a ton of possible road blocks, I just don't know if BTSync work around those, namely: a so
