  1. Sync would be MUCH more productive if we could do simple things like rename or move a file in the IOS app. As things stand I have to save to Dropbox, rename the file, then "save to Sync", which is a bit of a pain. Same with moving files.. I have to move the file to Dropbox, delete it in Sync, then "save to Sync" at the new location.
  2. Hi, I know " btsync --dump - shows -config " this create a configuration file template . it is possible to obtain the current settings to a file? I need export the actual config in a file. Thanks!!
  3. I am missing one thing especially over slow internet connections: Optional Basic file compression (e.g. gzip) before sending out any data Why do we need that? Well, create sample file under Windows OS, open CMD as admin and type: cd "C:\your\BTSync\directory"fsutil file createnew 10mb 10000000This commands creates an empty file with a length of 10000000 bytes equal to 10MB but the content are just zeros. If zipping this file with just basic compression it goes down to just about 12 KB in total size. BUT When BTSync transfers it the full 10 MB are send out. If compression is implemented it will speed up on slow internet connections when transferring files dramatically, especially if they have a high compression ratio. This should not be too difficult to implement and saves bandwidth which comes also very handy when we are thinking about mobile devices with limited data plans. I think this feature should be allowed to be enabled or disable in the options depending on the requirements of users, because it might lead to slightly higher CPU load. An option with the ability to choose a compression level would be even better.
  4. I'm using Sync with about 10 people and it's transferring/managing about 150 GB between multiple machines. As of about two weeks ago, it's been generating Conflict copies left and right. Yesterday I cleaned out 127,000 Conflict copies (various and random throughout the folders and files) and today cleaned out another 38,000 generated. Looking to get a more permanent fix for this as it's filling up my coworker's hard drives and creating a lot of confusion/chaos. - Joshua
  5. I'm quite impressed with the app but I have one large issue that needs to be resolved. When files are synced, the source file creation and modification dates are not being synced correctly. The source file's creation date becomes the destination file's modification date and the destination file's creation date/time becomes the date/time of the transfer. This is not correct behavior and it is very misleading and confusing when trying to compare file versions, especially on things like photo files. I shouldn't have to dig into the metadata under the file's properties/info tab to see when a picture was taken. I have used and loved a program called AllwaySync for years because it always transfers all file attributes correctly when Windows Explorer and many other programs do not. Please fix! Thanks
  6. Hey Guys - I have a remote Linux box (Debian Squeeze) which for a couple of years have been manually transferring data from it to my local PC (Win 8.1) using FTP. Once local, I'd then have to sort it manually. I started using BTSync recently instead and wish I had thought to use it earlier. It's a better solution by far - especially as I can sync music folders with my phone! I've got an issue that I've run into that I need help with. Between my remote Linux and local Windows systems, I sync a single folder which has 10 static category folders inside of it. Based on labels and rules I've set up on the Linux end, files and folders of all types are placed into one of these 10 folders for synchronization to my local PC. What I'm Trying to Do Once a file / folder is synced locally to my Windows box, it will be inside one of the 10 category folders. Based on the category folder it's in, I want it moved to a different local folder where it will be amongst similar file / folder types. The methods I've tried so far either continuously watch each category sync folder or do so at an interval. Once they see a folder / file, it's moved to the target folder. Synced Folder Structure: - "/home/user/Sync" - Single folder synced with BTSync on remote side - /home/user/Sync/Documents - /home/user/Sync/Complete - /home/user/Sync/FLAC - … (7 more folders) These 10 folders stay in root of synced folder 100% of the time are are never deleted or moved Folders / Files synced into each of the 10 folders range from a few kilobytes to multiple gigabytes. The addition may also be a single file to a folder containing numerous files and sub-folders My Issue I've found that despite rules I set, files / folders are being moved before they finish syncing from the remote linux box. The best luck I've had is setting rules not not move *.bts files since that's the extension until they are complete, but that doesn't work for folders. For example, if syncing a folder which has 10 .flac files in it locally, the folder would be created first and the first file start to sync with the .bts format. Once the first file finishes and changes to .flac, the rules move the folder to the destination thereby deleting the folder from the sync folder which finally deletes it from the source along with all other files. As I download individual files as wel as folders, I need to find a rule / method where whatever has been added to be synced will not move until it's 100% downloaded. Example of My Issue Lets say I add a folder named "Folder1" which contains a few files and sub-folders into "/home/user/Sync/Complete" on the remote side BtSync then starts to sync it locally into "D:\AppCache\Sync\Complete\Folder1" As "D:\AppCache\Sync\Complete" is monitored to move new contents, the app performing the task sees "Folder1" appear moves it immediately or (depending on how rules are set) does once a new file appears inside of it matching a filter The app moves "Folder1" immediately (or including it's single synced file depending on rules) to "D:\Complete" - The sync hasn't finished, but the monitoring app doesn't know that When the folder is moved, it's actually copying the folder to the new location and deleting it from the old one. Therefore, BTSync thinks I've deleted the folder locally so in turn deletes the remote copy. This results in the folder D:\Complete\Folder1" being empty plus the original being deleted on both local and remote sidesWhat I've Tried So far, I've tried a few Windows apps. but no scripts yet. At first, I tried Belvedere but found it's options seem to be too simplistic. Next, I tried DropIt, but has similar results. My most recent attempt was using Hygeia. Even though it seemed to offer the most choices for rule criteria; it still wasn't enough. I looked at one of my favorite sites - alternativeto.net - for additional software, but didn't see anything which may work better. I considered setting up individual sync folders per category and syncing them locally with the target folders which the rules are to move the data to post sync, but the local folders contains tons of data which I don't want to sync. Doing so would be impossible given my resources. If I do this and set the local sync to Read Only, will that accomplish the task? I'm using BTSync 2.x on both ends and plan to upgrade to Pro soon (still barely in 30 day trial) but definitely will if I can figure this out. Does anyone have suggestions for how to accomplish this? Thanks!
  7. Hi there, It keeps happening that documents I make with LibreOffice, get overwritten with 0kb versions of them, since I started using BitTorrent Sync. The original document is then moved to the Archive under the .Sync folder. I tried different formats, like .docx, and .odt, it doesn't seem to matter. It randomly happens. Might there be some kind of combination of (Libre)Office (temp locked files) and the BitTorrent software that seems to be clashing? Under the Archive folder I also find locked 1kb files, like: .~lock.documentname.1.odt# .~lock.documentname.2.odt# .~lock.documentname.3.odt# Hope to hear from you and thanks in advance.
  8. Hi I love BT Sync. Best thing since soap on a roap. But with Firefox, whenever I download a executable file it is invalid when finished. It usually works if pause BT Sync while downloading. But this last time I downloaded Firefox installation to bring to work (offline installations only) and I did it about ten times. I closed the BT Sync (paused but still interfering?) applikation and finally I got my files. Check for file locks or wait for untouched files? Needs attention. Still love pretty much love it. For mostly static content. Regards
  9. I have had some issues with my PC, so I had to reinstall my OS. I had a syncronized folder and now I want to sync that again without overwriting all the files I already have. When I attempt to connect the folder a message appears: "The folder is not empty: sync anyway?". Does BTSync detect the files it has already downloaded and just starts syncing new stuff or does it sync all over again? I just need to know this.
  10. having set up two-way sync between folders on two different servers, would there be any reason why the file count is different at each end? in other cases on the same servers, the sync details show the same file count at each end. two folders - apparently no different - show counts which do not match. am i missing something? also: what is the reason why the file count shown by btsync differs dramatically from the file count shown by windows?? windows: 11005 files, 40 folders 415Mb - btsync: 20118 files, 615Mb. - is this an error or are there heaps of hidden files somewhere? any information welcome, thank you.
  11. I have 2 Server 2003 machines with BT Sync 1.3.87 for Windows. The administrator is the owner of the BT Sync task in both machines. Site A has many unchanged files (pictures, movies, zip files, etc...) and some files actively changed. It is a huge folder tree of 350GB that is now half uploaded to Site B using BT Sync. Site B is a backup machine and no other task is accessing the synced folders except BT Sync. The extrange behavior happens in Site B. Every 26 seconds the backup folder is indexing the very same 160 files (aprox.) and the message "Updated file XXXXXXXX" is shown in the history tab for each of those 160. Those files are, all of them, already sinced and they haven't ever been modified. All of them are JPG pictures of a collection of thousands. The sync of unsynced files seems to be running fine since there are active transfer of files (none of those 160) in the Transfers tab. Closing and running again BTSync doesn't fix the issue, even more, it seems that doing this causes the issue. Only removing the folder from My Sync tab and adding it again to reindex the whole collection again solves the issue. The described issue appears in the next reboot of the computer or the BT Sync application. Any idea on how to avoid it? Thanks
  12. I recently abandoned SASS file synchronization in preference of DIY solutions, namely ownCloud and BitTorrent Sync, the latter of which I prefer for its design. I got excited about this and so I set it up on a few of my devices and everything was going just fine with new directories I made for trying things out. I felt ambitious and decided to sync a bunch of my existing files (for which I'd previously used GoodSync across devices). I was synchronizing my pictures folder when I noticed that after the first sync, BT Sync wouldn't continue to update files. I tried fiddling with the folder and advanced settings and I wasn't getting anywhere so I turned on debug logging...to no avail. Nothing stood out and nothing looked like the source of the problem. Then I remembered something: I'd moved a bunch of my pictures from my Mac system onto my (almost exclusively) Windows systems. Windows has restrictions on what characters are allowed in file names and Mac OS has none to my knowledge. Long story short, I ended up renaming two offending files: >@3.jpg
  13. Hello, I hope some of the developers come around here once in a while. I am doing this transfer and it suddenly stalled, I am running btsync in Fedora 20, if I go to the Web GUI things look normal, only that nothing is transferring even though the folder I am trying to sync shows that is not being synced. If I run: $sudo systemctl status btsync@user.service Where user is my username, I see that the above shows up, it shows up along with other problems but the other problems are normal and haven't prevented syncs in the past, it seems pretty clear that the problem is the line shown in the topic. Anybody has any idea of what causes that error? Wilbert
  14. Hi, I looked over the Unofficial BitTorrent Sync FAQs list and found a section that somewhat matches my situation: Reading that gives me the impression that the actual number of files would be listed correctly within the app, but just not transferred for one of the reasons listed. In my case, the number of files is vastly different: Around 3000 listed in the app and around 33,000 actual files Permissions are good as I'm running the app as a local administrator account and I have explicitly reset the Administrators group as having full access and "pushed" permissions down. The source system is a Windows XP Professional (SP3) system and I have rebooted the system to make sure that any locked files for the affected profile (not the local administrator whose account is active) are freed. I've also opened the .SyncIgnore file on the source and a destination system and commented out all default entries (and closed/reopened the app). I even went and found a Windows touch tool that allowed me to reset the last modified time recursively on all files and that only resulted in around 100 more files listed than was previously shown in the Size column (X GB in Y files). During all of this I rebooted the system several times and closed/reopened the client (not just the app window, but the application itself) after each change to test the results. Any tips? I haven't collected the logs and mailed them in yet. I was hoping that maybe this was a known issue with a workaround. If not, I'll gladly collect the logs and mail them in. Thanks.
  15. Hi, I am syncing my home folder on 2 of my macs, all of the files have successfully synced except my Pictures folder which is taking ages to index and sync, I am also getting a wrong file size on both of my machines. My first machines shows me 117GB and the second shows me 77.1GB and my original Pictures file size is 175GB. I tried to delete the files and resync them again, but no luck, Anyone have experience such a thing? Any recommended solution? Thank you.
  16. I use two linux servers in two different networks (192.168.ABC.X and 192.168.DEF.X) who are connected to each other via VPN. On both servers are the same folders /srv/sharedfolder. The data of this folders are synced with btsync. Both servers offers an access to the stored files for Windows clients without passwords etc. with Samba. The samba configuration is: [sharedfolder] path = /srv/sharedfolder public = yes writeable = yes printable = no guest ok = yes create mask = 777 directory mask = 777 After syncing the data with btsync from one server to the other a windows client in the other network can open the synced file but not overwrite it. To do that I have to set the ownership of the files on the server in the other network from 770 to 777 manually after syncing. Is there a way to configure btsync or samba to keep the rights of the files?
  17. On the remote PC deleted all the files. BitTorrent Sync udallenye kept all the files in the "data-b.bin.!sync". How to open this file?
