Hey Everyone, So my basic question is - How do you stop the .sync folder changing to be hidden. I have 3 Sync Folders, In 2 of them the .sync folder is never hidden. But in one folder the .sync is hidden, I go into Properties and change it to not be hidden but some time later it reverts back. Any Ideas?? Spec: Windows 7 PC's (2x) with BT Sync 2.0.105
Summary: I want to create folders for syncing that are are hidden in Linux (.example) and hidden in Windows (.example with the -h attrib) What is Bit Torrent doing to that initial .sync directory to make it hidden to all windows clients? Details: Linux Ubuntu 14.04 to/from Windows 7 and windows 8.1 The default .sync folder created when you set up BitTorrent Sync on a linux system propegates to all the sync'd systems. It must be possible to create a hidden directory and then pass along the hidden attribute from linux to MS and back. I am creating the Bittorrent share on a Ubuntu 14.04 server and them sharing them with windows users. This allows me to create a backup repository for all their user files that they want to sync back onto the linux server . I would also like to create a hidden folder on their machine so that I can add a dynamic link to some of their windows files, like their monster outlook email files, but I don't want that directory to be visible to them. The last thing I need them to do is delete their own dynamically linked directories. I can manually hide the directory on each windows machine, but that creates two problems. If they add another computer to their sync, like their home pc, they can see the hidden directory on that PC now, since the -h attribute is not passed along, Second it sure would be nice to do all the user set ups and directorys from the server rathter than having to hide directories on every machine manually. I have tried the getfattr and setfattr commands with no success. Maybe it's a syntax issue. How can I create another hidden directory, like the .sync directory, on the linux server that will stay hidden to windows sync users?
HI all! I have searched and cannot find a solution, so ... let us see! First of all, LOVE the product. Absolutely. What I am going to try and use this for is syncing user profile directories on 5 computers with one main serer. I would love if I could exclude hidden folders - any way this is possible? Is there a place for predefined ignore files? I did notice that once I deleted the sync directories, and then removed the files.... it still brought down an ISO that didn't exist somehow? Thoughts?
