Hello - I am trying to add my <username>\Documents folder to BTSync (not sharing yet). It will not index completely, it gets stuck on a Junction in the \Documents directory and fails. I've worked with support and confirmed this is a problem, they have indicated it will be fixed in a future release. (thanks for the help!). The temporary solution suggested is to add the junction to the .SyncIgnore file in \Documents. But, I cannot get BTSync to ignore the junction. This is the error I receive: [2014-06-30 14:46:51] SyncFolderScanner: GetFileList failed for folder \\?\C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Videos - error code 5 These are my junctions in the Documents folder: dir /AL output: 02/03/2012 08:57 PM <JUNCTION> My Music [C:\Users\<username>\Music] 02/03/2012 08:57 PM <JUNCTION> My Pictures [C:\Users\<username>\Pictures] 02/03/2012 08:57 PM <JUNCTION> My Videos [C:\Users\<username>\Videos] I've shut down BTSync. and modified .SyncIgnore with of: My Videos My?Videos My?Videos\* Yet I still get the error above as it tries to index the junction. Any advice on what I'm doing wrong in my .SyncIgnore? Thanks in advance for the help
I have been very impressed with the BTSync software. I have been working with it over a month now; But lately I have had a couple of glitches on my Windows 7 Computers. I am using this as a backup platform for our remote employees to a Server here in the office. There was only one issue and that was I really didn't want to give 10 secrets per computer (for each folder). I found someone on one of these forums where there talked about a smarter way of backing up. Essentially he made a Folder and then a bunch of junctions under it. It WORKED! I have been using it under Windows XP and Windows 7, I had a glitch the other day and lost off of my secrets (oops) and at that time I figured why not upgrade to the latest version (1.1.12) this seemed to work very well for all of the XP computers. But lately I have been trying to install the 1.1.12 and 1.1.15 on the Windows 7 computers and when the BTSync software checks my folder it says its 45k ... not Meg not Gig (not always but it is always far less that the real byte count. One time I fixed this by finding a bad junction link I deleted it and it started updating to the correct byte / files could and worked. But as I continue to the next few computers (W7) I have not had such success and to get it working I had to go back and use a single secret for a single folder does anyone know why this is? And Any solutions? I have found this to happen on Windows 7 (32 Bit) as well As Windows 7 (64 Bit) And yes I am really anxious when I can deploy this using somesort of command line switches. To give credit where create is due I was talking about the Post at: http://forum.bittorr...-the-smart-way/ It really simplified what I was trying to do.. Thanks yottabit
