  1. Hi, I'm syncing from a Mac Pro to two NAS units, a QNAP and a Synology, and both NASes keep showing folders that are stuck at 100% but never get to the green checkmark. Closer inspection reveals that each of the stuck folders is stuck downloading files. The Mac is running 2.6.4 (1344), the Synology is running 2.6.4 (1344) and the QNAP is running 2.6.0 (1317). I tried shutting down the QNAP and setting up the problematic folder over from scratch between just the Mac and the Synology to keep versions equal, and the problem persisted. Any idea what could
  2. This has been like this for awhile now. I noticed that when dark mode is enabled on macOS, the menu bar icon is white and looks very out of place. I was wondering if there was a timeline for fixing this.
  3. Guys, when will you fix your icon for Mac? It really an eyesore.
  4. I've got what's admittedly a pretty large share, ~38GB, syncing between several Macs and a NAS. 2.3 has been great on the NAS and it works fine on the Macs except the thing is indexing several times an hour and chewing huge amounts of CPU and battery when it does. CPU will peg a core at 100% for 15 minutes at a time and the Energy Impact on my laptops puts BitTorrent Sync as consuming about twice as much power as everything else running on those machines combined. This was a complete non-issue with previous v2.x versions. Is there an
  5. Hi, Some files are not synchronized between Mac and Windows. They all contain a dot at the end of the folder name. For example : /folder/folder./folder/file.txt Some files are unreadable. They contain a space at the end of their their folder name or a dot at the end of their file name. For example : /folder/folder/file. Or : /folder/folder /file.txt Thank you
  6. Hello All, I am having very slow speeds over the internet between two laptops (Macbooks using OS X). Previously, Resilio Sync was pretty fast (for me) 3 MB/s speeds but now the speeds are hovering around 320 KB/s - 400 KB/s and I cant seem to figure out how to get back to the same speeds as before. Both networks have a 115 Mbps download and a 10-13 Mbps upload on both WiFi and wired, and I have tried to troubleshoot everything I could before coming here: - Putting both laptops in DMZ - Port forwarding the port in Resilio Sync's settings on both routers. - Disabling "
  7. Hi All Need some help with logic read/write multi pc setup I have a Windows 10 server (my backup destination ) I have 2 Windows laptops used for work 1 Mac I use as a backup I need all these to synch the documents folder and downloads folder to each machine and a copy held on the server as a master backup , how would I configure this and what would be read/write - is it as simple as read/write shares, get a link and go to next machine, read write etc - sorry sounding like a total noob I'm slightly worried of overwriting /deleting my data especially 500GB of work
  8. Hi, I've installed Resilio Sync with the intention of syncing my Mac's Desktop & Documents folder between two Macs. I don't want separate sub-folders within a 'Resilio Sync' folder, I want a regular file hierarchy of [myusername]/Documents and [myusername]/Dekstop both kept up to date across the two Macs using Resilio Sync. I've setup a share of [myusername]/Documents on Mac 1 and emailed it to myself. Received it on Mac 2 and gone to setup a sync. But Resilio Sync is telling me I can't point the received sync at [myusername]/Documents on the second Mac as I 'Already have a
  9. So I'm working in a small company that has a few employees, we have lots of images, photoshop documents, and illustrator files. All of which need some sort of tags to make things easily searchable, and make it easy to collaborate. We use Mac's and PC's. I haven't seen any Digital Asset Managers I like, and I don't want to place my bets on a software company that goes broke, so I'd rather just use Sync and built in OS file explorers. I plan on using the Mac's and Finder as the main way to access, organize and tag files. I know windows cannot see macOS tags, but does windows pass along t
  10. The German computer magazine "Mac & i" just published a story about the problems many cloud services encounter while syncing Mac files (05-2017). The review includes Resilio Sync 2.4.5 - take a look.
  11. Good morning, I am trying to install Resilio Sync Home on Mac OS X 10.10.5 and it does not allow me to install it since it indicates that it is damaged and can not be opened I downloaded it with different browser and from another computer passing it to this but the problem persists Attached screenshot to see that error. A greeting.
  12. Dear Sync community, I've posted the issue previously in but im afraid, the following problem still persists: Resilio Sync 2.4.4 (732) is shown as occupying 100% CPU in 'Activity Monitor'. A folder containing ~114.000 of admittedly small files (45 GB) is constantly shown as indexing, even when setting folder_rescan_interval to e.g. 3600. I noticed the constant indexing issue also on a Synology NAS, however setting folder_rescan_interval to 3600 seems to have helped to alleviate the issue a bit here. On the Mac, running the comm
  13. As the title says, I'd really like to see support on OS X for using a Smart Folder as a read-only shared folder in BT Sync, as it would give a huge amount of control over the content that is shared. For those that haven't used them before, Smart Folders are basically just a search in the Finder that is saved as a persistent folder that can be revisited to see results matching that search. For example, I could create a Smart Folder showing all movie files of a certain type, tagged in a certain way, or added since a particular date etc. Working with Smart Folders is fairly simple, as they'
  14. With selective sync enabled, if I double click a placeholder file in Finder it will begin downloading it from a peer. If I double click the placeholder file again before it has completed downloading (let's say I'm impatient...), the file disappears altogether from Finder. Once the download completes, the original file is correctly shown again. This is problematic because (AFAICT) I lose the ability to cancel the sync of the file.
  15. The Mac app has some unexpected window behavior. If I use ⌘W to close the app window, the dock icon closes but the sync icon in the menu bar stays open. If I use ⌘Q to close the app, both the dock icon and the menu bar close. Is this the expected behavior? It seems out of line with other app behaviors on the Mac so I'm surprised every time when my sync engine is suddenly not running!
  16. Lately I've been noticing that a lot of my Time Machine backups are always around a 1gb or more, even when I haven't done anything that seemed to warrant it; turned out the culprit is Resilio Sync's folder under ~/Library/Application Support. It seems that a large number of the files that are stored here (presumably indexes) are touched fairly often, causing them to be backup up at least two or three times a day, even though nothing in my sync folder(s) has changed. I'd like to propose that indices and other non-crucial files be moved instead to a folder under ~/Library/Caches (which
  17. Hello, Resilio does not start under Sierra. I double click on it an nothing happens. No Resilio process in activity monitor. I re-installed with no success. Is that a known problem or does anybody have an idea what could be wrong? Thanks in advance!
  18. I don't have context menu for resilio sync on my mac. What is the proper way to delete a file from all devices then?
  19. Hi there, is there a way to have the files that live at ~/Library/Resilio Sync live on another disk? The files tend to get quite large and my SSD is quite small. Is there a property I can change? Or it simply a simlink? If it's a simlink, will it work or will I irreparably break the universe? Thanks!!
  20. BitTorrent Sync is running in excess of 100% of the CPU on OS X Sierra ( GM Version 16A319). Any betas out I can test? I'm running Version 2.3.8 (2.3.8) Thanks, Paul
  21. Is there a known bug with Mac program files (DMG) synching? I had two folders that were finished synching yesterday. I took one file, a 6.6 MB OS X app (in DMG format) out of one folder and put it into another folder. The folder the file was added to is now attempting to sync with the other peer, but it's going at around 100 KB/s or less. And these are two computers on the same LAN, so the speed should be in MB/s not KB/s. I am quite puzzled by what I'm seeing. Is this a known issue?
  22. Hi, I have very often high cpu load on my both macs (mac mini and macbook pro). There are no syncing processes running (no uploads, no downloads and no indexing). One core is at 100% for a long time. Version 2.3.10022 (0) Best regards Kay
  23. I am running BitTorrent Sync 2.0 on a MacBook Air, running Yosemite. I have been having trouble with my SSD filling up and I have tracked the problem down to, essentially, the size of the ~/Library/Application Support/BitTorrent Sync directory, which currently stands at 21GB (and growing). There are several different types of files in the directory -- settings.dat{.old}, history.dat{.old}, sync.dat{.old}, sync.log{.old}, lock,, *.db{-shm,-wal}, and .journal -- but the real problem seems to be with the *.journal.log files; there are hundreds of these, with 3 to 5 new ones every minute.
  24. Hi, i've installed BTSync on my Synology and on two Macs to sync around 100k files in about 25 GB (lots of JPG and RAW files and a Lightroom database). So far it works… but… The Mac-Client – on is a MacBook Pro – is doing an 'indexing' every 10 Minutes. Every 'indexing' takes a few minutes where BTSync is consuming up to 100% CPU. I've searched a bit and read some longer threads about this indexing-feature but i think i didn't really get it: - Indexing is building a catalogue of all files that i like to sync to detect new/deleted files? - But then, changes made on one
  25. I tried to setup a sync from desktop to desktop however opening files on the second machine produces an error that the proper index was not found. Also during sync we get several errors about a large time differences.
