  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. While the Linux client is web UI only, there doesn't seem to be a web UI option for Mac or Windows. Is it possible to set up a web UI for Mac/Windows? I run a headless Mac server, so not having a web UI is kind of annoying for me...
  8. Hi Folks. Two macs, a Mac Pro and an iMac, both (were) running BitTorrent Sync (Sorry I do not remember the version, BUT I just downloaded from the BT site a week ago, so I assume current) hang at shutdown until I press and hold the power button. There is no information in the system log about this... and I can't even say 100% it is BT's issue, however once I uninstalled BTS they shutdown as usual. Any Mac users see this? BTW, BTS is an amazing piece of software that nobody else seems to be able to figure out how to do correctly! So thanks for that! :-) Here are quick sys. specs:
  9. I'm using BTS 1.1.106 to sync a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.6.8 and an iMac running 10.9.3. After doing my first sync, the sync'd folder and every subfolder--on both machines--now has today's date, not their original date before the sync. (The files within the folders have the correct dates.) I have seen variations on this question but no answers. Is this really how it's supposed to work???
  10. Hi, I have the client installed on a Mac and a Windows 7 PC. I have two folders sync'd across both devices. I've noticed that the sync will often stall, for no obvious reason. Each time it does, restarting the Windows 7 client seems to make no difference, but when I restart the Mac client, it immediately starts syncing again, so looks like the problem is at the Mac end. I assume this is not down to file locking, otherwise it wouldn't start syncing again as soon as I restart the application? The Mac is set to never sleep. Does anyone have any ideas? Regards, Mark
  11. Hi everyone! I am trying to sync my Home directory with 1.3.105 on OS X 10.9.3 but it seems like my .SyncIgnore file is being (partially?) ignored. This is what it looks like: # .SyncIgnore is a UTF-8 encoded .txt file that helps you specify single files, paths and rules # for ignoring during the synchronization job. It supports "?" and "*" wildcard symbols.####/Music/Dropbox/Library*.aplibraryiPhoto Library# Synology #@eaDir# hidden files #.*# OS generated files #.DS_Store.DS_Store?._*.Spotlight-V100.Trashesehthumbs.dbdesktop.iniThumbs.db# Finder
  12. Hi I use Bittorrent Sync on my two MacBooks and on a Raspberry Pi. But after this update... Fixed stream appearing as after updating 1.2.91. ... all devices syncing all the time. If i disable the Raspberry Pi it works, but i need it. How can i fix this Problem? Thanks Anna
  13. I am new to bit torrent. I have an iMAC and a mac book pro. Does anyone know if I can use BitTorrent Sync to keep the personal folders in mac mail synchronised on each machine? If so how do I set that up? Thank you and apologies if this is a really silly question.
  14. The new iWork 13 including Numbers, Pages and Keynote have gone back to "folders" as app file. However these do not sync correctly. In face most sync programs like Dropbox, SugarSync, Dropbox, Wuala are having problems syncing these new folders, as they incorrectly detect updates. How far are you guys in making this work?
  15. Please tell me it's simple enough to migrate my external sync drive from my PC to the new Mac I'm replacing the old PC with. My sync folder is on an external drive and I hope someone can tell me how this can be accomplished. Thanks for the help!
  16. Hi, I have not been able to run BittorrentSync app using the --config parameter. After I run it, nothing happens and the app doesn't run. Anyone managed to get this running on Mac OS X? Thanks.
  17. Hi. I have an Xserve with Mavericks as well as a PC with Windows 8. I set up a folder to sync on the server. When I enter the master secret along with the folder on Win8 it says, the secret were invalid. When using another Mac all is fine. Whats wrong here? Thanks! Klaus LöffladSpezialist für Apple Produkte
  18. My WD My Cloud was powered off the other day, and while I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the issue I'm having now, I figured I'd mention it. Suddenly, no folders display in the UI for the drive (IP Address:8888 in my browser), and when I attempt to add a new folder I get this popup: No matter how long I let it sit (originally under the thought that it was processing and would load the folders), nothing ever loads in the popup. Do I have to do something to refresh BitTorrent Sync? It's obviously installed on the drive otherwise I wouldn't be seeing that screen at all, but I'
  19. For example: [1] + 33469 bus error /Applications/ --config If the directory specified for the pidfile is missing, or the storage_path isn't accessible, or AFAICT the pseudo-JSON you are using isn't valid. I'd strongly advise dropping the `// comments` from the format, and enabling us to use normal JSON parsers and validators to manage this.
  20. Dear all I've been using btsync for a while with my nas synology and my mac. After a dificult start everything was fine. Now (six month latter) I want to use btsync on my window pc as well. I thus have 3 devices that are syncing a same folder. However the sync is only partial between the pc and the two others devices, here are the details 1 synology 712+, MacOSX.6 x64, Win7 x64, all btsync clients up to date - I copied my file on a folder on the syno and then add the folder to btsync - On the mac, I added this folder in btsync app and waited the sync to be done up to here the syno
  21. Hello, I recently started to use Sync to keep several computers in sync with respect to my working documents - things like .doc, .ppt, .txt and similar. Unfortunately, several of these "working" files end up never getting synced. The sync status shows as complete, there are no visible errors anywhere, but several of the files are missing on my other computers. I can only see them on the computer that created them. It seems to be that something goes awry with often-saved files. Static/archived files are fine - I have GBs of files properly synched. I run into issues though for "working" f
  22. 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.
  23. hi all, I've set up BitTorrent Sync on two raspberry pi's -- I created a shared folder on pi1, the folder has some files in, normal sorts of stuff, text files, png, wav, etc. But the interface is just showing 0 B in 0 files. I put the key into a new shared folder on pi2 and nothing happens. I tried editing some of the files on pi1 to see if it would 'force' btsync to reindex, no luck. The strange thing is, I put the same key into a new shared folder on my mac and drop an image into the empty folder and it propagates the file to the pis. Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is th
  24. In my application support folder on Mountain Lion 10.8.5 I had a bit torrent folder of 5.9GB! It turned out that in the folder there was log file of that size. When I double clicked it, it opened the console and showed an endless list of messages. So I deleted the folder and it had no effect on bit torrent sync. Perhaps the size can be limited and automatically trigger a delete operation with an update?
  25. This is at best a very edge issue for someone doing sync on a mac, but the old pre-osx/legacy 4-digit Type and Creator codes are (unsurprisingly) not synced. The vast majority of users syncing apple to apple aren't going to encounter this, but it is something to point out if some mac user with a legacy app is suddenly thinking they have corrupted files. Not surprising given that apple label/tags don't get synced either. Re-entering the appropriate codes for the affected file does fix the problem.
