After a share is completed, I would be interested in a button or rightclick menu option to do a MD5 integrity check on each file in the share automatically to make sure the hard drive or data is not corrupted, and that the data is exacting as it is copied. I am actually using this as a RAID across a 1TB harddrive and would like to make sure the one folder is exact compared to the other folder. I dont care how long it takes. that is not a factor. I have had corrupted torrents and aftera forced recheck, it drops the damaged package, and just redownloads a new packet to fill in the spot. It would be great to have that kind of file security on this system as well. This isnt just for the software, sometimes the hardware such as a harddrive or something goes bad and will not write data correctly to a particular sector or seg. I would like to be able to verify after that the data is exacting regardless of all else. Would it be too hard to integrate to make a VERIFY INTEGRITY button and make it MD5 Hash possibly files in the structure systematically?
First of all I must say BTSync is absolutely brilliant! I've been looking for a program like this for a long time and finally it is available ! Most of the time the program does a great job, but I'm having some trouble syncing a large Truecrypt volume of 8GB. I've set Truecrypt to change the timestamp after closing the volume. When I open the encrypted volume and add a tiny textfile (or make a small change to the folder structure) and then close the volume again, BTSync picks up the change and starts indexing. After a while a new event is shown in the History tab stating 'Updated file personal.tc'. So, I made a small change to my Truecrypt volume on the 'source machine' and BTSync stated that the volume was updated. But when I open the volume on the 'target' machine there is no change (MD5 checksums of both files are different). It seems like in this case BTSync is able to detect a change in the file, but isn't able to detect the blocks that are changed. Is there anyone who can explain what is going wrong. What can I do to fix this issue (or have this issue fixed by the BT-team)? Thanks in advance!
