  1. 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 "Use a relay server when required" in Resilio Sync's settings - Enabling UPnP on both routers (on by default) - Connecting both machines directly to their respective modems via ethernet cable bypassing the routers Nothing seems to work, I am honestly out of ideas but perhaps somebody here has a resolution. Both machines are on the latest version of Resilio Sync 2.5.9 Any help would be appreciated!! Edit: All the sudden its back up to full speed again after being slow for like a month... Miracle?
  2. After using Resilio and BTsync since 1.X i recently upgraded to home pro and am getting my devices organized. I was having trouble with a folder getting "failed to download.. initial re-check" and disconnected it. Now its gone on my laptop. I cant see it in Disconnected or All folder views. V2.5.6 OSX 10.11.6
  3. From time to time we need to google our way to this article in order to fix the problem of the Finder integration not working. Searching for this problem on the forums shows that it is still a quite recurrent theme these days. I remember having issues with this in 2014. Three years later, this is still a thing, and the number one annoyance with Sync in our office. Should Resilio invest a little more effort into fixing this thing? I mean, Dropbox is essentially having the same desktop integration, and I have had a problem with that since using that in 2009. What about doing some cleanup/resetting related to this each time the machine is restarted to ensure this thing keeps on working (probably something you already do, but still ...)?
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. Dear forum, since the patch from Apple the day before Yesterday on my OSX 10.11.6. BTSync really became buggy on my machine. The UI reacts horribly slowly and sync often hangs. I already downloaded the latest version of BTSync and reinstalled but with no positive effect. Is anybody else experiencing these issues? Thanks Norbert
  7. I am backing up my Windows Phone pictures using Bittorrent Sync, and when it (finally) connects to my Mac it usually works fine. But I can never get the sync to fully finish as BT Sync on my Mac says it is trying to copy "809 files to" my Windows Phone. Which is strange, given that my Mac got a read-only link from the mobile device ... Something seems fishy here :-/
  8. Hi, there seems to be a small problem when OSX awakes from Sleep. BitTorrent Sync won't reconnect to the predefined host I configured. But If I restart the application it reconnects without any problems. OSX environment: Version 2.3.3 1 predefined host Disabled UPnP Disabled tracker Disabled relay Predefined Host environment (no NAS) FreeBSD 10.2 Version 2.3.1 Disabled UPnP Disabled tracker Disabled realy Thanks.

  9. I have been using BTSync for a while and still have some old folders from the v1.2/v1.4 beta time (or whatever the version was in the beginning) in case this could be relevant or help troubleshooting my issue. I never noticed any problems with my folders, but since I recently linked my devices and connected a couple of folders (now using v2.3), some inconsistencies became apparent. A couple of folders (most likely the oldest ones) only seem to only have a single "READ-ONLY" key when looking into the "Preferences > View Key" section of BTSync. However, when hovering over them with the mouse, they are shown as "Read & Write Standard Folder". The symbol also looks plain normal without the read-only indicator inside the app as well as inside Finder (I am using OS X). So far so good. Today, I linked another device with my main computer and noticed that on this machine the connected folder is shown as read-only in the Finder view. However, it still listed as a Read & Write folder inside BTSync (with the default folder icon). It obviously it also only has a "Read-only" key, same as on my main computer. When I add files on this machine, it appears they do not get synced. As I never added this as a read-only folder or want this to be the case - how can I change it? All I found is this outdated article: but it seems you can no longer find an "Update Key" button in the folder preferences So would I have to remove this folder and re-add it (loosing connections to other machines in the process) ? Or is there another way to "upgrade" this folder to behave just like the other ones?
  10. Yesterday, I bought a new individual license, downloaded the updated Sync 2.2 client, and installed it on my Mac running OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite. All attempts to open the application fail silently. I created a support ticket for the issue, and provided Console log messages. 9/15/15 7:00:03.193 PM taskgated[98] no application identifier provided, can't use provisioning profiles [pid=24141]9/15/15 7:00:03.206 PM BitTorrent Sync[24141] WARNING: The Gestalt selector gestaltSystemVersion is returning 10.9.5 instead of 10.10.5.

Because the application fails to run, I had to manually created the suggested debug.txt file. I again tried to open the application, and again it failed. Nothing new was written to the sync.log file. Nothing in ~/Library/Application\ Support/BitTorrent\ Sync/ was modified. Deleting and reinstalling the application did not help. The Support team seems clueless, considering they wanted me to perform actions that require the application to actually open in the first place. Anyone here have insight?
  11. Hello to everybody! I use Sync to exchange files with my customers. This is great and so far nobody has had a problem installing it. Unfortunately, two of my recent customers who would like to set up Sync on their computers, run Windows XP and MacOS X 10.7.5. Could you point me to the latest usable versions for Windows XP and MacOS X 10.7.5? I use Sync 2.2., do my folders need to be "standard" - 1.4 folders, if they need to install Sync 1.4? Thanks!
  12. Yesterday evening got my new MacBook Pro up and running, installed Bittorrent Sync Pro and enabled syncing of my favorite folders. Ever since my MacBook feels the need to let the fans run. I thought it was another process at first but no - it's Bittorrent Sync alright. I'll attach some screenshots below. The Programm keeps the CPU busy like there is now tomorrow. Is that, because it has to sync so many folders for the first time? Still it shouldn't bring my battery life down from 9 to 1,5 hours, should it? Dropbox - which started syncinc at the same time uses far less energy. Has someone had similar experiences with Sync? Using BT Sync 2.1.1
  13. 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...
  14. Hello! I has Sync 2.0 (dont remember wich version) running on OSX 10.7, i updated today to latest and OSX 10.7 is not supported anymore. Where i can get Sync past versions? Thanks Cristian
  15. Hi, after several hours of trying, I'm able to short my bug report to this: I have 3 Computers, Two Linux (Raspbian/Debian, Ubuntu), One Mac (Mavericks). The Debian and the Mac uses Sync 2.0, the Ubuntu computer uses Sync 1.4. 1. When I add a 1.4-style read-write key to my mac, my key is one character too short (32 characters). Adding a space solves this, so I can add the folder. The key was once created with an older version of sync. It has no A,B or R in front of it. 2. Although it was a read-write key, the folder will be treated as a read-only folder. It only offers/shows me the RO key and it does sync the way a read-only folder does. It seems like it "forgets" the RW key. 3. There is no read-only-icon shown for this folder within the application. It is shown in the finder (file explorer), though. note: The folder is not already available in my 2.0 identity in a read-only way. I have no fix for 2 and 3. I'm going to log this now and send a mail to the support, but I thought this deserves a thead here.
  16. Hi, I've been using Sync for a while now to backup my photos from my Android phone to an external drive. I just got a new iPhone and I want to use the same system as I have before. When I try to set it up, Sync automatically chooses a folder to back up to, which I don't want. I have tried just copying the key, and then trying to make a "manual connection" but that doesn't let me choose the folder either. How can I specify which folder I want my photos to be in? P.S. Can't really say that I'm enjoying 2.0 very much. Wtf happened?
  17. Hi, trying to sync two Macs (OS X YOSEMITE). BT-Sync creates new folders `desktop1, documents1 etc.` on one mac, instead of syncing the original folders `desktop` and `documents` etc. These folders are generated by OS X system, so i can´t remove them on one of the Macs before syncing. Don´t find a solution. Creating external folders to sync would mean double data -> no sense. Many thanks for help...
  18. First post please understand this. Hello all. I need a bit of help: Here is my scenario: 1. On my computer I create a folder called "research" and add it to Sync and copy the r/w key.2. On my Android, I copy r/w key to Sync and select a source folder (we'll call this folder "research").3. On my Android, I now expect to download file "A" to the folder "research".4. On my computer (assuming appropriate data connectivity) I should see file "A" (originally downloaded from android) in the folder "research". At present, this doesn’t happen. What does occur is this? If I manually add a file from within sync on android, it might show up on the computer or not (I am still researching what works here and what does not). However, If I add a file on the computer, it will show up on android. I thought using the r/w key meant any changes detected on either device would be mirrored to all peers. I would like to have a mirror copy of the home directory of my android so that anything created on android would then appear on computer. Similar to iCloud. At present, sync only works one way, from computer to device. Is this a flaw or feature? What am I not taking into consideration? Computer is OS X, Android is virtual box image (plain android image)
  19. On my laptop, several sync folders are on an external drive. I leave sync running all the time. I just noticed that, while the drive wasn't available, sync has grabbed (apparently randomly) a path to a different folder, on a different external drive. Now the original drive is back, it's saying 'folder not available' because it wants to sync with this folder it's randomly picked. Several other folders on the same drive aren't affected. It's a Macbook Air running Sync 1.4.106 on OS X 10.10.1. I previously ran Sync up to 1.3 with a similar set up and never had this problem; I installed 1.4 from scratch (i.e. re-adding all the folders) and it's been fine for a 5 days. I'm going to remove the rogue folder and re-add the proper one. The history doesn't indicate any damage done, and I hope this doesn't happen again - but any idea what the cause is, or how I can minimise the risk?
  20. Does BitTorrent Sync add the 'archive flag' to files on either OSX or Win7 x64? I'm having issues with playing video files through Plex after I added the files to my BitTorrent sync. Trying to find an entry point to troubleshoot this. Just realized this is in the wrong category.... anyone with access please move to BitTorrent Sync troubleshooting.
  21. Hello All, I wasn't able to find a post describing similar behaviour, so I'm hoping someone here can explain to me if what I'm noticing is normal or not. I've unchecked "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" but what I notice is that syncing doesn't resume until after the display wakes from sleep. Display is asleep, laptop is still running, hard-drive is not sleeping but the display is. I put my password in to see the desktop and then syncing resumes but not until I'm actively using the machine. What setting am I missing, or why is this happening? My assumption was that syncing would happen automatically, once the software noticed changes had been made to the syncing folders (after a 10 minute delay). V.1.4.93 Beta <-- all machines OS X Yosemite <-- all machines Thanks!
  22. 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 some reason, the Dropbox and Library are synced irregardless, at least partially. On the other hand, lots of files in the folder Pictures are missing as well as the whole Documents folder. This is when viewing the folder in the iOS app. The Bittorrent Sync also states the wrong size for the Home on the Mac; 6.1 GB when it should be somewhere around 20 GB (ignored files taken into account). I can influence this size by adding or removing *.aplibrary (the Aperture Library) to .SyncIgnore, so the file does not seem to be ignored entirely. What am I doing wrong?
  23. 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
  24. 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.
