  1. Hello! I'm running stock Marshmallow on my Asus Zenfone 2. I have a problem with trying to access my SD card on Resilio Sync. With other applications, I am taken to the document picker and am able to choose my SD card and choose the root SD folder to grant permissions. I have done that with Total Commander and X-Plore among other applications so I know this is not an OS bug. When I select the SD card in Resilio Sync however, I'm taken to a document picker with nothing to pick. I have unistalled and reinstalled Sync several times, trying various options like cleari
  2. Hello, I sync my music files/library to the '/music' folder on my Synology DS218+ NAS using Resilio. When I look on the NAS file manager, I can see the files. However, the NAS audiostation/mediastreaming app cant access/see/use those music files. If I manually delete, then drag and drop the music files into the NAS it all works fine. Looks like I am having a permissions issue I think(?) What can I do to fix that?
  3. Hello, I clicked the + button and used "Create folder" to add my DCIM directory on my SD card to which my phone's camera saves all of my pictures. Initial sync made sure that all my photos are on my Desktop. Now that I've got them there, I moved (ie. deleted) them to another directory on my PC so they no longer exist (hence deleted) in the Resilio Sync directory. With Read/Write permissions, I would expect Sync to now delete this pictures from my Android device, but this didn't happen. What might I be doing wrong or did I not understand how Sync should work?
  4. Hello, I tried add some folder to sync (for example /var/www/) but I see error "Don'thave permissions to write to selected folder" I can't change permissions for this folder, can I up permissions for resilio? Than You! CentOS 7 resilio-sync-2.5.8-1.x86_64
  5. Hey Guys, first of all sorry for my bad english :). The Advanced Folders have the nice option, to change the permissions for the devices once the folder is created and shared. I use 2 Android devices and 1 Windows computer. On Windows there's the option to chage the permissions of the Android devices, on Android, I can't change them, basically I can't create Advanced Folders. The only possibility is to create an Advanced Folder on Windows and share it with the Android device. Also, why can't I change the permission from my Windows computer? It's always Owner and can't be changed to R
  6. Does the sync also bring over the file/user privileges with the files? thanks
  7. Hello, I had a problem when I switched SD cards (disabling synchronization temporarily). My sync folders are in the first SD card, but I needed to use a second one temporarily and when I put the main SD card, that has the sync folders, back on sync said it didn't have permission on the folders. Thank you
  8. I have four directories on my linux system that I want to sync. For local security and management purposes, each folder (and all its contents) should have a different group owner and umask 0027. So, I thought I would initiate four parallel installs of rslsync. Each would be configured with just one of the folders shared. And rslsync would be launched with the desired group and umask settings four times. I've run into trouble because it seems the configuration for the second "instance" is clobbering the first. (which was initially working fine) I don't understand how to use
  9. hi How might one get Sync to write synched files with file permissions different from the defalt (755) to (775)? Here is context. I'm synching well, however when I use my Filezilla client to delete a file synched by Sync i don't have permissions My 'fix' is to add my user to the group btsync, however permissions aren't write for group, so my user can't delete files. (would this work? i think so but I'm a bit of a noob) or during configuration can i make btsync user my username to write ? Cheers, Geoff.
  10. I have Synology 212j and I successfully installed BTsync. I want to create encrypted folder to NAS, but I cant.
  11. I'm using QNAP TS451 with 4.2 firmware. I plan to sync photos across my iPhone and wife's iPhone, or at least back them up on the server. Every other app has sucked so far, so this looked promising. First time I loaded the qpkg just by searching with the built in QNAP app manager (ver 2.3.6) and though the btsync screen loaded beautifully and was user friendly, if I tried to link my phone and set a destination folder, it errors saying "sync doesn't have permissions to this folder" no matter where I put it. Even pre creating the folder in QNAP. I tried to change permissions to give
  12. Applies to: BTSync v.2.3.3 (296) Windows 7, 8/8.1, Windows 10 -- Home and Professional. BTSync prompts to install as a service -- but doesn't follow Windows service account conventions as other programs do, (IIS, MySQL, SQL Server, etc). Issues: Software Defect: Some installations, (like BitTorrent Sync), will not install the Windows Service -- unless a regular user account is specified. Expected Behavior: Should automatically provide the correct NT Service account identity, or at least allow the user too. Security Issue: The user is forced to create anoth
  13. I'm not sure whether this is one or two bugs, but the problems are manifesting like this: 1. A friend shares an "owner" link with me, but I get only "read & write" permissions. When I hover over the share button, it's greyed out and says, "Only an owner may share an advanced folder." 2. I add a folder, but my only share permissions available are "read only" and "read & write". I've got six shared folders, but in fact only the first one lets me share "Owner" permissions.
  14. I already fixed it, just thought other people might experience and this might help. I have an encrypted device (SD card) mounted to drive letter "Y" Every time I tried to direct BT Sync to the drive, I received the "Don't Have Permission To Write To The Selected Folder" error. I was using the "manual connection" and pasting the link. After basically reviewing every permission and setting and wasting hours... I realized that BT Sync was adding another \ to the destination path. So Y:\Folder became Y:\\Folder - causing the error. This ONLY happened on the encrypted SD card - when I used an
  15. I was ready to fully embrace BitTorrent Sync (2.2), but have come across permission errors. Folders that are server shares are not able to be synced, even if they are physically attached to the computer and not shared via network. It complains that it doesnt have write permissions, which is understandable, as read&write permissions are only set to group and using ACLs (Access Control Lists). BTSync could very easily be able to write to those folders, by authorizing itself to do so by entering the user/admin password in OS X. That is how all other software gets to write to places which
  16. Right now, I am just using the free version of BTSync (and I am past the Pro Trial). Can multiple identities have their permission set to 'Owner' for the same shared BTSync Folder? When I share a folder, and I choose "Owner" under permission, the other user does NOT actually get that permission when they add that share folder... they don't get the owner 'crown' icon & they cannot create a share link for that folder.
  17. I am currently running Android 5 Lollipop with Sync installed. I am trying to point Sync's default save location to my Music folder on my SD card. However, I keep getting an error stating "Android OS restricts write access to this directory" wherever I try and create a folder or select a folder on my SD card. I thought this restriction had been removed in Lollipop so apps can write to their own created folders on SD cards? I can grant write access to other apps, such as file explorer apps which I can copy and move files with to the SD card with no issues. I really need to be able to
  18. Hello, It seems that Bittorrent Sync always tries to open files on file system with read-write access, or at least checks if read-write access is possible. If there are files which Sync process doesn't have a permissions to write to, then these files are not transferred to other devices. I can understand that write permission is needed to update a file from other peers if it is changed on that peers, but what if all other shares used only read-only key, would it still be needed? Would it be possible to add such a feature to create a share with possibility to expose only a read-only key,
  19. Hi there. I'm looking into BTsync and how it could fit in our movie pipeline. We would use it for syncing material from on-set to our facility and to our SAN via a server with Xsan and fibre access to SAN. The issue here is that the DIT will have to delete files from his/hers local storage every now and then. I don't want to sync those deletions but i do want to sync everything he/she adds to shared folders. We would have the same setup when it comes to VFX. We would need some extra control over what they locally deletes that ripples through to our side. Cheers and thanks.
  20. Hi there! Sync 2.0 seems to be working so far...after quite a challenging setup for three pc's and two Android devices. Thanks to the developers for all the work! If, after updates, this keeps on working like how I set it up, I would buy the software. One thing though, I notice that no matter what settings I fondle with, when I share folders, with "disconnected" setting by default, other linked devices can always add those folders to sync, without me having to give them permission. Even though I select that permission is required. My setup is the following: PC 1 shares folder "shared" wi
  21. Dear all I'm still new regarding btsync and synology and my skill in "network" and "shell" are limited but not null I've recentely installed btsyns on my synology ds712+ using the syno community repo. As the repo did not had the laste version I upgradre manually btsync following the instruction on this post : I then installed btsync on bot my mac and my pc and had a try, everything seemed to work as I feel (even if some few advanced features would be welcomed) For a while, the bi-directional sync was working smoothly between the mac and the syno. However now, sync do not occur anymore and in
  22. I've installed the latest version available in the app store on my iPad mini 3 running ios 8.1. I'm unable to set up camera sync due to permissions issues. The error is that I need to allow sync to have permission to photos. However, sync does not appear under photos. It does, however, have permission to "camera" (which I assume is only for qr codes).
  23. I'm experiencing a camera backup permission problem on 8.1 IOS that I hope someone can help me with. New install of iOs 8.1, just downloaded and started using Bittorrent Sync. When I swipe to enable camera backup, error says "Bittorrent Sync does not have permission to access your photos. Go to Privacy > Photos > Bittorrent Sync to enable." But, when I go to the privacy settings in my Iphone, Bittorrent Sync is not listed among the apps requesting permission. Any insights or work around? Why isn't Sync requesting permission to access my photos? All I can find on the topic are refere
  24. openSUSE Factory x64 ~ Cannot write to /home/fleamour/Music despite chmoding folder with 777 switch. Is this a bug?
  25. I would like to see the ability for a multi-user sync to allow multiple file owners, each file having its own read-only or write permissions. A typical scenario would be a sync shared with multiple people, each having permission to contribute files to the sync. Users who contribute files would only be allowed to modify their own files, and not the files other people contributed to the sync, unless specifically given that permission to other individuals or everybody. Unfortunately, in order to contribute files today, those same users have the ability to modify all other files in the sync.
