  1. Hi all, I received a raspberry pi for Christmas and I am trying to set it up as a home sync/backup server. I have successfully mounted an external hard drive to my Pi and can interface with it successfully, but Resilio Sync cannot access the hard drive. Question is: is this a Sync issue or a Linux/Rasbpian issue? How can I remedy this? Many thanks
  2. Hey, I'm running BTSync 2.0.105 on a Raspberry Pi 2 and successfully synced 1,8TB and more than 160.000 files from a Drobo 5N to this machine via a read only share. I did the initial sync via LAN, which took about a week. The two devices are now connected via the internet. I recently had to exchange the hard drive of the Pi. I used RSync to copy the data from the old drive and readded the same share using the path to the new hard drive. Unfortunately the reindexing seems to be quite slow. I roughly estimated it will take about a week to reindex and wonder if this is normal, even if there
  3. Update: midway through this post I tried running BT Sync as root, group btsync, and it works. I don't like it, but it works. There is some awful permission-hell happening but I hope this helps someone. Hi, I've spent four days trying to resolve this, and I really am stumped. I can't get BTSync to write to a CIFS mount which is in my home directory, and which is used by various other programs and scripts perfectly fine. What's odd is that when creating a new folder in BT Sync's Web Gui, this is created in the CIFS share correctly, but no files can be synced and it displays the error "Don'
  4. I've been using BTSync for a while now and it's absolutely fantastic! I've just set it up to sync a load of my files between my computer, an external hard drive in my house connected to a Raspberry Pi, and a second Raspberry Pi and external hard drive in my parents house. This had been working very well but today I rebooted the Pi at my parents house and when it came on the GUI (ipAddress:8888/gui) prompted for an account to be created and then showed the no folders message. On the other syncing devices it shows it as offline. I copied the contents of the .sync folder somewhere else so I c
  5. I followed the instructions to install Sync on Raspberry Pi on the blog. wget fails as I believe the Amazon link in the blog entry to the ARM build is dead, so I downloaded 1.4.103 ARM build from I got it to install on my RPi, confirmed by the CLI entry "BitTorrent Sync forked to background. pid = 2372. default port = 8888". But when I use the browser on my Linux Mint desktop to go to , I get a "Unable to connect" error. I have confirmed that the IP is correct by double-checking ifconfig on my RPi, and I am successfully running Sync on my Linux desktop wit
  6. Hello I have bittorrent sync with the package manager on my raspberry pi installed. I would like to set the option limit sending rate to [kB/s] 10. I can set it, but when I open the options again to check my changes, they are lost. The following things I have tried. 1. apt-get update -> no changes (current Version is 1.4.83) 2. the service is running with the debconf-default.conf. Enhanced the right on the file chmod 666. The file is stored /etc/btsync/debconf-default.conf 3. With dpkg-reconfigure: I have not found the option to set it on. What do I wrong? Thanks. jack
  7. I'd like to create a backup solution with raspberry pi and btsync: The Destination is my Computer which syncs the data to a hard drive conncted to the raspberry pi. At the same time I would like to sync the files to a gaerman storage provider (strato hdrive) which supports ftp. Would this be possible with btsync or do I need an additional application to transfer the files to this storage?
  8. Hello. I have set up a raspberry pi to be connected to my Wi-Fi network at home, have a USB connected 1TB hard drive, and have set up owncloud. Owncloud works with my external hard drive, but for some reason BT Sync does not work in syncing files. I have disabled relay and tracker servers because I only need it to work on LAN. On the GUI page, it shows that nothing is syncing to the folders I made a secret on my Mac and entered on the Pi and set it to save on the external hard drive. I think the problem is either the listening port is not open (which I don't really understand what it does), or
  9. I have a simple setup. I have two folders on an x86_64 machine that sync to an ARM machine. This has worked fine for about a week. Today I upped the ante. I added a new 40GB folder to sync between machines. I added the folder on the source machine, the x86_64. After it indexed, I added it as ro on the ARM machine and the sync began. I stepped away and returned an hour later to find BTSync had died on the ARM machine. I don't see any clear errors in the sync.log file on the ARM machine. I ran btsync from terminal on the ARM machine to try and get more info. [root@arm .sync]# btsyn
  10. Hello everyone. I got my Raspberry Pi today and I followed the following instructions followed on this website. The instructions were really easy to follow. But I ran into a few issues that I'd like to hear your opinion about. I would like to change the trash time. On windows and Mac OS it's easy to change from 30 days to 45 or 180 or whatever. How can I modify it? I ran into a storage problem. I used the following command lines to format the USB drive to test it out. df -h # find your drive
  11. Here is my scenario. I have a desktop computer (CompA) I have a 3TB HDD connected to Raspberry Pi ? I want to transfer files and folders , when they are placed in the shared folder , from CompA to the HDD connected to R-Pi. CompA(BTsync folder) --> R-Pi HDD(BTsync directory) I then want to free up space on CompA by deleting the files from the shared folder, as soon as the sync is complete. I don't want the files on the HDD connected to the R-Pi be deleted. What would be the best way to achieve this. is there a way to find out on the pi as to when a transfer session has compl
  12. Hi, I am a php developer and work at home on a Mac Mini. When I work at my customers offices I use a MacBook Air. Until now I used Dropbox to keep things in sync, after having upgraded to OSX 10.9 I started facing a number of issues so I am looking for an alternative solution. Actually I am playing with a Raspberry Pi in order to see if I can use it to replace Dropbox to keep my development and documents folders in sync. I have installed BTSync following the instructions at: and left it runn
  13. Hi all, I've hooked btsync onto a raspberry pi via this tutorial: I can successfully ping my windows laptop from the raspberry pi and visa-versa.The raspberry pi web gui shows that I am connected to the windows laptop and that files should be transferring.However, my windows laptop does not show that I am connected to the raspberry pi, and no files are being transferred.Any ideas? The initial search suggests that its a firewall issue, but being able to ping both ways sug
  14. A pictures folder that was transferring (hadn't finished first sync) when I upgraded to 1.2.73 has now stuck saying there are no more updates, and doesn't want to transfer. The other machine which has the folder says this one (my Raspberry Pi) is connected, but there are no transfers in progress. I added another folder since the upgrade, and this one is syncing without issue. The folder just keeps saying Indexing, and that there is 14GB to upload to the other machine, which isn't right, as this is the machine that should be pulling - but it just never transfers anything. I'm not a Linux pr
  15. I have a RaspBerry PI set up as a btsync-station and it works great! But after setting up two different syncs for two different folders I noticed that the transfers speeds went from ok to crawling (around 5-10kb/s).. My suspicion is that the number of concurrent transfers is what is causing the slow transfer since the Raspberry Pi with an external USB-drive should be much better at handling one file at a time. And I did not see this low speed until I went from one folder syncing to two folders. So my question is if there is any way to limit the number of concurrent transfers? The number of
  16. Hi ~! I am Newbie!! kk. I had a problem, but I don't know what to do. -------------------------------------------------------------------- I want to sync very fast file system that consists of an internal network of 10 raspberry pie. We must be synchronized faster than P2P general model. So I've used the BittorrentSync but speed was very slow. Perhaps, there seems to be a limit on the maximum number of peer BittorrentSync. I want to know how that can be synchronized to the high speed by using the Bittorrent protocol. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Thx for
  17. Hi, Linux novice here. I have a home network, mainly Windows. I want to share my movies library with a family member around 100 miles away. He wants to do the same with me, so we will have an identical library at each location. As more movies are ripped to a library they will sync across both libraries. Bittorrent Sync on Raspberry Pi looks ideal, I've made a start but hit a barrier. I have 2 ADSL lines at home so I've tested this across the LAN and also over the internet. Everything seems to work correctly if each library is on a drive on its RPi (USB stick). But, at both ends we have o
