  1. Hi, I have setup a read-sync folder on my android, with selective-sync. I have a library of audiobooks, where each folder contains 100-200 wma or mp3 files. When I sync a folder, all audio-book files are downloaded. Bittorrent-sync states that all files are successfully downloaded. When I view the files in an android explorer, size of file looks ok. But when I try to play in VLC, not all files are playable. When i download 100 files, generally 5-10 files are corrupt. I.e. media player cannot read audio-tag information, or play the file. When I "clear" the corrupt files in bittorrent-sync and re-download them, they are usually ok to play again. I.e. I am confident that files are ok on server, but become corrupt on my Android device while downloading. Why does Bittorrent sync think files are ok? When they actually are not? Is this the root-cause Android platform? Is the root-cause an WMA or mp3 issue? May I encounter the same phenomena on other files as jpg when syncing between NAS-Windows application. I am worried for my picture backups too. I have updated to the latest 2.3.7 version on all server, and downloaded latest android, which is 2.3.5.
  2. Hey Guys - I have been using BTSync Pro on a variety of devices for over a year now and recently upgraded them to Resilio Sync - I love the app! 90% of my overall traffic is sent from a system running Ubuntu to a Windows 10 system where I'm on the latest Resilio version on each and they are running as a service. My question is how can I make the Ubuntu pair of sync folders "Read Only" so that if I were to add anything in the sync folders on the Windows 10 side, they would not be uploaded? Also, can this be configured on existing connected synced folders? Since I'm using Pro, I recently disconnected one of the folders then deleted it as an option to connect to. Once done, I added the folder on the Linux side, ensured "Read Only" was selected, then once it appeared on the Windows side connected it to the matching folder. To make sure it worked, I added a test,txt file on the Windows side, but it appeared back in Linux after a minute (isn't working). Why? Do I need to connect to the folder on the Windows side using a key instead of choosing to connect from the available folder? Thanks! UPDATE After posting, I disconnected and deleted the sync again from both boxes. I added a folder on the Linux side and on the Windows side instead of connecting from the sync that appeared, I pasted in the key produced with "Read Only" selected in Linux. Once done, I tested again but it still didn't work as files I added in the Windows folder were added in the Linux folder. Argh! Any ideas? Thanks!
  3. Hello, I have the pro version of Bittorrent Sync and I guess to have found a bug. I have two installations, one with my own identity and another with a test identity. Now the test: 1) Create a folder with some data to sync on the personal identity 2) Share the folder with the Android Device with the test identity and choose "Read Only" 3) Connect to the folder with the test identity 4) First, the granted permissions suddenly change to Read/Write and second, they are only changeable to Owner and Read/Write but not to Read only This can be reproduced at least on my fresh installation (the 3rd installation at least, due to other problems and no reaction from the BT-Team: What do I pay for? They say support within 24 hours!!). The rights can not be changed from neither of my 3 devices to read only for the test identity. On the other hand: If I share the folder from my laptop, the permissions can be changed in all variations and the seem to work.
  4. 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.
  5. Whenever I add a new folder to the web gui (linked to Synology NAS) it's added as Read & Write only. So when I subsequently link the destination folder, this only accepts the Read & Write key. How do I add folders as Read Only, so if I edit the info in the destination it does not edit the NAS source. Thanks a lot.
  6. I have performed the following test: Installed btsync on my desktop and NAS On my PC created folder TestFolder with files a.py and b.py Added this folder to btsync through http://localhost:8888 Copied read-only secret Entered http://nas-ip:8888 in order to add my PC folder to sync (with the read-only secret) Content was synced between my NAS and PC Added, removed and modified files on my PC - changes were applied to NAS (as expected) Removed file (e.g. a.py) from NAS - nothing happened to my PC folder (as expected) I expected the file (a.py) to be sent back to NAS once next sync event was triggered (i.e. within 10 minutes) but nothing happen (not expected) The questions is: how do I resync files that were mistakenly deleted from NAS? In a way it's a nice feature not to download such files (well, since they were removed, then most likely I don't want them to sync), but I'd appreciate a simple way to force a full sync. Did anyone else experience similar issue? Is there any workaround?
  7. Hello, All over the marketing and the forums, it is stated that Bittorrent Sync uses 256-bit AES encryption, and also nowhere is the cipher mode actually stated. I have information that shows me that Bittorrent Sync is instead, actually (potentially) using 128-bit AES encryption. Whilst this may not be insecure, it shows (provided there isn't something beyond the story) that the Sync team is either not being truthful about the security, or there is a disconnect. The other problem (again, provided there isn't something else beyond the story) is that the cipher mode is ECB, or Electronic Code Book. It means there is no mode at all, which is definitively the least secure method of using AES. Is ECB what is used over the wire, or is a cipher mode implemented over this ECB? I have attached a screenshot (also available at https://i.minus.com/i4FurGjh8WjUW.png ) that shows why I believe this is the case. Notice the lines "pbData.aiKeyAlg = CALG_AES_128" near the middle, and "v13 = CRYPT_MODE_ECB" about 1/5 of the way from the bottom. Also while I'm here, can a developer explain how read-only keys work, and how 1) malicious nodes are prevented from syncing in new or modified files, as well as 2) how a read-only node knows the difference between another read-only node and a regular node? Please give the low-level gritty explanation, as I would prefer that over a higher-level one. Thanks
  8. Hi, I use BitTorrent Sync in read-only mode. It works almost perfectly (bug with some files, still no resolved) but I'm wondering if it's possible to let the synced files where they are when they are deleted on the other side? Explanation: - I have a Linux server 'A' and a NAS 'B'. - I create a sync on 'A' - I put the read-only secret on 'B' - Files are synced correctly and when I delete a file in 'A', I find this same file in the SyncTrash on 'B'. And I would like to know if it's possible to not move this file in 'B' when I delete it in 'A'. Thank you for your help and excuse me for my bad english.
