I've been using BTSync for a while on my FreeNAS, Macbook, and 2 Windows PC's, and the other day I tried to find an excel file that I'd created, but it was gone. It was in a folder that is synced between all my devices, I created it a few months ago, so a few things could have happened or contributed. - I swapped my old Windows laptop for a new Macbook - I swapped out the 2 HDD's on my NAS, but soon after, had to swap them back to the original disks. - My NAS had been performing system wide ZFS snapshots, but 90% of the space had been taken up, so I had to delete them - (I've since setup selective backups, but not before the file went missing) - Updated BTSync to 1.4 from 1.3 on all my devices (1.4.103 on my Macbook) - The BTSync service had stopped on my NAS for a while (I don't know how long for) so my work PC wasn't being synced for a bit (I hadn't made any changes to the folder in that time though) I'm not sure what's happened, or how or when, & I can't remember if I deleted it; I don't think I would have, but there's always that possibility; & everything else seems to be intact. What's strange is, I can't find any trace of it with any file recovery tools. The only thing I have is a recent file entry in Excel on my old Windows laptop. I've seen traces of really old files, but not this one that I'm looking for. It's not in the folder's sync archive either. It's not the most important file in the world, but I'm wondering why there is no evidence of it anywhere, and if BTSync has anything to do with why it can't be found. I'd also like to know if there's some sort of incompatibility with data recovery, before anything more valuable potentially goes missing.
