  1. I purchased Home Pro to get selective sync feature, which is widely available from other Cloud client, like Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive However, I'm very disappointed at the feature. This placeholder concept is beyond me. Any plan to make this selective sync work as other common cloud client? The disadvantage of Resilio approach 1 - not so effective, it creates 100K+ placeholders even before I have opportunity to disable sync for a directory at root level. 2- what if I need to add a locally removed directory back at a later time?
  2. I use Resilio to sync a music library across multiple devices, some of which have limited space On devices with limited space, I'd like to exclude some folders, using the selective sync feature But, when I add new music to the library, I want it to sync across all devices automatically Just syncing the placeholders is partially helpful, as it lets me import the music on the selective sync clients using the file browser But placeholders aren't going to show up in my music player, so if the new files don't sync automatically, I have to go to a lot of manual effort Right now, when you add a new file, a placeholder will appear in all selective sync clients. I'd like to be able to configure the default behavior (sync the placeholder, or sync the entire file) on a per-share basis, when selective sync is enabled. I'd like to be able to do this by checking a checkbox in the 'Preferences' window of the share.
  3. Hi I just tried to use selective sync and I cannot figure out how to get the files to download I am using windows 7 with the resilio sync application. I have started a download/sync and when I click on the sync item in the resilio sync application it opens the folder location containing RSLS files how do I tell the software to download the files I want. I don't see any check boxes and when right click a files no option to download. I have found if I double click an item it will start to download but this cant be the correct method? Thanks for the reply.
  4. To match the capability of the computer app, It would be extraordinarily beneficial to be able to selectively sync a single sub-folder inside of a shared folder, and have all of its contents automatically synced. I believe this is most essential on mobile where I would need to access a few photos quickly, without waiting for every item to download, yet conserving storage space as much as possible.
  5. We have a couple Sync nodes setup using selective sync. We're running 2.0.120 on all nodes. One node has all the files and the other nodes have only some of them. While setting up additional nodes, we accidentally mixed identities between a couple nodes. That confusion broke the syncing. Correcting the identities on the nodes did not restore sync functionality. The selective nodes no longer downloaded files even when the download file pref was set. Mostly the nodes seemed stalled. They correctly processed the file pref update but downloading did not happen. After some time spent searching forums for help, we gave up and deleted all .sync folders on the nodes effectively resetting them. We then set them up again and re-established the link to the node with all the files. At that point transferring new files was possible, so the nodes were mostly functional again. However, Sync does not update the state of the previously synced files. It does index them, is aware the files exist but always indicates it has zero pieces despite the full files being present. Update the download pref to 1 doesn't help either. The logs end up looking like this: [20150616 09:05:48.056] SF[C24D] [F24B]: Connect files to peer, queue size 2 [20150616 09:05:48.056] ScheduledTask:ConnectMorePeers invoked:timer reason:UnloadInactiveTorrents - torrent wants connection [20150616 09:05:48.056] SF[C24D]: Torrent /vmfs/volumes/datastore/folder1/file1.vmdk state:6 error: meta:1 conns:0 io:0 [20150616 09:05:48.056] SF[C24D]: Torrent /vmfs/volumes/datastore/folder1/file1-delta.vmdk state:3 error: meta:1 conns:0 io:16 [20150616 09:05:49.056] SF[C24D]: Will try to find peer for file "/vmfs/volumes/datastore/folder1/file1.vmdk" [20150616 09:05:49.056] SF[C24D]: Will try to find peer for file "/vmfs/volumes/datastore/folder1/file1-delta.vmdk" So far the only way I've found to get the node back into the correct state is to delete the files off the node and set the download flag to 1 so they are downloaded again. Downloading again is not a viable solution since we have a large number of files to resync and there are bandwidth limitations. Is there a way to convince a Sync node that it has a file already without re-downloading? Thanks.
