  1. Hi guys! I tryed to update Btsync to resilio, on my phone everything was fine. But my desktops sytem is Debian Jessie, the resilio is not worikng. Here is the manual The program is running, but I can not sync. I try to create a new share, I have to add a full permission for the folder, (drwxrwxrwx ) this is looks very bad... I stopped here because until now the btsync program worked without this. After the installation, I tried check the process this is my superuser. And something is wrong here: $service resilio-sync status ● resilio-sync.service - Resilio Sync service Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/resilio-sync.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since szo 2016-10-29 14:31:07 CEST; 27min ago Docs: http://help.getsync.com/ Process: 5782 ExecStart=/usr/bin/rslsync --config /etc/resilio-sync/config.json (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 5779 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown -R rslsync:rslsync /var/run/resilio-sync (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 5776 ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir -p /var/run/resilio-sync (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 5783 (rslsync) CGroup: /system.slice/resilio-sync.service └─5783 /usr/bin/rslsync --config /etc/resilio-sync/config.json okt 29 14:31:07 mamut systemd[1]: Starting Resilio Sync service... okt 29 14:31:07 mamut systemd[1]: resilio-sync.service: Failed to read PID from file /var/run/resilio-sync/sync.pid: Invalid argument okt 29 14:31:07 mamut systemd[1]: Started Resilio Sync service.

Any idea, what is wrong? best, Attila
  2. I'm looking at Resilio as a solution for a peculiar problem I'm trying to solve. It boils down to two main points: 1. My data is stored on several devices AND/OR external USB drives. I need to sync not only devices, but HDDs and USB drives. Ideally, it shouldn't matter which of my devices i plug the drives into, for a proper synchronization to happen. 2. My data size is larger than any of the individual devices and drives - they need to be populated in a clever manner, to ensure that data is stored at least on 2 different devices/drives. Ideally, I'd like to be able to know which storage devices a particular file is on, if it's not immediately available, and maybe be warned if a particular newly added file hasn't had time to be distributed into the storage and still exists in only one copy. So... Does Resilio offer such features? Or can they somehow be scripted in, as I see there's some automation possible..?

    Sync keeps crashing

    We have a copy of v2.5.12 (1191) that keeps crashing on one of our machines. It will stop responding when opening, and crash when attempting to start. Sometimes it will appear to be uploading, then changing to view the history or devices will cause the crash message. I have a dump file but it is too large to attach to this post... how can I get this log examined so we can get to a solution?
  4. I just performed a sync using BitTorrent Sync v1.4.110. I am 100% certain BitTorrent Sync overwrote newer files with older files. I don't have any idea why it would do this, except for a serious bug. The file dates and file contents clearly show that new files were overwitten by old versions. I had performed a backup of some of the data before enabling the sync, and the backup confirms the problem. A little more detail: I had previously used BitTorrent Sync on these folders using 1.4.9x. Only 2 computers are using BTSync and they run the Windows 64-bit version. They are on the same wireless network. Relay and tracker servers are turned off for each sync folder. I hadn't run BTSync in over a month. I upgraded BTSync to v1.4.110 on both computers. As part of the BTSync upgrade on System #1 (which had many new files), I selected the option to run BTSync after the program version upgrade. Once it was upgraded and loaded, I ran BTSync on System #2 (which I had already upgraded to the latest version). It than began to sync. Everything looked fine and appeared to run smoothly. But when I checked the files, in many cases, old versions overwote the new versions. I now have to sift through thousands of files to determine the damage BTSync caused and try to rectify as much of the damage as possible. UPDATE: I just had a full-time computer programmer verify all the above facts, and he concluded there is a serious problem with BitTorrent Sync, and that it definitely overwrote NEWER files with OLDER ones in multiple cases. This seems to be a huge problem.
  5. It would be nice if btsync would be able to copy the symbolic and hardlinks as they are, and not just as a normal file as it does now. If the source and the target of the links are in same share, then create the same link structure on all synced computers (or at least on desktop OS). If not, then do as now, sync as a normal file.
  6. As some may know, I'm developing a system (based on the Sync API) to distribute mp4 video files over computers inside a few schools. As BitTorrent's clients have a feature to allow playing video while still downloading (known as "streaming"), are there any plans to have this feature on Sync?
  7. I have two repeatable issues where Sync seems to think it should be copying files or touching files when it doesn't seem to need to... or maybe is should just be waiting a couple seconds to allow other tasks to finish before it tries to jump in. 1) If I copy files into a synced folder (for example adding a new folder of songs to an mp3 folder that syncs across computers in my house) as it is copying, sync will complain one by one that the files are locked by another program. I even put sync in "pause" and sync still continued to complain the files were locked even though it wasn't actually syncing anything at that time. Shouldn't pause actually stop sync from indexing or doing anything? 2) At work I have a synced folder on my work laptop (syncs back to the home computer) that I save a new document file into almost every day. Every time I save into that folder Sync complains that the file is locked by another program. That laptop is not connected to the internet most of the time I'm working on the file, so it can't sync anything at that time but it still complains. I understand it might be indexing the files in the folder, but why does it care if the file is locked since it can't do any syncing at that moment? Both of the times, Sync reports that the file being copied or being saved is locked by another program. It is quite annoying and Windows 10 notification panel gets hit with a report for the locked file(s). I'm not sure why sync is immediately acting on the files while another program is working on saving or copying into the synced folder. Perhaps it could just wait a little bit before acting on the new file(s). Or maybe sync doesn't need to complain about the files as the files will sync just fine once the files are finished being copied or the files is saved. Is there a way to turn off or not get notified about this? Thanks!
  8. I've installed resilio sync on a couple new devices and I'm seeing inconsistent and incorrect behavior. Each of the last four machines I set to Disconnect state when initializing them, but as soon as I committed the setting, resilio sync started downloading all shares, and not selective. This causes a massive disruption, as the system then slows down so much that it takes forever for me to change each of the 40 shares back to disconnected and delete all the accidental share additions. Is anyone else experiencing something similar? Any ideas on how to fix this?
  9. I have current version of Sync running on a Feral seedbox and on my home NAS (Asustor) through a R7000 router. Speeds will transfer in the neighborhood of 250 KB/s until I restart the Sync app on my NAS. Then I get 4-5 MB/s no problems, for a while, (not sure how long though.) I have tried to give the local address for the NAS priority "quality of service" on the router but have seen no improvement. Charter is my carrier, and I am not aware of them throttling, and the fact that it goes at faster speeds upon restarts makes me think it's not Charter... What do you think I can do to maintain the normal faster speeds? (Happy to give more details to try to troubleshoot this!) Thanks for any help, J
  10. I have a Seedboxes account with Resilio Sync setup. I Resilio to sync files between my seedbox and a computer. Let's say I have 100 files in the seedbox that is setup to sync, then Resilio Sync will start to download maybe 20 of those files at the same time to my local computer. For me that is inconvenient because I will have to wait for 20 files to finish before I can open one of them on my local computer. So basically what I am asking is, is it possible to make Resilio Sync download one file at at time instead of downloading multiple files at the same time?
  11. Hey there everyone, I've tried playing around with Sync Home (free) to synchronize my music folder on my PC to my phone. Previously, I have synced my music through MusicBee but it's getting very tedious with how long it takes and how regularly it fails. However, my attempts at syncing haven't allowed me to specify where on my Android phone I'd like to sync to, and sets to the default (/storage/emulated/0/Download/Sync/MP3). I have a 200GB SD card for this very purpose and want to make use of it, as my phone storage isn't big enough for all of my music. Is this a limitation of the free version, and if so, which version do I need to buy to get around it? Or am I just missing something altogether? Thanks for any help or feedback!
  12. Hello, i have a strange problem: I have to sync some files on a server with a remote co-worker. So i decided to use Resilio. The problem is that whenever he connects using the Shared Key R/W , some of the files in that folder disappear, and there's no log or anything Can you help me?
  13. I have one fast startup SSD disk, with less space and one larger slower disk. It would be great being able to sync both of these on different disks. At the moment, I can share a folder on the fast SSD to other computers, but it will appear on the default location. In the future, it would be a great feature just to right click on the folder and choose a new location for it. Think I will have to use 1TB Dropbox now for the SSD and use Resilio Sync for the big disk...
  14. I was facing this issue since few months. Frequently, All my resilio settings were lost and I used some really undesirable workarounds till now. Today I found a perfect solution which works everytime. The Setup: System: Centos 6.6 x86_64 wget https://download-cdn.resilio.com/stable/linux-x64/resilio-sync_x64.tar.gz cd /home/user/bin tar -xf ../resilio-sync_x64.tar.gz ./rslsync Running above commands, I could access the webUI and did all the settings (setting up username and password etc.). After 2 days I logged in to the same machine and ./bin/rslsync The service started. I accessed the webUI and for my surprise, I was asked the username, password and re-enter password which was asked 2 days ago, It looked like all the settings were lost. Same issue while using crontab. Solution: I noticed a .sync directory inside /home/user/bin/ Copied the directory inside the home directory cp -r /home/user/bin/.sync /home/user/bin Killed resilio sync and restarted it. Everything works fine now. Is it a bug? A NO from me. Reason: When you run the rslsync for the first time, The .sync directory which stores all the information about sync is created in the Current Working Directory. While running rslsync, You need to be in the directory which was your pwd while you first ran rslsync Let's say, You are running resilio for the very first time. rslsync binary is stored in /home/user/bin/ , And you did cd /home/Downloads /home/user/bin/rslsync resilio will start and .sync directory will be created in your pwd ie. /home/user/Downloads Next time, If you are in your home directory and you do /home/user/bin/rslsync Resilio will start but settings will be lost. But, cd /home/user/Downloads /home/user/bin/rslsync will work This is troublesome if you only have 1 resilio setup. So make sure you run rslsync in your home directory initially. On the other side, If you want to have multiple resilio setups on the same machine and that too with the same user, This "so called bug" is awesome. You can have multiple different shares with different credentials and different setups. Though only 1 will be running at a time. Hope this helped. Thanks
  15. When you set up a sync folder with Selective Sync ON, the entire directory shows up with folders containing placeholder files. This is great because you can search these directories (with Alfred for example) and then just sync the file you want to use. However, when you choose a folder and select "Remove from this device," the folder's contents and the folder itself turn into placeholders. Now you can no longer enter that folder and see what's inside, nor can you search it. This is really annoying. What I then tend to do is unsync the contents of each folder individually instead of unsyncing the folder. It would really be great if, when you unsync a folder, it preserves the folders and only replaces the files with placeholders.
  16. Hi I was syncing some large files from a host down to my external USB drive and It has stuck at indexing, It currently says: 98% - indexing It has been doing this for hours now I tried pausing and resuming did nothing then I tried disconnecting and removing the sync then deleting the sync folder on the HDD and then I set up the sync again to the same destination and stuck at ( 98% - indexing ) again. Files sizes vary but total 30GB. I looks like it is stuck on the last 2 files that have not started to transfer. Thanks for the reply.
  17. Two specific folders keeps showing infinitely: - folder Private: Progress "11% a few seconds" - 4.5Gb content, 26 645 files, 3 765 folders - folder Dev: Progress "1% a few seconds" - 10,71 Gb content, 388 047 files, 83 909 folders on Windows7 Pro, using Resilio Sync v2.5.6. Both folders has a lot files, some of them are changing frequently (like Firefox browser profile directory). The Dev 1% progress never changes, altough the status is a green checkmark.
  18. Hi, Is there a way to synchronize (up & down) a folder on a shared web host server ? I can't install any exe on server side . I would like users with an identified resilio sync key , share a web public site on their own computer with resilio sync home, then they don't have to use FTP to upload or download documents, plus they can get files uploaded from the server side. I found a freeware to sync a local folder with the website with FTP.... but it's a bit tricky. Any idea ? w°w
  19. How does the sync work over non-WiFi (3g,4g etc...) How does my phone discover changes on my PC without any central server? Is there an URL with my device key? How does this work?
  20. In the past i was able to create an adhoc wireless network on my windows 10 and 8 laptops, then connect an ipad or iPhone and do a wlan sync without internet. I can still ping my apple devices IP address from laptop (windows 10 pro x64 with most current public release and newest wifi drivers). I can also use other iOS programs and transfer between iOS and laptop, so i believe the adhoc network is still functioning fine. I have to do this as i am out of internet connection range at times and also i don't want to waste iPhone monthly bandwidth when i am in range. It never shows a peer also I have experimented with changing tracker and relay settings as well as checked windows firewall and see a tcp and udp entry for sync. Any help would be appreciated, it is behaving as if it is a firewall issue. When i tried as an experiment, 2 iOS devices and the laptop, no devices were syncing or seeing each other, so it may not be firewall. What settings are recomended? Or did this functionality go away with newer versions?
  21. I have a FreeNAS server that houses a bunch of directories I'm trying to sync. I had setup 3 shares and 2 of them are working fine while one has been in a Connecting state for 30 minutes. I'll let everyone know that I had just reset this current computer and have a TON of other downloads going on concurrently (OneDrive, Steam, Origin ...etc). Also, the folder that's having a problem is a few terabytes compared to 50-350 gigabytes for the other 2. Should I just be patient and wait for everything else to finish and let btsync do its thing? Origin server is FreeNAS 11 running the plugin and the client computer is Windows 10 (up to date) I can provide logs if needed.

    How do I use slective sync?

    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.

    Moving Sync to New PC

    I have a single seat PRO license and just got a new desktop computer. I have a folder on my old machine synced to a remote backup machine. I plan to use an external harddrive to move the complete folder from my old desktop to my new machine. Is there a best practices way to make this transfer without re-syncing all the files to the remote machine?
  24. I simply just want to, copy, paste or move a file / folder in Sync Mobile App. Either I'm missing a really easy one or none of these features are built into the mobile app?? I can't even simply move a file once it's uploaded on the mobile. Also having an issue that I can't even choose past 1 folder deep on our data base when uploading files via mobile. Anyone have this same issues? These are extremely basic operations. Pretty blown away I'm not seeing it anywhere. Would appreciate any help. I'm on a Google Pixel everything is up to date.
  25. Hi, I just started out using resilio and i'm super happy with it so far. I sync 2 big folders from my nas to my workstation and my Laptop unfortunately the sync stops at 99% and won't finsh at any of my devices. It seems like most of the data is there and also the changes appear across the plattforms but it never is "finished". Bestides some small naming issues that resillio changed there are no conflicts. My HW is a Synology DS416, Windows 10 Workstation and an old Macbook Pro. Is there a way to make sure all data gets synced correct? thanks in advance! best, Bernd.
