  1. Hi, I've been reading up on several threads / FAQs re the .syncignore file created in the root of a sync-folder. Running 2 windows7 machines, btsync 1.1.82 For this sync, the root is c:\Users\Christiane Both machines have just the one line in their .syncignore : AppDataI can see syncing going on for folders AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\CookiesAppData\Roaming\BitTorrent SyncWhy?
  2. Please help me understand what I'm doing wrong. I've got a folder E:\Projects that I'd like to sync between 2 computers. I have 3 subfolders I'd like to have ignored (folder1, folder2, and the secific subfolders inside of them) In windows 7, I open notepad++ and change encoding to UTF-8. Save the file as .SyncIgnore in E:\Projects. I then add 3 lines to .syncignore file: \folder1\sf1 \folder1\sf2 \folder2\sf1 I save this, then start Sync application. I generate a key, and add E:\Projects to shared folders. When I look in the History tab, I see that files from the ignored paths are being adde
  3. so I have a folder structure as follows /opt | |customer_home| |-170129| |--reports/ |--www/ |--logs/however under customer home there are about 50,000 account id's. My intent is to ignore everything under logs and reports but sync /www I have placed my .SyncIgnore file at the root of my sync ( /opt/customer_home/.SyncIgnore ) with the following /*/logs/*/reports*.tgz*.tar*.cdr.json*.cdr.csv*.txt.tgz*.tar.gz*.pdf*.exe*.dmg*.zipbut it is still syncing files under logs and reports. I am using cl
  4. Hello. I am testing BitTorrent Sync and for the most part i'm very impressed, but i have run into a problem that i just want to get som verification on. On Computer A I have shared a folder and copied a Read Only key from that folder. On Computer B i have created a .sync/SyncIgnore list in the folder i intend to sync to. Then i have added the Read Only key in the Sync App and chosen the folder with the SyncIgnore-list in. The first time the sync runs, the SyncIgnore file is working and it only syncs the files and folders i want. But if i quit the application, and then launch it again
  5. Another wishlist item (consider a uservoice voting tool for stuff like this?) (not the wish): GUI/Web access to manage .SyncIgnore, and have btsync either monitor that file and update its behavior or enable a re-read of it via the gui/web.
  6. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has found a way to implement something like Dropbox's selective sync? Here's the scenario I'd like to have: I'd like a way to have a bunch of folders and files on one machine and selectively sync any one (or combination) of files and folders to another, on demand. e.g., Machine 1 | ----Folder A | ---- Subfolder 1 | ---- File A ---- File B ---- File C ---- File D ...only sync.. Machine 2 | --- Subfolder 1
  7. Good evening, here is my simple question: is it possible to write in SyncIgnore a rule that excludes contents basing on their creation or modification date? I've a server (RasPi) with a folder containing a big number of files, I want to set up a bidirectional sync of this folder with one device (a MacBook Pro), and also a simple unidirectional push to another device (an iPad). On this latest device I want to have only the files created or changed in the last X days, so that if I delete from the iPad one of this files on the X+1 day I want to keep it on the server and don't want btsync to r
  8. I have a one-way sync set up between (some folders of) a development system and a NAS. I expect every change I make in the folders to be synched to the NAS. Strange things happen when I make changes in dot-folders (e.g., .git). It seems that these changes are not immedeately synched, but sometime later when btsync performs its 10-minute scan. Sometimes they are not synched at all. The .SyncIgnore is identical on the development system and the NAS and doesn't exclude dot-folders: *~ .\#* \#*\# This is very puzzling... Any idea what I'm overlooking?
  9. I'm trying to use BitTorrent Sync to backup my Mac's "user" folder (/Users/Chris) to my PC and Linux server. (So my documents, photos, etc.) But I want to ignore certain things, like the Library folder, Desktop folder, and Movies folder. Here's what I've tried: A .SyncIgnore file directly in /Users/Chris. I've tried the following contents: Attempt 1: Library DesktopMovies Attempt 2:Library* Desktop*Movies* Attempt 3: ~/Library* ~/Desktop* ~/Movies* To my frustration, none of these attempts have stopped these 3 folders from syncing. I've tried restarting BitTorrent Sync each time after ea
  10. Hey, maybe I don't have the Syntax right, or somehow or other I am missing something on how to use .SyncIgnore Trying to sync my development web server (with static pages) between work laptop and home desktop. I tried two methods: creating a .SyncIgnore file with UTF-8 encoding and putting the one file I need to ignore in there : # Files to Ignore for this directoryindex.phpOtherwise I tried appending it to the .SyncIgnore file that already existed that looks like so: # .SyncIgnore is a UTF-8 encoded .txt file that helps you specify single files, paths and rules # for ignoring during the
  11. Greetings Sync Monkeys, I absolutely LOVE BTsync - great job so far. I created this user to participate in the forum so I can tell you about a problem I have spent a full day on trying to resolve and can not: I am a media creator and have my sound libraries on a 2TB drive. I want to sync these libraries to my laptop so I can easily create music using these libraries on the road. Given the massive size and somewhat dynamic nature of these libraries (I constantly update my sounds), BTsync is PERFECT for what I need. I set up BTsync to syncronize my S: drive on my workstation to my S: drive
  12. I have two peers that I want to keep in sync with one another for software development, while ignoring certain folders. I set up my .SyncIgnore file, and it works initially, but does not apply after any files are updated. Example procedure: Remove all Synced directories on both peers. Delete .SyncArchive on both peers. Restart BT Sync on both peers for good measure.Create .SyncIgnore file at desired Sync root directory on both peers.Add folder to BT Sync on peer 1. .SyncIgnore works fine for now. I see the desired number of files.Change or add files in an ignored BT Sync folder. .SyncIgnor
  13. I wish to sync my Photos and Lightroom Catalog files. The problem is Lightroom creates a cache directory along-side of the Catalog. So my directory looks like: C:\Media\Catalogs\MyCatalog.lrcat C:\Media\Catalogs\MyCatalog Previews.lrdata\* C:\Media\Pictures\20131013\* C:\Media\Pictures\20131014\* C:\Media\Pictures\20131015\*etc. I have a BTSync directory at C:\Media\Catalogs, and all I want to sync are the *.lrcat files. I have been trying to ignore the *.lrdata directory using the .SyncIgnore file, but I have been unsuccessful. After reading online, and performing experiments, I realize tha
  14. Do syncignore commands have to be entered on all the machines syncing or is just one sufficient. I don't want to sync any temp files so do I need to put the commands only on my server in the .syncignore file these are the lines I added ~* *.bak *.tmp or do I need to do this on my offsite backup machine as well? Question #2 on my server I have a folder called d:\files\please use for temp storage\ and I don't want to sync anything put in this folder. Could someone give me the "exact" command I need to put in my .syncignore file to achieve this. is there any problem with spaces in names? Thank
  15. I have development folders I'm trying to sync and ignore directories that match a string. For this: /workspace/foo/bar/baz /workspace/buzz/bar/cat_pics Can I do *bar* in .SyncIgnore and have it ignore all the files and directories below bar in both the foo and buzz directories? Thanks!
