Hello everyone, New to BTS, this forum and Linux! I have BTSync up and running just fine with My Cloud EX2, iOS8 and Windows 8.1. Very nice tool! I've searched high and low for a solution to enable BTS on (restart) boot up for the WD My Cloud EX2 NAS device and cannot find one that will work. I've tried various solutions but ultimately the EX2 doesn't have the chkconfig or update-rc.d commands/modules. I'm running the latest BTS client and WD firmware on the EX2. uname -r - 3.2.40 uname -a - Linux Cloud 3.2.40 #3 Tue Jul 29 18:09:51 CST 2014 armv7l GNU/Linux Thanks for your time and any help you can provide!
I have been using BitTorrent Sync Version (1.3.106) on my WD MyCloud NAS for the last few months with no issues, until a few weeks ago when I inadvertantly updated my iOS Sync app to 1.4.71. Now I can no longer seem to back up my camera roll. It looks at my camera roll and estimates the size but then just stays in that state and never seems to back anything up. In the web UI for Btsync on the WD drive, it shows that the iOS app has connected, but on the iOS app it displays "0 devices connected". I assume this is because I need to update the BitTorrent Sync app on my WD MyCloud, but from the threads I read in this forum, it no longer can be installed using the ARM version? Is there a way to resolve this, or do I have to just give up and find another way to back up my camera roll? It seems there is no official support for WD drives (though WD does seems to have APIs for 3rd parties to build apps on top of for MyCloud). Any thoughts/advice?
My WD My Cloud was powered off the other day, and while I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the issue I'm having now, I figured I'd mention it. Suddenly, no folders display in the UI for the drive (IP Address:8888 in my browser), and when I attempt to add a new folder I get this popup: No matter how long I let it sit (originally under the thought that it was processing and would load the folders), nothing ever loads in the popup. Do I have to do something to refresh BitTorrent Sync? It's obviously installed on the drive otherwise I wouldn't be seeing that screen at all, but I'm not sure what would have happened to not only remove all of my shared folders but also to not allow me to add new folders.
To start, I'm on OS X Mavericks using a WD My Cloud 3TB drive connected to my router. I was able to install BitTorrent Sync with the help of RoyW's post here: http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/17214-help-installing-bt-sync-on-wd-mybook-live/ My issue now is setting up the proper directories to sync. When I add a folder in BTSync, I get this screen: So here, I would set the destination folder - which would need to be the folder on my My Cloud drive I want to sync TO (as the target folder). Of course, when I access BTSync through my My Cloud device and add a folder, I see this screen: Since this is through the My Cloud device, it only sees folders on the drive itself. My issue here is that I would be selecting the same folder twice. My workflow should work like this: [folder on desktop] ==syncs to==> [folder on my My Cloud] However, I seem to only be able to setup this workflow: [folder on My Cloud] ==syncs to==> [folder on desktop] If I set the destination folder to my desktop folder in BTSync (first screenshot), then add the My Cloud folder (second screenshot), it syncs beautifully from My Cloud to my desktop folder. However, that's the exact opposite of what I want, and it doesn't sync both ways (as in, if I add a file to my desktop folder, it will not send it to My Cloud; if I add a file to My Cloud, it will send it to my desktop). The software is great and easy to navigate, but I feel like this one hurdle is stopping me from using it for the purposes I need. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
