  1. Hi, I am trying out Resilio Sync I looked at the toppic: "Files deleted on desktop won't delete on Android device", as I am having the similar problem. My folders are set as "read & write" on Android -from there I started the sync, sent links to my PC, and synced. However - my folders are set as "copy only" ON my PC. And the option ON PC is greyed out - I can't change it. So - when I delete synced files on my PC - the files on the phone are not deleted. Question: can a free version Sync files or just copy from one device to the other? If yes - how can I change the option? Is there a bug at my installation of Sync? Thanks, cheers, Nika
  2. Is there any way in Windows OS to make BT Sync show pop-up notifications once any files get synchronized? I see a "show notifications" option in the preference, but I do not see any notification regardless of whether the option is checked or unchecked. I have BT Sync installed on three machines, one with Windows 7 and two with Windows 10, and I'm having the same issue on all of them.
  3. New user here, finally migrating away from other solutions. I like to store alot of portable apps and files in my sync folders. I also like to create shortcuts that point to them; usually in a folder located in the root of the sync folder. The sync folder location varies, depending on the machine I have installed, so shortcuts don't usually work very well. To get round it I manually create an environment variable that allows the s/cuts work, eg %resilio%\programs\name.exe rather than a hardcode path. Would it be possible to sync client to create this variable? I don't think it would be programmatically difficult and I think it would be very useful. Thanks
  4. Since upgrading to v1.4.x (now using the latest v1.4.82) I have regularly the problem that I cannot save Office documents that are in a folder managed by BTSync. If I exit BTSync and try to save the Office document again (Word or Excel) it works flawlessly. So somehow it seems that BTSync is keeping a lock on the file/folder which prevents Office from saving the document.
  5. I no longer have the ability to right click on a folder and select sync to this device. I also no longer have the opton to "Remove from device" either. They do show up as having peers in the software. Am I doing something wrong?
  6. Hey guys, I'm currently on version 2.5.13 (1301) and got auto-update off. When I search for updates manually it finds version 2.6. Whenever I try to install it, this message appears: "The update of Resilio Sync failed. Error: The requested process cannot be completed because the specified process is not a GUI process." I tried multiple times and this always happens. Does anybody know how to fix it? Thanks, David
  7. Hello, Does Sync have Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) support in Windows? Long story short, I'm researching a use-case scenario for one of my nonprofit business clients, and Sync for Workgroups looks promising. Users are prone to working on files and leaving them open for the entire day, then shutting down their PCs, leaving no time for Sync to do its job if VSS isn't available. I use Sync Free, but can't remember if it does or doesn't have VSS. I know that pre-2.0 versions didn't because I remember seeing a locked file error during a sync once. Searching the website and Google doesn't state this explicitly either. If it's not supported, will it be in the future? Mods, please feel free to move this topic to Feature Requests if this is the case. Cheers, Hann
  8. Trying to get the context menu options to appear on Windows 10 for Resilio Sync. I have followed this article regarding icons and context menu for Windows and followed it exactly. I restarted Windows Explorer, attempted to delete the ShellExtensions (they did not delete), I added the keys using Command Prompt in Admin mode, the keys were successfully added, I restarted Windows Explorer again. I also checked the REG keys for LUA and it was enabled to 1. I then promptly contacted support again (still no word back) At this point I am at a loss because I completed this exact configuration on my PC and all options are there, however on my client's PC this doesn't seem to work. Any of you face similar issues and if so, what did you do to get the Sync options (Sync, Remove from Device, Remove all from device) showing in your File Explorer. ShellExtCM.log
  9. Right now, when I let Sync start itself on system startup, it shows the Sync window, which I have to close every single time. It would be nice to have an option which would let me have Sync start up minimized to the system tray. Many applications have this feature, but as far as I can tell, Sync lacks this. Thanks!
  10. Does resilio support a silent install as service? It seems not to: Resilio installs in "c:\ProgramData\Resilio Sync Service" if installed as service. That's fine, but I'm missing a auto-update ability, which would be possible to script if it supported silent install. If installing without service it install in "c:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync". Now that's a mess. The install must be elevated it seems, because if I run silent install below then it prompts for elevation, and does not install without elevation. It is registered as installed in windows programs and features, but is installed under the home-dir that I happened to run it under. If a future update is running as say Administrator rather than my elevated prompt I suspect I wont like the result. I tried using choco to install resilio-sync-home but ran into these problems, which seems to find their root cause in resilio installing as a program in windows requiring elevated prompt but not installing in the program files location.
  11. I want to achieve the following, I have a desktop and a laptop and a Netgear ReadyNas device. I want to sync the My Documents across the laptop and desktop via the Nas i.e. from the desktop to the Nas then from the nas to the laptop and vice versa. I have the latest versions of Resilio sync on all devices. What folder do I add on the Nas as the intermediate folder? When I try an add the My Documents on either the desktop or laptop I get a message saying you don't have permission to write to this folder. I'm not sure I understand the setup really. I want to go via the Nas because that is always on whereas the desktop or laptop may not necessarily be powered on together. Regards Pete
  12. 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!
  13. My primary objective is simple: I want to set up a bidirectional sync between one existing folder and it's subfolders on my Android phone with a folder on my PC. I can't find any way to select the folder on the Android side, nor can I find a way to link the phone and the PC. If the free version can't do this what in the world can it do?
  14. Hi, Some files are not synchronized between Mac and Windows. They all contain a dot at the end of the folder name. For example : /folder/folder./folder/file.txt Some files are unreadable. They contain a space at the end of their their folder name or a dot at the end of their file name. For example : /folder/folder/file. Or : /folder/folder /file.txt Thank you
  15. I'm having a problem on one specific Windows 7 machine with the tray icon constantly spinning. This is on version 2.0.120. I will retrace my steps. 1. Got a new computer with Win7 pre-installed with some generic user name with Admin privileges. 2. Instead of making a new account, I changed the name of the generic account and quickly found out that this doesn't change the name of the folder in \Users. 3. Followed some instructions online to change the folder name and folder name in registry while logged in to a temporary administrator account. 4. This broke sync and gave me errors on every single folder. I don't even remember what the error was now. I didn't document it. 5. Uninstalled and re-installed bittorrent sync and it fixed the problem (although, it created an extra instance of this computer in the lists on all my other devices that can't be deleted). 6. Sometimes I saw the tray icon constantly spinning even when there was no activity. Now, a couple of days later, it's constantly spinning with no activity. 7. Tried disconnecting and reconnecting every single folder. This did NOT fix the constantly spinning icon.
  16. I'm thinking of downloading Resilio Sync, but I have a few questions first. Basically, what I'd like to be able to do is use Resilio Sync to keep my local My Documents folder synced with either a Cryptomator or Veracrypt vault stored in my local cloud folder (be it for Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.). In more detail, what I'd like to do is drag copies of individual files and file folders that I'd like to keep backed up into my Cryptomator/Veracrypt vault and have any changes I make to the local version of those files synced with the copies stored in the vault. I don't want to work directly out of Cryptomator or Veracrypt, I still want to be able to work with my files locally. I want all of this to be done automatically for me - I've heard that some sync tools have the ability to periodically unlock your Cryptomator or Veracrypt vaults in order to sync changes between the files inside the vault and the local copies of those files. I'm wondering if Resilio Sync has this capability. If Resilio Sync can do what I just described, I'd also like to know how Resilio Sync functions with blocked permissions. I really don't like how Resilio Sync is closed-source, but I'd still like to try it out because I've heard its so user friendly and well maintained compared to most of the competition. When I want to use closed-source software but don't feel entirely comfortable with the privacy implications though, I'll sometimes set up a firewall rule to block outbound connections for that software. If I do this with Resilio Sync, will it still function properly, considering that I'm looking to sync between files and folders technically stored on the same machine? I can't imagine why Resilio Sync would need to be able to ping home if all the syncing I'm doing is done on the same machine. Also, I've heard some talk of Resilio Sync having issues with randomly deleting files. Are these claims unfounded? If not, are the deleted files simply moved to the recycle bin? I just got a little nervous reading about this. Does it sound like Resilio Sync is a good fit for my needs? Thanks for any help.
  17. I installed resilio-sync 2.5.6-1 on a new machine running Debian 9 and the inital sync with a folder does not finish and the resilio process consumes 100% CPU continuously. In the log on the debian machine I see the following error lines over and over for various files: [20170728 10:37:43.179] FC[8022]: Max count of remote files processing achieved. Requeueing VerifyFileSignatureMessage job. [20170728 10:37:43.179] FC[8022]: Failed to get node for parent(Docs/ilogs/HTL Villach/WM6SDK/Samples/Samples/Common/CPP/Win32/CustomForm/EMSCustomForm) of file Docs/ilogs/HTL Villach/WM6SDK/Samples/Samples/Common/CPP/Win32/CustomForm/EMSCustomForm/consts.h The rslsync process on the Debian machine tries to download these files from a Windows 7 machine running Resilio Sync 2.5.6 (1043). The files are available under this subpath on the windows machine and there are no errors to see in the logs of the Resilio process on the windows machine. Maybe it's an issue with the filepath beeing to long? As said already, resilio on the linux machine spins with 100% CPU usage and does not complete and there is no progress but thousands of error log files beeing written. Please help me in resolving this issue!
  18. 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.
  19. Hi, I set working_threads_count to 1 and Resilio is still using all cores. I am on Windows 10, any idea? Any other way to limit Resilio CPU usage? Also anyway to disable reindexing on starup or at least delay it 10 minutes? Thanks
  20. So I'm working in a small company that has a few employees, we have lots of images, photoshop documents, and illustrator files. All of which need some sort of tags to make things easily searchable, and make it easy to collaborate. We use Mac's and PC's. I haven't seen any Digital Asset Managers I like, and I don't want to place my bets on a software company that goes broke, so I'd rather just use Sync and built in OS file explorers. I plan on using the Mac's and Finder as the main way to access, organize and tag files. I know windows cannot see macOS tags, but does windows pass along tags, and would Sync properly pass these along? So if a file is synced from a mac to a PC, then back to a mac again, would the tags be retained? Is this a crazy way to do things or should I just find a proper Asset Manager?
  21. Issue summary : installer rejects account credentials. Platform : Windows 10 Pro 64 bits (build 10586.839). Details : choosing 'Install Resilio Sync as a Windows service' triggers the 'Configer Resilio Sync Service' prompt. Valid credentials are rejected.
  22. So When I try to setup in win7 resilio it doesn't work. It remains blocked on process. I setup in safe mode with only some services on and all goes well. The I start after setup and it doesn't run but when I try in safe mode all is OK! Where is the problem?
  23. Update: Never mind, i figured it out. I just deleted the folder i was trying to select as the target and re-created it from the PI and it worked fine. Must have been some weird permissions thing with mapping an NFS share from a windows server to a Linux client or something sync didn't like about it OK, so I'm having issues getting sync to write into a mounted NFS share on Linux. first some background: there are 3 machines involved. 2 windows servers (one is 2016, the other 2008) 1 Raspberry PI The Server 2016 server is a host on my network and is my main file server and database server The Raspberry PI is a host on my network in the DMZ and is the one running sync The Server 2008 server is a VPS that has files i want to back up from semi-regularly and is also running sync my issue is that if i expose an NFS share on the Server 2016 box, then mount it on the Pi, i can write to said share with any user (even running sudo -u nobody touch /mnt/VPS-backup/test.text works absolutly fine), however sync reports that i don't have permissions to write to said folder when i try to add a manual connection. So I'm wondering, is this kind of thing not possible with sync (ignoring the obvious issue that if sync starts and the NFS share isn't mounted, it may just assume the folder is empty and sync the VPS server accordingly, which is fine because a script copy's the files to be backed up into a temporary folder which is synced) or am i missing something?
  24. OK, so I recently noticed that my files weren't being synced, so I went to check in the desktop app to see what the deal was (I didn't upgrade to Resilio Sync yet). Turns out, Sync wasn't running and the shortcut I had in the start menu wasn't working either. I went and downloaded Resilio Sync, but that didn't install correctly either. I went into the appdata folder for it and only found debug.txt and sync.log. The debug.txt only contains the following: "FFFFFFFF0" and the contents of sync.log are as follows: platform: Windows workstation 10.0 amd64 version: [2016-10-29 11:20:09] ZIP: Can't locate [version] in zip, error -100. [11:23:15.029] Debug log mask has been set to FFFFFFFF [11:23:15.029] Features mask has been set to 0 [2016-10-29 11:23:15] ZIP: Can't locate [version] in zip, error -100. The only recent change that I think could have an effect was that I recently installed Malwarebytes for a random bit of malware that I found.
  25. Hello, I plan to reinstall windows. After that I'd like to restore my "profile", so I would have all folders already in GetSync loaded with same settings. I've found topic about same question, but when I've checked this folder it has just one file with 0 bytes size
