Windows: 200,000+ files, hangs, leaves .!sync files, possible data loss

Recommended Posts

Using v1.0.134, and syncing around 30 folders containing a total of 200,000 files my BT Sync has started to hang. It does it every time now. Memory usage peaks at startup (1.2GB-1.5GB) then settles down to 800-900MB.

I run BT Sync on one machine using read-only keys from client machines each having a few shares. Total about 10 machines, 30 shares.

Force-closing the hung app has led to some of my peers' data files being renamed to .!sync and I believe in one case it even deleted one of my Quickbooks files. I am 99% certain it was BT Sync. Some of the other QB files had the .!sync as well.

I tried to do a full dump using Process Explorer, but gave up after waiting over an hour for it. I have never done a full dump before, is that fairly normal for a process using a gig of ram? Willing to test my setup in any way you want me to for bug reporting. If someone can tell me if that is normal I will try again.

10 clients, mostly Server 2008 R2 servers, some Windows 7 64-bit with ~3 shares each, 200,000 files

1 "server", Server 2008 R2, using client shares in read-only mode

~2TB of data in total

There are known issues with BitTorrent Sync handling more than 100,000 files, which the developers are aware of, and are working on improving for the next update - please see this post

The same is true of BitTorrent Sync's current high CPU/Memory usage - please see the unofficial FAQ for more information
