I see this in my sync.log file on my Linux machine and looks like it has to do with a .!sync file not finishing syncing. Any ideas what that log entry means? Blocking sounds like no syncing possible between that particular client, but what's going on and why?

I'm seeing the same thing in my sync.log file.  I have a ~54GB sync that hasn't gone beyond 2.3GB over three weeks.  It seems like it's stuck.

 

The sync is of a home dir on a Windows machine.  It's synching read-only to a backup on a linux machine.

 

On the linux machine I see that error idef1x mentions.  It seems like it's related to a single file repeatedly failing to pass the hash check.  This error repeats constantly.  It seems like no other files for this sync will transfer due to this error.

I guess I'll try excluding that file on the source and see if things start working

I have seen a lot of these bans on my logs, usually following a file that was in use so wasn't able to be synced. Wish the SW was clever enough to try x times and then wait for say 10 minutes and then try once every 10 minutes until the file is sucessfully synced.

I have this problem all of the time. For example if I modify a bunch of metadata in MP3 files and they have to be re-synced I will get this on a bunch of random ones. The only solution I have found is to stop both clients, manually copy the file, delete the *.SyncPart and *.!sync files in the destination folder, and restart syncing. I usually pause the client on my macbook before I do the batch mods and resume it when I'm done so I don't think it is an issue with it trying to pick open files.
