Sync Deleted Everything In A Synced Folder


Recommended Posts

I've got an Android phone whose pictures are synced to my desktops. Today I noticed that for whatever reason the entire directory was cleared out, on every machine. Luckily the files were still in my desktop's .SyncTrash. History confirms that the Android version deleted everything at 1:50 PM on Wednesday, and the desktops followed suit.

 

I'm very disturbed by this, because it's not the first time BT Sync has happily deleted all synced copies of a file. A few weeks ago I uploaded a large file to my desktop in order to transfer it to the same directory on my phone. BT Sync finished uploading it (as I watched), and then froze the phone. I waited 20 minutes before doing a hard reboot, at which point Sync replaced that file with a 0 B version of itself on every machine.

 

Unfortunately, I had debug logging turned off. It's on now and I extended my SyncArchive time to a year, but I'm disturbed nonetheless.
