Bittorrent Sync 1.4 Crashing On Os X 10.9.4


Recommended Posts

Was trying to add a new folder today and the popup stating a new version was available came up. Trying to let it download the update resulted in it crashing before the download completed. I deleted the app from my machine and then just went to the website to download 1.4. Now it opens briefly, but within a couple seconds of the window appearing it crashes.

  Since I'm not able to get into the app to turn on debug logging I don't have a log to share. Just wanted to report the problem.

I am seeing the same issue, from the console:

Word from BTSync support is that v1.4+ requires OS X 10.8 & above.

However, I've had luck minimizing random crashes by freeing up hard drive space, eliminating shares that are also shared via SMB / CIFS, and not overloading the GUI with requests.  It seems mostly stable unless I do something that is likely to stress the memory system.
