Problem With Add_Folder

Recommended Posts

We use the add_Folder api call. With bittorrent Version 1.3.109  I can add a Folder with existing files for sync with bittorrent. With Version 1.4.75 I got the Response:



http://api: ... /api?method=add_Folder&dir=c:\start


{ "error": 105, "message": "Zielordner ist nicht leer. Trotzdem hinzufügen?" }


Can anyone give me a tip? I want to sync I Folder with existing files. With the Desktop Client, there ist no Problem.

This is the consequence of an undocumented SyncAPI change. See Issue #154. I also discovered, that the (also) undocumented parameter force=1 solves the problem.


curl -u admin:admin 'http://localhost:8888/api?method=add_folder&dir=/mnt/btsync/test1&secret=ASFODAMD23QUM2H65QVTB6GZRVAOSRTN7'{ "error": 105, "message": "Destination folder is not empty.  Add anyway?" }


After adding force=1


curl -u admin:admin 'http://localhost:8888/api?method=add_folder&dir=/mnt/btsync/test1&secret=ASFODAMD23QUM2H65QVTB6GZRVAOSRTN7&force=1'{ "error": 0 }
