Bt Sync Destroys Files

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I love BT Sync. Best thing since soap on a roap.

 

But with Firefox, whenever I download a executable file it is invalid when finished. It usually works if  pause BT Sync while downloading. But this last time I downloaded Firefox installation to bring to work (offline installations only) and I did it about ten times.

I closed the BT Sync (paused but still interfering?) applikation and finally I got my files.

 

Check for file locks or wait for untouched files? Needs attention.

 

Still love pretty much love it. For mostly static content.

 

Regards

I tried to reproduce it in my lab without success. I wonder if you can provide some debugging information? I'll need debug log from the peer that gets file downloaded to sync folder by firefox and any another peer online. Also, I'll need ProcessMonitor log collected at the same time from machine with Firefox.

 

Thanks!

Thx, I will try to provide you with the information needed. Was about to try the latest beta but the file was corrupted when I tried to install it ...

I have four peers and one of them is a Synology NAS, the rest is WIndows 7.

 

And FYI, I downloaded ProcessMonitor and a little while before the, the latest Tomcat version. Both files are 0kb ...

 

BTS 1.4.103


Btw, using the extension Download Status Bar for downloads, perhaps that is the problem.

Is the corrupted file 0 bytes? If so, then it might be the same problem I'm having. For instance, saving an open PDF file in Firefox to a syned folder (right click - save as). The file saves allright, but is then turned into a 0 byte file by BTSync. The original, in-tact file is moved to the .sync/Archive folder.

 

I've sent in logs of it occuring to the support email (#18530).
