Share Folder With Android Always Ends Up With With Read/write Permissions


Recommended Posts



I have the pro version of Bittorrent Sync and I guess to have found a bug.


I have two installations, one with my own identity and another with a test identity. 


Now the test:


1) Create a folder with some data to sync on the personal identity

2) Share the folder with the Android Device with the test identity and choose "Read Only"

3) Connect to the folder with the test identity

4) First, the granted permissions suddenly change to Read/Write and second, they are only changeable to Owner and Read/Write but not to Read only


This can be reproduced at least on my fresh installation (the 3rd installation at least, due to other problems and no reaction from the BT-Team: What do I pay for? They say support within 24 hours!!). 

The rights can not be changed from neither of my 3 devices to read only for the test identity.


On the other hand: If I share the folder from my laptop, the permissions can be changed in all variations and the seem to work.
