BitTorrent Sync on my Synology NAS sync's the folders I have connected just fine but recently I have been unable to login to the user interface when I access the web interface of my synology diskstation.  I have tried to ssh in to check the config file but the ssh program tells me "unknown user btsync"


Anyone know how I can get access to my BTSnyc user interface?

There is no "btsync" user in official package on Synology (though it was in unofficial SynoCommunity package). Sync runs under Admin account, so follow instruction below:


1. Shut down Sync using Synology webui

2. Login as "admin" via SSH

3. Find Sync's storage folder and delete settings.dat and settings.dat old (it should be somewhere in /volume1/@appstore/bittorrentsync/var/). Note that all app global settings will reset, but all folders and their folder settings will stay

4. Run Sync using Synology webui
