Why Lots Of .part Files?

Recommended Posts

I use youtube-dl to download video from YouTube and sync the videos between my Synology and Android phone.


The problem is, there are a lot of ????????.part files shown in the Android BT Sync client folder. I assume those .part files are temp file created by youtube-dl. 


Synology: 2.0.93-1

Android: 2.2.2 (376)

What you would have to do is on the machine where you download the files add the temporary file extension that is being used by your download application to the .SyncIgnore file.


There is a help article on how to do that on


This is no bug of Sync; it does exactly what it's supposed to do - Sync files. You just have not configured it correctly for your needs :P
