Mobile Backup trying to push files back to mobile

Recommended Posts

I am backing up my Windows Phone pictures using Bittorrent Sync, and when it (finally) connects to my Mac it usually works fine. But I can never get the sync to fully finish as BT Sync on my Mac says it is trying to copy "809 files to" my Windows Phone. Which is strange, given that my Mac got a read-only link from the mobile device ... 

Something seems fishy here :-/

fatso83, probably some files were modified on the Mac by another application. So Sync tries to upload those files to other peers. But it cannot do that becase have only RO permissions. You can right-click on the folder, choose "Preferences" and activate "Overwrite any changed files" option. Then Sync will redownload all modified files from the Windows Phone.
