Resilio Sync locking up Windows explorer


Recommended Posts

I finally upgraded my little AWS Cloud sync server to Resilio Sync because it wasn't properly syncing with the client.

However I seem to have an issue setting up a sync system with the new client - abut two out of three times when I try to manually add a folder (e.g.  Options > Manual Connections > Add the key > Select a Folder), when it gets to the Select a Folder portion it hangs, (not responding).

Once it's done that, Resilio Sync is done talking about it - killing and reopening either windows explorer or Resilio Sync itself doesn't fix what's broken, I have to completely restart Windows, and I can almost never add two folders at a time - the second one will break it again. Reinstalling Resilio Sync also has no effect on this.

Obviously I'm not having any such issue with other programs et al. Nor am I having issues on linux. At some point I did manage to convince myself that it seems to be a problem with opening in the 'This PC' Folder, but I honestly don't recall what convinced me of that at the time.

Any assistance you might render,

Thank you,
