switched from an older btsync to resilio, wants to reindex everything

Recommended Posts


I've upgraded my older version btsync to the newest resilio sync. Now it writes "service files missing", and if i point out the folder which is at the same place as it was always, i get the message "the folder you selected is not associated with sync home, we will add...." and re index. I don't want a reindex, as it would take veeeery long time on that ARMHF CPU machine, as the folder is 1,2 terabytes size.

How can i avoid this?

You cannot. "Service files missing" error means that Sync does not associate the share with directory on the drive. Fixing it requires re-pointing the share to the directory. Sync creates new database and needs to re-index all the files.
