Is Resilio Sync unsuitable if not all devices are online all the time?

Recommended Posts

I'm periodically getting "Sync encountered some errors while synchronizing your files", "Cannot download n files" (where n is a number), "These files cannot be downloaded as there are no source peers online for too long time."

Isn't this a normal condition which Sync ought to handle without throwing up an error? It makes it seem that Sync is unsuitable for any kind of portable device which may not be connected all the time.

In any case, after comparing all online peers (using another program,) there aren't any unsync'd files anyway, which is thoroughly confusing.

If the files are not avaialble for downloading Sync detects it the error occurs. It will disappear only when the peer back online and Sync  finish the folder synchronization.
