Sync stuck with com.apple.ResourceFork

Recommended Posts

Sync (MacOS) has been trying to sync two com.apple.ResourceFork files for weeks. It's stuck at 64 %, sync is working fine otherwise, i.e., other files are still getting sync.

What can I do with regard to these com.apple.ResourceFork files?

The log doesn't show an error message.

Hey!  Yeah, we ran into this issue too.

The solution was to edit the StreamsList file in the problem directory, to disable resource forks [metadata that isn't likely needed outside of the origin OS] from syncing.

The fix:

In Terminal, open with VIM/Nano:  <Problem_Folder>/.sync/StreamsList  --> disable resource forks: add a # at the start of the com.apple.ResourceFork line --> write buffer/save --> Exit --> restart the Resilio service or reboot

[if none of this made sense, let me know and I can try to explain step-by-step]
