Android stops syncing, requires phone restart to fix.

Same here, no SD cards involved.

We actively remove everything from Resilio Sync (where did the nested folders get lost?)

I look back with a crying eye.

Hi @Maniac but did you keep the SD card in the phone? Try removing the SD card from the phone just to eliminate it completely. If sync still hangs then we know for sure its NOT the SD card.

Update as promised,

aaaand....

Back to square one. Didn't last a week. So new SD Card made no difference.

Symptoms:

1. Notice that some files on another client haven't synced when they've had a day or so to do so.

2. Go to phone and see that sync has no peers for any sync folders when clearly there should be.

3. Go to settings> exit. Sync displays shutdown spinning wheel (forever. Tested 24hrs at least) until the app is force closed or the phone is restarted.

As you were,

Andy.

If its not actually syncing outside of the UI (as in not a UI update problem)... it could even be the device killing the app and the way RS handles it doesn't cope or maybe an internal app problem.

Suppose, you or RS devs really need to look through Android debug log and really see why its not working. You might be able to do it without doing that but you might not after spending a lot of time trying.

I don't really recommend relying on RS Android. I used it for backups to Android and RS was a total fail for that. Its disappointing to me as it would be a nice way to have encrypted backups at all times. I so really want auto backups to mobile device.

So I realized I can reproduce this on demand, as I was trying to get something to sync this morning. My work's wifi blocks resilio sync's data. If I connect to it, syncing obviously stops working; but when I disconnect it never starts working again. I have to force stop the app and restart it to get it to find peers and sync data again.
