Can I move a portable HD with selective sync turned on to a new Mac?

Recommended Posts

Right now I have a portable HD on my old Mac that Resilio sync's my pictures too in "selective sync" format.  There are thousands of folders and only some are sync'd.  

I bought a new Mac.  Is there a way to migrate all the settings I have on my old Mac to my new Mac in regards to the selective sync folder selection?  I don't want to go through thousands of folders if there is already an index file or config file that exists that I can just transfer... 

Anyone know how to do that?

It looks like it IS working... sort of.  New items sync, but it says I'm missing ONE file and is stuck at 98% for most of the day now.   I created a new folder and put some files in there and it DOES seem to sync both ways which I thought it wasn't last night.  Perhaps I was impatient?  

BUT, All five other library locations say they are trying to send this ONE picture to my new laptop, but it just hangs there... I have the filename, but there are dozens of files with the same name scattered about in the 2+TB of pictures.  How do I reindex or fix this?

On my primary server (Alpha) I make all my folder changes, etc.  That server says that it has some 400K files to upload to Varmint too - and I'm not sure why that's hung up - but it's been that way for ages.  I've run beyond compare (program) on the two servers to compare files and they are 100% in sync, so not sure what I can do to rectify the bugs here... 

Any ideas?

Well it finally gave me an error on my laptop - claiming I'm out of space and that's why the file won't download...?  I have 500gb out of 2TB free on this SSD... where is it getting the idea I'm out of space?

@gleep52 it would be easier to understand why it happens if you gather logs from both peers

Meanwhile you can put attached config to ~/Library/Application Support/Resilio Sync and you will get rid of out of space warning sync.conf

I just tried to send in some logs from my laptop and will send the logs from my main server in a bit.  However I get the error "Failed to send feedback":

The conf file seems to have prevented the low disk space warning as I haven't seen that yet today.  However, this one file persists to eat up cpu cycles since it's constantly trying to download the file I guess.  

 

Can I manually attach some log files or such to this post?  Or is there private info in there?

Thanks again.

I am getting this error in my logs repeatedly:

the DSC_3558.JPG file is the one in question.  However lightroom creates this "Tempparent" folder and that gets erased after it's done importing pictures... That folder doesn't actually exist on any of my five other sites (I checked them all) so I'm not sure how to "ignore" this error as it never pops up with that option (to ignore).
