Files moved/created on smartphone not synchronized to WDNAS

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to always have synchronized a folder between my NAS and my smartphone. I usually do any kind of operations with files and folders on both devices. I don't need a cloud, but just what Resilio is supposed to be. So I’m using MyCloud with BitTorrent (synchronizing a folder in an ext4 filesystem) and a Samsung S7 with Resilio Sync (synchronizing a folder in an exFAT filesystem on a mSD card). Apparently, all is working fine … but when I pay attention, is not working exactly as it should. I can create/delete/move folders in both devices (smartphone and WDNAS) and changes are coherent and fast. However, when I move files on smartphone, those files, instead of being moved, appears like same files but with “.bts” extension and 0 bytes in my WDNAS and if I create a file o copy a new file to the shared folder in my smartphone, it’s not copied to my WDNAS. The inverse action (WDNAS to SMARTPHONE) is working fine both, folders and files.

So, the issue is related only with FILES when I MOVE or CREATE new ones. Even if I force a synchronization from “Sync” on my smartphone, file operations (except delete) are not synchronized.

I don’t understand what’s the problem with files.

"Selective Sync" is disabled and, as you can see on attached captured images, curiosly in "Details", ALWAYS appears "Last synchronization: Still no syncrhonized"  (even if I force synchronization).

What am I doing wrong?

As I read it, you use BTsync (because of .bts), the predecessor of Resilio on "MyCloud" and Resilio on the Smartphone.

Although it is highly related software, BTsync uses other temporary files (xxxx.bts) compared to Resilio (yyyy.!sync). The operating files in the file system are also slightly different. Therefore, an IgnoreList with IgnorePattern must be stored for both programs, so that no temporary files are transferred against each other during syncing, or even overwritten or deleted.

In this way Syncthing can also work in Resilio by ignoring Syncthing's temporary working files, and vice versa by Syncthing by ignoring Resilio's temporary working files, the same issue.
