Folder Preferences dont work ...

Recommended Posts

I have two clients that each have the following folders in Resilio Sync

Folder A (Small Files, to be synchronized via the Internet)
Folder Preferences

Folder B (Big Files, should only be synchronized via LAN)

However, the settings for Folder B are not applied. The exchange of data takes place even if the two clients are connected via the Internet in different locations.

i get it right and folder A in on clientA, folder B is on clientB?
you'd better use power-user settings for that - these get applied the moment you add the share 

Once you use 'folder prefs', and add folder B to Sync, it starts connecting to tracker. Even if you disable tracker after that, it might have managed to communicate client's address to clientA., especially if it's folderA that is shared thru link/key.

Nope, Client A and Client B has both folders.

Folder A should keep sync files between Client A and B every time possible over Internet or Local.

But Folder B should only bei sync when both clients are on a local network

still the same - do it thru power user settings. remove shares from sync, disable tracker/relay there. add shares back to Sync. 
enable tracker and relay for folderA will start using them, while folderB won't

I don't quite understand this behaviour - then the folder options are completely superfluous?

With Sync 1.4 this behaviour was still understandable - the folder option did exactly that - either turned off the tracker connection or not.
