I’m running v1.3.3 on a Raspberry Pi. Working good for a year or more and today I removed a 50-60 GB sync folder using the normal GUI. The GUI interface locked up and is now unresponsive. Reboot the computer and syncthing runs but htop says the syncthing is taking 30-100% of the CPU. GUI appears locked up still.
Log file says "Cleaning data for dropped folder “xxxx-xxxx” (which I assume is because I deleted a big sync folder) so I figured I’d wait a while. But then I noticed the log shows syncthing is restarting over and over with a “fatal error: runtime: out of memory”. I don’t think any progress is being made.
start prints node ID hash performance cleaning data.. fatal error: runtime: out of memory start prints node ID hash performance cleaning data.. fatal error: runtime: out of memory (repeat over and over)
In ~/.config/syncthing, I see dozens of panic log files, but don’t know how to make sense of them or what to look for or what to change.
I looked in the config.xml file and the folder I deleted is not listed, leaving only the two other ones I had defined.
How do I recover this situation? Is there some manual way to clean out whatever it’s trying to clean out so syncthing won’t run out memory?
