First, thank you for Syncthing. Its really, really, awesome.
Second, I will try to give as much info as possible about my problem:
I’m running latest Syncthing Android version (0.13.0) on my (stock, encrypted and non rooted) Nexus 5 and I have two shared folders:
- …/…path-to-internal-memory…/; called “Nexus5Backup”
- …/…path-to-internal-memory…/Syncthing/MobileShared; called “MobileShared”
First folder uses .stignore file to sync only a few folders. And it works as it should. This is a Master Folder. Second folder just syncs “MobileShared” folder, no special settings.
The first folder is the one that give me problems. Is shared with only one peer, my backup server. It is a Linux server running Syncthing 0.13.1. The “Nexus5Backup” folder at my server has the flag “ignoreDelete”, so I can delete pictures/videos/something from mobile and still have a copy at my server. This is the main feature I need. “Nexus5Backup” at the mobile is a MasterFolder, so if I delete, modify or add something in the server, the mobile never changes.
Activity in the folder This is what I did:
- Folder created on both peers. Synced.
- On the server, pasted old-backups on the folder to have everything in one place.
- At the mobile, as expected, folder went out of sync (its ok).
- Problem starts.
After some time with syncthing running on the mobile, Sycthing starts draining my battery. I can see in the GUI the “Nexus5Backup” status icon blinking blue-red-blue-red. If I expand the folder, the red “Override Changes” button also blinks “hidden-showing-hidden-showing”.
And that is my problem… Any ideas? This setup used to work a few weeks ago, but I had to re-create the folder, but just for a mistake moving files.
**Thank you very much!**
