  1. Large folder does not seem to sync

    Hi,

    Thanks for creating and sharing such a neat little tool, for smaller collections of files it works like a dream. However, I can't seem to get it to upload a large collection of files. I'm trying to upload about 8GB but it just sticks on 'Analyzing' I've left it running for hours and even over night but no success. Is there anything I can do to make it work?

    Thanks

      • Error Report

        Hi,

        Let's describe an Issue: Sharepoint can't hande some characters, as an example the & symbol. You can't create a file with an & in it's name in sharepoint.
        Some people don't know that and it get's always forgotten.

        Now the situation with SPSync. When you create a file in the local folder with a & in it's name, it won't be shown on the sharepoint site.

        It would be really nice if you could make some error reports for that.

        • Can we make contact

          Hi,

          I run a small managed service provider business in Australia. We are trying to setup a service for some of our clients using Office 365 (OneDrive for Business & SharePoint) that we are calling Cloud File Server. This is intended to provide syncing from the client’s server to the cloud and allow them to access the files using an “Explorer like” interface.

          Everything has been developed and works fine, except for one major roadblock. The OneDrive for Business sync will only support 5,000 files/folders per library and maximum of 20,000 per computer.

          We would like to make contact with…

          • Delete option for sync configuration is broken.

            Hi, when I select a sync configuration and select delete a confirmation window pops up with text and a button but doesn't stay open. Files then appear to be deleted by the sync config, but it is labeled as "delelting remote file...". Is this deleting file from my sharepoint site?

                I just wanted to provide some encouragement, we have had so much trouble with OneDrive / Skydrive for Business it is fantastic that somebody is taking a simlified approach, Microsoft badly need to rewrite their sync tool it is possibly the worst thing I have ever used. Thank you for developing this alternative :)

                • Sync to SharePoint site not working

                  Hello This is a great little tool but I just have an issue with it I'm afraid.
                  The Sync from SharePoint to the local drive works ok, its the sync from the local drive to the SharePoint that doesn't. It looks to be doing work and sais complete but the files are not present in the on line site.
                  We have Kerberos and only fail back to NTLM could that be causing this?

                  • Disable automatic synchronization

                    It would be great to sync manually and not automatically

                      Great idea. For internal testing, the list of changes is already generated, but not visible to the user. I will look how to visualize that. To disable auto sync, you can open the SPSync.exe.config file (in the install folder) and change the AutoSyncInterval to the max value of 2147483647 minutes. That should be more then enough to never sync automatically again.

                    • overwrite local changes why it still delete files from sharepoint server? :(

                      I choose overwrite local changes instead of overwrite remote changes, why it will delete files from SharePoint server. it create headache to me now. :(

                        I have a document library with a lot of sub-folders and files, but I just want to sync the files underneath one of the sub-folder. Can it be implemented?

                        • Enable the option to only sync one way

                          The tool looks very promising, but i would like to enable syncing just from sharepoint to local drive.

                          • Uninstalling should clear data

                            I've had issues when i create a file locally, then i am not able to sync it to sharepoint because i don't have contribute rights on the sharepoint list(this is intended).
                            When i delete the file again locally, i get errors because the file doesn't exist.
                            So i tried uninstalling and installing again, but all settings i made previously were still there and i still got those errors.
