    • Error after selecting any folder

      (Error) An error has occurred: Object reference not set to an instance of an object on server. The object is associated with property ListItemAllFields.

      List of folders loads fine and lets me select them, and I have tried a few different folders, plus tested different MS account credentials including those with full access to the library, and still I only get this same error message.

      • List '***' does not exist at site with URL

        Hi there, so far SPsync looks good and i would be very happy to find a solution for my sync issues.

        I always receive the message:
        List '***' does not exist at site with URL. I tried a couple of url versions, and could find out that my url is right so far and also my credentials are OK, but SPsync can't receive the folders. What can I do?

              • Sync files that are locked by other users

                I think many of the missing files issues can be combined under this umbrella issue, it seems that if files are locked for editing by other users SPSync won't copy from remote to local. However the Microsoft ODfB software does sync files that are locked by other users. If it is possible it would be best to still sync files that are locked by other users, although I understand the reason not to, if you then change it locally it won't be possible to copy it back if it's still locked. Also if it is locked it will almost certainly…

                • Not updating properly

                  Initial sync (remote to local) ran fine, but some new and modified files fail to update. This tool has so much potential, but it's unusable in its current form.

                  • SPSync says sync is complete but a lot of files are missing

                    SPSync states that the sync is complete, however a lot of files and folders are missing compared to the online version.
                    When forcing a new sync, nothing changes.

                        Hello, I like this tool, I'm using SPSync for SharePoint online. (office 365) at least once a day I get prompt for password. Although password is right. When I reenter sync runs successfully. After some time I get prompt for password again. Any option how to solve this?

                            Windows gives a warning about not being able to verify the publisher and after I press run, nothing happens. Is there a log file I can look at to see what the problem is?

                                If a SharePoint site has empty folders, it seems spsync does not sync them locally. It would be useful so users can start adding files to those folders offline and then have them synced back - but it requires that the folder exist offline

                                  • Files Deleted in Sharepoint

                                    Hi,

                                    I don't know why this exactly happened, but your tool deleted all files in some sub folders on my share point today. Fortunately i have been able to restore those, but quite a shock.

                                    What i have done, maybe it helps:
                                    1. Synced only sub folders, i.e. not all folders available on share point.
                                    2. That worked well for some days.
                                    3. Extended folder that i want to sync. At that time, the tool suddenly deleted all files in some sub folders, especially in those that were new.

                                    Theory:
                                    1. Related to some files where file name is too…

                                    • Provide a way to see unsynced folders (different icon) that exist in the SharePoint library

                                      SPSync works great for syncing folders. One challenge with the entire Onedrive for Business setup is that everything has to be synced for a user to perceive it to work like traditional mapped drives. It would be nice to be able to "see" unsynced folders so that files could be opened/saved to those locations if the user is online. A different icon could be used to identify synced and unsynced folders so that the user would have a visual queue on the status.

                                      I'd be interested in the cost of adding such a feature and contributing to offset the cost.

                                      • User used to access SharePoint

                                        In configuration it is needed to add credentials for the user to access the SharePoint site. Especially for onpremise solutions the "CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials" is useful, because if user is logged into Windows as the user to access SharePoint, the step to specify the user is really not needed. It should be possible to leave empty (or have check box with "Use default") and spsync should use default credentials.

                                        • Duplicate notification area icons

                                          Every time you click the desktop shortcut for spsync, a new icon is created in the notification area. Could this be avoided?

                                          Maybe have an animated icon for spsync while it is syncing so that there is no confusion about whether it is working or not.
