C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync

C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive

If you run Sync as service, the dumps location depends on the user under who service runs, it will be either

C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync Service

C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync Service

C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync Service

 

Gathering Core dump

1. Open Windows task manager while the Sync crash window is still opened

2. Go to the "Processes" tab

3. Find Sync, right-click on it and pick "Dump".

/Users/<user_name>/Library/Application Support/Resilio Sync”.

OS X crash reports are located at /Users/<user_name>/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/ -- they would be files whose names start with "Resilio Sync...".

 

Gathering Core dump

Please, follow these steps:

1. Download script get_rslsync_mac_coredump.sh
2. Launch terminal
3. Type in

chmod a+x ~/Downloads/get_rslsync_mac_coredump.sh
~/Downloads/get_rslsync_mac_coredump.sh

4. Wait for a crash and the core dump compressing.
5. Send the gzipped coredump to us.

 

LINUX

./.sync. If you use sync.conf (configuration file) see in the configured local storage folder

 

Gathering Core dump

1. In Terminal run command ulimit -c unlimited.

2. From this Terminal window start Sync the way you usually do.

3. When Sync crashes, there should be a crash dump placed near rslsync binary. It will be a file with digits in its name. NOTE: if you launch Sync at startup via a startup script, dump will be placed in another directory, depending on your script, being most likely file system root.

If you can’t find coredump at the base (current) directory, please refer to http://sigquit.wordpress.com/2009/03/13/the-core-pattern/.

In order to collect crash dumps on an iOS-powered device you will need to connect it to a desktop computer.

1. Connect your device to your Mac via iTunes.

3. Sync all data to your Mac by clicking the "Apply" button in the lower-right corner of the screen.

4. Go to /Users/<user_name>/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<your device's name>/ for the logs.

5. Send this file to us.

 

There is another way to collect crash reports if you have access to a Mac:

 

1. Launch Xcode on Mac (this is a free app).

2. Connect your device to the Mac,

3. Find your device in the left column of Xcode, then go to "Device Log" section and copy-paste the content of the latest BTSync.crash report.

 

If your desktop runs Windows, please, search for the reports in the following folders:
