Folder sync stuck at initializing


#1

My seafile client shows “inititializing” forever at the repo sync. Does anyone have experience with this problem?


#2

Yes, had it sometimes. Unsync and start sync, maybe you have to delete the SFConflicts.


#3

Where to find the SFConflicts?


#4

After the resync of a libary you may get SFConflcit Files, because Seafile can’t decide what’s the newer state of a file.


#5

The library never starts to sync after i resync so many times. I noticed that when I sync other libraries, it showed “checking server info” immediately. In this case, just “initializing…” forever


#6

Can you please post your client’s log?


#7

It’s here. And the figure showing Seafile is initializing. In the logfile there are no entries with SD-Lehre



#8

There is nothing about ‘SD-Lehre’ in your log, seems it occurs for a long time now. Do you successfully sync ‘SD-Lehre’ with another device?


#9

How much quota have you left? From the image it looks like the quota could be too low.


#10

You mean Seafile has a quota limit to download/synchronize contents. I checked with the admin, he never set any quota. Is there some default values?


#11

try to mouseover the red bar in the lower left.
It will tell you how much of your quota is used and what quota is configured.

The default is 2 GB.
Link to the manual page -> https://manual.seafile.com/config/seafile-conf.html


#12

It showed 17.9G/20.0G. The SD-Lehre is 12.4G in size. So is this the reason why the sync does not initialize?


#13

probably.


#14

That also doesn’t make sense. Because there is a folder “SD-Konferenzen” with 22.7G in size but synced successfully.
sd_konferenzen


#15

it is shared with staff, if it is not shared by yourself it won’t count towards your own quota


#16

No. If you haven’t set one there is not limit.


#17

Can you run seaf-fsck.sh? See manual.seafile.com for more information.


#18

It also looks like there is at lease one library with some file names windows doesn’t like. These files cannot be fetched (but should just be skipped without leading to any further error). And there seems to be a more complicated case where multiple folders have the same name with different case, which windows also doesn’t support.
