MEGASync client not syncing

Problem

I tried to use the MEGASync client on multiple computers running Ubuntu to sync up a common directory of content to the cloud. I noticed that on some of them the clients it would sync only the first time and not do anything after that!

Solution

This one is a very silly bug in their client. It downloads the content the first time the sync directory is created. However, it forgets to enable that directory for syncing in the future!

To turn it back on, go to Settings -> Syncs. Tick the checkbox that is beside your sync directory and click Apply. That is it!

Tried with: MEGASync 2.6.1 and Ubuntu 15.10

  1. Thanks for the TIP – it helped 🙂 Stupid error.
    Now I have another problem – it is extremely slow – as if the client “hangs” for 10-15 minutes after each file that it syncs (1 out of 419). Windows claims “Not responding”. Anoyne else seen this behaivior?

  2. If is that the solution, why they complicate?
    They should follow dropbox way, they do not have “upload folder” and “download folder”.

  3. Check out my solution for MegaSync stuck at “logging in” message.

    This happened to me after using wifi with a proxy. When I came back home, where there is no proxy, it just wouldn’t sync. It was stuck on “logging in” message forever. The only thing I could do is:

    Right-click on megaSync icon in the taskbar
    Select Settings (being the only option besides Exit)
    in the only available tab, Proxy settings tab, change from Auto-detect to No proxy
    Now the client should start syncing (the first message I got was "Fetching files list", or something like that)
    

    Good luck with fixing this! 👍
