My favourite app, FreeFileSync, in Linux version, normally will crash during syncing. The reason is not really known, only know that it is related to gtk+ or gtkmm. That means, FreeFileSync is not able to solve the problem.
So, normally, I need to sync several times, around 2 or 3 times to complete the syncing. First syncing will suddenly crash the application. Then I need to sync again, because the first syncing is not yet complete, there are some more files need to be synced. Sometimes, second time also crash, that is why I need do the syncing about 3 times.
So, this is not the best solution, but it is able to sometimes solve the problem.
- Do the comparison.
- We will see the list of files to be sync. If we press “sync” button now, normally will crash after a while during the syncing. To avoid this, we need to hide all the items in the list. Thus,
- At the “Select view” area, deselect all the “arrows”, so that the list will become empty.
- Now, sync.
As a result, the application will not crash during the syncing.
With the version 5.7, the bug is totally solved. Thanks to zhnmju123.
