Insync error need clarification


i am getting the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 76, in ipc_insync
File “”, line 224, in meth
error: [Errno 111] Connection refused

i am running Linux Centos

seems like others have problem with this issue also on debian:

Whats happening ? please dont release version which are unstable in worst case it can delete our entire files.

does centos also need a new version with bug fix ?

I am in a situation where i have zero backup at present, and insync continuesly fail with the above error. emailed support multiple times (luis) but receive no responce.

live chat is only avaialble monday through friday, unfortunately today is wednesday so they not available . HMM

i would love support to address my issue at the earliest.


the most confusing part is

both my servers are running different insync version
and both of them upload to different gmail accounts

so i dont know why both of them get same error .


Will be tagging our engineer @lpugoy and he will get back to you.



Luis helped me resolve the problem here is what we did

The errors with “Inotify failed to watch” probably refers to Insync being unable to watch some folders for changes. Please try the following:

Open a terminal
Run “sysctl fs.inotify.max_user_watches”. Take note of the value.
Edit the file “/etc/sysctl.conf”.
Look for an entry for “fs.inotify.max_user_watches”. If there is none create a new one.
Set the value to be 1048576 or double the value in step 2, whatever is bigger.
After saving your changes run “sudo sysctl -p” to let the new value take effect.
Restart Insync.
