New Insync version: 1.2.9


This is a hotfix release for 1.2.8.

Release notes:

  • Fixed issue with some sharing-related functionalities (e.g. copy private link).
  • (Windows) Fixed crashing of Explorer when right-clicking a folder within Insync. This is due to the addition of context-menu options that was added in 1.2.8, so they were removed for Windows for now.

Insync 1.28 Frozen

Insync 1.28 seems frozen

As previuous version, Insync 1.2.9 still uses 50% of CPU on idle all the time so I’ve to stop the syncing. Then the CPU downs to 0% and can start my work.
The same happens in two different computers with Ubuntu 14.04 installed in both. Hope you can fix it.

Thank you very much. :smile:


having syncing problems right now possible problem with Drive server…


@acutbal, I’m running insync 1.2.9 on Xubuntu 15.04, and on idle, CPU usage never reaches 1%. I ran this:

pidstat -C insync 10 60 >log

and you can see the results here.

If you allow me a suggestion, create a separate thread for the CPU usage issue, and take pidstat statistics on your computers.


Hi!! :smile:

@marcelpaulo thanks for your suggestion!! :smile: That’s what I’ve done:

And, yes, it seems that Insync doesn’t uses much CPU. But, after starting Insync my system monitor app (Syspeek) shows how the CPU rises and the laptop slows. Also, I’ve realized that there isn’t any synchronization at all (I think that perhaps it’s the similar issue as @Andre_Verwijs), and when I stop the syncing or shut down Insync all goes back to normality.

The same on two different computers, really weird… So, if the moderators think appropiate I’ll open a new thread, and give all the info that they may need (logs, etc…)

Very best regards!! :smile: :smile:

PD: I apologize for my English, it’s not my language. Also, I’m not a power linux user, just a simple user I hope I can explain my self correctly.


Wow, your CPU usage is significantly higher than mine. I bet @lpugoy will want to investigate that. If I were you, I’d open a new thread so that the problem can be tracked separately.

I ain’t, either. If you need any help with the commands, don’t hesitate to ask !


@marcelpaulo Thank you very much!! :smile:
