Reporting Bugs

Please file bugs in the GitHub Issue Tracker. Include at least the following:

  • What happened

  • What did you expect to happen instead of what did happen, if it's not crazy obvious

  • What operating system, operating system version and version of Syncthing you are running

  • The same for other connected devices, where relevant

  • Screenshot if the issue concerns something visible in the GUI

  • Console log entries, where possible and relevant

If you're not sure whether something is relevant, erring on the side of too much information will never get you yelled at. :)
