Summary0013498: Device sync: Our reservation isn't always enough when auto-conversion is faster than copying
DescriptionWhen user sync a device with enabled auto-conversion then the files are pre-converted to temp and are deleted once are copied to the device, but if conversion is faster than copying and there is thousands of files to copy then the temp drive is filled up and only 100 MB is reserved.

Based on the findings from ticket #DOQ-259-16460 the 100 MB isn't enough. Something else is probably eating the disk space and the computer crashes.

I guess we should modify it to reserve at least 1GB.

Note that we have already covered the situation when there isn't a space for a single file as 0012440, in that case the error dialog is shown, otherwise the converter just waits until the other files are copied to the device and freed.

TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2406

Re-opened to make further improvements based on feedback here:

To limit the amount of pre-converted tracks to at most 50 files and/or 20-30GBs (together with the existing limit of 1GB free space).
This sounds good, just probably would be sub-optimal when audio files are copied/converted prior to video files -- as videos usually takes longer time to convert than copy (in case of audio it is vice versa).

It is working normally, if users complain on slower video sync in future versions e can consider expanding thist to work per type eg. 50 audio and 50 Videos
