Qsync keeps popping up on Win 11 taskbar

Post by Steve62 » Tue Sep 06, 2022 3:05 pm

I'm using Qsync on Winodws 11 as I have bene for some time. For the past few weeks, the Qsync client has been showing up on the taskbar randomly for no reason. Clicking on it does nothing, preview thumbnail appear invisible, but does show the X to close in the top right corner and this works. The client is runnig in the background. Any ideas how to stop this?

Windows 11 Pro, build 22000.918 and Qsync clinet version 5.0.5.0620.

No Windows 11 here, just running on Win 10. As a workaround: what, if you remove Qsync from taskbar?
My guess is that some replications causing the pop-up as an update notice.

If I remove it from the taskbar, it pops up again at some random point later on. There does not appear to be a pattern to this. It has just ]now done somethign even stranger. I was answering emails using my Outlook client, when I notived something had popped up behind it. when I minimised Outlook, this was how the desktop looked.

If I dragged the mouse over it, differnet parts of the Qsync client window appeared. I coujdl also cloose it using the x once more. I had not had the client open, it had been runnign in the background.

But this seems to be more an issue with video driver!?
For the pop-ups I would recommend to create a ticket at QNAP support, may there is some incompabiltiy or wrong setting in Win11.
As said, with Win10 at several boxes no issue.

What I have noticed (but not for sure): when my TS-473A shuts down at night and starts again next day Qsync is not able to reconnect by itself. I need to run a "check connection" at client. But this could also due to the QTS 5.0.1 firmware.
At my NAS with FW 4.x I do not have such behaviour, Qsync reconnects when NAS was bootet.

I raised a ticket with Qnap support and they suggested uninstalling QSync client and reinstalling in a different location (from ...\Program Files (x86)\ to ...\Program Files\. I did this and the odd behaviour has now ceased.

Did you an update from Win10 to 11 or was this an installation of Win 11 "from scratch"?
The installation of Qsync client was a default installation or did you change the path during setup?

Anyhow, strange that the path is causing such an issue.

Same problem here.
New Win11 installation from scratch.
Every few minutes fragments of the qsync client appears on my monitor.....
Off topic, my Qfinder Pro app doesn't open anymore. Double clicking the icon just brings my qsync window fragments back again. :lol:

Very strange behavior.

Did you try the proposed solution of uninstalling, then reinstalling into a different directory or the linked version from support?

If the issue is the install path, it sounds like a win11 security or permission issue.

I have exactly the same issue on Win11 since QSYNC version 5.0.5.0620 when it was released a few months back.
- On Win10 it works fine
- On Win11, I rolled back to version 5.0.4.1523 and everything was fine again. However, recently I was forced to update because the old client couldn't connect to the server anymore.
- On Win11 the popups are not random but occur after each start after sleep and hibernate.

I didn't try the installation in a different folder yet as I was hoping that QNAP releases a bug fix soon given the fact that we are several users having the same problem.

Did you open tickets with QNAP though ? Posting here does not alert/inform QNAP of anything.

Hi nameuser. Honestly I didn't see your link. I thought it was part of your signature. :ashamed:

Today I received the same version 5.0.6.713 from QNAP Support and it resolved the issue for me. They said it will soon be officially released (whatever "soon" means).

So if you don't want to download the file you can wait until the new version gets released.
