My brain is tiny so I had no idea what "enter the secret" meant. Here's how I got it working:

  • Open up the BitTorrent Sync window.
  • Go to the My Sync tab.
  • Add Folder.
  • Paste the shared secret (DEADF00B2MNL3KYCDEIZVGALTK4VJ7I in this example) into Shared Secret.
  • Choose or create a new folder in Folder to Sync. (Important: this can't be a folder inside any existing folder that's already synced!)
  • Press OK and your stuff ought to start syncing.

You might want to delete any movies you don't care about; they take forever.
