  1. This sort of thing has happened to me twice recently. One synced folder just completely disappeared - luckily I had fully synced it to another device and was able to restore it. However, just yesterday I got an error that the .sync folder from one of my other shares was missing, so I disconnected and reconnected to the same folder, hoping to rebuild the .sync folder.

I have a large movie database on my home computer (>4 TB) and selective sync is exactly what I needed to sync only certain files to my smaller devices with less storage capacity. However, I am having a few issues with the way placeholder files work - maybe I'm trying to do something I'm not supposed to do, I don't know.

It is certainly the direction I wanted sync services to go, rather than leaving sensitive data on an 3rd-party server somewhere. I love the new features of 2.0,
