  1. Thanks for the reply, but I am a little confused by it. Let me try to be a little more clear on my part. I'm currently running Android Marshmallow 6.0.1, stock from my provider. Folder A = Source folder on my PC Folder B = On my phone's microSD card. I wish Folder B to mirror all changes, if any, from Folder A. With that said, shouldn't Folder A be set to RO and Folder B set to RW? In my initial post, I only set up Folder A in my PC's Resilio Sync application. From there, I used my phone to scan the QR code (either Folder A's RO or RW code) to initiate synchronization between the two devices. In my phone's Sync app, I directed Folder A to transfer/update its contents to Folder B. I also turned off selective sync. With the RO QR code, I believe new files/subdirectories in Folder A not present in Folder B were added to Folder B. However, conflicting files (Folder A files on Folder B with newer timestamps) were not updated. With the RW QR code, conflicting files were resolved by files with newer timestamps overwritting older counterparts. However, subdirectories/files there were deleted from Folder A prior to sychronization were not deleted from Folder B and such conflicts were shown in Folder A after synchronization. For example, in Folder A: ├───Alternative and Rock │ ├───Built to Spill │ │ ├───Album 1 │ │ └───Album 2 will look like this after synchronization (from Folder A, artist directory renamed and Album 3 subdirectory deleted): ├───Alternative and Rock │ ├───Built to Spill │ │ ├───Album 1 │ │ └───Album 2 │ ├───Conflicted.Built TO Spill │ │ ├───Album 1 │ │ ├───Album 2 │ │ └───Album 3 From your quote, are you suggesting that I setup both Folder A (on my PC) and Folder B (on my phone) and point them to their respective directories for proper bidirectional syncing? For example, on my PC, Folder A (RO) receives a link from my phone's Folder B; on my phone, Folder B (RW) receives the QR code from my PC's Folder A. Will this establish that Folder B cannot update Folder A but any new or conflicting files from Folder A will be updated accordingly in Folder B? Will this prevent the creation of "Conflicted.X" in Folder A? FYI: directory tree is 5525 lines long.
  2. On my PC, I have folder that contains all of my playlists and music I wish to sync to my android phone (Folder A). Essentially, I desire the mirror that folder onto my phone (Folder B). From time to time, I will add/subtract songs or update playlists from Folder A (both are automatically generated) and I wish that it such changes will be reflected onto Folder B. However, the results have been underwhelming when syncing Folder A to Folder B, with Folder A as its source. Under read only mode, Sync did not update files with newer timestamps (updated playlists or files with updated tags). Under read+write mode, files with newer timestamps from Folder A replaced older files in Folder B (good!). However, subdirectories in Folder B not found in Folder A remained and, when there was a conflict, the parent directory of older files in Folder B showed up in Folder A as "foo.Conflict" (bad). So, at the end of the day, how can Sync be set up in a way that Folder B mirrors all of the updates and changes (additions and deletions) from Folder A?
