On my laptop, several sync folders are on an external drive. I leave sync running all the time. I just noticed that, while the drive wasn't available, sync has grabbed (apparently randomly) a path to a different folder, on a different external drive. Now the original drive is back, it's saying 'folder not available' because it wants to sync with this folder it's randomly picked. Several other folders on the same drive aren't affected. It's a Macbook Air running Sync 1.4.106 on OS X 10.10.1. I previously ran Sync up to 1.3 with a similar set up and never had this problem; I installed 1.4 from scratch (i.e. re-adding all the folders) and it's been fine for a 5 days. I'm going to remove the rogue folder and re-add the proper one. The history doesn't indicate any damage done, and I hope this doesn't happen again - but any idea what the cause is, or how I can minimise the risk?
