I ran into a huge issue when I accidentally renamed a folder on my Macbook and essentially broke the link I had to my Raspberry Pi cloud. I had to do some clean up work but I had to wait for everything to resync and then relink the folder via secret code on my Pi. 

 

Is there any way to fix this? Read only option? Rename the folder from the root directory? Thanks.

DesignMongrel,

 

If you renamed the folder that was added to BTSync - you can either rename it back, or just remove in BTSync from UI then add a new folder with the same secret.

 

It won't re-sync files if they were not changed.

Maybe it had not relinked to the root folder because it was during a live sync then? I should do some tests because there was a folder in there that will not sync through, I think assuming that the folder was still in there, but I had removed it from the destination sync because I've read some horror stories on here regarding lost files and I didn't want BTSync to delete it by mistake.

DesignMongrel,

 

Actually BTSync removes files only to SyncArchive. This is done intentionally to make sure no valuable data removed.
