Change Folder Name

Recommended Posts

I would like to change the name of a folder that I have synced between two computers. It's a large folder so I want to avoid re-syncing the contents.  What is the best way to do this?

 

I guess the obvious answer might be to copy the contents from the currently synced folder to the new folder, and then re-share. Does this work or does it cause issues?

The easiest way is as follows:

 

  1. Note the folder's current Secret
  2. Remove the folder from Sync
  3. Rename the folder in your OS
  4. Add the folder back to Sync with its original secret

 

The folder will be re-indexed, but nothing should transfer as its contents will be identical to the other devices it was previously sharing with.
