[Solved] Cannot Rename One Of The Device

Recommended Posts

Hu guy,


Trying to rename one of the device but the option Edit is not there and the name is completely greyed out. Had no problems on other computer, just on one iMac.


Any idea how to fix? Maybe manual editing of some file?


Thank you

Once you've generated/shared links (rather than just Keys) from Sync, the device name becomes "fixed" and cannot be changed (as it forms part of the link/certificate)


The only way to change a device name at present is to completely uninstall Sync (and all settings), reinstall and add back your folders.


If you wish to be able to regularly change your device name; share Keys (instead of links), and the "Edit" option for device name will remain.
