How Do I Change From Rw Key To A Ro Key?

Recommended Posts

I have my pictures on my computer that I sync to two different locations for backup purposes.  When I set it up I did it with a Read/Write key which I used in the two other backup locations.  I want to change it so they are read only as I will only be updating the original location.  I am using the latest version of Sync.  I tried to use the update key feature.  When I do, and try to enter the new RO key, it tells me I need a R/W key.

Thank you for  the response.  I have tried your suggestion.  I disconnect all instances.  I then create a new secret using the same directory with a read only key.  When I add the key to the two other instances, it goes into an infinite "out of sync" / "Sending" / "receiving" loop.

you should be able to remove the folders from the ones you want to be read-only, then take the already existing read-only key and readd the folder (rather than generating new keys).

 

having only read-only keys in your syncgroup can cause weird things (at least one should be r-w).
