What is current best practice for syncing existing folders?

I note that Sync puts a 'system folder' in the folder being shared.....if I setup a Sync share (creating the Sync system folder), then copy across the content outside sync (USB connected directed to source) and copy the payload would Sync see the content as synced?

I think it should.......

Cheers, Geoff.

Sync only syncs the files that are located inside a share - the folder which is added to Sync. You can see share's path if you hover mouse over it in Sync. 
If you copy/move the files out of sync share, Sync won't be looking at them. 
Here you can see the guide on syncing existing folders. Hope this is what you're looking for?
