[PRO] bug: folder is not recretead after Remove from this device in selective

Recommended Posts

Scenario:

- share a directory in selective sync on Windows

- the shared directory has several subdirectiories, click 'Sync to this device' on one of them

- wait for it to sync then click 'Remove from this device'

- directory disappears and reappears as a file with .rsls extension

 

Expected behavior:

Directory is recreated as a directory, not a file.

I have read: https://help.getsync.com/hc/en-us/articles/205458095-Selective-Sync

but it is nowhere stated that a directory will turn into a file placeholder. It only says about files.

I am attaching a desktop dump showing what I am talking about. The path is D:/General Sync/Dane/Downloads/Test and D:/General Sync/Dane is the path of the actual directory shared in Sync in selective sync - so I am inside a shared directory doing that on directories inside. Are you sure this is the correct behavior?

If yes then why at the first time a directory is created and then it is turned into a file? I mean that it is really nice that the directory structure is created because you easily navigate but after such a scenario you lose that.
