.sync folder on SD card deleted on restart of Galaxy S7 Android 7.0


Recommended Posts


Resilio Sync used to work perfectly on my Galaxy Note 1 reading and writing from and to the SD card, syncing to and from my Windows 7 PC.

I have now bought a Galaxy S7 running Android 7.0 and the same doesn't work. I haveĀ 

  1. installed Resilio Sync from the Play Store and reinstalled it.
  2. Turned off simple mode
  3. Set up read only keys to get thousands of pictures and other files from three separate folders on the PC onto the SD card in the phone.
  4. All works well, and I can see the files in Total Commander, look at the pictures and play the MP3 files, but when the phone goes to sleep or restarts, Resilio tells me it can't find the destination folders. Sometimes I find that .sync/ID is missing or the whole .sync folder is missing.
  5. I have even tried moving the folder to sync into from
    SD:// (in my case /storage/5533-434F)
    to /storage/5533-434F/Android/data/com.resilio.sync/files/
    but the problem persists.

Is this a known problem?
