Sync is resyncing all files after moving encrypted folder


Recommended Posts

I'm experiencing some problems with Sync after trying to move an encrypted folder from one location to another.

I read in some other threads that I should just remove the folder from Sync, move the folder to the new location and then re-add the folder to Sync with the encrypted key.

I did this and expected that Sync will just index the (encrypted) folder once and then recognize that all the files are still there. However, after 3 hours I can definitely confirm that Sync is re-syncing all the files and just overwriting all the files that I just copied. The folder contains about 100 GB of data, so this takes quite long unfortunately.

What is causing this problem and how could I solve this?
