After updating to 2.6.1 impossible to setup readonly folder on linked devices

Recommended Posts

After updating to 2.6.1 (7881) on Sony XZ1 with Android 8.0, following the need to disconnect/reconnect all the shared folders to access them (as reported in other thread), I noticed that it is no longer possible to connect folders in readonly mode according to procedure reported in:

https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/206216565-How-to-create-a-Read-Only-folder-while-syncing-across-linked-devices-

This used to work in previous release.

Thank you for providing feedback on this issue.

UPDATE: the issue does not occur using the read-only-key as reported in the procedure. I encountered it using instead the read-only QR code, which I assumed would have the same effect which is not the case. BTW why using the read-only QR code has not the same effect as using the read-only-key?
Thank you for your support

But the source folders are Standard?

Yes, standard folder on Windows 10 PC. I declared "standard folder" specifically to have read-only access on Android linked device. I noticed that when I connect the folder on Android with the read-only QR code the read-only attribute is not propagated, but when I connect with the read-only key it is propagated which is an unexpected behaviour in my opinion.

Thank you for your support

@darpas Please check the instruction where you can find the description:

 If you’d like to create a Read Only folder on any of your linked devices - whether it be a desktop or mobile device (Android only) - you’ll need to use a Standard folder with a Read Only key.

The QR code scanning won't work only key adding.
