Hey!  Yeah, we ran into this issue too.

The solution was to edit the StreamsList file in the problem directory, to disable resource forks [metadata that isn't likely needed outside of the origin OS] from syncing.

The fix:

In Terminal, open with VIM/Nano:  <Problem_Folder>/.sync/StreamsList  --> disable resource forks: add a # at the start of the com.apple.ResourceFork line --> write buffer/save --> Exit --> restart the Resilio service or reboot

[if none of this made sense, let me know and I can try to explain step-by-step]
