Deletion of empty folders after synchronization


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

if i have a sync pair between my PC and my cell phone and on the PC side a folder is deleted it remains as empty folder on the cell phone side (Android, Samsung S8). How can the settings be arranged, that these folders are deleted on both sides?

rgds, Holger

Better is to have on both sides the IgnoreList. As editor I use Notepad++, but also you can use similar editors. Simply open the file IgnoreList you find in each .sync folder and write line per line your excludions, e.g.:
 

# Resilio + Syncthing .stglobalignore
# IgnoreList is a UTF-8 encoded .txt file that helps you specify single files, paths and rules
# for ignoring during the synchronization job. It supports "?" and "*" wildcard symbols.
#
# ? substitutes any single character in a filename
# * substitutes a string of several (any number) characters in a filename
# a/**/b ignore between root and target folder, will ignore folders a/b, a/x/b, a/x/y/b and so on
# ABC/CDE F will ignore subfolder “CDE F" of “ABC" which is located in a subfolder

The Resilio and Syncthing entrances I have, since I using Resilio and Syncthing in parallel by different reasons.
