Destination folder not empty.


Recommended Posts

After working for two weeks to track down an issue on the gateway computer, I now need to setup folders which were previously setup.  Unfortunately, I have documents in the destination folder which need to be synced to the gateway.  When I try to connect to the destination folder on my laptop, I get the expected message "Destination folder not empty.  Add anyway?"  I cannot lose the files not synced in the destination folder.  What happens when I click "OK" to add anyway?  This is a critical situation.

You can choose "OK", nothing negative will happen. The connection is then established and if the files have not been changed by then, they are only indexed, otherwise the newer files may be transferred. If you still feel unsure, you can do a manual comparison beforehand.
