How can I find the device a shared folder is on?

Recommended Posts


I'm using Sync Home Pro to sync files between my PC's, my NAS and 2 Android phones.

On both both I have setup a backup of the DCIM folder to my NAS. The backup works fine.

On my PC's I see 2 shared folders named 'DCIM'.

How can I find out which DCIM is from which Android phone?

AFAIK the only way to know is to connect to the folder and then look at the peers list. If you're worried about downloading everything from DCIM just by connecting, leave the folder in Selective Sync mode after you connect.

That's why it's generally a good idea for your synced folders to have unique names. I sync my pics to my PC too, but I do that by using Tasker + Termux to copy my photos into a central, unique Sync folder that's shared among all my devices. Then, on my desktop PC, I import the sync folders from the \Sync folder to my photo library.
