Cannot change folder on local machine that drive is sync'd to

I am using Insync v on Linux Mint

When I start Insync it tells me the folder I sync to is missing - however it is not.

I’ve tried changing the folder I sync to to fix this and it will not change.

Instead I get this error and then the program basically hangs and I have to exit it


If I click on Choose Another Location then Insync hangs.

How do I fix this?

Hi @seanchk!

Could you send over your log files to with the link to this post?

How did you fix this?
I upgraded my distro and changed the mounting point of the partition where I have my synced directory.


and then it hangs…

Should I start a new thread?

Thanks for your help.


Could you send your logs.db and out.txt files to with the link to this post? You can find these in ~/.config/Insync. Seems like this has been reported in the past and I will need to raise this with our engineers.

I just did, thanks for your help.
