Cannot sync a subdirectory of a directory starting with dot

Hi, I am using Cryptomator and I like having a “.vaults” directory in Google Drive where I keep all the vaults of Cryptomator.
This works well with Dropbox (with their original client), but apparently does not work with Google Drive and Insync.
I have a directory under the “.vaults” directory, but it does not sync.
If I look at the “.vaults” directory through the Insync GUI, all I see is “This folder is empty”.

Please help.

I am using Insync on openSuse Tumbleweed.


Hello @Cris70!

Could you share the filenames of the contents of the .vaults directory? Do send us your logs.db and out.txt files as well. These 2 files should be in ~/.config/Insync.

For your security and privacy, please email these requested details + files to and include a link to this Forums post for easy reference. Thank you!

Hi @mia! Today, after a reboot, Insync started syncing that folder, too. :upside_down_face:

I see! In that case, let me know if you need further assistance on this. Thank you!
