Hi, I just experienced some weird syncing issues and wanted to start from fresh.
So I stopped insync, renamed my root drive folder, created a new empty folder and started insync again.
I naively thought that insync would recognize this as a brand new folder that needed to sync from cloud -> local.
Instead insync decided that i had deleted my entire google drive, which moved ~3000 files to the trash bin.
I’m still picking up the pieces, and I am fairly shocked that you have no failsafe to prevent this kind of mistake.
ffs. how can you start deleting EVERYTHING without so much as a prompt asking the user to confirm?!
I have since understood start that in order to get a freshly synced folder, i must delete my entire insync config folder. that is not… user friendly lets say…
For now insync is uninstalled to avoid further damage. And I am debating whether to reinstalling it again. Especially after reading a lot of post regarding wild deletion behavior from the last year or so.
