Force_sync not adding new files from NFS share


#1

I have a drive account syncing with a NFS share. As expected when new files are added in the share insync doesn’t notice them to upload due to NFS not supporting inotify. I thought I had fixed it by adding a cron entry to run “insync-headless force_sync /share/account_name/camera”

This was working as long as new files were being added to directories that existed when insync started but once a new directory was added force_sync didn’t result in the directory or files in it to be uploaded to drive. Getting the file status returned UNKNOWN. I had to restart the insync headless binary to get the new folder syncing.

Thanks, this has been consistent for two days now. The folder in question has new subdirectories created every day and only a restart of the headless client results in the folders being uploaded.
