I’m using insync to sync about 9TB of files, between a local external 12TB HD and google drive. All files already exist in both locations.
I committed the cardinal sin of pausing sync and changing the base folder before allowing the initial sync to complete (there should be more warning not to do this!). However, it would not be possible to wait for the initial sync to complete as the system storage drive (1TB) where the default base folder lives would not have enough space to complete the sync.
I am now missing a bunch of files in google drive. If I attempt to open a .gdoc file from my local external HD, google drive web client tells me the file is in the trash. Which I assume is from changing the base folder.
I’m wondering how to proceed without risking file loss. Should I simply unpause sync and wait until insync has finished syncing? or has changing the base folder messed up the sync process entirely and continue file loss?
I’m also wondering why unsyncing a folder causes it to be removed from my local hd. I’m now scared to proceed.
