Matched files are not unsynced after adding a Ignore rule (.gitignore)


I am using the latest version of Insync (v3.8.7.50505) on Windows.

On this page , it says that “You can ignore both new and old files. Files that have been previously synced will be unsynced if it matches a rule.”

It does not seem to be the case if the file was synced before and the rule was added after the sync. A simple test can corroborate it.


Hi @EricC!

Just checking if you clicked Apply on the lower right of the app when making changes to the Ignore Rules? I just tried this myself and can confirm that the Ignore Rules work as described in the Help Guide.

Thank you!
