I followed all the steps, but this syncing does not work for me.
Machine 1 & 2: Ubuntu 16.04.3
Number of Insync Accounts: Two accounts syncing different folders to two different Google drives with no overlap.
Insync Folders (for example):
Machine1: /media/Disk03/Insync/Acc1@test.com and /media/Disk03/Insync/Acc2@test.com
Machine2: /media/Disk04/Insync/Acc1@test.com and /media/Disk04/Insync/Acc2@test.com
Each account folder has symlinks to different folders that need to be synced with that account (for example):
So after I complete the OP steps on Machine2, syncing stops with a red exclamation mark and the Action Required section shows the message:
Machine2: Syncing for media/Disk03/Folder1 is paused because it went missing
The message appears for each symlink folder.
So the problem here is that on Machine2, Insync is looking Disk03 (in Machine1) and not Disk04 (in Machine2) despite the symlink actually pointing at Disk04. In other words, Insync seems to be storing the value of the Machine1 symlink internally and not rechecking the value once it is moved to Machine2.
