Hello! - I ran into an issue and I’m trying to figure out if it’s a bug, or if the product was never designed to work the way I was expecting.
So, for starters, the reason I ended up using this product is 100% because it allows you to sync network drives to Google Drive. In my case, this is very important because I have TB’s of data that became difficult to manage on my machines so I eventually needed everything moved to a NAS. After installing Insync, I was able to setup my network drive and everything worked just as intended.
However, after using it for a while I am now noticing that anything placed in that network folder from a machine other than the machine running Insync will NOT get synced. If this is normal behavior, I can somewhat understand why it’s that way, but the problem becomes this…
There is no option provided in the Insync application to rescan a specific folder for changes, or even to rescan everything if you wanted to pick up changes.
The only way around this for me has been to restart Insync which forces it to rescan everything which results in my files being picked up. This is, of course, a crappy solution because it literally takes DAYS for my Insync to start back up and rescan my entire network drive just to find those changes.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? Any ideas on some viable workarounds?
