Remote changes in team drives are not detected


a month ago we decided to migrate all our company files from classical drive folders to team drives.

Since then, whenever a colleague of mine modifies the contents of some folders inside one of the team drives, my workstation does not notice these changes until I open the insync panel by hand and navigate the team drive by double clicking and taking the folder where I expect the change.

Obviously it is rather debilitating and forces me to use team drives exclusively from the web, making my insync license useless.

I hope that someone at Insnyc could take care of this problem.

I’m currently running Ubuntu 18.04 x86_64, kernel 4.15.0-51-generic, with insync version


This situation exists since months. You can take a look at my post history. The annual license business model is a joke as the core functionality is broken since autumn last year.

My hope is for the new software version 3. My fear is that it will take up to a year to get any usable version from the new branch. Still core functionality missing and not really tested very well yet. As far as I can tell there will be no development on the current version (1.5+) at all - at least there hasn’t been since last year.

To be completely honest: there sadly is no real alternative for Linux… as soon as there is anything comparable I’ll happily switch. Until then I am stuck with Insync.

Does not keep Team Drive sub folders in sync since several weeks on Ubuntu 18.10
