I just recently added “.lrdata” (Adobe Lightroom Image Previews) as folder extension to my ignore list. It seemed to work perfectly fine until I rebooted my machine the next time. Insync now shows about 12k Items queued, walking through all of the sub folders in the .lrdata folder. saying “uploading” for each one. My SSD is utilized up to 100% until it has finished ALTHOUGH these folders are on my external drive which is EVEN DISCONNECTED.
after doing my homework i found out that insync is jamming the SSD with massive write requests to a temp file named “etilqs_zbTu8aFF5NZ65r6” which currently has about 4MB and of course a lot of write requests to the DB.
At least the log file is no longer spammed with entries since i just updated to the latest version (184.108.40.206099).
So my question: why does Insync iterate through all the subfolders of an ignored folder? and why is that happening even though the actual drive is not even connected?
One more thing: when i click on the magnifying glass while the external drive is not connected, a ton of these log entries appear:
[0402/231342:INFO:CONSOLE(0)] “Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘name’ of undefined,” source: file:///C:/Users/Wolfgang/AppData/Roaming/Insync/App/res/html/js/main.js(46360)
[0402/231342:INFO:CONSOLE(0)] “Uncaught TypeError: Converting circular structure to JSON,” source: file:///C:/Users/Wolfgang/AppData/Roaming/Insync/App/res/html/js/main.js(47102)
when i connect the external drive, a click on the magnifying glass leads to exactly that subfolder inside the ingored folder.
I added some screenshots:
