I got this notice, after removing an unshared r/w Folder “Name” via the WebGUI. (v0.14.46 Windwos64)
2018-04-11 17:52:12: Error on folder "Name" (Name): folder marker missing
The folder was synced between some devices in the past, but was unshared before a week or two, from those devices. Today, I entered the WebGUI, opened that folder, clicked the “remove” button and confirmed the removal.
This seems like an odd message to me, because I only have seen this message, when I deleted the folder marker (for whatever reason) on the host filesystem.
When I checked in the Log, I see, that syncthing added the folder instead of removed it. (Yet, the folder is not visible anymore in the WebGUI)
2018-04-11 17:51:38 Adding folder "Name" (Name) 2018-04-11 17:51:39 No stored folder metadata for "Name": recalculating 2018-04-11 17:51:39 Ready to synchronize "Name" (Name) (readwrite) 2018-04-11 17:52:12 Error on folder "Name" (Name): folder marker missing 2018-04-11 17:52:12 Failed initial scan of readwrite folder "Name" (Name)
Well, it’s true, that I deleted the
.stfolder after I unshared the folder (hence the notice in the WebGUI, I guess), but its not true, that I added the folder again.
When checking the
config.xml (whose timestamp is from today, 17:51:39), I see, that the folder “Name” is not in there anymore. So that seems correct.
I never had this before and I unshared and then removed a lot of folders in the past.
Any Idea, what could have happened?
