- Hardware setup: External storage media <—USB—> Pioneer FreedomBox <—ethernet—> router.
- Software: Running Debian GNU/Linux 11 (Bullseye) and FreedomBox version 21.4.
Setup: I attached external storage media to Pioneer FreedomBox. I used SSH to enter into Pioneer FreedomBox, created empty “test” folder (Send & Receive) in external storage media, then created empty “test” folder (Send & Receive) in Android. Pioneer FreedomBox and Android devices recognized each other, and the folders recognized each other.
File originally in Android: But when I placed one file into Android “test” folder, Pioneer FreedomBox “test” folder seemed to recognize there’s a file, but does not sync. Pioneer FreedomBox “test” folder said “Out of Sync,” and under “Out of Sync items” lists 1 file of 205 KB (the correct size of the file).
File originally in external storage media: Then, I created a text file in the “test” folder of the external storage media attached to the Pioneer FreedomBox. The text file appeared in the Android “test” folder, but the files in the Android test folder still did not appear in the external media’s test folder.
My guess about problem: This leads me to believe I have the correct paths of each folder, but there’s still some issue about writing to the external storage media. I’ve tried creating empty .stfolder text file and empty .stfolder directory in external storage media but still no success.
