I know the “folder marker missing” error has been discussed many times, but I couldn’t find a thread specific to this case.
I had a shared folder, which I want to move its path. I remove the Shared Folder from SyncThing, then on another remote PC, I un-share it & re-share it, so I get the notification back on the PC where I want to do the move. I accept the notification & input the new path. As soon as I do, I get the “folder marker missing” error. I’m 100% certain the path is right. If I then manually create the folder marker, it shows “out of sync,” and will not proceed with the sync.
If I follow the same procedure but give it the path of an empty folder, it’s the same result.
At this point, I can’t seem to find any way to recreate this shared folder on the PC where it was removed - when I accept the share invitation, no matter where I put it: original path, new path with original files, new path with empty folder - it always gives me this error.
If I create a brand new shared folder (different folder id), it works fine.
Why will it not allow me to recreate this previously-removed shared folder?
