I am running v0.10.2 on a Synology DS214.
I have three folders-- two of which are subfolders of the first, i.e. the folder structure is as follows
I also have machines NAS, Linux1, Linux2, Android1, Android2
A is shared with NAS, Linux1, Linux2
B is shared with NAS, Linux1, Linux2, Android1
C is shared with NAS, Linux1, Linux2, Android2
Folder B seems to work perfectly, whereas Folder C and Folder A both give “folder marker missing” errors on the NAS, but are fine on Linux1 and Linux2.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that Linux1 and Linux2 are running v0.10.1
Why are you sharing B and C between NAS, Linux1 and Linux2 when they already have those folders as part of A? Is there something weird here that I’m missing?
I want to make sure that all three machines end up with the data; Redundancy.
Yes… But if NAS, Linux1 and Linux2 are already sharing A, they also have B and C which are subfolders. So no need to explicitly share B and C once more?
I don’t see why doing so would break in the way you describe, but it’s going to be very confusing for syncthing anyhow. For example a change in B would also be a change in A, so it would try to sync the same change twice…
Okay, I removed the broen folder and added them only sharing with the machines once (BTW, Folder B was not shared in the way I said) and everthing seems to work. So, I guess the problem was the complex sharing.
You should have just created a empty file called
.stfolder in B and C and it would have been fixed.
Did you have some problems with these two folders as you were upgrading?
In fact, it was A and C that were the problems, but no I had no troubles.
It’s strange that the upgrade process did not create the marker.
Perhaps you added them after the upgrade and that’s where the bug hides?
