Folder not synchronised


I am using syncthing to synchronize a folder with 2012 subfolders on PC with W10.

The last 7 subfolders (the more recent)are not synchronized (notdiscovered by syncthing).

I have already checked all access parameters.

What can be the problème?

Thanks in advance for your help

How do you know they haven’t been discovered? Did you try clicking the rescan button?

Yes I click several time to rescan and rescan all button with no result except (these folder are stll not seen)

I discovered this problem by checking the number of subfolders in W10 files explorator and comparing with Syncthing result. Then I discovered that the more recent subfolders (September 2018) were not taken into accound by syncthing.

Can you post screenshots from both sides?

Impossible to send screenshot message “Sorry, new users can only put one image in a post.”


I assume you know syncthing didn’t discover these recent subdirectories, because they are not transferred to remote devices?

Is there anything related to those directories or are there any errors in the logs? If you don’t find anything, can you enable scanner debug logging (actions->logs->facilities) and press the rescan button. Then check again for log lines mentioning the directories in question. Or just share the logs here.

No thing observed in logs about these folders with scanner on

Some observations to be added:

On the same PC W10 I have an other synchronized folder PC <==> NAS) and all things works perfectly

On the other Folder (IMAGES DC) (PC W10 <==> NAS) it seems that even if syncthing seems to analyse the contenu (subfolders and files) no change are taken into account even removing 100 subfolders. All thing seems to be stuck since 13th of September.

Is there any way to reinitialyze this folder? Or this folder has to be removed and re added? Is there any configuration file for this folder to be erase?

Thank you for your help

If you enable scanner debug logging and press rescan, there must be some output related to IMAGES DC. can you post that please.

Find here after some data

Is the screenshot of the folder properties and the ui from the same device?

Also, it seems one is h:/images the other one is h:/danielle/images…

You are wrigth. There was an error on Folder path. The correct one with all sub forder modifications is H:/images The incorrect one was h:/danielle/images

Is it possible to modify the incorrect folder path without removing this folder? I cannot change the path on PC because the data are used by an other software.

Why is removing and re-adding the folder not an option for you? Removing the folder just cleans up the database, does not remove the content.

OK I try to do so

Announced Scan Time Remaining 6 Hours for 256Gb…

I will check the result to morrow morning

Thanks a lot for your help

All things OK Thank you
