Global vs. local in Android app


When I added some ignore patterns to shared folder on android, I noticed that app is showing global counts for files and amount of data for each folder. It’s quite confusing, I would expect it to show local counts, because:

  1. It’s counter-intuitive.
  2. In my case: On computer(s) there are gigabytes of data in PhonePhotos/archive/, which is ignored by android. (When I take photo on phone, it’s stored in synced folder “PhonePhotos” shared to computers. When time comes, on computer I move photo to PhonePhotos/archive/, which effectively deletes it on phone, while still keeping it in archive on all computers.) So in app it shows I have 30GB of files in /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera, while my internal storage is like 5GB.

EDIT: Android app v0.9.6 Syncthing v0.14.22

I’ve never thought about this before, but it makes sense. Will change it to local info, unless someone has a good reason against that.
