I’ve got a large folder that synced between quite a few users, and some of them have been running out of disk space to host that folder.
Consequently we added some subfolders to the Ignore Patterns for items which weren’t needed by these users, then deleted the subfolders from their systems.
This has generally worked well - but is now producing an error on other systems which do sync these folders:
directory has been deleted on a remote device but is not empty; the contents are probably ignored on that remote device, but not locally
So the diagnosis is entirely correct - but it leaves this ‘master’ copy of the folder in an Out of Sync state.
If a subfolder is ignored, then deleted - then surely the deletion should be ignored too - thus not causing an error on other systems?
