how to specify spaces in folder names ?


I just started Syncthing today to sync my old Synology box to new FreeNAS and I love it already ! Simple setup !

One issue I cannot find in docs or forum is I want to sync a folder with my Time Machine backups. The folder is called “/volume1/Time Machine/” or /volume1/Time\ Machine/ on the synology. I have tried this format and quotes and quotes around “Time Machine”, but cannot get it to work. I always get folder does not exist.

Any ideas ?

Do you mean the folder path, rather than the folder name?

Regardless, you should just enter it without any magic.

/volume1/Time Machine

However, FreeNAS does a lot of interesting things with process jails and permissions. Syncthing might just not be able to access the volume even though you entered it correctly.

Thanks for the answer, going to try that. I have the permissions and jails figured out I think, since I am syncing another folder…
