I have encountered this problem quite a few times. This only seems to happen when accepting new folders, and only when they are set to Receive Only.
Basically, after adding a folder and allowing it to download everything, the state is as follows.
“Revert Local Changes” does not work.
Reverting folder 0x9b4180 Revert: directory has been deleted on a remote device but is not empty; the contents are probably ignored on that remote device, but not locally
Now, this what I have found out and also what I am suspecting.
Changing the folder type to SR and then back to RO fixes the problem. Why it does so, I have no idea.
Clearing ignore patterns on the receiving side does not help.
I have the following ignore patterns in the folder on the sending side, which I think may cause this behaviour.
!folder/file1 !folder/file2 folder
foldermatches the actual folders listed in the “Local Additions”. However, I would still need to reproduce this behaviour in a clean installation to have hard proof though. Still, if this is really the culprit, then why would changing the folder type back and forth make any difference? Perhaps because files inside
folderon the sending side have changed while the folder is being downloaded? Just throwing out some ideas…
What do you think about what is going on here?
