This is the very first time that I have encountered this error. Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this is in my test environment, however hard I try .
To sum up, there was a folder shared between Device A (SR) and Device B (RO). It had some contents ignored with exclusions using patterns, such as
I removed the whole
folder1 on Device A. Device B complained about “Local Additions”. I then cleared all ignore patterns on Device B. This ended up deleting the whole
folder1 on Device B too.
However, Syncthing is still complaining about the “Local Additions”, even though the all files are physically gone together with the
folder1. Trying to revert them leads to the following errors.
Revert: deleting folder1/folder2: removing item to be replaced: CreateFile folder1: The system cannot find the path specified.
The GUI is stuck in the following state.
Since I cannot reproduce the problem in my test environment, this is all I can present right now. Do you have any idea what could have caused this situation? I can add that I have not manipulated any files on Device B manually. Everything was done either through synchronisation or through the Web GUI.
Also, when trying to revert the local additions, Syncthing keeps complaining about their parent folder gone. Obviously, if the parent is no longer present, the children cannot be present either. However, it seems to keep trying to do something with the children, and then fails in the process.
Both sides run Syncthing v1.18.0 (custom built).
