I have a really bad feeling that there’s a very simple solution to my .stignore issue, would be grateful for any help.
I have a large directory with many sub-directories, each having many sub-directories themselves. I only want to sync a few of these directories and its contents. Here’s an outline -
Directory A/Sub-Directory 01 Directory A/Sub-Directory 02 Directory B/Sub-Directory 01 Directory B/Sub-Directory 02 Directory C/Sub-Directory 01 Directory C/Sub-Directory 02
Let’s say I only want to sync ‘Directory A/Sub-Directory 02’ and ‘Directory C/Sub-Directory 02’, and I want them to maintain the same structure (i.e. I want to sync ‘Directory A’ and have its ‘Sub-Directory 02’ within it, and then sync 'Sub-Directory 02’s contents as well). Everything else can be ignored.
So my desired result would be that Syncthing syncs the following directories and the files they contain -
Directory A/Sub-Directory 02/ Directory C/Sub-Directory 02/
I would have thought that the following .stignore would work, but it seems to be ignoring everything.
!/Directory A/Sub-Directory 02 !/Directory C/Sub-Directory 02 **
Am I misunderstanding .stignore here, or trying to use it in a way it’s not meant to work? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
