multiple instances of a folder on the same device

i use syncthing on devices that support it but i also have a couple devices that dont. it would be nice if one instance of a folder on a laptop and one instance on another device’s storage when its plugged into the laptop. I have tried using another solution alongside syncthing but it doesnt know when a folder has been moved so any kind of 2 way sync just ends up with the file in both folders.

+1 for this feature.

I have at least two cases for that:

  1. syncing several clouds, like Mega, iCloud, OneDrive and Google Drive as well as with Syncthing devices
  2. auto-backuping data to different physical device

Please use the right tools for the job!

It is important to choose the most appropriate tool or method for a particular task in order to achieve the best results. Using the wrong tool or method can lead to inefficiency, poor results, or even potential harm. It is important to consider the specific needs of a task and match them with the right tool or method.

Syncthing is already quite versatile and should stay focused on what it does best.
