Possible to skip subfolder which is a bind-mount?


Despite my readings and searchs, I couldn’t determine what would the behavior of Syncthing if in my shared folder a subfolder is actually a bind-mount. Will Synchting sync its content as if it was a normal folder, will it skip it, etc.? Also, is there any way to change that behavior?

What I would like to do is to avoid to sync its content. Is that possible?

Thank for your help and Best Wishes for 2021!

Bind-mounts will be synchronized fully. You cannot change that, but you can ignore specific files/folders.

Thank you @wweich. Do you know what’s about for symbolic links toward folders?

For Windows, there is also the new advanced setting junctionsAsDirs regarding folder junctions, but it is apparently not documented yet.
