Receive Only folder redownloading locally deleted files

I use Syncthing as a one way transfer between computer A (Send Only) and B (Receive Only). Files originating on computer A are sent to B then moved to their final resting place outside of the Syncthing folder.

Before when I would do this moved files wouldn’t redownload from A. Now on my new install of Syncthing (v1.27.3, Docker) whenever I move a file out of the Receive Only folder it immediately redownloads.

I feel like there’s something simple I’m missing, but I’m not sure what.

Are you running Syncthing with the default configuration or have you tweaked or enabled any more advanced settings? Specifically, is syncing external attributes enabled?

Everything should be default. All I’ve done is add the folders. Sync/Send Extended Attributes are turned off on all my folders.

Please provide screenshots from both sides.

I did a fresh install on both sides and this appeared to resolve the issue. I’m not sure what happened, but it’s working now.
