I am rather paranoid about manually moving my synchronized folder (“sync target”) and then re-establishing synchronization between the sync source and that moved target folder. Specifically, I need to move my synchronized folder to another hard drive.
There’s already some threads about it, however I’m not entirely sure which way to go:
As far as I know, for example, the date of file folders is changed by Windows when they are moved, to the time they were moved, at least when moving to another hard drive.
Now I’m afraid that this will cause folders and possibly also files from the synchronization target to be overwritten in the synchronization source, because the target suddenly contains thousands of apparently brand-new folders.
Many thanks for all ideas on how to move a synchronized folder (sync target) so that there is no risk of damaging the sync source, especially not by mass-overwriting it with files/folders from the target.
