First off, I’ve really been loving Syncthing lately. I’ve used it to chain together a bunch of my devices for automatically backing up photos and documents. Thanks for all the hard work everyone has put into this project!
I’m not entirely sure if I’ve missed a toggle somewhere, but I’ve noticed an oddity around sharing send-only, receive-only, and send-and-receive folders to other devices. To my mind, it would make sense that if I have a Send Only folder on a device and I choose to share it with another device that has the origin device set to auto-accept, it should set the status of that folder it creates as Receive Only, rather than defaulting to Send and Receive. Or if I create a Receive Only folder on this device and share it with my other devices, they should create a Send Only folder on their end. For some reason, this doesn’t seem to be the case, but I also can’t seem to find a toggle or switch anywhere to fix this. This means that if I want to create something that only pulls to one device from all others, I’ll need to manually correct this on each device otherwise they’ll start sending data between each other, when I only want it to flow in one direction (hence choosing send/receive explicitly).
Is this something anyone else has had to deal with? I can’t tell if this is a bug or an oversight, but either way, this seemed like the best place to drop it.
