You’ll have to use Ignore Patterns on device 2 & 3 to select which files you want to download. So for example, if you have 2 separate folders for movies and series in your share, you could do it like this:
I’ll assume the folder for your movies is called “Movies” and is located in the root of the shared folder (in the same folder as the hidden “.stfolder” folder). Then you’ll have to add the ignore rule: /Movies
This means that this device will ignore that folder and not download it at all.
You’ll have to do the same here, but instead ignoring the folder with your series. I’ll assume it’s called “Shows”, so you’ll have to use the ignore pattern /Shows
Don’t hesitate asking if my post is unclear or you need more help
Do you want to exclude the entire folder or specific files? Because those rules are excluding files, not the folder.
Is /movies-radarr/tv-sonarr and /tv-sonarr/movies-radarr the paths containing your files? If so you would want your ignore rules to be
However, all this depends on where the top-most folder is.
The .stfolder is a hidden folder which specifies that a folder is a Syncthing share, in other words, this is the top-most (root) folder. You can check the path to the root in the GUI where it says “Folder path”.
So let’s say for example that your “Folder path” in the GUI is C:\Users\bm5519\Sync. This means that the folder called Sync is the root folder which contains all the shared files. Now inside that folder, let’s say you have a folder called foo, and inside that one you have bar. bar contains all files you don’t want. So to ignore bar you would have to specify your ignore pattern as
As you see, do not include the root folder Sync in the pattern.
So if whatbox torrents is your root, and inside that you have /movies-radarr/tv-sonarr, then the ignore rule is simply
Now that folder won’t be synced
I have never used a NAS, so I’m not sure, sorry
