I have an Android phone with 64GB of storage and I take a lot of pictures and video (parent young kids). Whenever my phone storage space starts getting full, I transfer the files to my NAS server (also backup on Google Photos). Rather than manually transferring the files to my NAS, I figure I give ST a try. I setup Syncthing on my Android phone and selected my Camera folder. It was set to “Send Only”. I then shared the folder to my desktop computer and starting syncing to my NAS. ST then started deleting all of my photos and videos that were not on my phone! Luckily, I have another backup of this data on an external drive. I disabled ST and restored my data to the NAS.
I did not expect ST to delete data on my NAS, since the Android folder share was setup as “Send Only”. Is it possible to use ST as a backup solution in my situation?
