What is the right way for deleting a device?

(Antonio Sánchez) #1

I have a folder that is being shared by 5 devices. One of these devices has little disk space and I want to remove it from the sharing network. But when I try, I always receive messages that other devices want to keep sharing that folder again and again. I tried to delete this device from the others, but they keep sending me sharing messages. What is the correct way to erase a device?

Unshare the folder from the other side

I did that too and it didn’t work. If I unshare the folder from the other devices, “automagically”, it appears checked again.

You have introducer enabled somewhere

I’m not familiar with “introducer”, I don’t know what is it. Is there any information about it?

Sorry, I found it: https://docs.syncthing.net/users/introducer.html?highlight=introducer
