I appreciate your and everyone’s patience.
I believe that my current sync processes are running as intended. I am only syncing one way at the moment, as far as my most important sync folder goes.
The problem is that a few weeks ago, I probably deleted thousands, possibly tens of thousands of files from a c*mpany’s server because I didn’t know what I know now.
The thing that is killing me is that I have no proper way to find out what was deleted and what was not.
I really think a mass deletion warning should be implemented.
Which one is more annoying? ST deleting thousands of files in a frenzy or ST telling you dude I am about to delete 80% of your share, is that ok with you?
I am now dependent on tools such as searching for empty folders on the server in question:
This way I found over 1000 empty folders in the sync source folder – where each of them should contain at least one file.
Is it normal that Syncthing only deleted (thousands of) files, but left the empty folders that had contained the files behind?
