Hi there! I would like to use Syncthing for Downloading pictures from the Phone to the PC, and to upload other files like music to the SD Card of the Phone in a convenient way (i.e. without removing the SD Card from my phone every time).
I recently heard about Syncthing and thought that’s exactly the thing I need. However, when I select any folder on my SD Card, I can only select the folder type as “send only”. When I click on it, it says: “Your Android version only grants Syncthing readonly access to the selected folder.” However, when I select a folder not on the external SD Card but on my device memory, it works and I can set it to “Send & Receive”. But my device memory is very limited, I really need to upload stuff to my SD Card.
Can somebody help me figuring out the problem? Am I using it wrongly, did I oversee something? Is it a bug which will be fixed? Or is the problem known and accepted? If so, is there a way to fix it in the syncthing source code?
I tried Syncthing-Fork in Version 0.14.51.7 and Syncthing in Version 0.10.14 both from F-Droid, and both show the same behavior. My Android version is 7.0 and I am using a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.
I really would appreciate some help, since I also did find nothing on the internet concerning this problem. I’ve seen this post where the problem is shortly mentioned in the discussion but this was not very informative and thus not a big help for me.
