I had been using my Download folder on my laptop to sync to Google Docs. I changed the name of the folder on Google Docs from Downloads to Downloads t510, and syncing is no longer occuring. Do folder names need to remain the same? Thanks!
Changed Folder Name in Google Docs...No Sync(7 posts) (2 voices)
No, if you change the folder name, it should change it locally. Is the local folder name still the same?
It Changed the name of the folder on the G: Drive on my laptop. It did not alter the actual file which is my User:Name/Downloads. Also, the syncing between google docs and the laptop downloads have stopped. Other folders that are set up for syncing are still working. Also, the downloads folder is checked for syncing under the Advanced Preferences FOLDERS menu. Thanks!
Perhaps you have changed the syncing folder to a child of the main folder you thought you were syncing?
In the Syncdocs Preferences menu, what is the name of the folder that you are syncing?
If you open this folder in Explorer, then it should be the same as your G Drive.
I was syncing the upload from my laptop's DOWNLOADS folder to Google Docs. In Google Docs I made the DOWNLOADS folder a Sub-Folder of my LAPTOP FOLDER. It then stopped syncing. Am I to assume that folder syncing requires the folders to be 1st tier collections? Thanks again.
No, it syncs all sub-collections. When you select what can sync, on the selective sync menu you can only select 1st tier collections.
Is your Downloads folder the same as your G Drive?
My Downloads folder is the same as my G Drive. I Created a 1st tier folder/collection on Google to distinguish my downloads from my laptop from downloads folder from my desktop. I then made my laptop download folder a sub-folder under that collection folder. No syncing occurred after I made the laptop downloads folder a subfolder under that collection. If I go to SyncDocs Preferences and create a sync there for my downloads folder to Google Docs it will actively sync files as a 1st tier folder/collection. Thanks again....much appreciated.
