Using Syncdocs 6.410, full standard license. I am trying to change which folders are synced using the "Selective Folder Sync" feature. Previously I used this feature to sync folder My Documents/Test which has several subfolders. It shows up on the Selective Folder Sync window as My Drive/Test with a check mark. I want to eliminate this sync and replace it with the subfolder My Documents/Test/Subtest. My problem is that I can't see any subfolders on the Selective Folder Sync window, in other words, the tree on that window won't expand to show any level except the first below My Drive. I tried unchecking My Drive/Test and restarting Syncdocs, then using the Add Folder button to find the My Documents/Test/Subtest folder, but when I click the OK button to add this subfolder I get the message "You are already syncing this folder, or it is the parent of the synced folder." How do I make future syncs include only the My Documents/Test/Subtest folder, and not the other subfolders within My Documents/Test?

You can unselect the folder My Documents/Test in the Folder selection menu, and then right click on My Documents/Test/Subtest and select "Upload to Google Drive".
Thanks for your reply Phil, but I can't seem to do what you suggest. I have removed the check marks for every folder that is listed in Preferences/Selective Folder Sync/Add Other and exited and restarted Syncdocs. When I open the Preferences/Selective Folder Sync window I cannot see any subfolders under My Drive/Test by right-clicking or double-clicking. So I cliok the "Add folder" button on that window, which allows me to see the the subfolders. I highlight Test/Subtest, right-click it, and upload to Google Drive, When I click OK to close out this operation it brings up the message "You are already syncing this folder, or it is the parent of the synced folder." There is no indication that Test/Subtest has been added, as all of the folders that I unchecked in the Selective Folder Sync window are still unchecked. I then start a Sync operation, and when it completes Google Drive has the Test/Subtest folder (as well as all the other folders that were synced in the past before I unchecked them on the Selective Folder Sync window), but Test/Subtest contains only older files, not newer files that were added since a prior Sync.
