I have the same problem. I want to make the Google Drive exactly as my local hard drive. But if I delete a file or folder in my local PC, Syncdocs does not delete that file or folder from Google Drive. I set the "sync renames, moves and deletions too (do a full sync)" to true. Please help me.
I can't delete files using SyncDocs(24 posts) (9 voices)
The most common cause of this issue is Syncdocs not running as Administrator on the PC while the program doing the deleting is running as Administrator.
This results in the Syncdocs app not having permissions to see the deletions.
To fix it, exit Syncdocs. Then right click on the Syncdocs icon and then select "Run as Administrator". Then delete the files with the other application.
I did what you suggested. But the Syncdocs must be running when I delete or change in local hard drive. I can let Syncdocs starts on Windows start up in order to watch any change. But there are still two problems:
1) I have some files and folders already on my Google Drive and want Syncdocs makes the Google Drive exactly the same as my local hard. Syncdocs is only aware of new changes from now on. The number of folders and files to be synced are too much and I can not do this manually for the first time.
2) Every time the Syncdocs starts syncing, it starts over from the beginning. I mean, if I delete or modify just one small file, Syncdocs starts to download a large amount of data from Google Drive which means too much traffic on my internet connection, and also too much CPU consumption for processing the retrieved data from Google Drive. I think there must be kind of time-stamp or something that allow Syncdocs to only updates and syncs the modified file or folder.
Yes, you need Syncdocs running to detect changes made to your local drive. The default setting is to let it run at startup.
Once Syncdocs has completed its first sync, subsequent syncs are much faster as it caches a list of files from Google Drive locally.
