Certain files "Not Allowed"

Hello all… I’m having an issue where some files I am trying to sync to my Amazon Drive are placed under a menu header called “Not Allowed,” but there is no further explanation of what this is, why this is, what it means and how to resolve it.

Any ideas would be welcome!

You can open “Not allowed (86)” menu and click on individual file names to see the error causing sync error between your PC and storage cloud and take appropriate measurements to resolve the error.

That helped a lot, thank you!

How about on linux ?
python “$HOME/.odrive-agent/bin/odrive.py” status
tells me
Waiting: 0
Not Allowed: 1

How do I find which files not allowed and why ?

Hi @ttguy1,
Take a look at this post here. The bottom has info for all of the status commands on Linux: How can I use the CLI to check odrive status?

In general, you can get more information about each CLI command by adding --help at the end of it. For example:

python "$HOME/.odrive-agent/bin/odrive.py" status --help
usage: odrive.py status [-h]
                        [--mounts | --backups | --sync_requests | --uploads | --downloads | --background | --trash | --waiting | --not_allowed]
    optional arguments:
      -h, --help       show this help message and exit
      --mounts         get status on mounts
      --backups        get status on backup jobs
      --sync_requests  get status on sync requests
      --uploads        get status on uploads
      --downloads      get status on downloads
      --background     get status on background requests
      --trash          get status of trash items
      --waiting        get status of waiting items
      --not_allowed    get status of not allowed items
