I have been testing ACD + odrive for past couple days to see if the combo would fit my daily workflow. While I have found solutions to most of my requirement, one thing I’m trying to achieve is to use Plex with ACD+odrive. This is something that occurred to me after finding out about odrive. My initial intend was to upload videos to ACD, have Plex build the video database while the videos are still at local storage, then unsync the folder to save space. Plex would then trigger the download/stream/sync when I browse to the video. Then I found out once I unsynced the folders, the folders and file become placeholder with cloudf and cloud extension thus caused Plex to lose the database because the files (mp4, m4v) are no longer there.
I’m curious if there’s any workaround to it? Such as keeping the folders and files with it’s original file extension while being 0-byte placeholder files? Thanks!
