When using regular Google Drive, the folder Shared with me is not synced at all. This is the way I like it (I add all the files I want into my Drive and organize them as I wish). Unfortunately, with odrive the folder is synced, which is 1) a mess; 2) takes up drive space as all the files from Shared with me are now twice on my harddrive.
Can I set odrive to ignore the Shared with me folder completely?
If you want to exclude t he Shared With Me folder, you can keep it as a placeholder file (.cloudf). This will prevent anything inside from syncing. If you have already expanded it you can right-click->unsync it to turn it back into a placeholder.
Thanks for the quick answer. This is one solution I tried, but it does not suit me well. Once in a while, I want to just sync the entire Google Drive account, including subfolders, and this syncs the Shared with me folder as well. That means I have to unsync it over and over again, which is annoying. Any other solution?
There isn’t really a way to completely exclude a folder from sync within odrive., at this time, but it is something we plan to support in the future.
Ok, thanks for the info anyway.
Any news about this feature? Because I really need it
We added an advanced setting for excluding items from sync. This is a premium feature. https://docs.odrive.com/docs/sync-changes#section--custom-ignore-list-blacklist-
You can exclude the “Shared With Me” folder by opening up the odrive_user_premium_conf.txt file in the root of your odrive folder and replacing one of the examples listed under " blackListNames". For example, replace “thumbs.db” with “shared with me”.
