Here is an example:
I have now a folder “Hyves” under Amazon Cloud Drive. I never put this folder here. When I started using ODrive, this folder belongs to the folder “Amazon Cloud Drive/Personal/Timeline/People/Hyves”. At a later point in time, I encrypted the Timeline-folder.
My configuration is that 3 laptops are syncing with ODrive.
When I encrypted the Timeline-folder, I had to manually copy past the contents from the unencrypted folder to the encrypted folder. When this process was done, I remove the original unencrypted folder.
In order to get the original unencrypted files on my pc, I specified the unencrypted Timeline-folder to “Sync Everything - Including Subfolders”. When the blue “ready” icon was there, I started copying everything to the encrypted folder. Later in time, I had a few cases where there were still “.cloud” and “.cloudf” files in the folder I just fully sync.
=> What would happen when you put a “cloud”-file or an “cloudf” file from an unencrypted folder to an encrypted folder? Can it cause ODrive to put some files at the root that it couldn’t copy to the encrypted folder?
Another idea that I was heaving is that the other computers that were syncing the same folders were out of sync. When they tried to sync for example the earlier mentioned folder “Hyves”, they did not know where to put it when another computer deleted it’s parent folder “Timeline”, and put it into the root folder.
