Full sync with drive(s) offline
« on: January 18, 2022, 08:54:47 AM »
Hi all

Mac 10.14.6

If a drive is offline then full sync stops at 98% through looking for missing files so I have to reconnect that drive whenever I need to update the catalog after metadata changes - that's quite often.

The suggested solution is to exclude the folders on the drive that is not available. I can edit the folder list before syncing but it's a long and complicated list in a cramped window so that's a slow process and remounting the drive(s) will usually be quicker. As nothing can have changed on those drives it shouldn't really be necessary.

It would be better if PM+ would either skip missing drives and report that on completion or at least pause and ask the user how to proceed. Please can I make this a feature request?

Regards
David Hoffman
