What is a top-level folder?

A top-level folder are files or folders that appears at node level 1. For example, there are 4 top-level folders in the screen shot you see on the left.

Top-level folders are treated slightly differently in Syncrify. For example:
  • If you delete a top-level folder from a client machine, it won't be deleted from the server even if the Delete file is checked. This is done by design to prevent unintentional deletes.
  • Every top-level folder is stored in a separate folder on the server side using the following convention:

  • When VSS is enabled (Backup locked files), Syncrify will enable VSS on one top-level folder at a time.

I'm testing Syncrify to synchronize Project data distributed into two separate server. Both servers has same folder structure, as following : ServerA->ProjectX>Document control->FilesIN ServerA->ProjectX>Document control->FilesIN Synchronizing A <-> B creates 2 additional folders (email address and profile name) which violates the company's standards. Is there away to allow Syncrify to synchronize only the child folders under the profile path location.
