I have some large media files in ‘music’ folder which is sycing and filling up my cloud account, I still want contacts and other data synced, just not ‘Music’ folder, how do I selectively set that, thanks
Thanks, but it is the ‘Music’ folder that I wish to unsync, which is not listed, is there a way to add the ‘Music’ folder to the list of 8 syncs, any idea why it is limited to just 8 ? and why can ‘Pictures and Videos’ can be ‘unsynced’, but not music ?
I have moved the music files out of the ‘Music’ Folder, but cannot see where to force a sync just for this folder, I also note though that the phone still see’s the ‘music’ even though it is now in a different folder.
Unfortunately I don’t really know how to stop that sync. I have been using VLC almost from the start (of using /e/OS) myself and my audio files never got synched - so I would not rule out that the solution lies somewhere in the standard “Music” app if you use that app.
BTW, it’s a standard feature of Android to scan the device for media contents (so that it’s ready to be found in media apps like Music), so it’s not surprising that your audio files are still “seen” in apps like Music before even though you moved them.
Thanks, OK, I’ve managed to move the sound files into a subfolder in the Documents folder and put a .nomedia file in there, and this has hidden the sound files from ‘Music’, however my Murena Cloud account still shows the sound files in its ‘Music’ folder.
Does it need to resync, I’ve left for an hour or so, but they are still there.
You may have to cleanup the Murena Cloud storage by yourself.
As a matter of precaution, you may want to download the files first, to a computer for example (hint: with more than one file selected, the “Actions” link at top of the list will download a zip file).
And please don’t forget to take out the trash (cleanup “Deleted files”).
Thanks, yes now done all that, and my qouta is back, guess the syncing works from phone > to cloud, so if you leave behind some files by moving them to a folder that has ‘.nomedia’ in it they will remain on the cloud.
Where do I do the ‘Clean up’, I can’t see a trash symbol anywhere ?
How can I disable the synchronizing?
I only see the possibility: tap to synchronize now but not how to stop it at all.
At the three dots in the upper right corner I only can choose tot sync them all at once.
I’m over all happy with e. but since the last update … it all started behaving like this.
I never store anything in whatever cloud, so I want to end this nonsense!
Thanks in advance for the tip.
