Error message appears for a Synchronization job:
When deploying a Synchronization job, each agent creates .sync folder in the root of the directory chosen for this job. It's a hidden folder and it contains the following:
- ID file (folder identifier, by which the agent recognizes the folder it needs to sync);
- IgnoreList (a test document for ignoring and whitelisting files);
- StreamsList (a whitelist for files alternate streams and extended attributes);
- Archive folder (directory that stores deleted files and their old versions).
Deletion or corruption of the whole .sync folder or ID file results in "Cannot identify destination folder".
To fix it remove the agent from this job and add it back.
