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".
