Drive: More granular controls when designating a file as Marked for Offline
I tried to select particular folders to sync, but found that other folders that I had not selected were then trying to sync. I tried to stop them syncing, to find that then stopped the folders I was trying to sync. After going backwards and forwards a few times, Box Drive crashes.
I just want this feature to work as it should, syncing just the folders I want and leaving the rest as online access only.
What is happening is that when you click on a folder to select it and then mark it for offline, it is fine.
The issue where all content is marked/unmarked for offline happens when you do not click on the item first to select it and instead go straight for the right click to mark for offline. What this does – when an item is not selected and you are choosing to mark for offline – it acts as if the parent folder is the one selected – meaning everything in the parent folder gets marked/unmarked for offline.
