I have a folder/library that is synced in read-only mode. I work with elementaryOS a derivate of ubuntu 16.04. Linux run on ext3 formated disk partition. The synced folder on my machine is on a disk that is formated in ntfs file-system and accessed with Paragon ufsd driver. The disk is automounted on boot up. I use the current Seafile Client from the official ppa repository, the server is a Pro version hosted by my University. I have no controll/admin-access to the server installation.
When I synced the read-only library yesterday after a while (The Seafile Client did not work at all and yesterday I finally got it work again) I got for some minutes error messages stating that I changed files and these files will not be updated to the server (which is what I expect from a read-only sync if I really changed something). I think I did not change anything but thougt that due to the long period I did not sync maybe something went wrong.
I therefor decided to cancel the sync, disconnect the folder/library and start a new sync of the read-only library to an empty new folder. The sync itself worked fine but now I get on every system start-up (i.e. start of Seafile Client) for about 3 Minutes a series of sync-error messages seemingly for each of the files in the folder. I am absolutely sure that I did not change any of the files. When looking at the folder on OS level the only thing “new” I can see is, that linux generated the subfolders in the synced library/folder and these folders are dated with yesterdays day of creation.
How can I delete these anoying and missleading error messages and prevent new ones to appear when new files are synced to my computer?
Are these error messages regular behavior of Seafile client or did something went wrong with my specific configuration?
