On our SeaFile Server PE 7.1.6 I have a Library shared with all (Read Only).
I then created a directory in it and gave RW permissions to a Group.
These people can easily manage files as they want in that folder from the web interface. They also can see the Library/folder via SeaDrive 2.0.x.
However when they try to write to this folder via SeaDrive they cannot. Even more strange, SeaDrive gives out no error, the “sync” icon in Windows is green (see attachment) but on the web the uploaded files/directories do not appear at all.
SeaDrive logs tell nothing, just a bunch of
sync state transition from 'committing' to 'synchronized' and
sync state transition from 'synchronized' to 'committing'.
No error at all, no log about the ‘missing’ files (not uploaded to the server).
I suspect there are issues with SeaDrive respecting the access permissions in a RO library.

What is on the server via web interface:
