Android WiFi sync folder location

Post by dragancla » Tue Apr 08, 2014 6:29 pm

Hi,

How do I sync my music folder on my HDD with Android over WiFi?

I currently store music on my Android in /sdcard1/music and apparently when I select External Storage I can't choose which folder to sync to... I tried downloading a few files but after a couple of refreshes I didn't see any of them on my phone. I have almost the same music on my phone and my PC so I was stunned when it didn't detect that I allready have 95% of the files already on my phone and that it wanted to do a full sync.

So, my questions are:

1. How do you change the external storage folder location on Android? I can only select Internal or External storage but none of them allow me to change which folder on External or Internal storage I want to sync to...
2. If changing the location doesn't work, what's the default folder for the sync on Android so I can copy my music folder there?

In MMW you go to the Device Profile (Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync) and send up where files need to be synced.

So, for example, if the music on my PC that I want to sync is in D:/Music/Phone and music on my phone is in sdcard1/Music, what exactly do I need to do?

So far, I've set up only what folder my PC will sync (Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync > Auto-Sync (--->Device)). Can't find which files on the phone to sync and where...

EDIT: I'm guessing it should set up in Auto-Sync (--->Library) but it's always empty. That may only work for USB Sync and not for WiFi Sync?

In the Options tab in the Device Profile there is File Locations where you set where on the device files should be synced to.
