SmugMug Windows Uploader has created 2 Windows Auto Upload Folders.
Please see the attached image.
As you can see the Windows auto uploader program has created 2 folders, one of which is password-protected, one which is not.
Both of them contain different subfolders and galleries and are a mess of nested folders. I have double and triple-checked the folders I am uploading and they are nicely organized and should have been mirrored on the site but the auto uploader seems to have had a mind of its own at some point.
One folder is set to private, and the one with the lock icon has a password on it.
In some cases, in both folders, a new folder is created containing a gallery of images, and then further down under that folder is a different gallery of images from the same folder on my windows machine.
Interestingly none of the files seem to be duplicated, they just uploaded to random different locations.
You can also see that the uploader is uploading the $RECYCLE.BIN file. I would have thought the devs would have ensured to ignore that folder.
I hate to have to go through and manually sort all of this just to have the uploader come through and smash it all up again.
Is there a better way to doing things here with the SmugMug uploader other than selecting the folders I want as per the documentation and letting the site folders be auto-created and maintained by the program?
My only other thought is to use an automation system to move the files I want to be uploaded to Smugmug to a single folder and have the auto uploader only watching that single folder and uploading as required, but then that defeats the purpose of the organization.
Thank you in advance for your ideas.
