Fail Safe for Accidental Changes

Fail Safe for Accidental Changes

New member | Level 2

We recently had a user boot up an old laptop that immediately tried to sync thousands of changes to our shared folder, adding, deleting, or moving massive numbers of folders and files.  There should be a fail safe when a computer tries to sync large numbers of files this way, e.g. "you are trying to sync a large number of files; are you sure you want to make these changes?"

This sounds painful, to help gauge how widespread this issue is I'm going to move this to "needs more votes" and see if the idea gathers upvotes. Thanks for the idea and input @EliseACCT , if you still need help rectifying this please dont hesitate to reach out with a support ticket and I'll ensure it's prioritised for you.
