Hey @kubrick2020, I hope you enjoy your Wednesday! 

It sounds like you're referring to our selective sync feature.

Keep in mind that each device is unique, and so are the settings.

You'd need to manually choose the folders you want synced locally to the device. This way you'd set up the new device to mimic the old one.

Can you try this, and let me know how it goes?
