Yes that would be the normal assumption.
I select view syncronisation in the site config and the winsftp show the default directories as set in the site config on session start. Then I would like the home button selected and sync browsing is turned on then open the home and other local syncronised directory. In other words a way to return to synconrisation after being unsynced.
At the moment when sync is on for the site and a session is started it works. Then if one of the folders is out of the sync range a warning shows up. However then the only way to get back to sync (even toggling sync on and off doesnt return to the sync folders), is to manually navigate to get the correct sync folders for both remote and local and then turn on sync and its back on. Sometimes i have sync button active but sync is not, then a change of folder can trigger multiple "i am going to create new folders for you every step". Very confusing in my humble opinion.
I do hope this makes sense.
If sync is in the site cfg file (yes like this, currently on session open as sync button is active and folders display correctly)
If sync is turned off or disabled because either local or remote is going out of bounds ( yes working correctly and message displays), then sync tuned back on, then directories should become sync again. (NO not working like this currently)
If home button is pressed when sync is turned on then home and remote sync home should display sync folders again. (No not working like this currently )
If sync is off and home button pressed then only remote home should be returned. (yes this works like this now)
Hope clear with this detail.
I have tried 5.8.2b and 5.7.7 release versions.
