Can I move or rename a syncing folder?

Yes! You can move and rename folders in your file browser (Finder on Mac, or Windows Explorer on Windows). Sync will keep track of the changes and keep syncing the files and folders inside. However, there are a couple of limitations:

- Renaming a folder will only affect the device where it is renamed. Other devices will not be updated with the new name.
- On Windows and Mac, you can only move folders within the same drive (the same logical partition). If you want to move a folder to a new partition, you can disconnect the folder, then reconnect it in the new location.
- On Linux, you can move files within the Sync parent folder only. 
- Mobile platforms do NOT support moving files.
