The issue you are facing:

I wanted to do a clean resincronization deleting all files from server but instead got my all local files deleted despite i selected the option in the client, “Keep Local files.”

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Windows Client Logged but disconected from VPN
  2. Delet All Files from the server through Web Interface
  3. Conect VPN and automatically all local files are deleted
