It will remove the folder (and all its photos) from Mylio’s database. Which is “global” to all devices that share your Mylio library. The underlying folder & files will remain in the file system, but the entries are deleted from the Mylio catalog.
It’s a little incongruous that you can get to this “global” command by drilling down thru a device-specific Dashboard menu. But you can also get there at least 2 other ways:
- Under Folders, select that folder and choose
Organize -> Remove Folder from Catalog
Edit -> Settings -> Source Folders, click OFF the folder you no longer want in the catalog
I think of Mylio as a replicated file system. Changes on one device are generally reflected everywhere.
I’m not aware of any direct way to EXCLUDE individual files/folders from syncing to specific devices (other than large documents or videos). You can INCLUDE individual files to sync by choosing
Device Quality -> Show Customizations, and then choosing ratings, color labels, or keywords for which you want to sync Previews and/or Originals to that device. If you have that set up, then you could exclude a file from being synced to that device by removing a keyword or rating, for example.
And keep in mind - Mylio ALWAYS syncs at least Thumbnails for EVERY file, to EVERY device.
