Having a pile of files in there which shouldn't have changed is just a distraction.

Will file a report with Avid as suggested.

What you mentioned is just the beginning.
There are much larger files that will inevitably have their properties changed and subsequently need to be re-uploaded.

For example, every time you import .wav files (or other format) into a session or make an edit, all those .wav files will be uploaded again because of the unique identifiers Pro Tools stamps onto the files.
So the doc files having to re-upload are the least of what's to occur when backing up PT session files online.

I have a whole folders of guitar tracks recorded outside of PT I've backed up.
The moment I import those files into PT (without copying or renaming), they will all have to be freshly uploaded to reflect those changes. This of course happens automatically but needs to happen before it can sync.

Quick auto-syncing usually only happens when simply renaming or moving synced files.
But if Pro tools stamps everything with new identifiers, it all has to be re-upped & synced again.
Not mention a new WaveCache.

Just run the service and let it do its thing in the background while sleeping or out enjoying the sunshine.
Advice I have to regularly give myself.

Default Re: Documentation Folder updates

Well I finally got round to trying the suggestions in the Avid case (essentially changing the location of the Documentation Folder, but couched in confused and complex instructions) and of course it continued to do the same thing. So I replied to the email and got

"Closed cases cannot be updated or reopened."

Of course not. Why would you possibly ever want to reopen a closed case?

I will log a new one.
