Plex Android Sync - Storage not freeing up after deleting sync.
I have some issues with sync. I sync a number of libraries/playlists to my android phone, plus I sync my entire music library (about 100GB) so I can listen when there is no internet on my phone.
With the new update for Android, I decided to delete the Music sync, and resync with the newly available "Original Quality" setting (rather than 320kbps). There are now 2 issues with this:
1: (minor) - I noticed that in the web ui, under activity --> sync, there is no option to sync Music at Original quality, and in fact it says it is syncing at 192Kbps. I think this is a cosmetic issue though, as I noticed that most sync items were not being sent for conversion (except for some m4a files).
2: (major, for me) - when I deleted the old Music sync, I expected to see space being freed up. But somehow it's cached, and not re-usable. I have restarted server, restarted app, still same issue. I even went as far as "delete all sync'd content" (which was a faff, since I didn't want to resync my other libraries again), that just made the problem worse - more space not being freed up.
Finally the solution is to uninstall plex from Android, and re-install. I don't want to keep doing this every time I manually delete a sync item.
Does anyone have an alternative solution here? Is there an open feature request to "clear cache" that's in the pipeline? If not - how to I raise it?
