Plex media to sync already exists on player device




I am using a Qnap as plex server and the windows 10 Plex app on my laptop as a player.

The media in Plex stored on my NAS server is also backed up on my laptop.

Is there a way that I can get to sync all the media in the Plex windows app for local use without actually having to sync it? Since it already exists on the device where I want to sync to.

For example by moving all the existing media on the laptop to the sync folder in windows explorer?

(I realize I could set up a second server on my laptop but that is not really something I want).

Thank you!
