Confused - linked folder

I’m confused — as usual.

I’ve got a hierarchy of folder with text files that I wanted to link to DT. The hierarchy is simple

mainfolder
year1
month1
month2
month3
year2
month1
year3
month1
month2

I first linked the mainfolder from within DT Pro and everything seemed to be just OK. Then I added more stuff, synchronized and discovered two things:

  • All new text files are imported into DT, not linked

  • If a year has only one month folder, as year 2 above, then the text files ends up directly below the year folder, that is no ‘month1’ folder is available in DT. If I add a second folder and synchronize then everything is OK again.

I’m sure I missing something basic here but what?

For the text files, I don’t know. But for the “missing folder”, go to preferences>import>general, and uncheck the option “optimize hierarchy”. Hope this solves half of the problem.
