*The Sync Issues folder and its subfolders (Conflicts, Local Failures, and Server Failures) are optional and are not synchronized between client and server. These folders are used in one possible implementation for handling synchronization errors that occur during bulk data transfer. This implementation involves moving the problem items into an unsynchronized folder, such as Conflicts, Local Failures, or Server Failures. By moving the items to a folder that is not synchronized, the error does not continue to occur during each subsequent synchronization.
