    Hello to all,
    I am a heavy user of GoodReader, since it is highly versatile and provides me with a means to set up a file system. What's still most bothering is the file transfer: you can't transfer folders via iTunes (you must resort to zip files, which kinda works but takes lots of time).
    Instead I am trying to minimize file transfers by synchronising my GoodReader folders with my Google Drive folders.
    However, I am repeatedly getting the following error:
    "Cant start the sync - file names are inconsistent. The following remote file has a duplicate with the same name" - and then some random file name.
    Why is this such an obstacle, and what can I do about it?

    By the way: What would be the fastest way to get like 50 GB to the iPad/iPhone? I have the iPad Pro 9.7, so very high memory speeds but still lightning. Would a powerful WiFi transfer be more effective?

    Thanks for your replies.
