    Default Sync notification icon appearing by ifself

    a few days ago, I noticed that the Sync notification bar icon, that i only ever noticed before when checking for new messages in GMail app, starts appearing for a few seconds every time i turn on any data connection. It also then shows up every now and then after that, as long as a data connection is available. Does anyone have any clue why this would now be happpning? I belive the only recent change i did recently was update ES file explorer (which needed 1 new permission since i updated it last time some months ago).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It's syncing new data with the device, that's all. Nothing to worry about, unless if you don't wanted to sync data, which can be disabled from system settings - accounts.

    OK so it turns out i didn't have Sync turned on in the first place. So this is still quite strange.
