If you use foldersync and heavily rely on synching from remote into your external sd card, be warned that this is broken in marshmallow. (Synching to remote is still fine, and synching into internal memory is still fine.)

This is a known bug (see https://plus.google.com/+WangFangyi/posts/aqpddn9VE1Z ) but is not going to be fixed soon.

Also, be warned that when you upgrade to marshmallow, the phone's reference to your external SD changes names... so you'll have to update all of your folderpair configs accordingly. This is easy.

SD card Marshmallow issues ? no way ! sure it's "the way it's meant to work"... well, truth is the situation with M and external storage is quite sad.

Also, on no account try to use Format for an SD card until they repair that function. Right now, it goes to 20%, stays there, crashes, and leaves you with an SD card which at best reads as corrupted (and some devices won't see it at all). Use some other device to reformat cards for the time being.
