When sharing a folder with a user, it should not be automatically synced by the sync client.
When a folder gets shared with a user then the sync client automatically starts syncing that folder. There seems to be a check so that huge folders don't get synced automatically. However, when the folder gets shared while it's still empty, the client assumes that it's okay to activate the syncing due to a minimal size. When that folder gets filled with files later on, the sync client sticks to its previous decision.

Otherwise, cool feature, thanks for doing a pull request, I hope we can find time to review it soon - sorry that that takes so long, we're a small team!
Leaving a reply here to get updates if this get's 'fixed'. Can do the above of course, but not really intuitive for non-tech users. When choosing to essentually sync everything, there should be a way to completely deselect the root folder and select individual folders, instead of having to manually add individual folders, or even a tick box that asks users if they would like to download a shared folder.
