It would be useful if Media Sync could have a way to realize that something changed on the storage target, such as when one deletes content to make room for a sync. Right now unless I'm missing something the following process is what occurs,

1) Media Sync complains that the sync cannot proceed as the target has insufficient free space
2) Delete files off of the target to make room
3) Media Sync doesn't know (2) occurred. Unmount the storage and remount.
4) Media Sync now knows that something changed on the target.
5) Start the sync

Suggest adding a button to force Media Sync to retest the target. It would appear that right now this is only done when the target is mounted. I would guess that it is also possible to quit Media Sync and restart it...

This is a nice suggestion. I'll make a note of having this added for a future version.

For what it's worth, if you want to delete content in a way that Media Sync will recognize, try Summary -> Browse -> Delete.

Best.
