Which version of Lightroom are you using?
May I know what happens when you try to sync the parent folder and the "tent2" folder separately? While syncing the parent folder, Lightroom will not confuse the "tent2" in the tethered folder with the one outside it.

I think you have a similar problem to the "Capitals/Lowercase" dilemma seen by others.
Check this link for the posts by Jim Wilde-
And similar threads here at Adobe Communities:
The fix involves combining the two errant names [tent2 and tent2] in the Lightroom folder panel, renaming the 'combined' folder in Windows File Explorer , then back in Lightroom: re-linking (update) the 'combined' folder to the 'new' folder name.
And with respect to Akash, I do not think that doing a folder synchronization will permanently fix the problem.
Thanks for help. Yes it was the Case sensitive issue, but the fix took a couple of times to get it to work.
So glad that issue is solved! was really disrupting my work flow!
