I used the previous Real Media Library extension

If you have used already the built-in WP Real Media Library extension you navigate to WP/LR Sync > Extensions. Make sure you have still ticked “Real Media Library” in extensions and click the button Reset with Extensions. This does remove all the RML folders which where already synced with your media library (it does not delete attachments from WP itself). Afterwards untick the RML extension, save, activate the WP/LR Sync Folders plugin and do Resync with Extensions.
