Help: Newer files overwritten by older files in Sync Troubleshooting Posted May 17, 2013 · Report reply Hi!A bit of a crisis here! I have my old pc which I now use as a back up for my new pc placed on another site and using Bittorrent Sync as the syncing method. Tonight I discovered that files from the old pc has been transferred to the new pc if the files exists on both pcs, even though the files on the new pc as newer dates! That means that the files that I have continued to update when I got my new pc suddenly is back to the old pc version.How can this happen? I was sure Bittorrent Sync should check the dates on the files and transfer the newest?I thought I would find the delete files in the .SyncTrash folder but there are none of those files there. The files are not in the Recycle bin either.I run Windows 7, is there a way to get the the files back?Thanks in advance!
