Hi, I'm trying to recover from an extraordinary glitch in the way Sync is working with my computers. All are running Windows 10. All have the latest promoted build of Sync. I started to notice about a month ago that in some of the folders where I store images, .Conflict files were appearing. I would delete them only to find that they came back. In the past week, the issue has gone nuts. I did a search for "conflict" in File explorer to find I had over 67,000 conflict files. These were all duplicates of files that I hadn't edited in months, so it should not have been the case of files being edited and the change not being captured properly. In most instances, files were being duplicated many, many times. In some instances, I had over 900 duplicates of the same file. It wasn't unusual to see files duplicated over 500 times. I've had to disable Sync as my hard drives were being consumed. After checking carefully, I deleted the conflict files, which cumulatively consumed over 300Gb of space on each of the three machines. I have to ask, is this a bug? If not, what am I doing wrong? I've been using Sync for about 2 years, without a hitch, but this issue is awful. Thanks in advance, Brian Shaw
