Synchronization Details

Hi How does the sync for big files work? If I have a big xml or database (stand alone) file, will the sync work incrementally, in diffefencial or full mode? I want to know this on the single file level, bits and bytes sync... Are the copies a clone, I mean, do they copy byte by byte or only relevant data. There are files that after updated keep the old or deleted data inside but inaccessible, occupying space, how the sync deals with that? Can you help me ? 10x

The current version hashes 4 MB blocks of the file. If the file length doesn't change, only the changed 4 MB blocks are updated. If the file length changes, the entire file is resync'd.

Search these forums. There are plenty more details about that available.

In fact, I have a question for that. What happens if I add like 8MB to the end of the file, so no bytes are shifted over. Would it still resync the whole file or just the last 8MB that updated?

Sync will sync the 8Mb only.
