If You Restore From A Backup, Would Sync Overwrite The Newer Files On Other Nodes With Backed Up Copies Or Pull Newer Copies From Other Nodes

Recommended Posts

Just wondering. I would assume it should pull newer copies from other nodes, but the files restored from backup were technically "written" more recently to disk. (although not updated)

I actually just tested this as an experiment and found inconsistent behavior. If I went in and modified the files before they synced, that copy would sync over as expected to other peers. However, for some reason if I only modified rows in a database, that database was somehow overwritten later by data from a read-only node after restoring from a system static disk backup.

 

It'd be nice if Sync would instead prompt for conflicts (with an option to "apply for all" or something to not receive a million prompts) vs. just overwriting local data. Date differences can be a little suspicious and data loss really sucks.

 

Could someone re-title this thread and move it to the wish list forum?
