Bug - Read Only Fails On Updated Files

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

after considerable testing (cross platform between Windows, Mac OSX and Linux versions) I think I have found a quite annoying bug.

 

Situation: 3 machines sharing files with a Read Only key, source is a Mac OSX machine.

 

Symptom:

An updated file refuses to sync, stays in the list. File size has changed, file date has changed, still no sync. 

 

Changing to a Full Access key on the same directory, without starting all over again, solves the problem - the updated file in the source is being synced to the target(s).

 

 

So, it seems that 'Read Only' applies to both sides for updated files. First-time/new files sync OK.

 

We have tested this from MacOSX to Windows/Linux AND the same bug appears when syncing from Windows to MacOSX (Linux not tested).

 

FWIW: all versions are 1.3.106

 

 

This is consistent behavior, so it seems to be a real bug.

 

We'd like to hear from you all!

 

Grtz,

R&B

Couple of questions just to make sure that all simple stuff is covered:

1. Your "Source Mac" owns RW key?

2. The file is changed on Source Mac?

3. The file changes are not synced to other RO peers?

 

If all of the above statements are correct - please check:

- if this file was ever changed on RO peers (in this case they would no longer sync it)

- if checking the checkbox "Restore Modified files to original version" helps

I also have been dealing with this problem. On the hosts with the RO key no files ever change(they are backup servers). I enabled "Restore Modified files to original version" and the files began to sync again. I have had many gigabytes of data that failed to sync due to this odd behaviour.
