Raspberry Pi - Getting Lots Of .goutputstream Files


Recommended Posts



I'm using 1.4.93 on my WIndows 8.1 laptop and 1.4.99 on my Raspberry Pi.


There are piles of files starting with .goutputstream eg .goutputstream-4OCPOX which are being synced.


This causes a problem as it gets difficult so save a file to the synced directory as it is busy all the time :(


Please help!

NicovdDussen, you can open your shared folder and edit .sync/IgnoreList file. You can put there this string:


After that disconnect that folder and connect it again. Then .goutputstream* files will not be synchronized anymore.



.goutputstream* are temporary files that GLib uses in file write activities it also may be created by applications using GIO library. Sync don't create such files.
