Re-Sync A Folder Without Overwrite All The Files

Recommended Posts

I have had some issues with my PC, so I had to reinstall my OS.

I had a syncronized folder and now I want to sync that again without overwriting all the files I already have.

When I attempt to connect the folder a message appears: "The folder is not empty: sync anyway?".

Does BTSync detect the files it has already downloaded and just starts syncing new stuff or does it sync all over again?

I just need to know this.

If you add the folder with the same key you had before - some of files in folder you add might be replaced with newer files, updated on other peers.
