Mac Os X File Locks


Recommended Posts



I'm using btsync to backup my Mac OS X data onto my home server (worked without any problem for two weeks). The home server only stores the files and does not change or access the files in any way.


Therefore I'm also syncing my ~/Library folder.


Today the Apple Mail settings seem to be corrupt as well as the Internet Accounts settings.


Can anyone tell me how file locks are handled by btsync on Mac OS X. Is a file still writable for Mac OS X during a btsync sync process?

Or are the files locked during an upload process, so that the process that automatically updates the setting files might crash?

Might it be another btsync related problem, that I'm not thinking of?


Thanks for your help.
