What happens when on a read only source server files are constantly changing or being updated? What happens on the target?

Recommended Posts

Lets say we have 20GB individual files that are edited almost on a daily basis, with some changing little, temps being removed/added, static files, etc. How does the sync process review that it should always overwrite the target if changed?

Im using Sync as a backup method so it should be synced (or backed up) always (as long as there is bandwidth available)

Nothing! Files changed on a read-only node will not propagate to other nodes in your Sync "mesh".

To bring a read-only node back in Sync with other nodes in your Sync "mesh", you'd need to select the "Overwrite any changed files" option via the folder's Preferences menu in Sync.

How does it not change if the one way source is always changing? Makes no sense...

If you have two Sync nodes - one is configured read-write, and the other read-only, then only changes made on the read-write node with sync. Changes made on the "read-only" node will be ignored and won't sync.
