Readonly sync to overwrite target sync folders

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have a server that I created a READONLY folder on. Then on another server or computer I am syncing using that READONLY key.

It seems that if I edit data on the other computer, those files no longer get updated from the master. It seems like this is a missing option in the READONLY mode; whether it should always force (like a mirror) on the target instances, or if it is to allow the target instances to not get their data wiped away...  ?

The purpose is..  I have a production database that I create a snapshot of.. I actually do it nightly by starting and stopping the btsync service at night for an hour. Then on my other computer I can test all I want.. and the next day I'll have it wiped out with an update from prod again. That is not happening though.

You'll need to select the "Overwrite any changed files" option on the read-only folder's preferences screen within Sync to bring it back in line with other (non read-only) devices

I see. I did set that. And so far it has not corrected itself. I'm going to try to delete the files in question on the receiving side to see if it'll re-send.
