Why Sync not working and two folders are different?

Recommended Posts

I am developer and I am using git for some chess module - as many others.

I want sync my repositories between machines - as many others.

What happen:

  1. I setup Sync on git repository path like "git-repos/git-xxx" on computer Alice.
  2. I setup Sync on other computer Bob and copy read-write code from Alice.
  3. Files was synced from Alice->Bob
  4. I do some development ... and push to Bob git repository branch e-xxx.
  5. Some files was synced but some not synced so on Alice there is not branch e-xxx.
  6. I do some compare to learn what happen.
  7. It is happen that Alice and Bob same directory is not same - NOT SYNCED!!!

What to do with it :)

  1. Restarts tested.

For debug purpose:

  1. I do 7-zip on Bob "git-repos/git-xxx" and some "git-xxx.7zip" was synced.
  2. I do compare with WinMerge and what I see:

Compare c:\xxx\Desktop\chess-tree with C:\root\git-repositories\chess-tree

Why it is not synced not idea and how force indexing, syncing?

@Chameleon First couple of things to check:

1. Permissions. Your Sync should have full access to folders it Sync.
2. Connectivity. Does Sync UI shows that both peers are online?
3. Some time. Did you give Sync 10+ minutes? Sometimes, OS notifications may not work (especially, on large array of files, therefore Sync will only detect file changes during full rescan, which happens every 10 minutes by default (and may take rather long if you have 100K+ files).

all that can be synced, is synced there. But some subdirs have '.lock' on them, which is pretty much expected - git might be locking some items. for example:
etc. Release this lock. If the problem remains, please contact support with debug logs per instruction:
