GUI retrieval of earlier file versions

Recommended Posts

know that Sync stored earlier file versions in its .sync/Archive folder, but most people using it does not know. People don't read documentation. So I think that when right-clicking a file in Finder (or Explorer) one should be presented with a way of choosing an earlier file version. The dialog should show these fields for each file/folder

  • When was the file created
  • When was it overwritten by the next version
  • Which peer (user+device) had the change that triggered the overwrite/deletion

I know that is what proper backups systems are for, but this eases debugging sync issues (which is hard enough as it is), and sending you debug logs every time does not scale :-)
