".!sync" files


Recommended Posts

On one of my synced machines, the hidden ".sync" folder contains many files with the extension ".!sync".  The other synced machine does not.  Is this how it should be, or is this situation telling me something (for example, about why I have continued intermittent syncing problems)?

After rebranding to Resilio Sync, .rsls placeholders do not appear in the folder until the file is fully downloaded. Now syncing is dome via part file XXXX.!sync in .sync directory, it's done in this way so as to avoid re-syncing of necessary pieces. If do you observe that file sin the directory it seems that files were not fully downloaded it stucked.
