Archive GUI and re-upload deleted file from an encrypted peer

Recommended Posts

User Story:


As a user, I want to have a graphical user interface right in the client so that I can restore previous versions and deleted files even if the only remaining peer is encrypted.

Manually restoring files from .sync/Archive is not as intuitive as having a GUI. In the initial release it might be as simple as:

  • MyModifiedFile.txt
    • Restore a previous version
      • 2018-04-10 10:30 AM
      • 2018-04-10 10:19 AM
      • 2018-04-09 07:50 PM
      • 2018-04-08 02:00 PM
  • MyDeletedFile.txt
    • Restore file

In further iterations it might implement a file preview and/or a comparison view.

The most important feature regarding this would be the ability to unset the deleted status in database so the file can be re-uploaded from an encrypted peer.

Thank you, guys. You did an incredible job.

This would be very interesting to have. To have the ability to restore a file from peers' .sync/archive would be very excellent in unlimited ways.
