Two ancient files keep getting synced every 10 minutes

Recommended Posts

Hi forum and support team,

of my hundreds of thousands of synced files across like 5 machines, there are two image files that have been turning up for months in the Sync "History" list exactly every 10 minutes under "Activity" with the event "Updated file".

These files have not been touched for years on any machine. They have similar but not identical contents and filenames, and one of them is a PNG and the other a JPEG file.

What could be the reason for this behavior, and how could it be resolved?

OK this seems to be resolved.

The files in question contained a strange unicode character in the file name that was invisible to file explorers, and would only appear when the file name was copied to a text editor.
