Sync should Default ignore .crdownload files

Recommended Posts

It seems Sync has issues with .crdownload files.  Today I had to move a 2GB drive to a 2.5GB drive so I removed the share from Sync before moving the data. The share was supposedly synced at that point so the expectation is that after re-adding it back and it indexing, they should have been in sync.  However, after removing the share, moving the data and adding back the share, I have 22 conflicts, all for .crdownload files that don't exist.

I get the error "These cannot be downloaded as there are no source peers online for too long a time".

All these files were transient and long ago removed, and on top of that, not ever in the folder that Sync is reporting. I have no idea where this old information is coming from, so there is obviously one or more bugs about failing to clean up properly, and failing to detect/index properly. A search on both computers for "*.crdownload" turned up no results.

I've just added .crdownload to my IgnoreList, so hopefully I'll avoid these bugs in the future.
