Locked file prevents other files from syncing

Recommended Posts

I understand that a locked file cannot be synced. I do not understand why a locked file prevents other files from syncing.

Example from this morning:

  • File A1 is open on Computer A in a synced folder.
  • File A2 is newly created on Computer A in the synced folder and is then closed and unlocked.
  • Computer B syncs neither file A1 nor A2, and lists file A1 as locked.
  • Closing files A1 on Computer A results in Computer B syncing both A1 and A2 without further attention.

Why does the lock on A1 prevent A2 from syncing? Is this normal expected behavior? This is really inconvenient, since there will always be some file open somewhere.

It doesn't.

No.

Could you please reproduce the issue, mention the name of files and send logs from both peers to support?
