Concurrent changes


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm evaluating Resilio Sync for maintaining a local copy of my NAS on my laptop when I'm away and resync it when I'm back on the network.

I made this very simple POC: 1) synchronize the laptop, 2) get the laptop offline , 3) modify a file on the laptop pc, 4) modify the same file on the NAS, 5) reconnect the laptop to the network.

I expected Resilio Sync to warn me about a conflict.

It didn't. It just erased the version on the latpop with the one from the NAS. I guess, because it was newer.

Is there a way to have Resilio either warn about the conflict or, at least, not erasing the local copy (e.g. by making a tagged copy of it) ?

Old version of the file is moved to Archive, located in .sync inside the shared folder:

This is how Sync works when processing changes to one file from several peers.

When Sync encounters conflicting files, the file synced from remote is going to have ".Conflict" in its name:
