Restore file from SyncTrash fails on Mac

Recommended Posts

Testing restoration of files after they have been deleted and sent to .SyncTrash folder.

Windows works as expected. I delete a file on Computer 1 (windows) and it moves the file to .SyncTrash on Computer 2 (windows) and Computer 3 (Mac).

I then cut / paste file from .SyncTrash to original location on Computer 2 and it restores the file for all computers (New File). I then repeated the process and opened two windows and Moved deleted file from .SyncTrash to original location... it restored on all computers.

I then delete the file on Computer 2 and file is moved to .SyncTrash on 1 & 3.

I then use Computer 3 (mac) to restore file and get no joy. It is not recognized in file history and not synced back to Comp 1 and Comp 2.

The only way I can get the file to restore is to move it to another folder outside of the sync folder file structure and then back again.

Also deleted files don't enter the .SyncTrash folder on the computer they were deleted from.
