I seem to get a lot of conflict files and most of the time the content is the same but there have been changes in permissions. (if I set things up in a way that minimizes conflicts, then my permissions keep getting reset (bash scripts))
What would be great would be an option to dump all conflict files into a different specified folder that is outside of the syncthing system that I could go to if I suspect a significant difference, but that otherwise doesn’t show up in file searches. That way I could separately set up a script to delete files that are older than a specified age.
Ok, you’re right. I’ll try being more accurate. I have a lot of little text files that I’m always modifying with bash scripts. I suspect that maybe syncthing is too fast detecting changes before the script is through (?? just guessing). But anyway, the need is still there: 99% of the time the conflict file is not the correct one and I’d love it if they could just be put somewhere else in the filesystem.
As an aside, is there a way to delay the comparison time between detected file change and when Syncthing does its thing so I could test the hypothesis?
As for Os setup: 1 android phone, 1 raspberry pi, and 4 linux computers, with lots of folders shared on most or all computers
where you said this: “Yes, set maxConflicts to zero for the folder, in advanced config.”
but I can’t find in the settings where to set that. I looked in the per folder settings, including the advanced settings and also in the general settings and general advanced settings. Is there a new way to do this now?
