I have a question regarding ignored files. As far as I know, they are still indexed and kept in the database, but are blocks from them also reused for new similar or identical files that get added to the folder?
I am interested in reusing blocks from
.stversions without actually adding the folder to Syncthing separately. I can remove it from the hard-coded list, which then makes Syncthing treat the folder as any other. However, then I would also like to ignore it, so that it is not synced to any other device. Will doing so allow Syncthing to use blocks from the
.stversions folder locally, or is it all in vain?
The reason for the whole plan is that I often move huge folders, however not inside the same Syncthing folder, but rather between different ones. Because of that, what usually happens is that Syncthing deletes the files in the second folder on a remote device before it manages to move or copy them from the first folder. I would like to work around this somehow.
