Does the .Archive directory get emptied - or can I do so?


Syncthing 1.3.0 Mac & Linux

There’s an “Archive” folder within .sync which for me contains some large files that I deleted a while ago.

I’m not using File Versioning, it’s a simple “all default settings” share between one machine and another.

I just wondered what the purpose of “Archive” was in this case, whether something would periodically remove the contents of Archive or whether I would be safe to manually delete the files it contains myself?

Thanks Jakob. I like straightforward solutions, early in the day.

AFAIK the .sync folder is created/used by Risilio.

Correct; .sync is a Resilio created folder. (At least in FreeBSD it is.)
