i recently started using syncthing and thought i got into it pretty well… however, i have just encountered a massive problem:
device a: sync folder /Users/me/*
device b: sync folder /home/sync/me-macbook
device a contains 111188 files 22426 folders ~316 GiB data
(after ignoring certain files via .stignore)
device b contains 0 files 22426 folders ~2.74 MiB data
most folders do actually contain the files they are supposed to, but don’t seem to be recognized by syncthing itself. all those files’ name have this pattern .syncthing.*.tmp, i.e. .syncthing.1-11 Alkohol.mp3.tmp.
therefore, the ~2.74 MiB of data are a mistake; according to device a, ~190 GiB of data have been synced yesterday (and i’m sure if i added up all those .syncthing.*.tmp files, that would be what i’d get).
device a states that device b is syncing (0% since the beginning and still at that point)
device b states that device a is up to date
device a keeps switching between scanning and up to date for that specific folder, device b keeps the scanning status up.
am i just impatient and all files will be visible in their regular form once the entire amount has synced? but if so, why does device b state that 130584 items, ~315 GiB are currently Out Of Sync Items?
just trying to make sure i don’t spend the entire day letting my devices sync this enormous amount of data just to find out later that something went wrong and i have yet to go back to square one…
thanks in advance for your help
