I’m encountering a very similar problem.
I have a folder in Syncthing containing several files which don’t seem to be syncing properly. Clicking on the “failed items” list reveals the following error message next to each item: “file modified but not rescanned; will try again later”. Clicking the “Rescan” button to try to force a rescan does nothing to resolve the error.
Additionally, my directory seems to contain slightly older revisions of each of these files, with names like
~syncthing~<some_file>.tmp, which I can’t get rid of. Every time I delete these extra files, Syncthing just puts them back a few minutes later.
One way I’ve discovered to fix this is to delete the files (new and old revisions), wait for Syncthing to put them back, delete them again, wait for Syncthing to register that they’re gone, then restore the files from a backup copy. That’s very inconvenient though, and this sync issue seems to be happening fairly frequently (mostly with files I’m actively working on).
Do you have a link to the GitHub issue for this bug so I can subscribe to be notified when it’s fixed?
