[FR] Expose "--reset-deltas" via Web UI button


my current ticket about “ouf of sync” on v1.6.1 brought me to this idea. Would it be much work to do to expose the reset-deltas function in the Web UI so Syncthing for example tells the monitor process via exit code it should restart it with a one time “–reset-deltas” shot afterwards?

I have other ways to achieve this, but because of the network security strategies it’s taking more time to get a SSH session to all servers remotely where I normally just have the Web UI of Syncthing exposed.

Would love if this could be improved in the future. No hurry, of course :-). Just an idea.

Kind regards, Catfriend1

We should just get down to whats causing it and fix the underlying cause.


Id really like to see reset deltas, reset database and in the future a per-folder-database with per-folder-reset options. I struggle often with 95% folders and an “expert” menu would certainly help.

You can achieve something like this by unticking the device under sharing (folder / edit / sharing). After a while the db (seems to) clear out the indexes and it becomes unused. Then re add it

It does so immediately.

We think we found the underlying cause that was causing this. So hopefully we will not be needing this.
