How sophisticated is the sync logic?

Suppose one has a folder with several files in it, and then change the name of it. Will syncthing treat this as a new folder and dutifully sync the ‘new’ folder and all of the contents, none of which have changed?

Many thanks,


No, it will just rename the files. That doesn’t reliably work across folders (syncthing folders) though, due to how rescan intervals work, so you might transfer all data or none.

Great, thanks!
