I’m currently testing Syncthing and looks very promising. Thank you. I successful installed and configured Syncthing on my desktop and my laptop. I’m currently syncing single repository called ‘tasks’. This repository contains about 4 XML based files. I have 100% sync status, in other words all my files on both machines are synced. I verified it with MD5 hushes.
Next I shutdown Syncthing on both computers. Then I work on my laptop while syncthing is offline. ‘tasks’ repository is my TODO list, as result my files on my laptop get modified as I complete my tasks, but no single change is made on my desktop that remains off all day.
When I get home I turn on my desktop and my laptop. Next I start Syncthing on both machines and let it sync the repository. Unfortunately, I encounter a problem. Often, but not always my ‘tasks’ repository on the laptop will be overwritten by outdated version on my desktop. At this time it seams random. I tried both:
- Start syncthing on the desktop first and second on my laptop; and
- Start syncthing on my laptop first and second on my desktop.
Is this a bug or I’m using syncthing incorrectly?
ps. I tried ‘Master repository’ option, but it doesn’t work for me, because I need to able to modify my TODO list on both laptop and desktop as I work.
