Merge 2 different versions of a backup

Hello Guys I’m new. I have this weird situation I have 2 backup an older one and a new one where some files where added, some were moved or renamed and other files are missing from the older one. So I’d like to know if Synching can compare the 2 trees inspecting files at bloc level and merge the 2 structure, keeping the most recent file name and location if an older one is found and copy older ones if missing in the recent backip.


Syncthing syncs files it does not do any magical backup merging stuff.

If you have files renamed between the two copies you’ll end up with both files taking double the space.
