I encountered an issue with my external SD-card’s filesystem being somewhat corrupted and I’m wondering if syncthing could be the culprit.
Not sure wat kind of information would be useful to determine this, but I have opened an issue on the syncthing-android fork that I’ve been using (idk what is better or worse, I just happened to get this one) and they say it’s not a problem with their app, but with the underlying syncthing usage.
A summary: My phone had issues with the external SD card three or four times now. It was working until a reboot, at which point I think it performs an fsck and notices that something is wrong. Manually mounting it r/w still works, it’s just lineageOS that does not want to automatically mount it.
Anyway, the latest time I came upon this issue, fsck.exfat was not able to fix all the issues. I had to use chkdsk on windows to fix it, and that reported more corruptions. But all of them inside folders that I am syncing with syncthing.
My external SD card is Exfat, and I sync to a windows NTFS computer and a synology NAS with whatever they use (probably ext-4 or such).
Is it possible that syncthing breaks my filesystem? (For the specific errors, please see the link above to the issue.)
Thank you for any insights!
