My aim is to sync my mp3 collection from my Linux PC to some OSMC Raspberries. Because I had storage problems (files getting corrupt due to SD or USB-Stick wear) and do not want to get corrupted files synced back to my PC, I set “send only” on the PC and “receive only” on the Raspberries. In general, all works fine.
However, some files are marked as “locally changed” right after writing them. First guess: It could be the file attributes (e.g. different user, etc.), so I checked (on both sides) the “ignore permission”. This did not change anything.
Now I observed, that the reported files all have a timestamp mismatch of 1 second. I presume this is due to the FAT filesystem on the USB stick I store the files on.
I have read [SOLVED] Receive Only folders always get marked as “Local Additions” in Android and I am under the impression that the “1 second timestamp off” fix is compiled into the binary and therefore OS dependent. Instead, as my Raspberries are also Linux, the behaviour should be filesystem dependent, or - better - be adjustable, i.e. the “ignore permissions” (which in its description specifically mentiones FAT file systems) should also fix the “1 second timestamp off” problem.
Any thoughts on this?
