I need to reinstall syncthing on my nas, but I am unsure how it will work when I do not have the database from the old install. So I would like to install syncthing and then add the shared folders as before. I am afraid when there is a file missing on my nas which is existent on a remote machine, that this file will get deleted. Or will syncthing just handle the current files as “starting point” and thus has not detected any deletion which will be propagated to the remote systems? How about the other way around, when there has been a file deleted on the remote machine in the meantime?
Is there any documentation about these cases somewhere? I hvae not found anything like this.
