To preface: I know Syncthing is not a backup solution
I have a Receive-Only folder which has local changes and is displaying the “Revert Local Changes” button. Its status shows as “Up To Date”, so without expanding the folder in the GUI there’s no apparent need for attention for the folder. In this specific instance I know it will have been like this for 3-4 weeks.
I would expect that users need to know if a folder has pending changes to Revert, so perhaps the folder status should show something other than “Up To Date”. As discussed on the issue the folder is in fact up to date with the cluster, so there’s an argument that “Up To Date” is accurate.
In this specific instance this Receive folder receives files from another device and periodically backs them up. Spurious data here means that the backup is polluted (if I do a restore and there’s 1000 extra files, it’s a pain to deal with). If I was made aware that there are local changes, from the status line in the folder header, I would at least be aware that attention is needed.
Anyone else care to chime in?
