I had issues with UTF-8/Unicode filenames with cygwin + rsync (and the UTF-8 patch, etc). I’ve since removed a few hundred gigabytes from my Master, so the Slave has way more files atm that need purging. Anyways, I am now trying Syncthing. I want the Slave E: to be an exact mirror of Master D:. However, this is not happening. I was under the impression that Syncthing with default folder settings would function like rsync --delete. The master has 18442 items, I expect the Slave to have 18442 items but the slave still has 27110 items (that number isn’t getting smaller) and the “Global State” number on the Master is growing! Can someone explain why the Slave isn’t purging itself of the files that no longer exist on the Master. And, why the Slave isn’t a mirror of the Master? Thanks
My setup is basically defaults. The Master is on Windows 10. Slave is on Windows Server 2012. I have full admin access on both boxes and hard drives.
Folder Path D:
Global State 18442 items, ~365 GiB Local State 18442 items, ~365 GiB
Folder Path E:
Global State 18442 items, ~365 GiB Local State 27110 items, ~465 GiB Out of Sync Items 17767 items, ~178 GiB
