what happens if files are replaced in recieving end?

I am syncing a large file from machine A to B. the transfer is about 50% complete. In the meantime i also got the the same file in external hard drive.

What will happen if i replace the 50% completed file in machine B from the one in external drive?

Syncthing will notice that something odd happened and probably create a sync conflict (unless the file you copy in is identical to the one it is trying to download).

Also, we write content into a temporary file first, so we only do the swap when the transfer is complete.
