What means filesystem type - basic?


I’m trying to find out what means the option “Filesystem type” with default option “basic” in the advanced config of a folder.

What other options are there and what does it mean?

I did search but did not find it… Advanced Configuration — Syncthing v1 documentation



There’s no other filesystem type.

It’s an abstraction in case we ever want to support other backend storage types, let it be S3 or something else.

There are actually different filesystem implementations inside of syncthing, to combat various edge cases (timestamp inaccuracy, case insensitivity etc), but not something the user needs to control/adjust via that configuration value.
