Hi, Please bear with me as I am new to posting
I am running windows 8.1 installed on my C drive and have moved all my Data to my D drive and I want to sync my D drive folders with my WD mycloud.
I use Acronis True Image to perform a cold backup of my C drive and recover this image everytime I suspect that I have installed an application which may have installed spyware etc… I will redo this image backup after installing and configuring syncthing.
My question are:-
what will happen if I recover my drive image after several weeks/months of using syncthing as the database which is installed in AppData/local/syncthing will not be in sync with the data being synced between my D drive and the WD mycloud, will syncthing be able to handle the discrepancy between its database and my data without loosing data or getting mixed up?
Could I relocate the syncthing database to my D drive or a usb flash drive? if yes how do I do this?
what happens when/if the database gets corrupted are there any utilities to repair the database?
I know dropbox and Copy client can handle the recovery as I am running dropbox and Copy client with folders on my D drive. I don’t want to implement a backup regime that will not survive a recovery of my system drive.
Thanks in advance.
