Today, on opening Icedrive all my sync pairs started syncing. It meant 500+ files, 339GB of syncing. Almost all of these files had not changed in weeks. I had not changed file path structures for parent folders.
Other cloud-based storage options I have sync only changed folders/files.
I’ve had multiple challenges with syncing on icedrive. I use sycn as a backup to safeguard my files. In addition to events like todays, sync regularly crashes the app (I have a support request that goes back to May that remains unresolved and requires regular nudging of support for any updates). Because of the unreliability of the sync feature, I am never sure what has or hasn’t synced on my computer. Some advice on the following would be great:
- What triggers a ‘sync’ event in Icedrive?
- If a folder sync is interrupted, does it then go back and redo the whole folder? For example, a folder with 100 files, if it gets through syncing 99 files and I cancel or pause the sync, or close icedrive, will it then redo all 99 files again?
- Does Icedrive only sync changed files/folders?
- If the name of a folder in a synced file path is changed, or folder structure changes, does Icedrive re-sync all files?
Thanks for any advice.
