Can anyone confirm if this is still the way Nextcloud (19 and up) handles conflicting files. I have note conflicts on a regular basis and I haven’t seen any conflicting copies stored.
I’d like to know this as well. This is extremely frustrating, with no obvious fix from what I can tell. Should I just start deleting and re-naming files until the one I want to keep is synced?
file (conflicted copy 2020-10-01 031405).txt <-- the one I actually want
I notice other conflicted copies in my directories as well… what is the best way to manage and handle these without manual intervention?
I notice this as well, frequently. I’m using the desktop client for Windows, currently on version 3.0.3.
I open the files from the directory using locally installed apps, e.g. LibreOffice Calc.
I do a small change, save and close the file, and the local changes get saved into a “conflicted copy” file.
And I am sure that no one else is working on the same file!
In that case you would favor the conflicted copy most likely. I’m grateful that the clients as of #nc20 allow us to keep the original and conflicted copies sync’ed.
My current method:
- Backup conflicted files into an archive .zip
- Resolve the conflict via desktop app
I get this a lot when photo’s are synced using the instant upload feature.
I get a number of conflicts, but they’re the same image being uploaded twice and generating a conflict.
