Folder Types

Send & Receive Folder

This is the standard folder type. Under this setting, a folder will both send changes to and receive changes from remote devices.

Send Only Folder

A folder can be set in “send-only mode” among the folder settings.

The intention is for this to be used on devices where a “master copy” of files are kept - where the files are not expected to be changed on other devices or where such changes would be undesirable.

In send-only mode, all changes from other devices in the cluster are ignored. Changes are still received so the folder may become “out of sync”, but no changes will be applied.

When a send-only folder becomes out of sync, a red “Override Changes” button is shown at the bottom of the folder details.

Clicking this button will enforce this host’s current state on the rest of the cluster. Any changes made to files will be overwritten by the version on this host, any files that don’t exist on this host will be deleted, and so on.
