Live Mesh File Updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does Mesh update only the files that have changed or does it go through the whole folder from scratch each time? I have approximately 600mb uploaded and only some of the files change it seems like it is uploading the whole thing over and over anyway to check my total upload for one day?

  • The sync is only the new or changed files, but if the files/folders in your Mesh are being touched, such a metadata in Music files, they will need to resync.
    Mesh will go through "hash" data to see what has changed. This hash data is transferred up and down, so it can seem like actual files are updating.
