Backup strategy

In the Advanced tab of a sync item‘s settings, you can choose whether files that are overwritten or removed should be moved to the trash or a custom folder.

You can select a custom backup folder for each destination base of the sync item. A custom backup folder must be on the same device as the corresponding base; if inside the base itself, the backup folder will be automatically excluded.

When a file is moved to the backup folder, the current timestamp is appended to its name. The timestamp has the format yyyy-MM-dd[T]HH-mm-ss+ZZZZ, which is independent of the current system locale and takes into account the timezone as well. This timestamp will be used in order to determine which backup files lie outside of the selected timeframe and are to be removed.
