My notebook has two partitions, one with Windows7 and one running Ubuntu 12.10
In Windows I keep my files synced using the SugarSync and DropBox applications.
In Ubuntu I set up the SME Sync Center so that those same folders that are kept synced in Windows will be kept synced when I use Ubuntu too. I chose the Sync All option, which looks what would emulate the original Dropbox/SugarSync behavior.
The problem is that as soon as SME starts syncing it creates a duplicate of each and every local file on the remote folder. It's like it won't recognize that the files on the server are the same files that are in the local folder, therefore it uploads them again, adding date and time at the end of the filename.
Am I doing something wrong? Why is this happening?
I noticed that even though the files have always been kept synced between the server and the notebook (in Windows), the timestamps that SME sees are different, for example:
picture01.jpg 2011 02 15 10:33:32 -> 2011 02 15 09:33:17
How can I solve?
This is going to use all my 1GB bandwidth limit, and considering I have 6Gbs of files to be kept synced, it would need 6 months just to update the files, not to consider that I'd then have to delete all duplicates from the servers.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
