I have a Windows 7 and Linux PCs and have been syncing them via file system sync on a FAT32 USB stick. Usually it works fine, however occassionally it quietly leaves the notes messed up.
After digging around I suspect it is due to the file timestamps that I think sync relies on.
I checked the modified time for a sync file on the USB according to both PCs and they report different times. The file was actually modified at 13:28 local time which is 02:28 UTC.
2019-11-08 13:28:04.000000000 +1100
2019-11-08 02:28:04.000000000 +1100
I’m not sure which is correct, or how to fix it yet (perhaps using NTFS on the USB stick), but could this difference be responsible for the erratic sync behaviour I have been seeing?
