Getting sync errors

#1

Hi,

I can’t confirm since when, but I’ve realized I get this message every time Joplin tries to sync the content:

Updated remote items: 1.

Completed: 04/04/2019 14:19

Last error: Error: Processing a path that has already been done: bcd5046d691e447c8fefc72cb5ce7904.md. sync_time was not updated? Remote item has an updated_time in the future?

Is this something I have to take a look somehow?

Thanks

It might happen if a sync is in progress and a note is edited at the same time. Was it your case? I’m thinking of removing this error message as it’s not really an error: it just means the synchronizer has found an unusual condition and stopped processing. But next time it starts most likely there won’t be an issue.

Yep, sounds like a good idea. A lot of people get confused by this message. There have been 1 or 2 tickets on gh…

I reported this in https://github.com/laurent22/joplin/issues/1353#

If the message is truly harmless, and all the data has actually been synced completely and correctly, then I support removing the message, since it does needlessly suggest there was a problem.
