With the rollout of Office 365, the University is moving to OneDrive as the preferred cloud storage solution. You can find information about OneDrive here:
When multiple people edit the same file at the same time in a shared folder, Syncplicity Sync & Share can detect this and will download all the conflicting versions to your computer/device to let you (as the owner of the file) choose which one to keep.
The file that you edited on your computer/device will remain unchanged in its current form. All the conflicting versions will appear with the same name, but with some extra information so you can tell them apart:
- The name of who edited the file
- The name of the computer/device, and
- When it was edited
For example: Resume (edited by John Doe on Home PC @ 5-12-08 2-15-00 PM).doc
You will need to compare the versions and merge edits as necessary before deleting the extra versions of the file.
