With the rollout of Microsoft 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 the computer/device,
  • The name of who edited the file, 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.
