I’m seeking advice how to find out what happened and how to prevent that in future.
I’m converting from BoxCryptor. As such I copied >4500 files from Boxcryptor (Classic) to Cryptomator 1.5 with Dokany. I don’t know what you need to know to answer (e.g. if real filenames and folder names are important). So please ask.
Copying took place on one PC of mine. Data has been uploaded to DropBox and downloaded again on another PC. Finally I compared the new files with an old copy on the second PC. This may sound “expensive”, but:
In one subdirectory there’s a certain file of type PDF and two JPG, among others. When comparing files I realized that those two JPG files inside the (new) destination folder were identical to the PDF file (in content, length, time). Source files differ! How can this happen?
Then I tried to restore the JPG files from the source (copy over). Although the destination files could be deleted, the file manager failed to save them. The actual message might be specific to the behaviour of the file manager (it said, it cannot find the file - maybe it tried to save the file and then wanted to set attributes).
I had to lock the vault and unlock it again, before I actually could copy those files successfully.
Unfortunately, there’s no noticeable message inside the log file.
So what should I do? Does this sound familiar?
