Using OneNote on a notebook synced by Odrive, if I leave Odrive open, I’m frequently shoved out of my notebook by Odrive making conflict files, which I guess is an affront to OneNote.
That’s incredibly annoying when files are password protected (because I can’t find ONE single file encryption tool that will encrypt, whilst also not pissing off OneNote), because it immediately then locks the file, whilst simultaneously losing everything I was just typing, and losing data is pretty much the exact opposite of Odrive’s mission.
So, instead of creating a conflict file, (which isn’t really very helpful in really any situation that I’ve encountered, to be honest) why not try a solution akin to Handle, check if the file is indeed held open by some program, and then either add it to a list to watch and wait for it to be freed up, or notify me that this file is currently not uploadable?
Really, basically any action other than immediately conflicting the file would be useful, some kind of notification, prompt that I can apply a folder/subfolder/generic globalisation to, even just not conflicting it IN that same folder, for example, a conflict folder/file archive somewhere else.
In fact, making it conflict to a conflict folder at the root of that particular storage service (with the same folder structure perhaps?) would be the best immediate stopgap solution, whilst a better solution is found.
The storage is taken up either way, so it’s not really like there’s a loss there anyway, and Odrive could even clean up that folder when/if the file becomes available to upload again.
Something along those lines would probably resolve most conflict issues, and bring others down to a much more manageable level (looking at you, “filename(conflict)(conflict)(conflict)(conflict)(conflict)” situations…).
