NAME¶sy-down - fetch remote changes from Syncany repository and apply locally
SYNOPSIS¶sy down [-C | --conflict-strategy=<rename|ask>] [-A | --no-apply]
DESCRIPTION¶This command detects changes made by other clients and applies them locally. If there are remote changes, the command downloads the relevant metadata, evaluates which multichunks are required and then downloads them. It then determines what files need to be created, moved, changed or deleted, and performs these actions, if possible.
In some cases, file conflicts may occur if the local file differs from the expected file. If that happens, this command can either automatically rename conflicting files and append a filename suffix, or it can ask the user what to do.
To determine the remote changes, the ´ls-remote´ command is used.
* The ´rename´ strategy automatically renames conflicting files to a
* The ´ask´ strategy lets the user decide whether to keep the local file,
The default strategy is ´rename´. The ´ask´ strategy is currently NOT implemented!
