Hi, I use Enpass store version on my Windows 10 laptop & the Enpass app on Android. In order to sync database between both my devices, since I don't trust the cloud I opted to use folder sync method along with Syncthing. In Syncthing, I can choose a specific folder on my android phone & windows laptop and Syncthing will keep the contents of the folder in sync using local WiFi i.e. the router. So, in order for the sync to work, both my laptop & my phone must be connected to the router at the same time. It's just like how the Google Drive desktop app can keep 2 folders in different computers in sync, but this occurs through local WiFi & not the global internet. Now coming to my problem, there frequently comes a scenario where if I make a change on Enpass in Windows 10 which is offline and then I make another change on Enpass in Android which is also offline, then when I connect both devices to the internet, a collision occurs & 2 files are generated on both my devices. But it seems Enpass reads only 1 of them to sync, which is the file named vault.enpassdbsync. Is there a way I can setup Enpass such that in such scenarios, it would scan both databases on a line level & identify changes in both? This doesn't seem to be happening when using folder sync method.
Timeline and status in Box Folder sync_default.walletx - Last updated 12/27/2018 enpass upgraded to v6.x - 12/28/2018 vault.enpassdbsync - created 12/28/2018; last updated 01/18/2019 Fresh install of Windows 10 - 01/19/2019 Hi, I used to have windows 8 on my PC and using enpass 5.x with Box sync. Once the Enpass is upgraded to 6.x I couldn't use BOX sync anymore. So, I directed the folder sync towards the 'Box sync" folder as my vault sync_default.walletx was in that location. Import worked fine and Enpass continued to work seamlessly as I wasn't ready to change my cloud sync to other provider yet.Changing the sync method to 'folder sync' created another a file called 'vault.enpassdbsync' in my box folder which is fine. Later, on one fine day I decided to do a fresh install of windows 10 on my pc. As my folder sync backed up 'vault.enpassdbsync' to cloud, I didn't care to take a backup of my vault. I did a fresh install of enpass from windows 10 store and tried to restore from 'vault.enpassdbsync' in 'box sync' folder but couldn't. The older (last version) of sync_default.walletx is still available and I can still restore from it. Question - Is there any way to restore/use the latest 'vault.enpassdbsync' to get the data now? All the changes/additions made after upgrading to enpass 6.x are gone now. Please help. -Adhrust
