I have my 1P files stored on a DropBox folder. Several devices (iPads, iPhones, PCs, and Laptop - soon to be joined by a Mac Air) share the data files.
Sometimes when I view the 1P data files I have two files for an entry but one has (conflicted device date) added to the file name. I have been told by the DropBox folks that the file with the "conflicted" addition is the most current. Unfortunately, I deleted these conflicted files before I found out they were the most current. Since I do not have a record of when & what, that will just be an error I will have to live with. I would like to avoid that in the future though.
I have yet to be able to determine how these conflicts occur but somehow DropBox thinks the file has been updated at the same time??
I have a couple of such files now. I tried renaming the existing file with OLD added to the name and then removing the "conflicted" data from the newer file's name. I looked at the file and am able to tell which entry is associated with the file. That change does not seem to work since the modified date is older when I look at the file on a PC (the modification timestamp really should be displayed on the 1P iPad/iPhone apps!!).
So, what procedure should be followed to resolve the conflict?
