Find the number of sync errors is always slowly creeping up, even for very small databases (<50MB).
Here is one I cannot seem to thwart…
Could not load a record. Buffer too small.
Verify and repair will not fix, neither does rebuild.
Error does not tell me what file is the problem.
How do I recover so I can resume syncing on this database?
I could not find a working solution in that thread you linked BlueFrog.
I am seeing a similar error now in another synced database also:
Right clicking gives no link to an actual file.
The problem here, as above is that it kills my sync process.How can I most quickly get back to a desktop and remote sync working? Last choice is to blast the sync and start from scratch, but I presume I will lose data there (all changes from one end)
Doing a Clean Location has no effect on the Syncing machines. it only cleans out the Sync location’s data. (Another reason a decentralized model is a good idea. )
Can you clarify your post for me BlueFrog?
Not quite sure if that was a suggestion, or an observation.
Thanks. The fact that the log reports these as known errors leaves me with hope that there is a way to recover!
If you are Syncing to Dropbox, WebDAV, or a local syncStore, you can do a Clean location in the Sync preferences (under the Action button (with the gear icon)). This will delete the existing Sync data at the chosen location and let you Sync afresh.
