Synchronization problem on self-hosted Bitrix, Local folder Bitrix24 and My Drive not sync
We have very similar problems. Self hosted bitrix version.

Basically and I don't know why this isn't communicated anywhere I can tell is that most IT professionals may not purchase the software if they do know?

The desktop sync works, but it does not work in the way you would expect it when deleting files fr om the synced folder. It deletes it on the local machine but does not delete the file from the main intranet, or any other person who has that folder synced.

Support has suggested  that this is a  behaviour that they want in the concept yet have said they are working to add a delete function to the system so that ir propagates the deleted changes through the system. While they cannot give me and ETA, or a roadmap they have said that this function is coming.  the defence was that it is to protect the items from deletion but the reality is that does not add up. since you could do the same in the intranet anyway. thats why we have backups and recycle bins and permissions right.

unfortunately you will always get push back from team members who struggle to use a webpage intranet. citing typically speed of access as opposed to a synced drive that works in windows explorer, but using bitrix with windows explorer is at this stage not fully functioning as you would expect. (IE Full Sync)

also there seems to be the same behavior when you move files and folders around in the windows explorer synced folder. i assume based on the same principal of not letting deletions throw through to the intranet.

Unfortunately the file system and the version control of the folders and files is a big impact for us and we cant bring our users over and have to find and alternative solution regardless of how cool i think the bitrix product is.

Cheers Chris :D

(PS i really do think you should state somewh ere obvious about the desktop sync behaviour)
