The «Notifications» tab summarises various information. Version conflicts, updates and invalid files are listed here.
To ensure the myCloud Desktop is always up to date, new software versions are automatically installed on your computer. As soon as the installation has completed successfully, you will receive a notification.
Conflicts during synchronisation
File conflicts can arise when multiple versions of a file exist and myCloud Desktop cannot determine which file it should adopt. In this case, myCloud Desktop saves both versions of the file and adds an affix to the file name of one of them. The additional text consists of the word «conflict», your computer name and the date and time at which the conflict occurred.
How can I resolve conflicts?
Conflicts frequently occur with Office files. As a rule, you as the user must decide for yourself which version you want to keep and delete the others accordingly. For Word and PowerPoint, Microsoft offers a mode for resolving conflicts: conflict resolution mode in Word
Not all files can be synchronised. If one or more files in your myCloud folder cannot be stored on myCloud.ch, you will be informed of this under Notifications. A list of all file formats that are excluded from synchronisation is available here.
