Hello everybody, from 12.30 on 10/15/2019 the Dropbox Api java does not force the renaming of the existing files. Load the file xyz.pdf and dropbox, correctly, assigns me the id <id: xxx> but when I re-upload the same file xyz.pdf the rename does not work: I expected the file to be renamed to xyz (1).pdf and the id returned <id: zzz>
I use dbxClient V2
below part of the code with which I impose the rename UploadBuilder fileUploader = dropboxClient.files (). UploadBuilder (pathFileName); fileUploader.withMode (WriteMode.ADD) .withMute (Boolean.TRUE) .withAutorename (Boolean.TRUE);
Apologies for the very late reply. Our forum software did not notify me of this post unfortunately.
Anyway, in this case were you uploading the same exact file content? Even with WriteMode.ADD, if you just upload the same exact file content that is already uploaded at that path, it won't add another copy. You can find more information in the WriteMode documentation. Here's the relevant part in this case:
If the target path refers to a file with identical contents, nothing gets written; no conflict.
