Ability to automatically sync a file

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have an encrypted folder disguised as a large file.

 

Until recently it would automatically sync when I closed it.  Now, however, it doesn't update leaving me with older versions of the files within if I open on another device (ie my PC rather than laptop).

 

Could a file be able to be tagged so as to be updated regardless of whether it appears to have changed or not?

 

Thanks

The removal of the time stamp resolved the problem.
