What Happens If the Connection Drops During Synchronization, Backup or Replication?

When ViceVersa overwrites an older file with a newer file, first it copies the new file to a temporary file in the destination folder. Only after the copy operation completes successfully, ViceVersa replaces the older file with the temporary file. So, in case of a connection failure only the temporary file is affected. Just run ViceVersa again when the connection is restored, the temporary file will be removed.

What if the connection is lost during the copy of a very large file? Does the transfer process for that file need to restart? Or is there some sort of block copy process going on under the hood?

Next time ViceVersa runs , the file is copied again.
