I’ve recently started using Unison to keep all my photos in sync between my Windows desktop machine, a Windows laptop and my Mac mini server.
It works really well, however the other day I started seeing the following error:
Fatal error: Warning: inconsistent state.
The archive file is missing on some hosts.
For safety, the remaining copies should be deleted.
Archive ar604df3 on host HOLLY is MISSING
Archive ar4fcd50c1d8c24915dbcbc359c32578fe on host Hal.local should be DELETED
Please delete archive files as appropriate and try again.
I couldn’t locate the archive file on Hal (the Mac mini) to delete it, until eventually I found it in:
Once deleted, Unison continued happily on its way.
