Rclone sync --delete-after issue with open/locked files on windows local


Thanks for developing rclone, it’s very useful !

However, I have the following issue:
my local system is windows server
my remote is dropbox
I’m doing a rclone sync --delete-after every 15min to synchonize directories & files
When some files are locked/open on the windows local system, the files are still deleted on remote.
Is there a way to avoid this ?
I don’t want to use rclone copy because when files are deleted on local, I should delete them on remote.

Thanks a lot for your great job !

Are you saying that if rclone enounters a locked file then it deletes it off dropbox? That shouldn’t happen!

Can you show some logs (with -vv) of the problem?
