Automatic retry on files with upload errors
Currently if there is an issue with a file upload (the one I'm currently running into is the "File may be locked or in use" error) Box Sync requires a manual step where you click the Retry button in the Box Sync tray icon context menu.
This is problematic for me because I'm trying to full automate our build pipeline. In my scenario we generate a nightly build, zip it up and copy it to the Box Sync folder. The problem for me has been that it appears that Box Sync is a bit too hasty and attempts to upload the file before the lock has been removed from the copy process.
When Box Sync encounters this type of issue it seems reasonable for Box Sync to retry the upload later automatically.
I think a generic feature for this problem could be to attempt to do an automatic retry on a timer for all upload errors. This could be an optional feature that users can opt into from the settings menu.
- A checkbox for automatic upload retry on errors
- Perhaps a number of retry configuration?
Agree, just woke up to discover 4 files that failed due to network error, but they didn't try automatically???
