Failed sync = empty contacts?



  • Hello.
    I use DavX as my main address book . But i’m having serious problems: it’s getting emptyed every time when a sync fails. Sometimes DNS not resolves the first try, bad cell tower coverage, server is down - failed sync, and empty contact list.
    Wouldn’t it be good to have some sort of buffer, and when it does the sync, perform a checksum check to ensure contacs were downloaded before deleting existing ones?

    This should not happen. There must be some severe problem.

    Sometimes DNS not resolves the first try, bad cell tower coverage, server is down - failed sync, and empty contact list.

    DAVx⁵ will only delete local contacts after receiving a full list of remote contacts, and when contacts have been deleted there.

    DAVx⁵ won’t delete contacts on failed syncs.

    Please provide steps to reproduce, Web server and CalDAV/CardDAV server logs taken while the problem occurs, DAVdroid debug info (DAVdroid / Settings / Debug info) and verbose DAVdroid logs etc as described in [READ BEFORE POSTING] What’s required to diagnose a problem.



  • Sorry for disturbance. I have flashed LineageOS port today and the problem seems to be gone.
