To help protect against accidentally overwriting or deleting files,
hoard runs some consistency
checks prior to running any operations.
To skip running the checks, run
hoard with the
--force flag. There is not currently a way to disable
This check compares the paths used previously with a given hoard to the ones resolved for the current operation. If any of these paths differ, a warning is displayed and the operation(s) canceled.
hoard logs information about successful operations to a directory that is intended to be
synchronized with the main hoards directory. This information is used to determine if a given file was
last modified by a remote system. If so, a warning is displayed and the operation(s) canceled.
