What is the process, if the synchronization of same file has to be done on different machines?

Answer:

The problem that arises due to the synchronizing the same file on different machines will have an impact on the overall system. This will happen due to outdated file on one system has to overwrite or an error might occur when trying to overwrite the file due to signature problem. The process that can be followed is as follows:
1. Load history files that consist of the information regarding the server’s transaction.
2. Check with the server that the new entries exist when the other machine’s history file will be copied. If there is no history file then all the data gets copied successfully.
3. The history information that is added will be stored in the internal collection and it will be written in the local file. Add history data returned from server to internal collection.
