Re: page modified but... really?



Hi keeweel! 

Same issue here, I experienced similar using with Windows 7 without
encryption, Windows 10 with or without Bitlocker, Debian 8 with LUKS. So
I think, this issue is independent from encryption. By the way, I often
get this warning, when cloud-syncing client synchronizing the actually
edited page (I'm using owncloud client, but maybe same issue with other
clients). When this happening, owncloud-client finding confliction and
create a new file with same name and .conflict extension. 

This is only my observation, but I interested to yours and others
experiences. Yes, overwriting function should be useful, but lack of
this function maybe has technical reasons.
