What happens to old action items on the Omni Sync Server when I delete them via one of the clients? Do they stay around in some sort of hidden “flagged as deleted tombstone” mode and slow down syncing, or do they get fully deleted from the omni sync server database as if they never existed?
Many other syncing programs use tombstones (like 1Password) to let all devices know that an item has been deleted. And I worry that Omni Sync works the same way and that deleted items stay on the server and bog it down with “deleted” data.
This worry leads to me making less separate actions than I’d like to.
I’ve heard that the sync server is actually just a bunch of zip files with a chain of atomic add/modify/delete changes in each zip, and that the chain is condensed every time all devices are at the same point on the chain. In that case, I guess you’re not using tombstones, and that it’s safe for me to flood the database with 1000 items and then delete them again, without ever worrying that deleted items are going to slow down future syncing?
