Modifying an EagleFiler file from an Outside Process


I was wondering what would happen if:

a) a file stored in EF would be modified by an outside process
b) if the modification would happen while EF is running

The modification I’m referring to consist only in updating the file itself without changing any of its meta (name, etc.).

Would EF choke on this? Would EF notice the change? Will it update the internal indexes?



This page describes in more detail what you are allowed and not allowed to do. But the short answer is that your example is perfectly OK. EagleFiler will notice the change and update its indexes.
