If the files are indeed the same, we should not duplicate them.
Can you verify if the two sets of files have the same modification date and file size?
You should be able to find these in the details view of windows explorer, and/or under their properties.
If they do match, and you are willing to help us figure out this issue, let me know and I will have a Forum Moderator contact you about getting your SkyDrive logs.
Interesting.. can you tell if it is making progress? The system tray should show how much has been uploaded/downloaded.
Simply accessing a file does not require a resync, only actions that modify the file will cause it to do that.
Are you syncing the same files using both Mesh and SkyDrive? That may potentially change the way the files are syncing, the logs would know more.
You can find the SkyDrive logs at %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\SkyDrive\logs
I can't guarantee they'll be very readable :)
If you notice something out of the ordinary or are still having trouble syncing, let me know and I will see if a forum moderator can request the logs from you. We can then take a closer look.
I think I just ran into this issue with a Visual Studio web project. Was getting errors when running the site indicating a manifest was mismatched with the dll. I kept deleting the compiled dlls and recompiling and eventually they should show up again. I thought this was a VS/project properties problem but it seems like the culprit might be SkyDrive making duplicates of files to preserve mutual edits somehow?
Deleting the /bin/ folder contents in explorer and waiting for SkyDrive to finish syncing before recompiling solved this problem for me.
