I'm synching two folders (local to remote server) for a website but want to check how the synchronize function works on windows 2008.

When synching the files is it possible that the file being synched will be invalid for a short time resulting in a 404 or is it done as a transacted file copy?

Windows 2008 has a MoveFileTransacted() function which allows the file to be overwritten without first deleting or losing a handle on the original file.

All other delete/rewrite type operations seem to have an instant which the file is either inaccessible or entirely not there.

I suppose I am really asking for clarification on how the synchronize function works.
