Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Terrasync - Known Issues

Failed to remove file

.terrasync_cache files can not be deleted. You will see errors in console. There is not much to do other then delete the .terrasync_cache files manually and then run FlightGear again to let it recreate the up-to-date .terrasync_cache files.

insert powershell script here to help with this for those that want to try.
