I wish I knew more about Unison File Sync..... but I don't, and I know even less about Linux, although I do use it at work infrequently.
Does this sync function trigger automatically, or do you manually trigger it? (am just curious here..)
Have you searched in the invisible directories for your files? By that I mean does Unison have some invisible folders somewhere on your drive where they might be stored?
Past that, I wish I could offer more help.
The sync function is something I have to trigger.
I've done a full search for the files, although I did realize I had some backed up on my home computer, which was a huge relief. On the mac, I did a "find . -name index.aglx.gz -print" and couldn't find the missing files. I tried searchlight as well.
Unison stores all it's info in the ~/.unison directory, but it doesn't store any files there, just logs of the last-changed files so that it can synchronize. It uses rsync, if you are familiar with this. I expect this is the same command doing much of the work with Time Machine.
I suspect part of my problem is that I'm expecting the Mac to be a true unix machine, and it's it's a unique sort of hybrid. Thanks for your suggestions!
