Something is wrong with local versus published file syncing? I have to "Confirm Delete File" every local file I delete on home computer, when I get to work computer.

I use SiteBuilder at home and at work. When I delete files at home and open SiteBuilder at work I have to “Confirm Delete File” all local files I deleted at home. I'm deleting LOTS of files daily.

1. What is the path on my work hard drive where my local website files are stored?

2. How can I safely erase local files so a fresh copy of the published files are downloaded every time I arrive at work?

I guess a better question is ...

3. What is wrong with the local versus published file syncing on my work computer?

Please answer all three questions.  Not just the last one,
Thank you.

1) Assuming you are using Windows 8 or 10, the path to your files is C:\ProgramData\Homestead\Homestead SiteBuilder\data\user\Sites There is a folder for each site you have. Programdata is a hidden folder, so you will need to put this in the explorer address bar, or tell Windows to show hidden objects.

2) If you delete the folder from one of the computers, the next time you open the site, it will download the published copy.

3) Nothing is wrong. When you delete files from one Sitebuilder, it deletes them from the published site. When you connect the second Sitebuilder it checks its files vs the published site and notifies you of the discrepancies. That is how it works.
