QuestionDropBox Style App Pin

A while back I posted questions about this, then walked away. Now I'm considering going back at it again.

The basic idea was to use an enhancement of FileSystemWatcher that I found here (I think it was this one) that solves some issues like multiple events firing for the same file/folder. It works really well and that's not my question.

The big issues I ran into are:
  1. How to handle multiple versions of the same file being dropped into the watch folder on different PC's at the same time. With latency, I guess I could always take the last file, but it's still a concern.
  2. How to deal with a file or folder being deleted or edited during a sync. Example, user creates a file/folder, the the sync starts, then as it's syncing, deletes it? or opens it with some app?
I tried to do some file locking as soon as the sync starts, but it's tricky to get the timing right.
The summary of this is, what's the right way to manage files & folders like DropBox does regardless of what's happening to a file or folder?

I'd appreciate some insight.

Thanks
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
