    @matt: If two people have the same file open at the same time, first write will use the current file name, second write will append the name of the file server that the second write occurred on.

    Example. Donovan and Orin are working on the same file "TilleyHatConspiracy.docx". Donovan is working on it on FS-SEA and Orin is working on it from FS-MEL. Donovan saves the file first, so Donovan's version will be TilleyHatConspiracy.docx. Orin saves after Donovan, so his version will be TilleyHatConspiracy-FS-MEL.docx.

    On this webinar (How to modernize Windows Server File Shares with Azure File Sync), why would he start showing it from the middle, then go to the end and then to the beginning? makes it very hard to follow, not very smart.
