> My partner and I settled on a solution that batch-syncs directories before going on to syncing files. This means we are creating directories which the sample solution does not create: namely empty directories with no files. Is this a problem? I feel like syncing these directories should be ok since it still fits the project criteria.
The sample solution is correct in that it syncs/copies files (term them regular files if it helps) and does not sync directories, empty or otherwise. If you are creating/syncing empty directories it will be a problem in marking as the outputs will not match. It has been stated a number of times on this forum that we are syncing files, not directories.
