I synced my cards the other day, but now I keep on getting this message:

Your decks here and on AnkiWeb differ in such a way that they can't be merged together, so it's necessary to overwrite the decks on one side with the decks from the other.
If you choose download, Anki will download the collection from AnkiWeb, and any changes you have made on your computer since the last sync will be lost.
If you choose upload, Anki will upload your collection to AnkiWeb, and any changes you have made on AnkiWeb or your other devices since the last sync to this device will be lost.
After all devices are in sync, future reviews and added cards can be merged automatically.

Why does it come up and how can i stop it from coming up the whole time?
