Files copied, timestamps not updating

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Files copied, timestamps not updating

Post by rwgreene999 »

Using SyncbackFree V8.5.115.0, target is in Onedrive as accessed by AirDrive
On nightly scheduled run, new files on local drive are copied to OneDrive. But the timestamps on the OneDrive copy are listed at the time of the copy, not the original file's timestamp. Using windows file copies, or Beyond Compare, I can update the timestamps, but SyncBack is not updating the timestamps. I suspect this means that the files will be copied again and besides, I want the original file timestamps anyway.

The files copied again Tuesday night and again on Wednesday night, except Wednesday night it updated the datetime stamp.

I am facing the same issue.

I have a mirror profile and the target is a OneDrive folder. I tried to pause sync and even close the OneDrive application but each time I am running the profile, all files appear that they will be copied, despite the fact that no changes were made to any of files in source.

For anyone having the same issue.

The issue occurs (at least in my case) when the File-on-Demand setting was enabled.

In Settings / File-on-Demand there is a checkbox Save space and download files as you use them which when checked, the files are not necessarily stored locally, and that messes up SyncBack Free.
