RUN: Does the folder being processed have to be deleted and recopied eash time?

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

RUN: Does the folder being processed have to be deleted and recopied eash time?

Post by jackdashack » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:30 pm

I'm copying from a dedicated folder on C: It is mirrored on a USB Drive called USB Drive F:. Works pretty well. =D> But it seems as if each time I drag a fold into the C: dedicated folder, it will copy C: contents on a run but seems to delete the current contents of that folder on F: and all just to add a new different folder. Is that right? Can't if I drag a new folder/file in C:Dedicated Folder can't it just add that to F: Drive without deleted the contents of F: and copying all over again?

Clear as mud?

I will be grateful for any assistance. jack ":-Dx :?

Hi,

Only an Intelligent Sync profile in SyncBackPro/SE/Lite versions supports file move/rename detection (with the options “Detect file renames on left/right"). If a file is moved to a new folder on Source then the Sync profile detects this and moves the same file to a new folder on destination (instead of deleting and recopying the file). For additional details, read this forum post:

If you do not own a copy of SyncBackPro/SE/Lite versions and wish to test it's functions, you are welcome to try our fully functional SyncBack, which we offer a free 30-day evaluation.

https://www.2brightsparks.com/assets/software/SyncBackSE_Setup.exe

http://www.2brightsparks.com/assets/software/SyncBackLite_Setup.exe

If you do decide to purchase, the serial number will convert the 'trial' to the 'registered' version.

Thank you

You are the nice person that has helped me via support email the last few days. So nice of you to answer here. I will re-read this until I get what you are saying. Still fairly new to expert options. Thanks so much again. A helpful person you are! =D> :lol: =D>
