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

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

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

Thank you
