Expert Mode: Simple, History
Simple | History
This page shows you the history of a profile, e.g. when it was run, where it was run, the result, etc. This is similar to the log files except it's provided in table form. The history is also recorded separately from the log files and uses less disk space, so you may want to keep a longer history. A profiles history is also sent to the SyncBack Management Service ( Pro version only) to enable remote monitoring of profiles. Note that no history is kept of simulated runs.
If you right-click on the history then a pop-up menu appears. Using this pop-up menu you can choose which columns to show or hide. See the Columns section below for the meaning of each column.
Scripts ( Pro version only) have access to most of this information via the SBHistory object.
