Sync left to right does not delete left to right and does not "move" files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been running Sync toy "echo" to back up my file folder (containing many subfolders). Upon reinstallation of my computer I just checked that the backupfile and the original file had the same size and I did some spot checks. Everything seemed to be fine and I reinstalled my computer. After transferring the backup to the computer and starting working with some of the older files I realised something was wrong and I would very much appreciate some help sorting this out. Folders that I have re-arranged (moved files, changed folder or file names etc.) seem to have both new and old files and folder set ups and this is very disturbing and confusing! Some files also seem to be missing but I am not yet sure this is the case (that would of course be the most serious issue). To be able to sort out my situation I need to understand what has happened. Can anyone inform me? Thanks in advance!
