SyncToy 2.1 -- Which is source machine, and which is target?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I create/modify/delete files on my office machine, and I want them synced to my study machine, which will serve as the backup.


    Elementary question -- I assume that my office machine is the source machine, and my study machine is the target.  Is that correct?

  • Yes this is correct.

    For what the scenario you described, if you only want your study machine to serve as a backup, meanining you want one way sync, and you also want deletes to propagate to the backup, you will want to setup your folder pair as follows:

    Left: Office Machine

    Right: Study Machine

    Mode: Echo
