Synchtoy not working as expected when one file moved from one subfolder to another RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I have \folder\sub1\filea and move filea to \folder\sub2, which means I have deleted from \sub1 and added to \sub2, this is not duplicated in the right hand side regardless of which action I chose.  The adding of filea to \sub2 gets synchronized on the right hand side, but the deletion of filea from \sub1 does not.  This is regardless of whether I chose synchronize or echo, and from the description of echo, the deletions should take place.  Am I doing something wrong or is this an error in the program (or is the program not set up to do that).

  • Hi -

    What SyncToy version do you have? ANd what kind of filesystem do you have on the right hand side? (NTFS/FAT). It looks like the problem is that we are detecting the file on the right hand side has been changed and so we do not want to delete it.

    Thanks
