Force Echo to start over RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've several posts related to Echo not working as desired. For example, if a folder accidentally gets
    deleted from the Right Side (i.e. backup), then it will never be re-copied from the left side (assuming
    the left side goes unchanged).

    Is there a way to force SyncToy Echo to start over with a fresh comparison ?  Deleting both left
    and right dat files doesn't work.  Seems that the only solution is to delete and re-create
    the folder pair. 

    That seems very dangerous, as there's a possibility you won't re-create the pair correctly (e.g.
    with all the same options)

  • Hi -

    Deleting the left/right dat files both under the folders and in the same location where your configuration information is stored should reset the sync.
