SyncToy 2 command line RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I need a command line switch to enable me to synchronize by filename, not file extension.

    For Example to Sync:

    C:\NurseryRhymes\MotherGoose.wri, SimpleSimon.txt, Hansel&Gretel.wri

    with

    E:\NurseyRhymes\MotherGoose.docx, SimpleSimon.docx

    I want Hansel & Gretel to sync, but not Mother Goose or Simple Simon.

  • synctoy is based on the filesync provider and I'm 99% sure that the sync file provider does not have an option to do anything that involves syncing files that are not the exact same name on both sides.  All the filter options are around excluding and including files but not syncing files of not the same name.  HTH's.
