is it possible to link same folders with different action? RRS feed

    Hi,

     

    I just wanted to check if the following synctoy2 behaviour is normal:

     

    1) I create a folder pair linking folder A to folder B with the following action : synchronisation

     

    2) I create a folder pair linking folder A to folder B (the very same folders) with the following action : echo.

     

    (I do this because it's faster than constantly switching actions in the same folder pair)

     

    The result is that folder pair 2 (echo) does not work properly. (Does not replicate deletes from source to target.) Also, obviously, I have two SyncToyxxxx.dat files showing un in Windows Explorer,)

     

    THEREFORE,

     

    I delete all my folder pairs, start over, recreate folder pair 1 (or 2, does not matter), and simply change action in the folder pair when I want to switch between Echo and Synchronize.

     

    Then every thing works fine. I can live with this workaround, but.

     

    What I'm wondering is, is this normal behaviour. Given that I backup important files, I would like to be reasonably sure Synctoy 2 was properly installed on my PC.

     

    Details: XPSP3. Used to use Synctoy 1.4, deleted all folder pairs and uninstalled it before installing this version. (I did a clean install òf version 2 using MSCONFIG.)

     

    Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks. And I do apologize for posting this previously in the wrong thread.

  • The answer is: Yes. You can switch the actions back and forth between synchronize and echo and SyncToy 2.0 will work for you.
