Q about Synchronize mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please could someone tell me what Synctoy would do in this scenario:

    I have 10 files on a laptop HD which I've backed up on to an external HD using Syntoy in echo mode.

    Since backing up I delete files 2 & 3 from my laptop HD and independently delete files 8 & 9 from the external HD.

    When I Synchronize using Synctoy will Synctoy copy the missing files to the respective HD so I end up with 10 files on each HD or will it delete files 3, 4, 8, & 9 leaving the remaining 6 files on each HD?

    [I'm using Syntoy to synchronize my image library. The echo function is a great way to back up as long as only the master (laptop HD) gets edited but I'm not sure what happens when both libraries get edited]

    Thanks for any replies.
