not handling changes in both locations RRS feed

  • Question


    Left folder:  user/synctoytest


    right folder: desktop/synctoytest


    Set to: synchronize


    Set to check file contents.


    Created test.txt in left folder.  Synced.  test.txt appears in both.  So far, so good.


    opened test.txt in left folder, typed "left test."  saved.


    opened test.txt in right folder, typed "right test."  saved.


    Ran Synctoy. 


    Each folder only contains one file, test.txt.  Opened txt file.  It reads "right test."


    I understand right test was modified most recently.  But shouldn't synctoy check the contents of the files and see that they are different?  Shouldn't I end up with two files in each folder?

  • Sorry for that. but with synchronize action, sync toy will always keep the latest modified files and sync it to the other side. that cause different situations. maybe you like to keep all the files but mostly users like to keep the latest one.

    for the older one is out of date. Smile
