Microsoft Sync Framework Change Detection Only RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All - 

    I am working with the Microsoft Sync Framework version 2.1 in C# and am trying to do what I believe to be a simple task. I would like to use the framework to detect changes to a folder full of files since the last run. I do not need to synchronize/replicate the folder to any destination, I merely want to know which files were added, modified, and removed since the last run. I believe the metadata file associated with the FileSyncProvider keeps track of this data, but I am having a hard time figuring out how to collect the changes, as all examples I have found show how to synchronize between two directories.

    Is there a way to get just the list of changes? Do I need to use the GetChangeBatch() method? If so could you please provide an example? Any guidance is appreciated.
