How to force sync/echo procedure? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm using SyncToy 2.0 to have a fresh copy of my documents on a remote location. Everything goes fine untill I delete (occasionaly) one file on the "Right" side.
    Next time echo (i'm using echo method) runs, i'd like to have this deleted file to be restored on the right side automatically. Is it possible?

  • I had the same problem. I deleted a dir on the right side, ran "echo", and synctoy did not copy the left dir back over.

  • SyncToy does not track the deletes on the right unless it is in synchronization mode. Maybe next version.

    The only way i know to fix it is to either copy the files manually or delete the folder pair and then recreate them.

  • the restore can only happen if there is some update on the left side. then the deleted right side file can be synced from left side to right side again.

  • PTMark, baoke, thanks for the reply. I guess this method doesn't suits me. Looks like I'll have to use some other tool. Alas...
