Problems with svn folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • When syncing a lot of folders that have svn information, SyncToy goes crazy.
    For every \.svn\entries folder it takes about three seconds, both cpu cores go to 100% and so eventually does memory usage. At some point this causes SyncToy to abort with an 'out of memory' message.
    Is this a known problem?

    On a related note, it seems to me that it must be possible to optimize the 'echo' action a lot. After all, it just means 'backup'. But I can see that, even when complete folders were deleted on the source, SyncToy will wander through all files and subfolders on the target, deleting them one by one..

  • Are you using version 1.4 or 2.0?  If you are using 2.0 can you try 1.4 and let us know if you have a similar issue?


    Also, please let us know the specifics. 


    1) What are you synchronizing from and to. 

    2) Is there a network share involved?

    3) Approx how many files are being sync'ed
