synctoy suggestion... add a real move option RRS feed

  • Question

  • The one thing I wish that SyncToy would do is move a file from one location to another.
    I download podcasts all the time, but I can't do it at work.  So what I do is download them on my laptop  at night.
    Then at work the next day I would like to move them off of my laptop onto an external drive.
    The best I can do with SyncToy is "contribute" which leaves them on my laptop.
    I wish I could get a real move so that I don't have to go behind and actually delete the copies of my laptop.

  • Hi -

    Sorry SyncToy does not have plans to support a Move option. You should take a look into robocopy.exe ( which you should find on your Windows machine) which might suit your scenario better.

  • You could also write a batch job to do the move for you.
