Unable to managing Pairs properly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 20 pairs targetting 4 PCs. These pairs are created by a script. I would like to be able to just change my script (adding a new pair, or changing some options) and simply rerun.

    However if a pair already exist, no change are applied

       Suggestion: change this behavior.

    Then I tried to delete the pair first.  Since I cannot check for its existence: so I have to delete blindly. If the pair does not exist, the GUI app stops and I have to acknowledge the popup "A folder pair with the name xxxx was not found", before my script can continue

       Suggestion: add an option like QUIET, or simply do not 'popup', since the errorcode is sufficient or add an option to check the existence of a pair.

    Did I miss something, or is there any way to accomplish proper management of the pairs, without reverting to GUI.

    Another suggestions: allow grouping of pairs, to permit for example the execution of all pairs related to a PC, or all the pairs related to a specific folder

  • Hi CannelleLaurin,

         Thanks for your suggestions firstly! We will consider improve the user experience in the future version.

    I shoud say for now, syncToyCmd.exe dose not support to group folder pairs, or check if one folder pairs is existing or not. For a new environment, you can just do delete then re-create all of them forcely. But initial sync may cost time.
