  • Synctoy Help system tells me that Synctoy can perform five actions on folder pairs, but only three are listed. What happened to Subscribe and Combine?

    Synctoy 2.0 beta, version 2.0.0.0

  • Hi -

    Sorry - we have no plans currently to bring the Combine option back. You could looking into using the Contribute scenario to ensure that no deletes happen.

  • Those two actions have been removed for SyncToy 2.0. We will ensure that we update the Help notes with this information when we release.

  • Why why why was Combine eliminated from Synctoy?

    Imagine this scenario:  My dumb colleague accidentally deletes 15 important files and then syncs our two machines.  With normal sync, those files are also deleted on my machine, which I don't want to ever happen.  With Combine, no matter what my dumb colleague does, he can't destroy any files on my machine because Combine never deletes.

    Am I mistaken?

  • Dear Deepa,

    Please see my post (quoted below) of 2/23/2009 re Combine:

    Any comments would be appreciated, and if I'm misinformed, please correct me.  Thanks.
