Update only file matches on both sides? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does SyncToy have a way to update only the files on both sides where there is a filename match on both sides, and not add unmatched files to either side? I'm looking for a replacement for PowerDesk, whose sync feature has a checkbox "update missing files" that I can uncheck. Thanks.

  • Thanks for confirming this. Maybe it's something that could be considered as an enhancement at some point.
