Avoiding unwanted renames in target folder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have identically-named folders on machine A and machine B. My goal is to edit files on machine A, then copy any new or changed files to machine B. When I try to do this, the preview shows the correct list of new or changed files to be copied, but also a large number of renames on machine B, all of which look like Operation=Rename, Source file=X.cpp, Source path=\\B\MyFolder, Target=X.1.cpp, Target path=\\B\MyFolder. Why is SyncToy doing this, and how can I stop it from doing these. I do not want or need any renames (no files were in fact renamed on machine A). SyncToy 2.1, Action=Contribute.
