Sync'ing to same location but different device. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am try to get a backup scenario working where I sync files to a removable storgae device (USB Hard Disk). On certain days of the week I will take this device to off site storage and then replace the device will one exactly the same type of device then have its content sync with the same folder pairs as well. In other words, I will have 2 or 3 disks syncing with a specific set of folders and these disks will be rotated in and out of off-site storage.

    The problem is that when I run the job, the program tells me it is looking for changes in the original location (the left folder) but then says there is nothing top copy when the right folder is completely empty as this is a new disk. The device has the same drive letter and folder name on the usb disk so I cannot understand what is wrong.


    Help please!
