Enhancement Request RRS feed

  • Question

  • Great tool, thanks guys.


    A couple of suggestions to improve:


    1. The ability to "group" selected individual folder pairs to run as a single entity.


    2. The ability to simply update folder names within an existing pair. Eg to reflect a folder that has been renamed on the disk.


    3. More elegant handling of situations where .dat files may have been inadvertently been deleted from folders. Currently SyncToy appears to hang and needs to be killed off with task manager - and takes quite a while to die.


    4. Minor point, more space on the left (blue) part of the window to fully see longer folder pair names (or possibly the white area automatically re-size to fit the text?)


    Keep up the good work.

  • Hi John,


    Regarding hyour 3rd point, want to understand it better. Did you happen to delete the .dat file while a sync was in progress on the given folder pair?

  • Sorry for the delayed response Ashish I have been away.


    No, there was no sync in progress when the file was deleted.

  • I too wish that items 1,2, & 4 were features.  I think it severely limits this tool by not have options  1 & 2.
