SyncToy definitions RRS feed

  • Question

  • In SyncToy, which I have set to contribute, what are the definitions of the following:

    Delete                 (what did it delete and why)

    Overwrite            (what did it overwrite and why)

    Rename              (what did it rename and why)

    New                    (new what and why)

    Create Folder     (why did it create a folder)

    Microsoft doesn't give the definitions for any of these.  They would do well to provide these definitions for dummies like me. Do they refer to files, characters within files or folders, or what?

  • hi Henry

    what action do you use to sync your files?

    I always use sync

    than the mean

    Delete                 (File name) was deleted in one of the folders

    Overwrite            (File name) was Overwriten in one of the folders

    Rename              (File name) was Renamed in one of the folders

    New                    (File name) was add in one of the folders

    Create Folder      (File name) was add in one of the sub folders

    hope this answers your question 

    kind regards
