Feature request: Check Contents of Files enhancement RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    I am using SyncToy to sync archive.PST files from a users laptop to a server.   The files only change when the AutoArchive feature runs.   However, Outlook modifies the timestamp on the PST file every time it runs.   Consequently, SyncToy copies over the whole file every time.

    The Check Contents of Files feature does a hash to make sure that files of the same size, name and timestamp are indeed the same file.  If the feature could compare the two files and if they are the same size and name then do not copy the file over, despite the timestamp being different.  

    Right now, I have to set up a different Scheduled task to do the Sync every few weeks rather than just a daily sync check, where nothing happens if the file is the same.
