SyncToy 2.1 Feature Request RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Thank you for this great software. However, I would like to see a feature that would seem an obvious addition to me. And please tell me if I'm just missing out on something here.

    It should be possible to "repopulate" a target from the source if files have been accidentally (or for some reason) deleted (from the target).

    I have a NTFS folder as source, folder on a Linux/Samba as network drive is the target. Configured action for the folder pair: contribute.

    First run worked fine. I then accidentally deleted files from the target. Ran SyncToy again to create a new backup of these files - no change detected. What worked was to newly create an identical folder pair and run it but that shouldn't be necessary.
