SyncToy 2.0 : pair broken RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    With SyncToy 1.4, on "echo" pairs, when I had any doubt about the synchronisation (i.e. perhaps some files have been missed), I used to click "preview" while holding the "shift" key. This cleared the "pair memory" somewhere and ensured that SyncToy would synchronise thinking that it was the first time.

    With SyncToy 2.0 (RTM included), when I preview while holding the "shift" key, I have an error message about the destination drive not being accessible and the pair is definitively broken.

    Thanks for all.

  • I'm sorry that feature has been taken out in the 2.0 version. The only way of doing that now is to delete the folder pair and recreate it.

  • Ok, I understand that this feature does not exist no more.

    BUT, in SyncToy 2.0 RTM, if you hold on [shift] while clicking "preview", you break your folder pair and this is not normal.

    It is as if SyncToy 2.0 was a 1.4 migrated to Visual Studio 2005 while some events where still active but bad handled, bad translated. It's a pure supposition

    best regards.
