Are external additions in the replica (target) handled? RRS feed

  • Question


    If folders/files are placed in the replica (target) folder of a sync partnership, are they detected and deleted (because they’re not in the Source folder of the sync partnership).

  • No, if you create a file / folder in any of the replicas they can be tagged as new and synchronized to the other replica file / folders.


    There is a really good example of how the Microsoft Sync Framework was used to manage synchronization of files and folders in a PowerToy download called SyncToy (by the way SyncToy is the most popular PowerToy download on the Microsoft Download Center).  If you are interested, please give it a try and you can see the potential of what can be built using the file synchronization capabilities of the Microsoft Sync Framework.
