Slightly confused by your term "comparison" - if you want to do a comparison (only), without processing any files, presumably you want to see what it found (else why bother?). Assuming you mean a full run of a profile, these might help

http://support.2brightsparks.com/knowle ... dow-prompt
http://support.2brightsparks.com/knowle ... can-be-run
http://support.2brightsparks.com/knowle ... nd-running

Certain modes (for example, When > Hot Key, When > Changes, When > Insert, running on detection of a device running SyncBack Touch, and so on) have sub-options to run Unattended or Interactively, depending whether the default for the mode in question is to prompt or not. Running via command-line always suppresses all prompts.

If you have specific situations in mind not covered above, you'd need to give more detail.

Suppressing SB from prompting may force SB to follow alternate logic paths. Details are provided in the Help if so.

by default; some special parameters to modify that are available (details in Help under Command Line Parameters)

Many thanks, cliffhanger.

Sorry for confusing with that term. Yes, that's right, I want to see what, which files will be changed, overwritten, precessed before doing the sync. I am used to do it because I used FreeFileSync for a long time.

Thank you for the links. I will have a look.

Alright, thank you, at the moment I am satisfied with the information above.

Thank you very much again.
