Mirror to Amazon Drive reuploads all files every time

Post by egurevich »

Hi.
For some reason SyncBackPro is not able to remember which files have not changed on Amazon Drive in Mirror mode. Instead it reuploads every single file again every time. I have 4 TB of data and it takes 1 month to reupload everything. Is there a way to fix this so that it only reuploads the files that changed and leaves the other files alone?
Thanks
Eli

This is what worked for me:

Follow these steps to delete and recreate the cloud database file:

1. Make a copy of your original profile (select the profile in the main window and press Ctrl-C, or right-click on the profile and select Copy from the pop-up menu) and give the copy a new name, e.g. New Cloud Backup Profile

2. Modify your original profile, go to the Cloud settings page

3. Click on 'Delete DB' button in the Cloud settings page to delete the cloud database file

4. Run the profile in manual mode (using ctrl + R)

5. When the Differences Window is displayed mass select all the identical files (from the Differences Window). Right click and choose "Use details from Source/Left" to copy properties from one side to another and continue the execution (note that this option will only copy the meta-data from source to destination and recreate the database).

In addition, when you mass-select files from Differences Window, you should select files that exist on both sides (with identical contents, but differ only in the file properties), otherwise the ‘Use details from Source/Left’ option will not visible in the pop-up menu (in other words, if that option is not visible in the pop-up menu, that means you have accidentally selected a file that is only on one side). You can use the Filters menu on the Differences Window to filter the file list.

6. Continue to profile run. Once the profile run is completed re-run the profile again and see if it works?

If you flag the option "Dont replace the new files with older" (or similar, I dont have the program in english) its the same result more easy.

When you modify the origin the date/time are also modified and the previous condition = "False" --> backup ok
