If I move files into different folders, is SyncBack Pro able to see the files have just been moved? Or will it re-upload

Post by RichardLapthorn »

Hi there,

So I have mirrored backups going to local drives as well as offsite to Google Drive, everything is working as it should but I am conscious that at some stage I may need to rearrange the folder structure on the source drive (The actual files within will not change)

Will SyncBack Pro recognise that these files are still present just in different folders and move them accordingly? Or will it delete the files on the destination and start transferring them from the source again?

I may have several terabytes of content that needs to be reorganised in this fashion, so this could prove to be a big issue for me.

Cheers

Hi,

Only an Intelligent Sync profile supports file move/rename detection using the options “Detect file renames on left/right". This feature is not available in Backup or Mirror profile types.

Please refer to this forum post for additional details:
