Flat file copy (ignore folder structure)

Post by morice »

Is it possible to only copy the contents of (sub)folders into a single destination folder, without the original folder structure?

Hi,

SyncBack does not support flattening the folder structure. It copies files on Source to the same folder structure on Destination. For additional details, please read this KB article:

Thank you.

Thanks, nice to see there is an article about it. I probably could have found that.

Though i think the reasoning for not implementing it 'because it could potentially be dangerous' is a little silly, as this program is already capable of many much much more dangerous options as is. I think the users are cable of discerning the pro's and cons of such a feature. And the fact that it would void the restore option seems obvious to me, but a simple warning would probably suffice if it were to be implemented.

What to do with duplicate filenames during the same run, well that would be something to think about. But i'd be fine with it being up to the user to avoid that happening.
