How to One-Time clone from source to destination?

Post by pstein »

Assume I have multiple (big) directory trees (local and remote) which I synced a few week ago with SyncBackSE.
Both directory trees are changed slightly during these weeks.

Now I decided to use to the state of the remote on the local system as well.

When I call now the corresponding SyncBack Profiles then SyncBackSE tells me that
there are some newer files on the local (=dirty) computer which need to be copied to the remote system.
Furthermore SyncbackSE shows me some files which have been changed locally and remotely.

I don't want such a syncing.

How do I tell SyncBackSE to
- copy files from the "good" remote space to the local hard disk if they exist on both system and they are different.
- copy files from the "good" remote space to the local hard disk if the do NOT exist locally
- delete them on the local space if they do not exist remotely
- update its own file statistics (for future syncing; Important!)

This should be a one-time operation. From now on SyncBack should following (again) the previous syncing rules using the updated file statistics.

How can I achieve this without rewriting all the profiles?

Hi,

Can you please export your profile configuration (that you are using to sync files to remote system) and send it to [email protected], so that we can verify your current profile settings and suggest further on your issue.

Thank you.
