When i unmark folders on filters, the files are not erased from destination

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

When i unmark folders on filters, the files are not erased from destination

Post by oceanrider »

In a mirror profile, if I delete a file or a folder from source, the task delete the file or folder from destination. However, it don't seems to work on selected files or folder chosen on the "file and folder selection window".
I had previously mark some folders to sync with Synback ; I unmark one of these folders, but after a sync, the folder is not deleted from the destination.

Is it possible to ask Syncback to do a perfect mirror of the files present on source AND files selected on "file and folder selection", deleting files or folders unmarked ?

Thanks to all

Hi,

If a file/folder is deselected from "Choose sub-directories and files" settings page then it will be ignored from both Source and Destination, hence the deselected folder was not deleted from destination. Please read this forum post for additional details:

Thank you.

Hi, there is a change we've made for V8 (currently in beta) that should help:
