Files without Folder

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

Files without Folder

Post by Limerick »

Hello All,

Stupid question maybe...
I would like to know if it would be possible to sync, mirror or whatever files contained in several subfolders without mirroring these subfolders.

For exemple a Folder #1 which contains subfolders A, B, C and D, each one with one file (a, b, c and d), would be mirrored (or sync) in Folder #2 which would contain only files a, b, c and d, but without subfolders A, B, C and D.

Is it clear enough... :oops:

Thanks,

Lim.

Thank you very much Swapna for your quick answer.

Sorry that it is not possible, I'll try to find a trick to be able to have all files in a single folder...

For those who are looking for this feature, after a day of search, I have found this very useful tool, FolderMerger which does the work easily and efficientely.

Unfortunately, it requires a manual input before letting SyncBack doing its automated job... :(

But perhaps, it could give a good idea to the developpers ! :D

Well it is nice tool, but it requires to dump each time in an empty forlder. So this is not adapted to a synchronization process...

I think I have to find for another solution... or hope for Synckack enhancement ;)
