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

After update, SyncBack no more "sees" the files in destination folder. Every time it tryes to copy all files from source folder, as if the destination folder was empty.

Hi,

Are you backing-up files to/from a local OneDrive folder on Windows 10? If yes, you need to un-tick the option "Ignore NTFS junction points (reparse points)" from:

Modify profile > Expert > Compare Options > Attribute settings page

This is due to the new OneDrive changes in Windows 10 fall creators update. More details here:

Thank you.

Thank you very much.
Here you can find a translation of the solution for the italian version of SyncBack:

1. Nella schermata principale di SyncBack, clic su un profilo (tutta la riga del profilo viene evidenziata, normalmente in blu).
2. Clic sul menu Profili, in alto a sinistra.
3. Clic sulla seconda opzione: Modifica.
4. Clic su Opzioni di confronto.
5. Clic su Attributi.
6. De-seleziona la voce Ignora i junction points NTFS (reparse poins).
Queste operazioni sono da ripetere per ogni profilo!
