Copying a profile with "Ignore new files/folders" breaks *_sel.db files

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

Copying a profile with "Ignore new files/folders" breaks *_sel.db files

Post by sbfpls »

With SyncBackFreeV9.4.2.15 on Windows10x64 make a new Profile ("First"), in "Choose sub-directories and files" set the 2 top options to "Ignore new files" and "Ignore new folders", run it, make a copy of it ("Second"), add a new file to Source folder, set the 2 top options to "Include", run Second:
it should detect a change (the new file) and do something about it, but it just appears "no differences were found"; delete Second_sel.db and it works, restore it again and it doesn't.

I already sent a bug report, but I got "freeware users are not eligible for ticketed technical support", so maybe the issue is only on my end?

Is it safe to delete *_sel.db files once in a while?

This is not a bug. I have answered via your parallel support ticket.

Thank you.
