Diferences window opens with no differences on some profiles

Post by mightyoakbob »

Hi,
I have several profiles all doing much the same thing, mirror copying to various NAS boxes for backup purposes.
The profiles are simple not complex.

When no differences are found most profiles never open the differences window.
Two of my profiles always open the differences window after a scan even if there is nothing listed as a differnence.

How can I find out why the difference window opens when it's empty?
How can I fix this?

Thank you.

Bob.

The differences screen shows empty when due to your filter settings the differences screen is empty.

Modify each offending profile and select "Compare Options" then tick "Do not show the Differences screen if it is empty (due to filter settings)".

Thank you for trying to help me.

I have already found that option but all of my profiles have it switched off. Two profiles open the differences window every time even when empty and the other 4 do not and this from the same source disc. What is causing the difference that is what I need to know.

Thank you.

Bob.

If I understand what you are saying then you need it switched on not off.
Modify each offending profile and select "Compare Options" then tick "Do not show the Differences screen if it is empty (due to filter settings)".
