I am using Toucan to sync from my Vista Ultimate Laptop to my Western Digital Passport book drive. I use Toucan to sync all my media onto the book drive as a backup. I have all my media in a single folder and then in many sub folders. The total of it all is 110GB (23,000 files).
For starters when I tell Toucan to preview the folder it shows everything as Red, which is wrong. It should only be updating around 50 files. No where near all of them.
Secondly when I right click and say "exclude" nothing changes. I mean how do I know that it is now excluding that file/folder? And how long does this last for? Is it only this job, or what?
The main problem I am having is that it runs incredibly slow! I only have a 5400RPM hard drive on my laptop. I'm not sure of the speed of my book drive, but it is probably the same. But still, I would of expected it to go faster. It has been 30 minutes and it hasn't even gotten through 1/6 of my files. And I don't have anything else significant running in the background. I have Firefox and Microsoft word open.
Another thing is that when I tell it to cancel, it doesn't. Even if I click the button a hundred times (literally) it doesn't respond. Normally if I want to cancel it I have to end it through the task manager. But for some reason my task manager and perfmon won't open right now. Is that related? They were working yesterday, and nothing has changed except a restart.
I like the new interface and features with 2.0, but Toucan seemed to work much better back in the 1.* days. Or is it just me?
