Let me first say thank you, Steve, for dedicating your time to the benefit of others. Many props!
Right now I use Allway Sync 'n' Go, and it works very well, but I am considering the choice to pay for the professional license or use an open-source solution like yours. I've been trying to figure out how to do 2-way syncing in Toucan with deletion propogation, but have some concerns about safety and my sanity if I screw up:
1. I work on files such as PCB layouts and reports at work all day.
2. At the end of the day at work, I run all my bidirectional sync jobs with "Propagate Deletions" and "Propagate Modifications" enabled.
3. I go home, run all the same sync jobs as soon as I sit at my computer, and often do some more work at home later.
4. The next morning I run the same sync jobs again with the same settings before leaving for work.
5. When I get to work I pop my USB stick into my computer and sync up again, then start my work day as in step 1.
It seems like I could perform an equivalent routine by setting up 2 separate scripts:
For step 2: Sync job [WorkPC > USB] with Update mode selected, then again with Clean mode selected.
For step 3: Sync job [USB > HomePC] with Update mode selected, then again with Clean mode selected.
For step 4: Sync job [HomePC > USB] with Update mode selected, then again with Clean mode selected.
For step 5: Sunc job [USB > WorkPC] with Update mode selected, then again with Clean mode selected.
As you can see, the type of syncing is not really changing, but the sources and destinations are. What really worries me is messing up, running the wrong script and "Cleaning" all the new files off my thumb drive. It wouldn't be a catastrophic failure, because you can be damn sure I would do a manual sync job when I got back to home/work to get that file back on my thumb drive. Unfortunately, I would be unable to recover my work until going back to home/work and it might cause further sync (or rather, out-of-sync) problems.
Is there any plan to enable a tracker of the files in a sync job so that deletions can be correctly propogated? In my case, privacy would not be an issue for me as far as the program keeping track of folders' contents.
Or is there some magical script that I'm missing?
Thanks for your time, and thanks again for your hard work!
