help with sync

I dont know if someone can help withthis. I have been usin sync back for a long time but would like to go portable with my syncs.

At the moment using sync back say i have drive c sourec and g destination, but they are set to sync.

If i work on the g drive e.g rename a folder and then sync thefolder on c is also renamed.

But i have tried the same thing with Toucan today and what happened was thatthe older folder was still there and also the renamed folder was copied over as a new folder.

Can anyone advise how to set the settings to get the same results as Sync back please?

Toucan

currently doesn't support what you require I am afraid, it is a long term goal, but it is very difficult to achieve in a portable manner.

This seems like a simple

This seems like a simple script. You could have Toucan create a hidden file in each of the folders with the last time they were modified. Then which ever file was more recent, that folder would be used as the source in a mirror sync.

It's probably not that easy, but it seems like it would work.
