3.0.2 sync function does not delete files that should be

Hi,

sync function does not delete files that should be :

OS is Win XP build 2600 SP3
Toucan is installed on an usb key in .Apps directory

My task is a mirror task with these parameters :

source : @docs@
target @drive@/Documents/
rule : some directories and files excluded

None of the checkboxes are checked (file size, keep date, etc.)

The preview in toucan shows that some files will be deleted.

But : files that should be are not deleted on the target drive (where toucan is installed)

I first update an existing 3.0.1 version, then tried to do a new install : it's the same thing. Note that in the windows of Toucan, v. 3.0.1 is stil mentionned...while I installed 3.0.2

Thanks for your help. And thanks for your work.

Hi,
unfortunately it seems not to work with the latest pre release too.
And it seems that files to update are not too...

sync delete files only when set in English

Sync deletes files only when set in English. I tried with Italian and French and files are not deleted.
Working on Windows XP English version, regional settings in Italian.

A lot MORE than just deletion

Changing from local (Dutch) to English resulted in a whole series of new updates of my backup. Removed files were indeed deleted at the target, but existing files were replaced.

It is, in other words, essential that users should know this (until solved) because your backups will only contain newly created files ....

Regards,

Firstly

I removed your comment in the other thread as that was an old issue that has been fixed for some time Smile Can you confirm if this is fixed or not fixed in the new pre-release?

Not removing old file

Hi
Working fine for me except for one file which is my Microsoft Money back up file it is generated each time I close the App and the last back up file is removed Example
Accounts Backup_2010-09-03_203840.mbf in preview Toucan flags the old file for removal from destination drive but it remains. It is a read only file but it makes no difference if ignore read only files is selected or not, I am using the mirror option.
Thought it may be file name length or the under scores same result 3.01 3.02 and pre release 3.03. Hope this is helpful to you. Thank you for your work.
Program set to English

Hi Steve just an update

Hi Steve just an update. It is not just your program that has a problem with the MS Money backup files I have a redundant XP system and in some spare time set to experimenting with programs from various authors all with the same outcome, they leave the deleted source file in destination. One exception a program I have not used for a while now Clone Directory that deletes the file in destination. On a note I am not a programmer I work in the access control sector and spend a lot of time in the depths of SQL which from time to time has had a good go at sending me nuts but enjoy the challenge. Again thank you for your work.
