OK, this is partly due to my own stupidity, but I have a suggestion that for either the backup or the sync, that noobish users can use checkboxes to select the folders they want instead of doing it manually through the rules.
So, heres the situation: So anyways I had a data partition on my computer which i would sync with my external for backup. I also had some stuff on my external which I didnt really need so I just left it there. Fine, right?
Well, first off, I accidentally managed to fill up the entire external by syncing stuff I didn't need. Then I figured out how to do the rules and I cleaned out the drive. But then somehow I screwed up on the rules and managed to overwrite those files that were on the external -- and they were irreplaceable. I tried recovering them for a while and then gave up when I realized that the program had erased them.
It was only AFTER this happened that I noticed the option to send files to the recycle bin.
I wish they had it selected by default or at least bolded, which is another suggestion. But then again, I'm a freaking PEBKAC so I should have seen it.
Well, thanks for listening to my stupidiy.
