How to report Toucan bugs

Submitted by alt on November 15, 2017 - 5:04pm

Due to foum engine limitations, it's not possible to subscribe to all new topics created in the Toucan forum. And given my free time limitations, it is unfortunately rather inconvenient for me to visit forum all the time just to check if there are any updates, so I'd prefer folks to report issues on GitHub right away, their notifications system helps me be up-to-date with much less effort. And forums, on the contrary, are a good place for general questions, usage tips and so on, where my direct involvement is not that important as community can chime in.

v3.1.5 button action swapped

Submitted by autohost on October 20, 2017 - 12:02pm

On the Variabled tab:
The Disk icon and the green + icon actions are swapped.

When you click on the green + icon, the window that pops up is titled Variable Save, and asks if you want to save the current variable.
When you click on the disk icon, the window that pops up is titled New Variable, and asks you to enter the name for a new variable.

Delete folder content

Submitted by Citrus91 on September 28, 2017 - 11:32am

I want clean up after my backup. So, I want to clean (=delete) all files and subfolders of a folder. I try to realize that with "sync" and "clean". The Source is a empty folder and the destination is the folder which I want to clean up. But it does not work.

I also try to use a script command 'delete' like 'delete([[c:\myfolder]])'. It is not work, too.

Can anybody help?

Request for help in rules setup.

I'm hoping to get some help with the rules in Toucan.

I (currently) use Sync with the Mirror function to backup my files. The Source files are on a NAS so there is a large number of large files which necessitates (due to destination disk size limitations) syncing to different destinations. So I expect to end up with multiple Sync Jobs, each with a corresponding set of unique rules for the backups. And I would have a Script to run all of the jobs together.

As a company can we download, install and use "Toucan", and third party software that may be included, without any cost?

Can you give me the link where i can make the download?
