  • 15075 Mirror fail

    Why does this mirror command fail to show deletion of left-side orphans in the preview:

    and the operation:

    ?

    This in Win 7, left side is on a mapped network drive to Win XP, and right side on local drive.

    Thanks.

    The items do not show up in the preview because they do not get deleted. We only preview the actions that are about to take place.

    To delete the items in the destination, and have Just Selection enabled, both sides will need to be selected. Use the Shift+Arrow Keys or select using the center column.

      Thanks, but this non-deletion fails to accord with Help for this command: "deletes any left-side orphans".

      What's up?

        It does not. You have enabled Just Selection which means we will only affect the selected files. You've selected only one side, so we won't delete the unselected items.

        If you select empty space in the destination side, then Sync Mirror with Just Selection, we do not attempt to copy the files aligned in the Source side because they are not selected.

        If you want to have the mirror logic apply to both sides, then both sides must be selected. Or Just Selection must be disabled.

          Sorry, but it does fail to accord. Current selection is supposed to limit the scope of the sync not of the "affected files":

          On the Actions menu, the Synchronize submenu has commands that synchronize the current selection.

          Mirror to Left
          Replaces all different items on left, deletes any left-side orphans, and copies any right-side orphans to the left.
          And note the word "any" - there is no qualification "... provided they too are selected".

          Thanks for the workaround.
