  • Snapshot compare should allow changing snapshot

    Hi Scooter Team,

    why doesn't snapshot compare allow to do all possible actions, e.g. "copy to the snapshot side" (update CRC and metadata).

    BTW: The context menu offers "copy from snapshot side to file side" which is nonsense, of course.

    Snapshots are read-only representations of a moment in time, and do not support updating their information. It's on our wishlist to enhance snapshots and allow different types of incremental updates, but isn't supported by the current spec. They are currently treated similarly as read-only archives by the Folder Compare, which is why the Copy command is present but throws an error if it is attempted.

      incrementally checking and acknowledging changes would be simpler if we could change the snapshot.

        Agreed, it's just not something our Snapshot architecture supports at this time. For the current use case, after the differences have been reviewed, you would need to re-generate a new snapshot.
