    Beyond Compare 4.1.5 is now available with a fix for this bug.

    Hi, I installed version 4.1.5 last week. I think the fix is working. The problem occurred this weekend and this is the log:

    2016-03-27 02:00:33 >> log verbose append:"C:\Users\***\Desktop\Mirror Log.txt"
    2016-03-27 02:00:34 >> load "Mirror"
    2016-03-27 03:26:27 Unable to load \\Q\Shared Folders\Videos: The network path was not found
    2016-03-27 03:28:14 Load comparison: \\Q\Shared Folders <-> E:\
    2016-03-27 03:28:14 >> option confirm:yes-to-all
    2016-03-27 03:28:14 >> sync mirror:left->right
    2016-03-27 03:28:56 Unable to load \\Q\Shared Folders\Videos: The network path was not found
    2016-03-27 03:32:00 Script completed in 1 hours, 31 minutes


    From this log, can you confirm the problem is fixed?

    The fix submitted helps prevent the deletes from happening if the targets fail to load. The load error "The network path was not found" is an issue with the network locations. What error are you running into now? Is it that some directories fail to load and the comparison continues after excluding them (expected), or that the Mirror is still deleting these folders in the destination (error)?

    Note: if a base folder fails to load, this is a fatal error and the entire script would exit.

    Hi. I'm sorry about my last reply. It wasn't very clear.

    As I mentioned earlier, I use Beyond Compare to synchronize a set of shared folders from a Windows Server Essentials to a remote PC thru a VPN across the Internet. The VPN is not stable. It disconnects and reconnects randomly. When that happens during the synchronization process, I get The network path was not found errors for a folder or the entire set.

    The excerpt from my log shows that on March 27th one folder was unable to load during the comparison and BC 4.1.5 excluded that folder from the synchronization process. As a result, the corresponding destination folder wasn't synchronized nor deleted on the remote PC. This is the expected behavior. The fix provided by version 4.1.5 is working well.

    Thank you very much.
