Topic "Sync syncing unchanged files"

Author Message


I've got a very simple script to sync with remote. Right now there are only 5 files in the folder i'm syncing and none of them have changed in a day or so. The first time I sync, it synced all 5 files. However, now it seems to sync two of the five files even though they haven't changed. If I run sync through the GUI it seems to work correctly, confirming that "no differences have been found". The command i'm using is:

synchronize remote K:\redikerbackups /private/adminplus

I also tried synchronize -criteria=time remote K:\redikerbackups /private/adminplus

Please read FAQ:

If that does not help, come back.


Even stranger... if I double click and run normally it syncs fine. If I run as admin, I now get nothing to synchronize.


The time on the server seems to be in sync with mine. Do i need to set the preserve timestamp option? I didn't see a command to do this, only a checkbox.
