Synchronization Checklist

You will be presented with the synchronization checklist if you have enabled option Preview changes on Synchronize dialog. In the checklist you can select those synchronization actions you want to actually apply.

Information Displayed

In the checklist, there is one row per each synchronization action. For each action, you can see the action type, visualized by icon.


  • Green arrows indicate a new file that does not exist in the target/destination directory and will be copied to the directory that the arrow points to1.
  • Red arrows indicate a changed file that will be copied to the directory (overwriting the file with the same name) that the arrow points to1.
  • And finally red crosses indicate a file that only exists in the target/destination directory and will be deleted1.

For each action you can see also name of the file or directory (directories end with slash and can be distinguished also by an icon), and their attributes in either local or remote directory or both (for updated files). Columns Local/Remote directory indicate location of the files/directories relative to root directory of synchronization.

Selecting Actions

To select actions to be applied, use checkbox at the very beginning of each row. To check more actions at a time, select them and use buttons (Un)Check or context menu. Note that you can select all actions or certain type (like local file updates) by clicking on respective section of status bar (at the bottom of the window). To add the actions to the existing selection, hold down Ctrl key, while clicking.

Note that initially only those actions that you have requested by your synchronization options will be checked. I.e. if you have not enabled option Delete files, the deletion actions will be unchecked.

Reversing Action

You can reverse an action using Reverse button. Actions are reversed as follows:

  • File update transfer ⇒ Reverse direction
  • New file transfer ⇒ Delete file
  • Delete file ⇒ New file transfer

Custom Commands

Use Commands button to execute custom command over pair of files (local and remote). Selection of custom commands is limited to those executed both with local and remote files (“diff” commands). You have to select update action (blue arrow), i.e. where both local and remote file exists, to execute the custom command.
