hi ,

i have try to synchronize a local and remote dir, it works perfectly.

but i will like to perform a delete on the remote dir after this syn, so as to safe space on the remote dir. can we do it using scripting?

i try to use syndelete but it does not work, not sure if i do it correctly, please advice, thanks

So you want to download all the files from remote server and delete them afterwards?
Just use get and rm then.

What do you think? :-)
BTW, the next version will support "get /delete".
