Errorlevel is set to 1 when there is nothing to synchronize

I'm using a script to synchronize a remote dir with a local one
After executing the script I examine the errorlevel var to see if everything is alright and noticed that errorlevel is set to 1 (or higher) when synchronize says "nothing to syncrhonize"

I think this is not correct, as the execution is done correctly, no errors occured. So errorlevel should be 0 in this situation.


Dos commandfile:
winscp /console /script=WinScpPublishAM.txt /log="ftp%0.log" /parameter "%1"  >> "%LogFile%"
if errorlevel 1 set Errorsoccured=1

Winscp script: (Id info obscured)
option batch on
option confirm off
option transfer bin

option exclude */

open -timeout=120 ftp://yyyyyyy:xxxxxxxx@www.sg-partners.nl
cd htdocs/lccam
cd "%1%"
synchronize remote \\sngserver02\SNGProducts\LCCAMQM31\INTL -criteria=both
close
exit

Logging: (some info obscured)
batch           on        
confirm         off       
transfer        binary    
exclude         */

I do not think this is true. Are you sure that the errorlevel is 0 when there is anything to synchronize?

Mmm, just tested it with a bare script ... and i have to agree with you
The errorlevel is not set to 1 on a "nothing to synchronize"

Guess my problem is caused by something else

So what is the difference between the two scripts?
