Files removed

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of syncing 'My Documents' from my laptop to a clean Windows 7 install, on my desktop.

During the initial sync, I noticed that the folders 'My Pictures' and 'My Music' (and all folder contents) which were within 'My Documents' on my laptop were removed.

Any idea why these folders would be trashed?

What is the best way for me to sync 'My Pictures' and 'My Music' going forward?

Thank you.

PS - I am using the latest version of BT Sync 1.0.132

Check your .SyncTrash folder, as BitTorrent Sync, by default, doesn't "delete" files, it just "removes" them to hidden .SyncTrash folders

There was a possibly related discussion on syncing "My Documents" and "My Video" folders, that may be of some interest

Thank you for pointing out that the files were not deleted (nice safeguard) and where to find them.

I read the thread you linked above regarding the My Videos folder.

Sounds like there may be a bug related to syncing of WIndows My Pictures, My Photos, My Videos folders. Perhaps someone could test this and revert back with their findings.

I'd also like to know how to sync My Pictures / My Music folders.

Thanks.

I'm syncing the My Pictures folder without any problems.

If you select a folder in the file explorer it'll resolve to the real path.

PS: This is Win8, they may have fixed a "few" things.

Try to set it to C:\Users\blah\Pictures.
