How do I block files from deletion?

Recommended Posts

How do I block files from deletion on 1 side of the sync?
Example:
PC1 is Production & syncs its files to PC2 which is Backup
PC1 is syncing to the backup server PC2 normally
-I want to make sure PC2 files remain even if their counterparts are deleted on PC1
-I'm aware of the Archive setting but I just want to disable it altogether to prevent accidental loss of backup.

Thanks

I don't think this is possible with Sync as it currently exists.

If PC1 and 2 are Unix-based, you could do this with `rsync` (with any 'delete' args) but that's not really what you're looking for.

How do you intend to to solve conflicts? Like, you deleted "wonderful.jpg" and just a minute later you created a new one, called "wonderful.jpg".
You also don't solve the problem of file corruption. Like, you created a "wonderful.jpg" image, and, accidentially, overwrites it with a blank image. The image is gone, no backup.

So what you want is a backup, not a sync. Or in Windows you could additionally use something like File History.

There is never a case where I create files of the same name/location. If I were doing that I'd have the files in folders by date.
