SyncDirs, ask for overwrite on start

Post by *wanderer »

Most of the time, in SyncDirs function, when some files are selected for copying, i personally will overwrite them. It would be nice if when the process is started to immediately ask what to do with existing files (display the already existing "file exists" dialog). This could perhaps be achieved by starting the copy process from files that exist in both sides and then process the single-sided ones.

wanderer,
When you click Synchronize..., there is a "Confirm overwrites" checkbox. Does unchecking it help to achieve what you want?

Hi Hacker,

Sorry for the late reply, just saw it. Yes, it does the trick but for some reason, i thought in subsequent comparisons, TC remembered its last state. I just tried it but i guess i was wrong. So, this request should be ignored.

Thanks.
