Positive list

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


With the two boxes, you specify groups of files or directories to be synchronized. This is useful if you only want these files / directories to be synchronized.


On the left, you may enter files. Simply enter a description of the file, like *.backup. You may enter one description per line.


On the right, you can enter directory names. The directories themselves and the files and directories in and below will be synchronized. You may enter one description per line.


Note: If you enter directories, the synchronization of all other directories is deactivated. If you want to synchronize a directory in a directory, you must enter both names separately. Furthermore, if you enter a directory name this does not mean that all files in the directory are synchronized. It just means that they are not immediately excluded.


Important: You may include files / directories in two ways. On the one hand, you can simply enter the name into a line, e.g., Backup. All directories with this name (no matter where they are) will be synchronized (if their parent directories are on the positive list, too). On the other hand, you can also enter directory names relative to the task directory. For example, if you want to synchronize the directories c:\data\ and \\Server\sub\data and you want the directory c:\data\test\backup to be synchronized, you must enter the line \test\backup. It is important that you start with a backslash (\) and then continue with the directory below the task directories.


Example: Youre synchronizing the directories c:\data\ and x:\data\. And you only want to synchronize the directory c:\data\sub\files. You could enter the path \sub\files into the positive list. However, this alone would not work. So far you havent allowed Easy2Sync to synchronize the directory \sub. Therefore, the subdirectory \sub\files cannot be synchronized. Thus you must also enter the directory \sub into the positive list. (As an alternative you could also enter sub and files into the positive list. Nevertheless, this might also cause Easy2Sync to synchronize other directories, too.)
