    sync /S /F creating empty directories

    sync /S /F creating empty directories

    I'm now using the copy command rather than the sync command. I was hoping the /F wouldn't create empty directories when no files copied. It only not creates when the source directory is empty. I have solved this by deleting all empty directories afterwards. Would this be a bug or a feature...

    sync /S /F creating empty directories

    Been playing with the sync command to backup a few files with the +A attribute. Seems to keep creating many empty subdirectories in the destination folder. However I did note if the target directory is empty it won't be created. So any ideas how I sync files without creating these empty...

    TCC Install Updates Taskbar Link

    Yes I noticed this as well or the icon turns into blank one. I just then delete it and create another pin to the task bar. Done that a few times now but not every time I update. Same goes with everything,exe, sometimes have to reconfigure all my indexes and settings.
