SYNC /W copies back instead of propagating a delete

Apr 13, 2010
The Hague
Not a bug, of course, but perhaps an interesting feature.

The first SYNC /W from C: -> P: copies a file from P: -> C:
I manually delete the file from C:
I repeat the same SYNC, expecting the local delete to propagate to P: but it is copied back again.

The manual states "/W: Delete files in dir2 that do not exist in dir1"

I believe the problem might be related to the fact that the offending file is versioned.

Please advice.

Your own @version of course. :smile: with default separator.
Could it be that SYNC isn't seeing the target because it is looking for an unversioned file?
