 Suggested Feature(s)

Just a quick suggestion for feature(s)/changes. Overall the application works perfectly and does exactly what it says it will. I think a nice feature might be a "dry run"; show what would happen if the sync ran.

Also, I noticed that after syncing two folders the application immediately checks (again) the sync state of the two folders. Is this intentional? As well, after the folders synced I noticed that the "Checking Folders" dialogue took a very long time to complete.

All in all, excellent work. I noticed a few translation errors which I will post in a separate post.

Sorry about the double post, not sure why it did that and I can't quite figure out how to delete the post. X_X

1) Ok, I'll implement the dry-run. Just how would you like it? I mean, a table in a new window? a file? Give me some details
2) The "re-check" is indeed intentional, so that you can verify if all the work has been done, and on my pc it's fast... Have you found it slow only with network folders or even with local ones?
3) About the translations: if the error are not in English, visit the link in the description

 Feature request

 by avlas on: Jul 10 2014

Nice application. One thing that could be improved is conflicts when using the bilateral synch. This happens when files have been changed in the two paths. Currently, KFolderSync automatically synchronizes the file with the latest modification, which may not be always the best. For instance when working on a file in two different computers, it might be that a point one forgets to synch last changes before start working on the different machine, and if so, previous changes will be lost without notification.

I typically work in this conditions and use unison, which asks what to do in such cases, whether to take the local vs remote machine, to see the diff, etc. Take a look in http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/

I think that if this works as in Unison, then a distinction between Synch and Bilateral Synch may not be necessary.

Also, it would be great to combine the previous with the backups, and that would be a clear advantage with respect to Unison. It would work the same as before, but instead of only keeping a copy of the file (the latest), it would keep all history of modifications, no matter the folder or the computer they were made.

I see a great potential with Bilateral Incremental Backups that correctly deal with conflicts. Right now I use Unison for Bilateral Synch and Kup for incremental backups (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Kup+Backup+System?content=147465)

Thanks and best!

This is a fine app, but can I suggest the following as an enhancement.

The ability to exclude (and include but this not so important) directories/files.

 Not installable on Arch Linux

The package does not follow the Arch packaging standards.


Because it wants to install to /bin we get an error:


error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
kfoldersync: /bin exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
