Since I am currently dealing with a defective hard-drive, the following idea started to worry me: Because I never know, when the drive is going to fail again, I keep writing backups to an external drive using Synchronize IT on a daily basis. Because I don't have an infinite amount of space, I don't keep a history but rather overwrite the old backups on the external drive.
But ... what happens, if the data on the source drive is corrupt? Will Synchronize It start overwriting the target files and suddenly realize, that it can't read all of the source files? In such a case, it would already be too late, because the backup files would have been partially overwritten and probably also corrupt. That would leave me with a corrupt backup and a corrupt source. Would it be possible to have Synchronize It check the integrity of the source BEFORE it starts overwriting the target?
Maybe this is already implemented. If so, could you please confirm that, so that I can calm my troubled soul?
Thank you very much and have a nice weekend!
