database snapshots so SI doesn't have to read anew

Here's a killer feature from superFlexible that I'd love to have: database snapshots so SI doesn't have to read anew.

What do you think?

Thank you, can you describe that in more details?

SFFS uses a database to store the files in the destination.

Later, it checks that database instead of re-reading all the files.

The most obvious use case is when you have just finished the synch profile a few minutes ago. Then you change some other file and would like to synch again. Having a cache of the destination filesystem (I mean the folder you are synching) would save the time to re-read from disk again.

If you download the 30day shareware of SFFS, you can go to Advanced settings > special > check box 'cache destination filelist'

You may be able to read the help from their website too, not sure.

Best of luck!

Yes, I do have a copy, but have not wandered about this feature. In fact I don't think it worth efforts to implement - since it will be helpful in very specific cases, but I will add it to the wish list. Thank you!
