SYCHRONIZE ONLY SOME SELECTED FILES IN A FOLDER

Post by lmb »

Hi,
I'm using free version 3.5 of «synchronize it» and untill now it's working pretty well, making a very good job. But I need to know urgently how can I synchronize only some selected files in a folder, not the entire folder. Suppose i have a library folder with authors ranked from A to Z. Besides this folder, I have two other folders one of them with letters from A to I and another with letters from J to Z. How can I select only letters from A to I in the «mother folder» for the first synchronization and only letters from J to Z for the second synchronization?
Thank you very much for your attention and work!

I'm afraid to do this with SynchronizeIt you will need to manually enumerate this as A\*, B\* etc.. Or you can configure each folder as Session and combine them as Projects.

Maybe allowing the use of regular expressions in file selection could help with this ?

yes, probably you are right, but this is quite a rare need, as I think?

Not sure of that.

I would possibly use it if it was available.

Anyway, you already use regular expressions elsewhere, so you already have your products linked to an existing regular expressions library.
Knowing that, it shouldn't be very difficult to generalize their usage a little more. :)
