    LIMITATIONS

    UPDATE OPTIONS

    All options can be enabled or disabled individually.

    Option: Copy Subdirectories
    Is equivalent to the /S option with XCOPY: The source directory and all subdirectories will be copied.

    Option: Create Directories on Target
    If you do not want to create any new directories on the target, but just handle the ones that exist already, select this option.

    Option: Bidirectional Update
    Used to synchronize two directories. First, all files are copied from A to B, then in the other direction from B to A. All other options apply, as well, but NetWare information (Trustees, IRF, Space limits) are only copied from A to B.

    Option: Confirm Overwrites
    Is equivalent to the /Y option with XCOPY: If this option is enabled you will be asked to confirm each file overwrite.

    Option: Move Files
    After successful copying the file it is deleted on the source. Use this option to move or merge directory trees.

    Option: Overwrite older files
    If this option is enabled UPDATE will overwrite files on the target directory if they are older that the one on the source dir.

    Option: Overwrite Always
    If this option is enabled UPDATE will overwrite files on the target directory even regardles if they are older, newer, or have the same date as the source file.

    Option: Delete Read-only Files if Needed
    If this option is enabled UPDATE will ignore the protection by the Read-Only file attribute.

    Option: NetWare: Copy Directory Trustees
    If this option is enabled UPDATE will try to establish the same NetWare trustee rights for the copied directories as on the source directory (even if no files had to be copied). Even if 'Bidirectional Update' is selected, this option will only be applied one-way.

    Option: NetWare: Copy File Trustees
    If this option is enabled UPDATE will try to establish the same NetWare trustee rights for the copied files as on the source directory (even if the file did not have to be copied).

    Option: NetWare: Copy Inherited Rights Filters
    If this option is enabled UPDATE will create identical Inherited Rights Filters (maximum rights, Inherited Rights Mask) as on the source (even if no files had to be copied). Even if 'Bidirectional Update' is selected, this option will only be applied one-way.

    Option: NetWare: Copy Directory Space Limitations
    If this option is enabled UPDATE will create identical directory space limitations as on the source (even if no files had to be copied). Even if 'Bidirectional Update' is selected, this option will only be applied one-way.

    Option: Only Files with Archive Attribute Set
    Is equivalent to the /A option with XCOPY: If this option is enabled UPDATE will only copy files that have their 'Archive Needed' flag set. This option does not change the flag.

    Option: Clear Archive Attribute
    Is equivalent to the /M option with XCOPY: If this option is enabled UPDATE will clear the 'Archive Needed' file attribute after copying a file.
