#4489 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Synchronize and clean-up removed files/folders

Severity: normal Keywords: synchronization

Platform: Mac OS X 10.6


After having read the synchronisation help, it seems that, when selecting "upload", all modified files are replaced, and all non-existing ones added. This is fine and usefull. But what would be even more usefull is a more smart synchronisation (consider it as an option) which would REMOVE the files from the remote server IF the corresponding file has been removed from the local machine.

This feature would avoid that, using synchronization for backup, the backup takes more and more space because files remain forever when they were removed from local machine.

rsync command line tool has an option for that (--delete). It would be great if Cyberduck could have something similar.

Best regards.
