SyncBackPro (commercial) • Re: Can I receive a warning message when syncback copy Zero Files?
Could you please clarify what you mean by
Can I receive a warning message when syncback copy Zero Files?
Do you want to receive a warning message when ‘no’ files are copied to the Destination (e.g. when Source and Destination are identical, when all the files within the scope are ignored due to your profile configuration etc.,) (OR) when ‘zero size’ files are copied to the Destination?
If possible, please explain your requirement with examples so that we can suggest further on your problem.

SyncBackFree (freeware) • Re: How to best backup chrome bookmarks. Just the file, not all those profile folders
To copy only the 'Bookmarks' file from Source to Destination
1. You can add an inclusion filter:
to 'File/Folders to copy list' on the left side of the Modify > Simple > 'Change Filter' settings page. Then click on OK button to close the settings page and confirm any questions you may be asked about excluding any matching files.
Note that when you click on OK button you may receive a Warning message from SyncBack saying “Warning! It looks like your filters are just for files…...”
- you can ignore this warning, as you want to copy only a single file from the Source root folder but not from sub-folders of the root.
As filters and file/folder de/selections are inter-wired, and if a conflict exists, de/selections override filters. A conflict can be deliberate (in which case you can think of it as an 'override'). Do note that if you add, remove or change any Filters, when you close the Filter dialog, the program will re-scan the file/folder de/selections against all current filters (inclusion and exclusion). Bear in mind that you will be asked again once it's re-scanned whether to include/exclude files/folders that are currently in scope which matches your inclusion filters (which should now be included, or vice versa for exclusion filters). You should generally agree to this, as selections override filters, so if you do not, they will remain un-selected and thus will still not be copied (or vice versa).
2. Alternatively, you can simply deselect unwanted files/folders from:
Modify > Simple > “Choose sub-directories and files” settings page
and select only the Bookmarks file that you want to copy to the Destination.

SyncBackFree (freeware) • How to best backup chrome bookmarks. Just the file, not all those profile folders
I use syncback to backup my chrome bookmarks. But noticed it is 1 gb big. Turns out the backup also contains the chrome profile, as I can not select a specific file to be backedup, just a folder. I know there is suppose to be a way to not backup folders. But maybe there is an easyer way then me typing in the names of a whole list of folders?

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Failed to copy from Source : Cannot copy file (1392)
With latest SBPro am getting this error
Failed to copy from Source : Cannot copy file (1392): The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable
The log html file only shows the directory, how do I find the actual file please?
I was able to copy everything over using Win 10 pro Explorer, but keep getting this error in SB.

I am evaluating current SyncBackPro, as well as Amazon Drive
I am trying to upload 2TB directory
The speed I see is 36 Kbit/sec..
My link has 3500 KBit/sec
Where is the issue?
Is there an alternative to Amazon for more or less same pricing?

SyncBack Touch • Re: Setting up SyncBack Touch problem
As you said, most likely the source path pointing to your SyncBack Touch device is the issue. Edit your profile, test your connectivity with SyncBack Touch, then at the SyncBack Touch source path remove any existing text and enter the backslash character (\), then press the folder selection button to select the source path on your device from which you want to copy files. Most likely your source folders will be under \sdcard
Keep in mind that you will only be able to backup user data files (e.g. photos/music/videos/documents). SyncBack Touch doesn't do an actual (full) device backup and it doen't copy system files and/or its applications.

SyncBack Touch • Setting up SyncBack Touch problem
After years of using SyncBack Pro v6 I have decided to upgrade to v7 with SyncBack Touch.
While attempting to connect SyncBack Pro v7 to my Smartphone HTC One M8 with Touch I have encountered the following problem:
Installed Touch on HTC M8 - Setup all OK
Created profile as per install instruction with "SyncBack Touch" as source and "E:\HTC-M8" as destination and saved. So far, so good.
Opened option SyncBack Touch and setup device - Tested OK.
Attemped to run profile and got this error - "Cannot connect to source : The network path was not found"
Win OS - Win10 64bit
HTC OS - Android 6.0 Marshmallow
SyncBack Pro v18.104.22.168 - Touch tested and device found
Touch v1.3.8 - Shows connected to Wifi and last connection at Date & Time
I suspect that my source definition is wrong - please help!
My goal is to backup the HTC M8 smartphone data to PC external drive E:\HTC-M8
