Rufus the Dog had trouble on 17 Jun 2012
I have a NAS that I use to backup a handful or PCs and my MacBook. On the PCs I use a program called SecondCopy, and have done for years, so I decided to find a suitable equivalent for the MacBook. Hence buying Get Backup Pro which I use in Sync mode with the direction arrow always towards the NAS. That all works well for three separate projects, namely Download, Documents and 'Nikon' folders .

Now my problem..

I have another sync projects set to do the same back up of the Nikon Image directory but to a 32gig SanDisk USB stick. Regardless of how many I times I run the sync it will always spend time transferring some, but not all, files that are already on the USB stick (and not always the same files either). Running the Analysis prior to performing the sync shows a mix of both green and blue arrows. I should mention that I have not added a single image to this directory while performing these syncs.

Oh and lastly I also get the 'Never Done' comment for both this sync project AND the Download to NAS project which does work ok.


er... help please

You know what it is like. You ask a question then go and try and answer it yourself. Well... no success but I thought I would post further information in case it helps :-




I unticked all but one subfolder that analysis insisted two files need to be transferred. Running sync 3 times gets the same results

BUT both files ARE on the USB Stick?


Is it anything to do with the USB stick coming formatted as FAT32?
