    • SPSync 0.9.9 doesn't sync from remote to local hard disk.

      I am able to sync files from local to remote but not vice versa. I tried using the directional setting "Both" as well as "Remote to Local" and neither would sync to my local folder

        • SPSync says sync is complete but a lot of files are missing

          SPSync states that the sync is complete, however a lot of files and folders are missing compared to the online version.
          When forcing a new sync, nothing changes.

          • Sync empty folders

            If a SharePoint site has empty folders, it seems spsync does not sync them locally. It would be useful so users can start adding files to those folders offline and then have them synced back - but it requires that the folder exist offline

              • User used to access SharePoint

                In configuration it is needed to add credentials for the user to access the SharePoint site. Especially for onpremise solutions the "CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials" is useful, because if user is logged into Windows as the user to access SharePoint, the step to specify the user is really not needed. It should be possible to leave empty (or have check box with "Use default") and spsync should use default credentials.

                • Provide a way to see unsynced folders (different icon) that exist in the SharePoint library

                  SPSync works great for syncing folders. One challenge with the entire Onedrive for Business setup is that everything has to be synced for a user to perceive it to work like traditional mapped drives. It would be nice to be able to "see" unsynced folders so that files could be opened/saved to those locations if the user is online. A different icon could be used to identify synced and unsynced folders so that the user would have a visual queue on the status.

                  I'd be interested in the cost of adding such a feature and contributing to offset the cost.

                  • Duplicate notification area icons

                    Every time you click the desktop shortcut for spsync, a new icon is created in the notification area. Could this be avoided?

                    Maybe have an animated icon for spsync while it is syncing so that there is no confusion about whether it is working or not.

                    • Predefined and memory of default values in new site configuration

                      The advanced configuration is a bit complex to average Joe. It would be nice if the last configuration was remembered to give a better starting point in a new configuration. The initial value could be default values from app.config, which would make it possible to help users with default values (that might never be differen) across the organisation.

                      • Datasource for predefined sites to sync

                        It will help users to specify site to connect to if there was an option to have a predefined list of sites "available". It also makes it possible to limit the sites that can be synced.
                        The datasource for the list of sites could range from simple to advanced datasources, e.g. flat (centrally stored) csv file, appSettings or SharePoint list of items with reference to site urls. The last bit is interessting as you can use sharepoint permissions to scope different sites to different users.
                        The definition of datasource should go into appSettings.

                        • Files Deleted in Sharepoint

                          Hi,

                          I don't know why this exactly happened, but your tool deleted all files in some sub folders on my share point today. Fortunately i have been able to restore those, but quite a shock.

                          What i have done, maybe it helps:
                          1. Synced only sub folders, i.e. not all folders available on share point.
                          2. That worked well for some days.
                          3. Extended folder that i want to sync. At that time, the tool suddenly deleted all files in some sub folders, especially in those that were new.

                          Theory:
                          1. Related to some files where file name is too…

                              Hi Marco,
                              we are using an old colligo contributor application on our sharepoint 2.0 (SBS2003 - yeah, I know ;-) to synchronise the projects library of our consulting firm (+15000 files, ± 12Gb data), this all worked years and years fine. Because we're growing from 4 to 10 people we first switched to sbs2011 (where we didn't use the sharepoint component because of the limited storage), now we switched to off 365 so all our collaborators could directly access the sharepoint data without having to hassle with vpn's, dropbox copies, ets. Colligo switched markets and is not supporting this kind…

                                    In the sync properties for each folder have the ability to add tags on a folder by folder basis. And those tags to be added to any file that is synced in that folder. And one step further would be to sync to a flat structured Library (no folders) but create a folder structure on your PC from a specific Tag.

                                    So you have a Column in you library called Folder and it uses that to create a folder on your PC from that column, all files with that Tag are synced into a folder with that tag name, and…
