Report Only

I can't tell if this is possible, but I'd like to script an HTML report to be generated each day comparing two directories. I don't want Synchronize It! to actually do anything other than report, as I'm using DFS shares to copy the files over, and just want to be informed of any files that failed to copy.

Is it possible to do this with the current version of Synchronize It?

Yes, check /report option here

Thanks for the quick response Grigsoft,

I'm running the following command:
wndsync.exe C:\CompTest\1 C:\CompTest\2 /auto /scan /R /X"~* *.bak *.tmp" /XD"DfsrPrivate" /date /report C:\DfsReport.html

However this leaves the Synchronize It! window open, looking at the options I can't see a way to close it once the report has been generated, the detail under /show- seems to imply that the application won't open unless there is an error, but it appears.

This effectively creates the report I need, but if I'm automatically running 7 or 8 reports a day, I don't want to log in after a week to find I've got 40+ Synchronize It! windows open :o

/report option is self-serviced. You can remove /auto and /scan, it should work.
