Dir Sync: Selecting "Ignore date" without re-scanning

Post by *marlar » 2019-08-20, 20:05 UTC

I just compared a large local folder with its FTP companion. It took quite a while.

As often with FTP comparisons, there were some differences in time stamps for identical files. Not the usual hour, but a few seconds.

Hence I needed to re-scan with the Ignore date option which again took 20 minutes or so.

Now I think: Why the need to scan again? Since I guess that the files are stored (or at least, could be) in the list with their time stamps and other meta data, why not make the option work immediately without a new scan. That would have saved me 20 minutes.

The Asymmetric option could work the same way, BTW.
