help for file tag sync

Post by Joe »

I used Goodsync for several years, but it doesn't work to sync file tag and symbolic link. Today I tried this app, I am happy that the symbolic link can be two-way sync using smarttracking, but the file tag doesn't works, I already set the compare including attributes.
I just sync files between home Mac and office Mac every day by a movable USB disk.
I don't know why, could you get me a suggestion.

Hello,
theoretically it should work if you go to Special->More and click on the button "Extended Attributes, ..." and then choose
X Compare Extended Attributes for Existing Files

But for two-way jobs, this doesn't work because file tags do not have a timestamp, so Syncovery cannot know which side has the newer tag.

It works fine for one-way jobs.

I will check if there is some way to guess which side is newer if only the tag has changed.

Thanks for your quick answer. Could you let your app to create a file to record tag, this way the app can know time.
Hope you find a way to sync tag.
