Karen's replicator problem

I am having trouble with this program, that I have been using successfully on another pc for years, since I put it on my laptop. I set it up the same, but it will not delete folders that I have deleted. I have the replicate file and folder deletion box checked.

Any ideas please.

thanks

As you have had it 'For years', I assume it was used on XP, is your new system window 7?, as that could be the cause.

yes your right, it was on xp, now it's on a windows 7 laptop

Karenware apps are great, but a bit long in the tooth sometimes and I'm not sure they are being updated.

See here for some alternatives. Many recommend AllwaySync.

Also SyncToy (no scheduler though)

Or a full backup program such as Easus Todo (v3 now) may be useful.

Would also recommend AllwaySync.

That's because she died earlier this year :0(

That's sad. Thanks for posting.

I too was taking Karens newsletters but they became less and less frequent, and after her death I deleted my subscription as programs weren't being updated although there seems to be a lot of people carrying on.

I forgot to mention that I find that Acronis True Image does everything including continuous backup, I buy very few programs, relying on free ones mostly but that is the one worth paying for especially as it's now more creature friendly than before.
