[SOLVED!] Update 16tb 12/26/17 (will review and confirm upon user posting what it's trying to delete)

Post by XrobotronX on Tue Dec 26, 2017 6:01 pm

Hey guys! I just updated my 16tb root and system roms successfully. I was gonna update the 8tb+. Syncovery wants to move 1 and delete 187 (268.9gb).

Is this correct? Should I go with it? I will wait before I do anything...

Thank You

Please post a screen shot of what it's trying to delete.

It should show a results page like this image, click the plus arrow so we can see the filenames it's trying to change like i did here. Hit ALT+PRINTSCREEN to screen capture it and then paste it to imgur and post link here.

Example:

Post that, don't delete that many files, not sure what it's doing yet.

Also, right now only beta testers that know what they are doing should be updating... you should wait or else you can update drive and it'll stop working on some or all of it until the beta testers find issues and we can fix.

I volunteered to be a tester. Also, I don't think I should continue with syncing the 8tb+. I have 197gb free on the drive now. I also was wondering why the files are being deleted. Do they not run or something? Thank You

Oh okay great, I just wanted to make sure you're a beta tester.

The otaku ones are no longer supported, they werent games they were magazines that are no longer on the drive. The sonic one is on the drive but there was a duplicate.

That leaves Wii, WiiU, and GOG Games... I'm not sure why deleting those. I can't see everything in that image. Don't delete it for now.

Please msg me on facebook and mention this post and that you're a tester. I'll try and teamviewer and see what's going on. I'll be online for an hour.

Chris said this IS correct. He said it appears you hadn't updated in a LONG time and that's why it's deleting stuff. GOG games had tons of duplicates in that 1500 list of titles, and the Wii stuff is already on the FIRST drive so you have two copies of it, that's why removed from 2nd drive.

You are fine to update. Here's a link to what Chris said:

Yes GoG I think deletes down to around 1100+ games instead of 1500, that was an update a while ago so I agree it must have been a bit of time since you updated. It is good to question large deletes before proceeding with them.
