Does Quest NDS Migrator support file and folder synchronize deletes?
Yes, but the initial data migration must be performed with Quest NDS Migrator 4.2.
If a data migration has been performed prior to upgrading to version 4.2, the file and folder synchronize deletes may not occur. This is due to Quest NDS Migrator 4.2 capturing all of the file/folder paths that it has moved. Versions prior to Quest NDS Migrator 4.2 do no capture file and folder path information that it has moved.
This path (file/folder) capture is used as a comparison to determine if a removed file/folder on the source NDS volume has been moved by Quest NDS Migrator. If it has, then Quest NDS Migrator will (if the option to 'Migrate and synchronize' is chosen) delete the corresponding file/folder on the target. If Quest NDS Migrator determines that it did not create the file (or folder) on the target and the source is removed, Quest NDS Migrator will *NOT* remove the file (or folder) on the target.
NOTE: Quest NDS Migrator will only synchronize delete files and folders on the target volume. It does not delete the source data.
