Only files that exist in both source and destination should be considered. Missing or added files should be ignored.

Reason for this: I have a "main" folder A, and a secondary folder B. B is a subset of A. Sometimes I want to update files in B, and have the file in A updated accordingly, or reciprocally. But I want to ignore all missing files in B.

Could you explain in more detail. Cause I think you can do this with existing features of Windows and ViceVersa.

A very simple example:

Source:
c:\MyFolder\
contains:
a.txt
b.txt
c.txt

Destination:
d:\MyFolder\
contains:
a.txt
b.txt
d.txt

Then only "a.txt" and "b.txt" should be checked for differences. "c.txt" and "d.txt" should be ignored all together, because not present in *both* folders. In other words, no file to add or remove by VV, just files to possibly update.

I would like such a feature also. Using a filter would be fine if there were a small number of files, but if you are dealing about large directory structures, that would be a huge pain.

Take the situation:
- You have multiple computers using a common directory structure, but the contents of the directories on each computer may not be the same. There are files that are common on all or some of the various computers. Common files may be added and removed.
- You want to sync the common files on the various computers with a common server.
- You don't want to sync the the non-common files and end up replicate them to the various computers.

Hi , there is no synchronization method for it, but you could do this manually by selecting to view (in the comparison window) only newer / older files and then using the existing synchronization method. ViceVersa synchronizes only visible files in the comparison window.
