Joe triaged T23: Replicator fails to Recycle deleted files as High priority.

Leonard B just reported a test where "Move deleted Items to Recycle Bin" simply deletes the file, no error, and it's counted in the Files Recycled count.

Nope, I've misunderstood Jim's issue. Editing this task to reflect the real issue. Or is there another task? My head is spinning... I'll just copy ticket text here:

Joe closed T154: Why can you check Compare Time, but not Copy If Newer? as Wontfix.

This is because some people may want to copy if the Last Modification time is different -- it could be earlier than the copy in the Destination Folder. I don't personally have a use case for this, but some users might be using Replicator to restore previous file system states, I guess.

Joe added a comment to T179: Improve the preferred sort order function (can a field be added to the job?).

Joe triaged T174: the error "the system cannot find the path specified" on Windows Server 2012R2 as Normal priority.

Removed from the milestone for release v3.7.4 which was more of a hassle than one might think: Had to unlock it so I could edit the task (being Admin isn't enough), then I set up a custom policy so Sam could edit it again (needed custom policy because if Administrators wasn't in the policy then I couldn't save it). Also made public so people could see it. I've changed the default visibility of the Default space to be publicly visible.

[I]f there is an opportunity to implement a limit to the size of the log file Karen's Replicator creates, that would be appreciated.
Say around 500KB to 1MB. Oldest logs to be deleted. Perhaps a user's choice as to whether to limit the log file's size or not.
For those that backup many folders, the log file size mushrooms fairly quickly, especially for those that backup daily.
Large log files are a chore to read and, on older systems, may not load into the "notepad" like window due to its very large size.
I have run into some users that did not realize there was a log file to peruse! Their log file sizes were gargantuan!

Joe added a comment to T115: Unicode characters in file and folder names will not appear in output.

Contrary to what I used to believe, VB6 does store strings in full, wide character format -- so the file and folder names with special characters should be in there. The inability for the output to contain certain characters then depends on code-page dependencies? Notice here that Asian characters and Hebrew are excluded, but some special Latin-ish characters are displayed:
