How to synchronize folders in Catalogs

    When I use this synchronize option, capture one does not add or mention new added subfolders which includes pictures.

    Is this by design?

    Hi Twan,

    When you use the Synchronize option, only the contents of the selected folder and known subfolders (that were imported initially) will be updated.

    If you want to import new subfolders, go to the Import dialog again, checkmark the Include Subfolders option and the Exclude Duplicated option. That way only new subfolders and new files will be imported into a Catalog.

    It does not work how it must! It's a very stupid function! My library missed files from album and when I use this function to try return them, it find files start to import them, but missed files stay in album...

    Why does the sync folder function not include variants? Variants from a session are imported, but cannot be synchronized later, e.g. if a new variant is created or a variant is deleted. Seems like a bug to me.

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for your comment.

    Please note that this function works for source images only, in case those were added to the referenced folder.

    Meanwhile, variants denote the virtual representation of images together with the settings applied in Capture One tools. It means that variants are not stored physically anywhere, so they cannot be synchronized.

    On older iterations of Capture One, folders auto-synced with the folders on my computer. Why is that no longer an option? It's really inconvenient to have to do it all manually.

    I'm not 100% clear about this feature. What does it do and how does it help? Does it allow catalog to organize all sessions?
