#4489: Synchronize and clean-up removed files/folders

 Priority:  normal              |   Milestone:                 
Component:  core                |     Version:  3.4.2          
 Severity:  normal              |    Keywords:  synchronization
 Platform:  Mac OS X 10.6       |  
 After having read the synchronisation help, it seems that, when selecting
 "upload", all modified files are replaced, and all non-existing ones
 added. This is fine and usefull. But what would be even more usefull is a
 more smart synchronisation (consider it as an option) which would REMOVE
 the files from the remote server IF the corresponding file has been
 removed from the local machine.

 This feature would avoid that, using synchronization for backup, the
 backup takes more and more space because files remain forever when they
 were removed from local machine.

 rsync command line tool has an option for that (--delete). It would be
 great if Cyberduck could have something similar.

 Best regards.
