Restart a previously failed download.
dbmlsync -dc ...
This option can only be used if the -kpd dbmlsync option or the KeepPartialDownload synchronization profile option was specified on the synchronization that failed.
If dbmlsync does not receive the entire download from the server, dbmlsync does not apply any of the download data to the remote database. However, if the -kpd dbmlsync option was specified on the failed download, dbmlsync stores the part of the download it did receive in a temporary file on the remote device, so that it can be restarted later. When you specify -dc, dbmlsync restarts the download and attempts to download the part of the previous download that it did not receive. If it is able to download the remaining data, it applies the complete download to your remote database.
If there is any new data to be uploaded when you use -dc, the restartable download fails.
You can also restart a failed download using the ContinueDownload extended option or the sp_hook_dbmlsync_end hook.
