Profiles are files that can be created by SyncWeb (extension .swp) that contain all the current settings and exclusions. Having configured your synchronisation the way you want it (including exclusions which can only be saved within profiles) click Save or Save As to save this profile (see Opening and Saving Files).
If a profile is currently open when SyncWeb is exited that same profile will automatically be opened when it is next run (unless run by double clicking a different profile). However it will not auto start. If you do not want SyncWeb to open a profile when it is next run then use the Close button to close that profile before exiting the program.
The Auto Start option only has meaning for profiles.
The Auto Start option allows fast and easy running of frequently used synchronisations. SyncWeb can be run by double clicking a profile (.swp) file, in which case it will run with that profile loaded. If the Auto Start option has been selected then SyncWeb will immediately start the synchronisation run. It could be convenient to save profiles for frequently run synchronisations in your desktop then simply double clicking the profile will run the synchronisation.
Should there be a problem with SyncWeb failing to run on double clicking the .swp file then it may be that you do not have the file association set up properly (this should have happened automatically when SyncWeb was installed). To fix this you must create a file association by going to folder options in Explorer and simply associating SyncWeb.exe with .swp.
