Export to an existing folder
One of the most obvious uses of the export scripts feature is for use with source control. However, SQL Compare requires that the folder being exported to must be empty. This means that rather than simply exporting over the existing files and then checking in the changes, I have to create a new empty folder to export to, copy the result back over my working copy, and then delete the temporary export folder. It seems to me that this restriction is completely arbitrary. Why not allow exporting to an existing folder and overwrite any existing files? This would make the process of using SQL Compare with source control much simpler.
