Yes, I see it now, but only after I realised I had to press F8 to set sync mode to One Way.

Now when I press Esc, it keeps going for a while before giving me the option to cancel. After I press Y, it continues on for a couple of seconds doing something.

I don't know where in the process it does the deletions. If it's after you press Esc, maybe it should prompt before doing them, or maybe just not do them.

I can see where this could cause a lot of damage if you're mirroring to the wrong place. It might delete everything that was there. Sometimes we don't want programs to do what we tell them to do.
