Yes, BestSyns IS the best FTP sync tool there is. And I researched MANY.
Except for one little problem.
I have an archive of around 5TB on an FTP server, which is basically a mirror of several PCs and Laptops I own or manage.
I now have BestSyns one of them and would like to roll it out to all. But, whenever it syncs ONE file in a destination directory, it does a FULL sync of that directory instead. Which means that my entire 5TB is going to be pumped over the line again which is unworkable
The Task I gave configured as follows:
- runs as a service
- real-time sync
- uses intermediate file during copy
- NO "Do full synchronization at the beginning of the task" or periodically, or if no change notification after a period of time.
- Ignore files that are changed in less than this specific seconds: 300
So, ALL my files that originally existing in the target are renamed: original1.XXXXX
and an (unnecessary) upload takes place again.
