Real-Time Sync not working

Post by callahan »

Hi,
I am trying to get the Real-Time Sync working for two tasks:
WebDAV <> UNC Network Share
Dropbox <> UNC Network Share

But for both the tasks it´s not working. Just nothing happens, when something has changed . . .

If I change to a designated schedule, it is working fine. So connection and access is ok in general.

Any ideas, what I could check to get the Real-Time Sync working? Are there some special requirements?

Thanks and regards

Real-Time sync need the OS support, it works only on the local drive.
So the following two tasks will work:
WebDAV-->LocalDrive--> UNC Network Share
But not the following'
UNC Network Share-->LocalDrive

Ah ok . . .
What would be with:

WebDAV <> Local Drive 1
Dropbox <> Local Drive 2
?

So it would be just a one-way-real-time-sync:

Local Drive 1 > WebDAV
Local Drive 2 > Dropbox

correct?

If a file system does not support real-time sync, BestSync uses the period option set in "Miscellaneous" /"Real-time Synchronization" to scan the changed files and synchronize them.
The option is "Do full synchronization if no change notification for the following period: [X] minutes".

So changes from WebDAV will be synchronized by the period.
