Features
  • Synchronization
    • Powerful synchronization algorithm.
    • Bi-directional (Two way) and mono-directional (One way) synchronization mode.
    • Predefined synchronzation modes for mostly used synchronizations
      • Mirror A -> B (incremental): Mirrors new and modified files from A to B.
      • Mirror B -> A (incremental): Mirrors new and modified files from B to A.
      • Synchronize A <-> B (incremental): Mirrors new and modified files in directories A and B to each other.
      • Synchronize A <-> B (custom): Custom mode to mirror directory A and B to each other with all advanced options.
      • Backup A -> B (full): Makes a full copy of directory A into directory B.
      • Restore B -> A (full): Makes a full copy of directory B into directory A.
      • Contribute A -> B (incremental): Mirrors only new files from directory A into directory B.
      • Contribute B -> A (incremental): Mirrors only the new files from directory B into directory A.
      • Synchronize A -> B (custom): Custom mode to synchronize directory A into directory B with all advanced options.
      • Synchronize B -> A (custom): Custom mode to synchronize directory B into directory A with all advanced options.
    • Highly customizable custom synchronization modes.
    • Compare files based on their modification dates, changes in their meta data (DOS attributes, POSIX group/ownerships/permissions) or file contents (deep content scan).
    • Option for various behavior of conflict resolution for Bidirectional Synchronization.
    • Synchronizes unlimited number of files and folders.
    • Large number of options to change the synchronization behavior.
    • Option to synchonise subdirectories recursively.
    • Synchronizes files/folders any file system (FAT, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, WinFS, UDF, Ext2, Ext3, ...).
    • Synchronizes files from/to network drives
    • Synchronizes files from/to any mounted devices (Harddisks, USB-Sticks, Memory cards, External drives, CD/DVD's, ...).
    • Synchronization could be used for making incremental backups.
    • Option to create up to 50 backups from the modified/changed files before synchronization.
    • Option to define a backup folder where DirSync Pro keeps tracks of files which are being overwritten.
    • Option for handling symbolic links.
    • Advanced options for handling time-stamps.
    • Option to define timestamp granularity.
    • Option to handle 'daylight saving' related timestamp granularity (useful when syncing with FAT file systems).
    • Option to preserve file meta data (DOS attributes, POSIX group/ownerships/permissions)
    • Option for real-time synchronization, to watch automatically a directory and start synchronization as soon as something is changed.
  • Schedule Engine
    • DirSync Pro has a powerful Schedule Engine with lots of features to run automated scheduled synchronzation tasks.
      • Once: Run sync tasks at a certain time in the future.
      • Minutely: Run sync tasks recurrently every X minutes.
      • Hourly: Run sync tasks recurrently every X hours.
      • Daily: Run sync tasks recurrently on a certain time daily.
      • Weekly: Run sync tasks recurrently on a certain time and in specific months every X weeks.
      • Monthly: Run sync tasks recurrently every month on day number X, on a certain time and in specific months.
  • Filters
    • DirSync Pro has comprehensive filters to include or exclude files and directories. The user can set up a combination of unlimited number of filters of the following types:
      • Filter based on string patterns in file/directory names, with wild cards and regular expression support.
      • Filter based on file sizes. (smaller than, equal, larger than).
      • Filter based on modification dates, both compared to a specific time (earlier than, on a date, later than), and based on some time unit compared to 'now' (like: files older than 3 months ago).
      • Filter based on an absoulte path.
      • Filter based on DOS attibutes (DOS/MS Windows only).
      • Filter based on file ownerships (user and group, POSIX only).
      • Filter based on file permissions (POSIX systems only).
