DirSync Directory Synchronizer Features Include:
- Policy based Synchronization
User can select a sync mode in policy page to determine whether to add, update
or delete files/folders etc. Only the different files will be copied between the source
and target folders.
- Run as Service
DirSync Server can be configured to run as service or not. In service mode the jobs
can be scheduled to run even when user do not logon.
- Easy Job Management
Every job is stored in a single *.dsj file and all managed jobs are stored in a job folder
or its sub folder. User can group several similar or related jobs in one sub folder
to simplify the job management.
The jobs panel of main window supports multiple selection. Therefore multiple jobs/folders
can be selected to perform an action, such as: copy, cut, paste, delete, enable, disable,
postpone, bring forward, run, pause, stop and simulate etc.
- Remote Administration
User can connect to the "DirSync Server" running on remote machines to manage the
remote jobs easily and/or change some server options.
Simulate the execution of the job to see what files will be copied or deleted,
and what folders will be created or removed. The job can be configured to run in
simulation mode only. Also user can use menu "Run/Simulate" to simulate any job.
The job can be scheduled to run one day, daily, weekly or monthly and to repeat
in hours or minutes. It's easy to enable, disable, postpone and bring forward
the schedule by using the commands of menu "Schedule".
Wake computer: Restore a system in suspended power conservation mode to run the scheduled jobs.

and "File Attributes". Each filter can be "Include" or "Exclude". The file/folder name
filters can support "Wildcards, Relative and Absolute path". The date, size and
attributes filters can be applied to source, target or both sides of the folder pair.
Each filter can be enabled/disabled independently.

During the execution, the following info will be shown in the "Statistics Panel":
the elapsed time, the source and target folder being synchronized, the action being taken,
the added, updated, deleted, skipped, excluded and pending count of files/folders/bytes,
the sync progress.

- Multi-Threading Technology
Each job will be executed in a standalone thread. Consequently the running job
can be paused, resumed or stopped manually. The priority of the execution thread
also can be selected.
- Bandwidth throttling
Limit the maximum transfer rate (KB/s). This feature can slow down the pulse of reads
and writes, and keep bandwidth available for other applications.
- Maximum execution time
Run job with a time limit.
- Simultaneous Limit
User can specify how many jobs can be executed concurrently. This limit can be global
or for each job, therefore some jobs can be marked to run alone. If this condition is
not met the job will enter the waiting status to wait for other jobs to finish.
- Path Variables
Path variables, such as date, time, computer name, user name or job name etc,
can be used in any folder or file settings: source/target folders, log file,
file filters, folder filters, deletion folder and pre/post-sync process command etc.

that still use FAT/FAT32 file system.

Support "Ignore different modification time by the same file size".
Validate file after copying (using CRC32). This will be helpful to
"Backup to CD-RW/DVD+RW/DVD-RW".
- Intermediate File
Use intermediate (temp) file while copying. Update file only after successful copying.
- Transfer Security Attributes
Folders and files security attributes can be transferred.
- Transfer Folder Creation/Modification Time
Both creation and modification time of folders can be transferred.
- Deletion Files
The deletion files can be moved to recycle bin (only for local files) or deletion folder.
This can protect files from being deleted by mistake. The files moved to deletion folder
can be purged after specified days to save the disk space.
- File Revisioning
Several versions of an overwritten file can be kept in its owner folder or deletion folder.
The max number of revision can be specified. It's useful in recovering a previously
saved version of a file.
- Pre/Post-Sync Process
Run an external application or batch command before or after the sync. e.g. map
a network drive before sync and unmap it after sync.
- Error Handling Mechanism
User can decide the behaviors the program will take when error occurs:
Whether to retry on errors? (retry times and waiting time can be specified.)
Whether to stop the job when specified count of errors is reached?
- Command Line Parameters
