CrushSync Publisher's description
from Ben Spink
CrushSync is a powerful synchronization application.
CrushSync is software that lets you backup files to a remote location, or locally on your existing network or hard drives. It does this intelligently by synchronizing files based on when they were last modified. You can setup automatic schedules so it will run unattended and take care of keeping your files up to date. CrushSync supports two way synchronizations allowing you make changes in either location and it will synchronize the files back and forth. It can handle synchronizations to local files and folders as well as items on FTP servers, WebDAV servers, or SFTP servers!
Supports Multiple Protocols: Easily backup / synchronize files on local hard drives, or to a remote server.
Cross platform :Runs on OS X, Windows, Linux, Solaris, etc.
Scheduled Synchronizations : Setup times when you want synchronizations to run automatically.
Easy to Use : Takes only a few minutes to be up and running with your first synchronization complete.
Many More Features : See the features page for a full list of what CrushSync can do.
CrushSync is a powerful synchronization application. It allows you to keep folders backed up on a remote server doing one way synchronization, or with complex two way synchronization in both directions.
Local or Remote
CrushSync doesn't care if a target source location, or destination location is a local folder on your hard drive, or a remote folder on a FTP or WebDAV server. It treats them all the same and it just works!
You can multi thread your synchronizations so that while one big file is slowly transferring, it can still keep working doing all the other small files. The multi threading can result in significant performance increases over other synching software.
CrushSync is fully supported with CrushFTP and can provide optimizations for faster synchronizations other servers may not be able to handle. CrushSync is backwards compatible with other FTP and WebDAV servers as well still though.
You can create synchronization groups that will run a set of synchronizations at a scheduled time. This allows you to have fine grained control over how you synchronize items.
You can enable compression, and where possible, the synchronizations will be uploaded compressed. Using CrushFTP as the server allows for an automatic decompression as well for a faster overall sychronization on a slower network connection.
CrushSync uses multiple threads to perform synchronizations. This provides great benefits in speed especially when working over a slow network connection.
Merged, Two Way, or Copy
Different types of synchronizations for different tasks. Sometimes you may want to just copy the files, sometimes you may want the Two Way automatic synchronization. The Two Way method handles local or remote file / folder deletions. Copy synchronizations is a "replace" synchronization. Everything on the destination will be replaced with the source files. Anything on the destinations that is not on the source, will be deleted.
Not sure what might have changed? The preview options shows you the actions CrushSync will take when the synchronization is run. It will show you the files and folders that changed along with the action its going to take on those items. It helps give you more control over the process.
Configure multiple schedules to automatically run your synchronization when you want to. You can run it by the minute, hour, day, week, or month with specific controls on each.
Not sure what schedules you have configured and when they will be running next? The schedule summary lists all of your upcoming synchronizations.
Remote Folder Browser
No need to guess the path on a remote server! Easily browse the folders, and know for sure CrushSync understands the folder you want.
Watch the sync progress, see exactly what file it's working on, and how long until it's done.
Logging keeps track of what schedules ran, changes made to the synchornizations, what files were copied, deleted, etc along with any errors that might have been reported.
What's New in This Release:***added default prefs and log rolling
***added ability to right click to copy and paste between source to destination
***group syncs now bundle all results into a single email
***double clicking the header of the source/destination panel will swap them back and forth
***scheduled syncs can now be set to play catchup or not if the sync was missed while the machine was off
***added more control over the logging detail
***more robust retry capabilities to ensure a sync does complete
***no longer sends an email if nothing was actually synched
***ignores date differences if its the hours only that is different and not the minute or seconds
***handles a zipped file listing from CrushFTP for faster file listing transfers
***added size to the preview list to help on deciding if things are correct
***numerous bug fixes related to UTF8 character encodings over various protocols making syncs fail
***fixes on filter algorithm
