v9.38e for Windows/Mac/Linux (July 24th/25th, 2021):

  • Fixes downloading from Box cloud, which was broken due to a change on the Box servers.
  • Fixes a situation where interrupted SFTP uploads with TGPuttyLib caused complete re-uploading rather than resuming.

v9.38d for Linux (July 18th, 2021):

  • The Linux version will now run as a limited free edition when the trial period is up.
  • Miscellaneous improvements.

v9.38d for Windows (July 11th, 2021):

  • The Windows version no longer complains about unrecognized fields when importing a profile from a csv file from the Linux version.
  • Additional cloud listing improvements relevant only in some very specific cases.

v9.38c for all platforms (July 9th, 2021):

  • Fixes a cloud listing problem, which affected only profiles that sync against the root folder of a cloud drive, when using the changes-based listing method. Some folders and files may have appeared as bogus duplicates in the root, in addition to their actual location further down the hierarchy. The update automatically cleans these incorrect items from the cloud cache database.

v9.38b for Linux (July 8th, 2021):

  • QNAP packages are now digitally signed.
  • Includes improvements from recent Windows updates.
  • Fixes a hang in 9.38/9.38a on negative timezones.

v9.38a for Mac (July 7th, 2021):

  • Retries deletions if files are locked.
  • Includes improvements from recent Windows updates.

v9.38a for Windows (July 6th, 2021):

  • Extends the new checkmark “Upload Only – Don’t Get Updated Listing From Cloud Server (Beta)” to Sharepoint, OneDrive, and Graph.
  • When the integrated User Management is used with groups, a user will now inherit individual profile rights from groups in addition to the general permissions.

v9.38 for Windows (July 5th, 2021):

  • Adds a way to avoid lengthy “Getting History” for Google Drive for upload-only profiles. Please see the new checkmark on the Advanced tab sheet of the Internet dialog: “Upload Only – Don’t Get Updated Listing From Cloud Server (Beta)”. This checkmark requires the Changes Based Listing checkmark to be chosen also.
  • Fixes a few cases where “Remember Results” of Binary Comparison did not work.
  • Adds an option to include unscheduled jobs in the Daily Summary emails.
  • Fixes a problem where a network connection configured on the Job tab sheet was not re-tried after an intial failure, even though the job is set to re-run after a number of seconds.
  • Adds ability to replace/update Azure BLOBs which are archived.
  • Adds checkmark to rehydrate archived Azure BLOBs where necessary (i.e. before download). The profile will finish with “rehydration pending” errors and needs to be re-run again after 24 hours to actually download the rehydrated files.

v9.37b for Windows (June 29th, 2021):

  • The new feature in 9.37 enabling Syncovery to remove empty folders via Internet Protocols even if they still contained metadata files and other useless files like Thumbs.db had a bug where other (potentially useful) files could be deleted too, if Syncovery thought the folder is empty. This has been fixed and only files known to be metadata or temporary files are now deleted.
  • Now uses the Glossy theme instead of Glow by default in Dark Mode in Windows 10.

v9.37a for Windows (June 27th, 2021):

  • Prevents files uploaded to Sharepoint from having two versions and using twice the size in cloud space. Sharepoint will still create two versions, but Syncovery then deletes the older one. Uploaded files will therefore have the initial version labeled “2.0”.
  • Adds the utility functions ConnDeleteFiles and ConnDeleteFilesOlderThan to PascalScript.

v9.37 for Windows (June 23rd, 2021):

  • Should fix a problem where Ransomware protection kicked in when real-time had to copy only a few files (Too many replacements error).
  • If chosen under “Security and Shares”->”Advanced” and/or “Alternate Data Streams”, Syncovery will upload .metadata-syncovery files to Amazon S3 for folders in cases where this previously wasn’t done (because empty folders aren’t supported for S3). Using the metadata files, empty folders can now be simulated.
  • Fixes Google Drive to Google Drive copying problems with native Google Documents (an Office filename extension was added even though the document type was kept as native Google Docs). To keep native docs native, use the same Google account on both sides. That way, the copying will be done within the Google servers and the files won’t be downloaded and reuploaded.
  • The PascalScript ConcatPath functions now also resolve and clean up double dots in paths, as in C:\Tests\SubOne\..\SubTwo.

v9.37 for Linux (June 21st, 2021):

  • The SSL Configuration page now offers to choose from certificates found in the Plesk default folder /usr/local/psa/var/certificates.
  • Automatically finds replacement certificates for expired certs in Plesk default folder, but also in the folder of a user chosen certificate if the certificate and private key are in the same file.
  • No longer applies file size filters to symlinks.
  • Can now delete .$symlink files.
  • Can now delete empty folders via Internet Protocol that still contain metadata files and other useless files like Thumbs.db.
  • .metadata-syncovery files will now be remembered by the file list cache so that extra destination folder scans can be avoided.
  • Now works correctly with backslashes in file names in the local file system.

v9.36e for Windows (June 19th, 2021):

  • Fixes Access Violations in some specific situations, caused by the new logging features in 9.36d (mostly when downloading checksum files generated by the remote service via Internet Protocol).

v9.36d for Windows (June 19th, 2021):

  • Adds a checkmark on the Program Settings dialog, tab sheet “Logs”, at the bottom: “Transfer Details” (especially for large files and resuming).
  • Many improvements in resuming broken transfers, and related logging, ensuring that incomplete copies are not deleted unless absolutely necessary.
  • You can add NeverLoseResumes=1 to the [Main] section of Syncovery.ini, which causes Syncovery to really never delete any partial file, and never restart a transfer from the beginning. However, this can cause some legitimate situations to result in errors, for example if an incomplete copy needs to be deleted because there’s a new file version to replace it (a resume is not possible because it’s a new file).
  • Now supports flushing file buffers when copying locally or in the LAN/VPN. You can activate this feature by adding FlushFileBuffersAfterMBs=100 or FlushFileBuffersAfterSeconds=5 to Syncovery.ini.
  • Fixes real-time sync not working in combination with “Use a single never-ending profile run”.

v9.36c for Windows (June 15th, 2021):

  • Includes subfolder selection fixes if the base folder is just a computername without a network share name (such as \\MYSERVER).
  • Fixes the ActionsCSVLogFile feature which has been broken in a few previous releases.
  • Minor improvements.

v9.36b for Windows (June 11th, 2021):

  • Putty and SecureBlackBox fingerprints are now stored in the same way so the same fingerprint is accepted after switching the SFTP Implementation.
  • Adds new PascalScript utility functions: GetProfileProperty, SetProfileProperty, CreateS3Connector, UploadFile, CloseConnector, AtomicAppendTextFileLine.

v9.36a for Windows (June 10th, 2021):

  • Adds more Wasabi storage datacenter regions.
  • Implements the “Allow IPV6” checkbox for TGPuttyLib (previously, IPV6 was always allowed).
  • Fixes a rare hang copying alternate data streams.
  • SSH fingerprint verification and prompts are now implemented for TGPuttyLib. To avoid problems, unknown SSH keys will be automatically accepted and remembered for ten days after installing the Syncovery update.
  • Small logging improvements with File Security Details.
  • Uses a lighter color for files being copied right to left in Dark Mode.

v9.36 for Windows (June 3rd, 2021):

  • Allows up to 12 files being uploaded in parallel to Sharepoint and OneDrive.
  • Adds a new checkbox to the Performance tab sheet of the Program Settings dialog: “Remove default threading limits and other program limits”.
  • On Backblaze B2, fixes renaming or moving multiple files simultaneously if each is over 5GB.
  • Fixes an MD5 mismatch error for Amazon S3 uploads with server side encryption.
  • Monitoring tool stability improvements and dark mode UI fixes.

v9.35f for Mac (May 30th, 2021):

  • Includes recent improvements from the Windows version.
  • Improved PCloud listing algorithm.

v9.35e for Windows (May 28th, 2021):

  • Fixes a problem where SmartTracking would re-created deleted folders, if trying to delete them on the other side has failed.
  • When resuming uploads via Internet Protocols, Syncovery will now drop back in the file a little to prevent possible corruption of blocks at the position around the end of the previously interrupted upload.
  • Fixes an error parsing PCloud listings when RAW photos are on PCloud.
  • Fixes two rare crashes.
  • Getting volume information is now done with a timeout to avoid rare hangs with network drivs.
  • If the destination path contains a variable, Syncovery will now update its modification timestamp when the job is run.
  • Resuming via FTP protocol no longer uses the APPEnd command.

v9.35d for Windows (May 26th, 2021):

  • Fixes a possible cause for Syncovery not seeing files and folders with unusual attributes (mostly on exFAT drives).
  • Now warns if a removeable drive is chosen via the Device button and the volume label is not unique. Syncovery needs the volume label to identify the drive.
  • Rather than just “FAILED PATHS”, Syncovery now reports the number of “inaccessible subfolders”.

v9.35c for Windows (May 17th, 2021):

  • Additional bug fixes concerning the clean-up of older .partxxxx files.
  • Fixes inability to recognize incomplete part chains when uploading to OneDrive or Sharepoint.
  • Move Files Mode no longer uses the recycle bin by default.
  • Adds “Forget Cloud Access Tokens” and “Reset Known SSH/SSL Servers” to the web GUI.

v9.35b for Windows (May 7th, 2021):

  • Implements a missing functionality where older .partxxxx files were not deleted from the destination when a newer version of a file was uploaded with these settings: Compress Individually, and part plitting on the Internet dialog.
  • Fixes a rare error when renaming / moving files over 5GB on Backblaze B2.
  • Fixes inability to make authorize new connections with the old German Microsoft cloud (which is being phased out this year).
  • Adds these PascalScript functions: Utf8Encode, Utf8Decode, UnicodeStringMD5Hex, EightBitStringMD5Hex, UnicodeStringMD5Base64, EightBitStringMD5Base64.

v9.35a for macOS and Windows (April 30th, 2021):

  • macOS only: adds a button “Import Config Lines” to the Prefs tab sheet of the Program Settings dialog. It can be used to import the central monitoring configuration and other global settings for which no GUI elements exist.
  • Fixes downloading from a cloud protocol directly to an SSH or FTP server.

v9.35 for Windows (April 20th, 2021):

  • Adds a new Proxy setting for most cloud storages: “Use Windows Settings”. This will use the WinINet API rather than OpenSSL.
  • Fixes a bug when using compression when copying locked files, and the setting “Volume Shadowing: use for locked files”. The locked files would actually not be retried after the volume shadow was created.
  • Fixes possible errors when using the Sz format with higher encryption levels.

v9.34 for Windows (April 20th, 2021):

  • Adds MatrixStore Cloud as S3 compatible provider. Now supports multithreaded uploads to Storadera.
  • Adds a workaround for cloud authorization in cases where the Syncovery token pass-thru server is blocked by a Firewall.
  • HTTP GET as an execute after command will now use properly encoded URL parameters (especially for space characters).
  • Fixes a filename encryption bug that would re-encrypt filenames left over from incomplete transfers.
  • Prevents polling based on folder timestamps from being used as a real-time scanning method on servers where folder timestamps are not supported (S3, Azure, Rackspace).
  • Adds the new PascalScript Hook OnActionComplete.

v9.34 for Linux (April 19th, 2021):

  • Now compatible with many more NAS brands, including ASUS, Seagate, Netgear, Thecus, Western Digital and Zyxel.
  • The new Unified Syncovery Linux Installer, a Windows utility, should be used to install Syncovery on NAS devices for which no native packages are available.
  • Synology DSM 7 packages are now available.

v9.33e for Linux (April 3rd, 2021):

  • Includes recent fixes from Windows and fixes a rare problem where folders on WebDAV might be skipped.

v9.33d for Windows (Match 31st, 2021):

  • Fixes a potential threading issue that may have caused a rare instability or lock-up, on Windows only, when multiple profiles with UNC paths ran simultaneously, and in the same process.

v9.33c for Windows (Match 31st, 2021):

  • Fixes an error uploading compressed packages to Google Cloud Storage (with “many files per archive”).

v9.33b for Windows (Match 31st, 2021):

  • Fixes a Range Check Error caused by the new “Short” Filename Encoding feature that was introduced in Syncovery 9.32d. It sometimes recognized special file names as an encoded timestamp. The new version uses the decoding only if the customer actually chose to use the feature.

v9.33a for Windows (Match 30th, 2021):

  • Includes improvements from today’s macOS and Linux updates.

v9.33 for macOS and Linux (Match 30th, 2021):

  • Makes symbolic links and .$symlink files compatible with filename encryption.
  • Filename encryption now generally avoids using the DEL character.
  • Includes improvements from recent Windows updates.
  • Mac only: fixes the option “Ignore” for files of the same date but different size, on the Comparison tab sheet, for one-way sync jobs. Previously this option would be reset to “Copy” when the profile was opened again.

v9.33 for Windows (Match 28th, 2021):

  • Adds a list of S3-compatible storage providers to choose from, on the Internet Protocol Settings dialog. Includes compatibility fixes for Linode Object Storage.
  • Fixes the scheduler sometimes starting profiles immediately, when it is started, rather than using the scheduled interval.
  • Fixes a few somewhat rare issues with history-based cloud listings.

v9.32d for Windows (Match 25th, 2021):

  • Adds support for many new Amazon S3 regions, including South Africa, Middle East, and others.
  • Adds a new “Syncovery Short” filename encoding method, which you can choose under Versioning->More.
  • Reverts SSL Package Size increase tested in 9.32c for Azure and WebDAV.

v9.32c for Windows (Match 25th, 2021):

  • Fixes occasional license errors.

v9.32b for Windows and Linux (Match 23rd, 2021):

  • Fixes errors restoring Synthetic Backup files which could occur if newer versions of the file were smaller than older ones.
  • Includes TGPuttyLib build 13, which fixes occasional/rare crashes.

v9.32a for Windows (Match 19th, 2021):

  • Fixes minimizing bugs when using color themes with separate dialogs (rather than “Run Profiles in Main Window”)
  • Fixes no text being visible in the status bar when colored themes are used.
  • Updates FTP library 2 with possible bug fixes.
  • Fixes error handling when files could not be downloaded from DropBox because of “restricted_content”.
  • Adds an additional SSL certificate from Microsoft, used with Microsoft Azure BLOB storage. If the Azure certificate cannot be verified, the user can now accept the certificate manually.
  • OnMoveFileToDeletedFolder returning false will no longer be considered an error and not cause any retries.
  • Additional fixes.

v9.32 for Linux (March 15th, 2021):

  • Includes recent improvements from the Windows version.
  • Will now find the correct OpenSSL libraries on Ubuntu 20.

v9.32 for Windows/Mac (Match 13th/14th, 2021):

  • Now completely compatible with storadera.com, an Amazon S3-compatible storage service.
  • Adds the ability to specify the column separator for actions log CSV files with Syncovery.ini entries like this:
    ActionsCSVLogFile=C:\Tests\Actions-$PROFILENAME.csv
    ActionsCSVLogFileColDelim=;

  • Additional fixes.

v9.31 for Linux and Mac (February 20th, 2021):

  • Fixes problems in v9.30, which occurred on Mac and Linux only, related to tick counting and performance measuring. These could include incorrect transfer rates as well as some error messages.

v9.31 for Windows (February 17th, 2021):

  • Can now import .dat files containing profiles from another backup tool.
  • The Multi Edit Tool can now set scheduling based on intervals.
  • “Run Profiles in Main Window” is now the default for new installations.
  • Uses fewer separate work threads for profiles that run in separate threads already (such as background jobs).

v9.30d for Mac (February 18th, 2021):

  • Fixes the Internet Protocol dialog, which did not update its controls correctly when the selected protocol was changed, in version 9.30c.

v9.30c for Windows (February 17th, 2021):

  • Fixes extremely rare hangs on the Windows version.

v9.30c for Linux (February 14th, 2021):

  • Includes recent fixes from the Windows version.

v9.30b for Windows and Mac (February 14th, 2021):

v9.30a for Windows (February 11th, 2021):

  • Fixes one more B2 multithreaded upload progress reporting bug.

v9.30 for Windows (February 11th, 2021):

  • Syncovery 9.30 contains a new speed limit algorithm that should more accurately produce the desired rate, and fixes some bugs.
  • The speed limit is now compatible with multi-threaded large file uploads to Backblaze B2 and Amazon S3 (previously, large files were uploaded in a single thread when a speed limit was used).
  • Includes an updated OpenSSL version, which fixes occasional connection and transfer failures.
  • Fixes progress reporting bugs with multi-threaded uploads to Backblaze B2.
  • Adds the ability to turn Recycle Bin usage on or off in many profiles at once, using the Multi Edit Tool. Also to change the Move Files mode to overwrite identical or older files on the destination.
  • Detect renamed files now works in profiles that are not configured to detect deletions, i.e. in Standard Copying too.
  • Standard copying can now recurse into destination folders even if they don’t exist on the source side – see the new checkmark on the “Folders” tab sheet, which you will find only if you scroll it down – it’s checked by default on new profiles, but not checked on existing ones.
  • The Backblaze B2 b2_hide_file function now works with profiles that use the Destination File List Cache.
  • Fixes a problem where individual folders would not be read from Backblaze B2 correctly, when using the Destination File List Cache with the option to double-check individual folders.
  • Reduces minimum file size for block level copying from 64 kB to 2 kB (you can now change this on the Program Settings dialog, tab sheet “Types, Limits”.

v9.29f for Windows (January 31th, 2021):

  • Small DropBox relates fix where the log file could sometimes mention an error creating a folder although there was no error.
  • Synthetic Backup with Sz format now works when copying from an Internet Protocol.
  • Fixes error handling when trying to restore alternate data streams to file systems that do not support them (such as exFAT).
  • Some corrections in the statistics verification feature.

v9.29f for Linux and FreeBSD (January 30th, 2021):

  • Allows to change the date and time formats on the Program Settings dialog, tab sheet “Misc, License”. The browser page needs to be re-loaded for the change to take effect.
  • Now applies Unicode C Normalization to all folder and filenames, like Syncovery for Windows.

v9.29e for Windows (January 28th, 2021):

  • Additional DropBox upload improvements, especially concerning the handling of internal server errors. It includes smart retrying and falling back to individual file commits rather than batch commits in case of server errors, avoiding the need to re-upload any files that could not be committed on the first attempt.

v9.29d for macOS and Windows (January 27th, 2021):

  • Fixes an Invalid Pointer Operation error at the end of profile runs that copy Zip Packages when run in attended or unattended mode.
  • Increases the number of Dropbox upload retries after a batch commit fails.

v9.29c for Windows (January 25th, 2021):

  • Fixes a bug in 9.29b where Syncovery would loop trying to delete split zip parts from Amazon S3 although these files don’t exist.

v9.29b for Windows and macOS (January 26th, 2021):

  • DropBox batch related fixes esp. with filename encryption, zip parts, split parts, and uploading new files to a folder that has been renamed in the same run.
  • Improved handling of split zip files in some cases.
  • Now tries to do a simple, direct API copying of a file if getting its status (reading its attributes) fails.
  • The installer should now run on older Windows versions again (maybe even on Server 2003).

v9.29a for Windows (January 24th, 2021):

  • Progress reporting improvements with DropBox batch uploads.
  • Fixes an error message in v9.29 that prevented the user from using the Browse button to choose a folder in a download-only profile when using an Internet protocol.

v9.29 for Linux (January 24th, 2021):

  • Includes improvements from recent Windows updates.

v9.29 for macOS (January 23rd, 2021):

  • Includes improvements from recent Windows updates.
  • Fixes the “Duplicate” item in the context menu on the Profile Overview.
  • Now defaults to using the mac API copyfile function rather than the internal copying algorithm, for better compatibility with some network storages.
  • No longer recommends to run as root if there are access denied problems – because these need to be fixed under Security & Privacy in the macOS System Preferences, and running a root will not help.

v9.29 for Windows (January 22nd, 2021):

  • Improved speed for the “Find Renamed Files” step.
  • Reinstates functionality of the “Different Delay for Older Versions” on the Exact Mirror Settings dialog box. This feature didn’t actually have any effect in recent Syncovery versions.
  • Implements re-uploading of files to DropBox if committing the batch fails.

v9.28e for Windows (January 21st, 2021):

  • Implements renaming or moving of files on B2 which are larger than 5GB.
  • Now uses the b2_hide_file function to delete files, rather than actually deleting them, if “Use Recycle Bin” is checked in the profile.

  • Additional DropBox improvements and fixes.

v9.28c for Windows (January 19th, 2021):

  • Fixes MIME types on Backblaze B2 uploads.

v9.28b for Windows (January 19th, 2021):

  • Numerous DropBox improvements, including batch folder creations and deletions. Folder renames and moves are now done with a single HTTP request. File renames and moves are still relatively slow, but done in a single thread only so they won’t delay uploads in additional threads.
  • The number of files copied in parallel can now be set up to 20 for DropBox and Rackspace.
  • Backblaze B2 renames and moves can now be done without re-uploading files.
  • The Sz format now stores (and restores) Windows file attributes (the simple file attribute DWORD).
  • Additional optimizations, bug fixes, and improvements.

v9.28a for Windows (January 12th, 2021):

  • Fixes a problem where Syncovery would sometimes reset various global program settings to 0 or 1, causing slow copying, unintended job splitting, and no logging. This happened mostly on new installations but some customers saw it on upgraded installations too. The affected Syncovery versions were v9.25a thru v9.28.

v9.28 for Windows (January 12th, 2021):

  • Implemented batch uploads to DropBox, greatly increasing upload speed when uploading many smaller files, and reducing HTTP errors and the necessity for retries.
  • Bug fixes.

v9.27b for Windows (January 7th, 2021):

  • Real-Time Sync now subscribes to NTFS permission changes too, and it works in both 1-way and 2-way syncs.

v9.27a for Windows (January 5th, 2021):

  • Fixes a status dialog window (“Cleaning up log files”) sometimes staying open even though everything is done.
  • Fixes a SmartTracking problem where deleted files were sometimes not detected when syncing with Sharepoint sites. The cause was that Sharepoint servers sometimes add metadata to uploaded Office documents, and these size changes could cause Syncovery to tag the online file as modified, which takes precedence over the deletion on the other side.

v9.27 for Windows (January 5th, 2021):

  • Now supports uploading to Amazon S3 buckets with automatic object locking.
  • Reinstates font colors in the Sync Preview, which had been just black or white since Dark Mode was added.
  • Updated cacert.pem certificates list.

v9.26e for macOS (December 31st, 2020):

  • Adds a new checkmark “Skip online-only files” to the General Filters tab sheet. This works with DropBox and possibly other cloud storage folders and will cause Syncovery to skip files in the local DropBox folder which are marked as online only.

v9.26e for Windows (December 30th, 2020):

  • Fixes a problem caused by recent optimizations that could cause Syncovery to not create a destination folder before trying to zip a file individually and directly to destination into that folder, causing a zipping error.

v9.26d for Windows (December 29th, 2020):

  • Fixes a problem where inefficient progress reporting could sometimes cause low copying speed.
  • Now tolerates cloud JSON listings with incorrect UTF-8 encodings (which is extremely rare).
  • Improves speed of checking for duplicate files, which is done when listing most cloud service folders.

v9.26b for Linux (December 26th, 2020):

  • Fixes a problem with incorrect scheduling, as well as profiles sometimes “losing” their schedule.
  • Additional improvements.

v9.26b for Windows (December 23rd, 2020):

  • Improved transfer speed and reliability for DropBox and Mega.
  • Fixed background progress reporting from multiple jobs running in parallel, especially if they were all started in background with preview.
  • Fixed display on older Windows versions with theming disabled.

v9.26a for Windows (December 21st, 2020):

  • It is now possible to make new connections with Google Cloud Storage again, after the previous Syncovery version had reached a user limit.
  • Fixes a compatibility issue of real-time polling of cloud folders and the setting “Minimum pause between actions”.

v9.26 for Windows (December 21st, 2020):

  • Adds complete support for Dark Mode. Colors and various new dark and light themes can be chosen by clicking on the Gears toolbar button and choosing “Themes and Colors…”

v9.25d for Windows (December 18th, 2020):

  • Fixes the “Run Attended” button on the Overdue Profiles dialog, which actually ran all profiles unattended rather than selected ones attended.
  • Fixes real-time uploads to DropBox sometimes ignoring the profile’s base folder and using the DropBox root as base folder instead.
  • Fixes unzipping of multi-part zip files, which could error out if there were additional, older (orphaned) zip parts from older versions of the file.
  • Optimized the handling of a “folder for deleted files” with cloud storage by not double-checking and re-reading the folder from the cloud server for each file that is to be moved into it.

v9.25a for Windows (December 16th, 2020):

  • Fixes a v9.25 bug that could prevent the scheduler from starting when installed as a service.

v9.25 for Windows (December 16th, 2020):

  • Some work in preparation for Dark Mode has been made; separate color sets for light and dark mode can be chosen.
  • MEGA SDK updated and made more stable.
  • Fixed a rare DB update error.
  • Now processes file listings from cloud services even if incorrect UTF-8 byte sequences are found.
  • Fixed filenames from WebDAV sometimes not being decoded (and containing %20 instead of spaces).
  • Fixed clean-up of unneeded synthetic backup files sometimes not working.
  • Contains a bug fix restoring split zip files.
  • Additional improvements.

v9.25 for macOS (December 15th, 2020):

  • Adds support for Dark Mode.
  • Adds support for the MEGA cloud storage service (Intel 64-Bit version only).
  • Additional improvements.

v9.23 for Windows and macOS (December 3rd, 2020):

  • The SmartTracking and cache databases can now hold paths up to 30,000 UTF-8 bytes long.
  • Fixes polling of cloud servers (for two-way real-time syncs), which did not seem to detect changes in subfolders and did not work on Mac.
  • Additional smaller fixes, including those from the Linux version 9.23.

v9.23 for Linux (December 2nd, 2020):

  • Adds a “Download Diagnostic File” button to the Program Settings dialog.
  • Adds a “Delete Database” button to the tab sheet Special->Database in the profile editing dialog. This can only delete SmartTracking and profile-specific cache databases, not cloud cache databases.
  • Log files now also mention the database size for SmartTracking and cache databases.
  • The SmartTracking and cache databases can now hold paths up to 30,000 UTF-8 bytes long.
  • Error results are now shown in red in the profile overview.
  • Fixes issues downloading symlinks from $symlink files which were also compressed.
  • Fixes various permission setting / restoring issues.
  • Improved profile locking which was not always respected by the scheduler.
  • Various additional improvements.

v9.22 for Windows (November 26th, 2020):

  • Implements retries for failed E-mail notification sending.
  • Automatically tries different SMTP ports and TLS settings if a notification can’t be sent.

v9.21 for Windows and Linux (November 22nd, 2020):

  • Adds support for Azure Shared Access Signatures (SAS URIs).
  • Adds the /CSVLOG=xxx command line parameter, which will log all copying, deleting and other actions to a CSV file. This can also be chosen by a Syncovery.ini line such as ActionsCSVLogFile=C:\Tests\Actions-$PROFILENAME.csv.

v9.20b for macOS (Apple M1/arm64) (November 21st, 2020):

  • First native release for Apple’s new CPU.

  • Improved TGPuttyLib and compatibility with the Sz format in conjunction with “Verify copied files”.
  • When copying from an Internet Protocol to another Internet Protocol and using the Sz format for compression and/or encryption, previous versions would actually do the Sz processing twice (once during download and then again during upload), resulting in a redundantly double-Sz’ed file. This has been fixed.
  • The new version can now correctly unpack/restore such redundant double-Sz’ed files.

v9.19 for Windows (November 4th, 2020):

  • Adds two new settings to the “General Filters” tab sheet, which are mostly relevant when copying the local OneDrive folder: “Skip Offline Files” and “Copy Pinned Files Only”. Pinned files are those with the checkmark “Always keep on this device” in Windows Explorer.

This change also fixes an error 217 when the archive is copied to the destination.
  • Fixes hangs with the Mega API.
  • Adds a caching mechanism for IP addresses (resolved domain names) to reduce DNS queries and/or operating system function calls.
  • Stability and hang reporting improvements with multithreaded operations.

  • First Mac Release of Syncovery 9.
  • Cloud Cache Databases for Google Drive, DropBox, Box, and OneDrive/Sharepoint/Graph now store an additional flag to confirm that empty folders have been scanned and confirmed to be empty. This allows Syncovery to work correctly even if the subfolder selection for an existing profile is modified by the user, and some folders aren’t present in the cache yet. Syncovery 9.15 will have to re-confirm all empty folders once when you run a cloud based profile the first time after updating. This can result in a longer folder scanning process (only once per profile).
  • Should fix an issue where Syncovery would not see some folders on OneDrive.
  • Makes email and MTP destinations compatible with zip and sz packages (to send multiple files per email).
  • Now automatically disables some extended logging settings every 24 hours to avoid unnecessarily big log files.

v9.08 for Windows (August 5th, 2020):

  • For Google Drive and Sharepoint/OneDrive/Graph, adds a checkmark on the second tab sheet of the Internet dialog that allows to use the changes-based listing “Except For First Scan (scan folders directly if cache database is empty)”. This choice is on by default for new profiles, to avoid lengthy history processing.
  • Fixes a possible lockup when the max. number of profiles per process is set to 1.
  • Fixes unnecessary logging to Syncovery_realtime_status_log.txt, which could cause it to become quite large.

v9.07e for Windows (August 4th, 2020):

  • Fixes an Access Violation that could occur if two profiles simultaneously try to access the same cloud cache Sz archive file. This could cause the cloud cache database to be deleted, which could cause a lengthy re-scan or re-processing of the folders or changes history.

  • Additional bug fixes.

v9.05 for Windows (July 3rd, 2020):

  • Uses a new, advanced ETA algorithm that takes different copying speeds of smaller and larger files into account, as well as different speeds for uploading and downloading, and also measures the speeds of additional actions such as deletions and renames, and takes them into account.
  • A new checkmark “Empty Folders” on the Sync Preview allows you to hide and show empty folders, and also prevent the creation of empty folders (if you forgot to remove the Empty Folders checkmark in the profile and you don’t want them).
  • No longer attempts to upload files over 100 MB to Google Drive for conversion into native Google Docs. Instead, the original file format will be preserved on upload. Also falls back to unconverted uploads if the converted upload fails (rather than retrying many times).
  • Uses a newer version of Windows’ Browse for Folder Dialog.
  • Adds UseBinaryCompToAvoidCopying variable for PascalScripts.
  • More quickly skips over folders that can’t be deleted.

  • Prevents ever using AWS Signature V4 for servers like Wasabi, which are S3 compatible. Wasabi actually does support Signature V4 but apparently not in the exact same way as the original S3, so Syncovery’s V4 signatures failed with Wasabi.

v9.02a for Windows (June 9th, 2020):

  • Fixes lockups.

v9.02 for Windows (June 8th, 2020):

  • Allows up to 10 parallel uploads or downloads to and from DropBox (use carefully – can cause penalty delays).
  • Adds the first instalment of a REST API – when the browser based web interface is active, you can use profilelist.json to get a machine readable profile list with status and scheduled times etc. This read-only profilelist.json can be accessed without authentication if you use the INI file lines SkipProfileListAuth=1 or SkipProfileListAuthForIP=192.168.12.58.
  • Fixes some registry entries being made although the program is used in portable mode.
  • Additional smaller improvements.

v9.01a for Windows (May 28th, 2020):

  • Adds automatic an replacement of file and folder names containing colons when uploading to OneDrive and Sharepoint.

  • Additional smaller improvements.

v9.01 for Windows (May 27th, 2020):
