– fixes an issue in yesterday’s version 7.48a preventing the scheduler from starting.

v7.48a (Windows, Apr 27, 2016):
– bug fix of File List Cache sub-option “Double-check the actual destination for those folders where new or updated files seem to exist” when used with B2 or Rackspace (which is not recommended because it causes complete re-reading of the file list with those APIs).

v7.48 (Apr 26, 2016):
– allows efficient usage of the “Cache Destination File List” feature with Backblaze B2 and Rackspace
– log on jobs are now run in parallel as part of the normal scheduler operation, rather than delaying scheduler start-up

– fixes Google Drive errors concerning folder names starting with a space or containing a single quote character
– fixes items missing from the Sync Preview when it starts in collapsed state
– if the folder for deleted files on an FTP or other server already contains a file to delete,
and also contains it in encoded form with timestamp, then the file is just deleted if moving it into the folder for deleted files fails.
– it now makes sense to combine binary comparison with move files mode and “delete identical or older from source”
– fixes a bug where Syncovery would try “resuming from 0 Bytes”

v7.37 (Windows, Jan 11, 2016):
Implements recursive deletion of deselected folders from the destination in Exact Mirror Mode, when the option “Remove Deselected Subfolders and Files From Destination” is chosen. To use this feature you have to actively choose it again in version 7.37 even if it was chosen previously.

v7.30 (Dec 13, 2015):
– adds DropBoxV2 as protocol. The new algorithm and API for DropBox speeds up getting the file list, similar to Google Drive in v7.29. This algorithm caches the file list and downloads only the changes when a job starts. It is highly recommended not to use the feature “Cache Destination File List” any more because the new algorithm has its own cache.
– various bug fixes

v7.29 (Dec 9, 2015):
– new algorithm and API usage for Google Drive speeds up getting the file list. This algorithm caches the file list and downloads only the changes when a job starts. It is highly recommended not to use the feature “Cache Destination File List” any more because the new algorithm has its own cache.

  • Fixes a possible bug converting older Google Docs profiles when they are not edited but run directly by the new version.

v7.17 (May 30, 2015):

  • The Google Drive protocol now completely replaces the Google Docs protocol, which has been shut down by Google. Previous Google Docs jobs will automatically use document conversion where chosen. New jobs and previous Google Drive jobs need to have document conversion enabled if desired. The checkmark is on the second tab sheet of the Internet dialog. Note that the available file types for conversion have been updated on the Google Docs tab sheet.
  • Fixes a few cloud related issues (especially around authentication and refreshing tokens).

v7.16a for Windows (May 22, 2015):

  • Any single Syncovery process will not allocate more than 8GB of RAM even in the 64 bit version. The limit can be changed by adding a line such as AbsMaxMemoryMB=2048 to the [Main] section of the INI file. If a job allocates more memory than this, it will stop and log diagnostics information.
  • Jobs split due to the number of files exceeding 2 million (or the number specified on the Program Settings dialog) will now request only one recursive listing for all the parts of the split job from servers like FTP, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure and other cloud services.

v7.10 for Mac and Windows (Feb 22/23, 2015):

  • The Syncovery Remote Service can now generate multi-threaded file listings extremely fast, and the new listings can be processed by Syncovery with multiple threads also. This means a huge speed increase for remote listings. The number of threads can be specified on the Remote Service Control Panel, and independently on the Program Settings dialog in Syncovery.
  • Fix for OneDrive file listings that take over 60 minutes.
  • Adds automatic retries for cloud connections in some cases where they were still missing.

v7.09e (Jan 25, 2015):

  • Fixes a bug in the Azure protocol which would cause Syncovery to not recognize the file size correctly if it was over 2GB, which could cause re-uploading of such files.

v7.09d (Jan 23, 2015):

  • Another fix for the Google Drive protocol, especially for uploading a larger amount of files. The number of files being copied in parallel will be dynamically chosen between 1 and 3 depending on the rate limiting imposed by the server.

v7.09c for Windows (Jan 22, 2015):

  • Fixes creating folders on OneDrive which was broken in 7.09/7.09a on Mac only.

v7.08a for Windows (Jan 13, 2015):

  • OneDrive: the folder creation logic will now honor the delay specified by request throttling errors from the server.
  • SSH/SFTP: IPV6 off switch was ignored in version 7 so far, this has been fixed.

v7.08 for Macintosh (Jan 12, 2015):

  • Fixes a possible hang in attended mode trying to show the special safety warning dialog when more than 500 files are to be deleted.
  • Can now remove ACLs and Extended Attributes from destination files where necessary to achieve an exact mirror.
  • Can replace files with folders, or folders with symlinks etc., and vice versa. See also v7.08 for Windows below.
  • Additional fixes.

v7.08 for Windows (Jan 9, 2015):

  • In Exact Mirror Mode, Syncovery can now replace files with folders and vice versa. Previous versions would not handle such cases and report them as a conflict only.
  • Fixes uploading zip packages (with several files per zip archive) to OneDrive when Auto-Resume was off.

v7.07b for Mac and Windows (Jan 5, 2015):

  • Allows up to 10 parallel uploads for Rackspace and BOX.
  • More than the allowed uploads can now be specified on the Files tab sheet, so that additional threads can prepare for uploading and wait in queue.

v7.04 for Mac and Windows (Dec 4, 2014):

  • Implements chunked uploads for DropBox so you can upload files over 150MB.
  • Allows up to 3 parallel uploads for OneDrive.
  • Added a “Fast Mode” for OneDrive that uses only the new chunked API. In Fast Mode, the files’ “Last Modified” timestamps cannot be preserved, but you will likely not get any “Request throttled” errors, so you can upload more data faster. You will find the Fast Mode checkbox on the second tab sheet of the Internet dialog. In addition, for the normal uploading mode, fallback to the new API as well as handling of the request throttling by OneDrive has been improved.
  • Updates the Syncovery Remote Service with a possible stability fix.

v7.03a for Windows (Nov 29, 2014):

  • Fixes a rare “Division by zero” exception.

  • Excessive memory usage when scanning folders on Microsoft Azure has been fixed.
  • On Windows, the NTFS Security Settings (permissions) copying has been much improved. You can now copy permissions directly from the top level of a UNC share to a folder, or to another UNC share. When choosing “Process base folder too”, inheritance is automatically disabled on the destination if this is necessary to make the permissions match. Several bugs have been fixed.

v7.02 for Macintosh (Nov 23, 2014):

  • First Release for Mac.
  • Performance Enhancements especially when jobs run in the English GUI due to removed diagnostics code. The background scheduler, and other language GUIs didn’t have this code.
