v6.35 (Windows) adds support for Rackspace Cloud Files

Syncovery for Windows now supports synchronizing your files with Rackspace Cloud Files. This is the first of a series of new cloud services that will be supported in the near future.

Cloud storage allows you to upload as much data as you need, paying only for the storage that you are actually using. It is a highly recommended storage location for your online backups. You need to sign up with the cloud storage provider, and then set up a profile to upload your data. Choose your local folders on the left-hand side, and click on the Internet button for the right-hand side. Then, choose the protocol you want to use (for example: Rackspace), and specify a container and folder where the data should be stored. You should also specify your Rackspace username and password (access key) here.

Even though your data is uploaded via secure https with SSL, you may want to use zipping and encryption for your files. To keep a constantly updated mirror of your data, we recommend using the option “Zip Each File Individually”.

Due to the nature of Rackspace Cloud Files, the “Last Modified” timestamp of your documents cannot be preserved. Therefore, we recomend to use the “Filename Encoding” feature of Syncovery. This adds the timestamps to the file names when uploading, and restores the original names and timestamps when restoring. You will find this checkmark on the Versioning tab sheet, as well as on the Internet dialog.

Additional cloud services will be added in the near future. Feel free to send your suggestions to info@syncovery.com!
