Mac Permissions and ACL's

Post by smfla »

Is there a way to propagate Mac permissions, ACLs, special metadata (keywords, tags, colors) when syncing data with Syncovery?

Hello,
yes, it can copy all metadata along with files - if the destination volume supports the metadata (especially not via Internet Protocol).

For some metadata, Syncovery may need to run "as root". You can choose that via the Gears toolbar button on the main Profile Overview tab sheet.

Please take a look at the items to compare / mirror in the profile under
Comparison->More in each profile.

Most items are not selected by default.
