Echosync 6.0 release

Version 6.0 of Echosync was released today. The new features of this major version are essentially technical, linked to the use of the .NET 5.0 framework, now embedded in the software itself (it is no longer necessary to install it on the machine beforehand). Echosync is now a 64 bits software. Gains in performance and reliability are expected.

Echosync considers your files as different even though they have not been modified...?

If a time change has recently occurred and you are comparing files stored on an NTFS volume and a FAT volume, look no further. Indeed, if the modification dates of the files are saved in UTC format with NTFS, they are saved in local time with FAT, causing difficulties when making comparisons. I look forward to the abolition of the time change and/or the abandonment of FAT. More info on how Windows handles timestamping files at this address.

NET Framework version 4.7.2 is required

The next version of Echosync will require version 4.7.2 of the .NET Framework (provided by default with Windows 10 v1803). Those who don't have this minimum requirement are invited to install directly the .NET Framework 4.8 (provided by default with Windows 10 v1903).

New options available on the command line

Echosync version 5.5.4 offers the following new command line options:

  • option /exitonsuccess which causes Echosync to close automatically only if there is no error during synchronization operations (without displaying the cancel countdown window, just like the /exit option now);
  • option /silent which disables the splash screen and automatically minimizes the program window in the taskbar.

Echosync 5.5 release

Here are the main new features of Echosync 5.5:

  • The ability to choose not to synchronize more recent modified files in the Destination, while maintaining the synchronization of more recent files in the Source.
  • The comparison and synchronization operations can be paused (without having to undo everything and start all over again).
  • Dynamic detection of insertion or removal of USB storage devices.
  • Echosync's ability to update itself automatically, without manual user intervention, via a PowerShell script.

Echosync 5.0 release

It is now possible to consult the synchronization log and exclude folders ("source" sub-folders) from synchronization in version 5 of Echosync.

On the other hand, the functionality to synchronize a folder to a VHD file is no longer available due to a lack of interest by users.

Echosync 4.0 release

Among the main new features available in Echosync 4.0:

  • A unique Destination directory per profile, but the possibility to use the same VHD file in several profiles.
  • Support for paths longer than 255 characters.
  • The use of the volume ID to identify the Source and Destination directories (and not only the Windows volume letter or relative path, which is useful when using a USB key whose letter can change).
  • Visualization of the result of the comparisons directly in the software interface with a future view of the Destination.
  • The use of a new theme inspired by Office 2013.
