Echosync binaries have been electronically signed since version 22.214.171.124, released in July 2021. This guaranteed the integrity and origin of the software, but above all avoided the unexpected and anxiety-inducing alerts from the Windows SmartScreen filter, which is often intolerant of new and therefore unknown software (which is, by definition, the case when an update is released), then considered suspicious or even malicious.
Unfortunately, the price of code-signing certificates has quadrupled this year. As a result, the price has become unreasonable in relation to the added value provided by this guarantee of authenticity.
As Echosync does not generate any revenue, choices must necessarily be made as to the use of resources allocated to the development of Echosync.

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.

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.

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).

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.
