SyncBackPro (commercial) • Enhancement rquest: backup runtime column


What would be useful is a new column to display the backup run time. It is displayed in the log after 'Scan Finished'.

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Re: Folder scan filter for target?


If I understand you correctly, you want to copy the contents of two independent folders into ACD.
In Source, select only the folders you want to copy.
In Target, select the path where you want to copy the source.
That way it would only scan selected folders in source and it will compare it with target. The time for scanning process will depend on how much files contents the source folder and destination. In my case, for about 100k files takes about 10 minutes.

By the way, ACD seems to be working normally since yesterday. Has it got any better for you?

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Folder scan filter for target?


I want to copy two folder from source to target which is on ACD. Problem is, target has lots of folders and I do not want SB to scan those folders. So I want copy content from two folder of source to two folder on target without scanning other root folder. Is that possible without creating task for each folder?

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Re: Email notification group


Hi, There's a Group-level log you can read manually, but emailing it somewhere is not supported. Emailing the log is only supported per-profile (that is, for individual profiles that are not a Group).

I think the main issue is that a Group log's current format embeds hyperlinks to the drive/UNC paths & file-names of the main page/s of the individual per-profile log/s it lists (also, the group-log of any higher- or lower-level group 'involved' - so you can 'drill up' as well as 'drill down'). I guess that's why no email facility has been added (as those hyperlinks are unlikely to work when clicked on anything but the machine running SB).

Are you sure? Because I can't see any profile (or Group) with Last Run values citing '25th' - they're either '24th' (the Group) or '26th' (the individual profiles.

Anyhow, it looks almost certain that your Windows update has disrupted the Windows Task Scheduler which has corrupted the Scheduled Tasks stored in a custom location (dedicated to SB), with the outcome that they trigger at the Scheduled time (and record the fact internally), likewise self-update the Next Run value stored inside the Task accordingly (more detail about this in my post in this topic) but don't actually call SB > run the profile. According to the most-recent poster in the linked thread above, if he deleted his Schedules (Tasks) and then re-created them afresh, the new Tasks started working normally.

I've also seen a reference somewhere to deleting all Tasks, and rebuilding from scratch; the implication being that you need to let Windows auto-delete the custom Task storage by removing the last Task/s stored in it, then re-create the custom Task location in some subtly different way that your current Windows build is happy with & doesn't trigger what seems to be a Windows bug. The last poster in the linked topic doesn't seem to have needed this 'remove all' aspect, but as it represents the same amount of work, just in a different order, you could try deleting all the Tasks - either by deleting all the Schedules in SB or directly delete the SB-based Tasks from the Windows Task Scheduler - including any Tasks set up to trigger SB under any other usernames))

SyncBack V8 BETA • Re: Daily Schedule Not Running


Screen capture as of this morning, Saturday 27th, 8:30 AM and the backups still haven't run. What's curious is that the "last backup" is Thursday the 25th, and the "next backup" is Sunday the 28th, yet the backups are scheduled for "daily" runs.

SyncBackPro (commercial) • SyncBackPro? & GoodSync?


Hi all,
I am looking at available backup and file syncronisation options for my DS411+.
I have come across some software, either of which might be useful for backing up and synchronising with a Diskstation:
Am I correct in thinking that these programs should be able to backup to a Diskstation using the DiskStation FTP facility (or is that just for 'external'/interenet access) ?
And has anyone used either of these and can comment as to their suitability for backing up and synchronising folder structures over a local network with WIndows PCs ?Please Help. Thanks !
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Re: Amazon Cloud Drive can not upload.


Kostas, for what you say this is a known issue with ACD that comes and goes randomly. I have not noticed it before.
Based on your experience, do you think that ACD is a reliable service then? If not, what other do you suggest? There are so many options that is difficult to decide which one to choose. I doubt many times to use a "home" solution as ACD services, or a "professional" like S3.

In my 3-2-1 strategy I use two external HDDs and Blu-Rays (for archival purposes). The cloud storage is an offsite option and also for having more redundancy. If this continues, I might leave ACD and choose another service or, simple, abandon any cloud. What are your thoughts?

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Re: Amazon Cloud Drive can not upload.


Hi all,

I understand how furstrating this is for all of you but unfortunately we don't know why ACD behaves like this, throwing errors at random to the users. As others said this is not a problem unique to SyncBackPro and we've tried to improvise in order to mitigate the issue.

Seems recently the problem got worse with ACD totally rejecting the upload compared to the past when it used to throw an error but the file would make it to the storage fine. Whatever solution we choose in order to help with the current situation could probably cause a profile running perpetually if the number of files is too large, so we decided to keep it working as it is now.

We'll keep an eye to the situation and see what else we can do as long as it is aligned with how our application works.

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Re: Amazon Cloud Drive can not upload.


Same problem for me too. Error 400 all the way. I had this in the past too and duplicated jobs to get around this error but it's now really bad. I have to try it 5 times or more for a single file.

I using the v7 beta mentioned here but it don't help.

Could you please consider a feature for retry a upload multiple times in cause of a 400 error?
It's really annoying I hope it can be fixed....

SyncBack V8 BETA • Daily Schedule Not Running


Installed the latest beta but can not get the daily schedule to run. Did a Google search prior to posting this question but most of the solutions/suggestions didn't really help. Running Windows 10 Creators Edition with latest updates. Any suggestions where to look?
