SyncBack V8 BETA • Re: SyncBack BETA V8.0.0.3 released (22nd March 2017)


Hi, it's not a problem and it won't interfere with your V6 profiles. The BETA version will use a different folder for the profiles and settings and will not import your V6 profiles automatically.

Also, later on in the installation you'll receive a prompt about your serial. Ignore it and click "Continue with the installation" and then "No thanks". We've fixed this prompting about the serial for the next release.

SyncBack V8 BETA • Re: SyncBack BETA V8.0.0.3 released (22nd March 2017)


Great to see a new version being tested, and allowing us to join in.

In the downloads section i read:
"The V8 BETA will use a different folder to store its settings and profiles. This means it will not interfere with your V7 or earlier profiles."

But i get this message about a 32bit version being installed already anyway. I assume it's not actually a problem continuing and won't overwrite / conflict with any older version's profiles and settings? (fyi, i am still using v6 pro though)

SyncBack V8 BETA • What is SyncBackLite?


SyncBackLite is the entry-level solution tailored for home users who want a low-cost file backup and synchronization solution. When used at home, each SyncBackLite license can be installed on up to 2 Windows computers. Think of SyncBackLite as an enhanced version of SyncBackFree, but not as enhanced as SyncBackSE. SyncBackLite will cost just US$19.95 per license

Benefits over SyncBackFree

- Open/locked file copying

- SmartSync and file moving

- All variables are available, including the ones to get the serials and labels of drives

- Compress email log file and all other advanced email log settings, e.g. attach log on failure only

- Log history

- Auto-profile backups

- Free technical support will be available for 30 days from purchase.

Pricing and Terms

- Each license of SyncBackLite can be installed on up to 2 Windows computers for home or personal users.

- Business users using SyncBackLite in a work-related environment will require a separate license purchased for each installation of the program.

- Because of it's low price, there will be no discounts when upgrading major versions, e.g. V8 to V9, there are no volume discounts and no discounts if you later decide to upgrade to SyncBackSE or SyncBackPro.

- Like SyncBackFree, SyncBackLite cannot be used on server versions of Windows.

- SyncBackLite will be 32-bit only.

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Backing up rated photos


I'm guessing this can't be done with SyncBack Pro but I'll ask anyway.

I'd like to back up my photos that are rated to the cloud (OneDrive, Google Drive, or Amazon Drive). To do that I need to read the embedded IPTC in each .jpg photo. I'd only want to backup if they have a rating.

I can select only .jpg files from the folder source but not the rating. Can this be done within SyncBack Pro?

It would be nice if the browse window could have that column added as in Windows File Explorer then I know I could use that.

SyncBack V8 BETA • Re: How does Backblaze support work?


Hi, Backblaze B2 is just like other cloud services, e.g. Dropbox, Amazon S3, etc. It's not to be confused with their Backblaze client.For more info on Backblaze B2 see:

(we've now updated the changes list to specify B2)

SyncBack V8 BETA • How does Backblaze support work?



Reading the "what's new in version 8" forum post I see that it will support Backblaze.

I use Backblaze and unlike dropbox, onedrive etc there's not a folder that you copy data into that then gets synchronised to a server somewhere. Instead you install an application that automatically scans your data and copies data as and when it changes.

So i'm wondering what Backblze support actually mean in the context of Syncback?

SyncBackFree (freeware) • Re: User aborted or the profile run-time limit was reached


Dear 2BrightSparks team,

This is still an issue in SyncBackPro V6.5.49.0. We have a number of planned tasks that start SyncBack groups. The following log is from one of the group member profiles.


I couldn't find a time limit anywhere in the settings of either Windows or SyncBackPro. No human stopped the profile.

What can I do? It seems similar to

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Shut down after completing sync


Windows 10 and SyncBack Pro v7

I would like to have a scheduled profile run and then after completion have it shut down my computer. The scenario would be that I leave my computer running but have the profile run at 1:00 pm when I'm not at home and after it runs it will shut down the computer. Is this possible?

SyncBackPro (commercial) • Re: SMTP Port



There is an option in SyncBackPro V7 to change the port number for SMTP email server (not for Microsoft Exchange server), which you can configure under:

Modify > Expert > Log > Email Log > Advanced > Port setting

I would suggest you to read the help file for more details. With Email Log > Advanced settings page opened, press F1 to open the contextual help.

Thank you.
