What's new?

Version 1.1.9

  • [New] - An option has been added to indicate that SyncFolder must create a subfolder on the target station with the same name as the source folder if it doesn't already exist. The option is the default for all new tasks you create. With this the user musn't create the folder upfront.
  • The possibility to give feedback in Settings has been removed. It turns out that this service is currently not 100% reliable in a number of Windows 10 systems.
  • Some minor changes have been done to improve robustness when copying files and provide better fault reporting in the logfile (e.g. stacktraces).

Version 1.1.8

  • [New] - Possibility added to specify that for certain type of files a history must be kept. This might be important in order to be able to restore a previous version of a file. It is not the intention to make this a full-blown backup with history feature. Only the 10 most recent versions are kept and only for files for which a specific extension is defined.

Version 1.1.7

  • [New] - Added the possibility to scan a QR code in order set up a secure WiFi connection when importing photos and videos via WiFi.
    This method can be used when the WiFi network doesn't support multicast and/or broadcast for discovering computers in the network.

Version 1.1.6

  • [New] - Added support to upload photos and videos from a mobile device using a WiFi connection. To make use of this new feature you must install the compagnion SyncFolder Photos app on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Starting with this version the number of user notifications that happen as a result of repeated backup errors, is reduced to only 1 (the first time the error occurs).
    You will however get a notification every 14 days when a backup keeps on failing.

Version 1.1.5

  • [New] - Added language support for German.

Version 1.1.4

  • The previous version closes the app when the Settings button was pressed on the main page. This has now been corrected.
  • There were some issues with certain devices when selecting an external storage station (USB disk, ..) as source or target backup medium. This should now be corrected.

Version 1.1.3

  • [New] - Option added to start backup immediately when an external USB drive is plugged in. Upon detection of the drive, the user is asked whether the backup should start or not.
  • Fault corrected where the app crashes on some devices after a USB drive is selected as source or destination in a job.
  • Previous versions gave an "unauthorized" error when the "Documents" folder was set as the source. No account was taken with hidden folders that are set as so-called "Junction Points". This has now been corrected.
