Synchronization question

#1

Post by Vasiliy » 10 Jan 2019 19:13

Hello everybody.
Is there any reason why can`t be used some other software for file synchronization from Windows machine to Xigmanas, other than Rsync or Syncthing? For example: AOMEI, Allwaysync, Goodsync, etc.

Thanks

OK. Thanks for a quick reply.
I tried to use Allwaysync but when the initial sync job is finished, in case of reboot, Xigmans is unable to mount HDD where the sync job was destined. I suppose that Allwaysync messed-up UFS file system, so I had to format my HDD every time.
I`ll try FreeFileSync.

I use FrefileSync over SMB, , you do not mention protocol do you use.

Well, I suppose it`s the SMB. Everything goes over SMB share. Maybe I`m wrong? How can I know the protocol it is used for data sync?
Thanks
