How to use DirSync Pro: basic functions for synchronizing files and folders


The Schedule tab in DirSync Pro shows the scheduled synchronization tasks.

Synchronization Mode pull down allows you to select pre-defined synchronization configurations or to define your own custom configuration. The options are:

Mirror A -> B (incremental): This is a mono-directional (one way) preconfigured synchronization which copies all the new and modified files/directories from DirA to DirB. A file/directory in DirB which does not correspond to a file/directory in DirA is marked as redundant and will be deleted. DirB is exactly the same as DirA after the synchronization.

Mirror B -> A (incremental): Same as ‘Mirror A -> B (incremental)’ with DirA and DirB swapped.

Synchronize A <-> B (incremental): This is a bi-directional (two way) preconfigured synchronization which copies all the new and modified files/directories from DirA to DirB and from DirB to DirA. All redundant files in DirA/DirB (according to each other) will be deleted after the synchronization. DirA and DirB will be exactly the same after the synchronization. If you select this mode, you may also define the conflict resolution mode in the conflict resolution tab.

Synchronize A <-> B (custom): Same as ‘Synchronize A <-> B (incremental)’ except some tabs get enabled in which you may set up your own options to define the synchronization behavior as you may wish.

Backup A -> B (full): This is a full copy preconfigured synchronization which will copy all files/directories one-by-one from DirA to DirB. This mode is useful when you want to make a complete back up of DirA.

Restore B -> A (full): This is a full copy preconfigured synchronization which will copy all files/directories one-by-one from DirB to DirA. This mode is useful when you want to restore a backup to DirA.

Contribute A -> B (incremental): This is a mono-directional (one way) preconfigured synchronization which copies all the new files/directories from DirA to DirB. No file is deleted from DirB in this mode.

Contribute B -> A (incremental): Same as ‘Contribyte A -> B (incremental)’. with DirA and DirB swapped.

Synchronize A -> B (custom): This is a mono-directional (one way) custom synchronization from DirA to DirB. If you select this mode, some tabs get enabled in which you may set up your own options to define the synchronization behavior as you may wish.

Synchronize A -> B (custom): Same as ‘Synchronize A -> B (custom)’ with DirA and DirB swapped.
