Managed file transfers (MFT) over SSH, SFTP, FTP/S, and FTP protocols. You can synchronize, backup, mirror, archive, copy and move files and folders.
Automate file transfers between local and network share folders, portable drives, USB memory sticks, NAS storage, and linux SMB shares.
New and changed files are transferred from source to target. Date variables can be used in folder names. Perfect for offsite backup sync tasks.
New and changed files are transferred from source to target. Any extra files or folders that no longer exist on the source are also deleted on the target. This helps you to manage clutter on the target, making the target an exact replica of the source.
All files in the source folder are transferred to the target, and after a 100% successful transfer, they are deleted on the source. In other words, files are moved from the source to the target. If a certain file is not transferred in full, it is not deleted on the source. You can create a hot-folder sync task that is configured like this:
c:\OutBox -> ftp.yourserver.com/InBox
And all of the files found in the c:\InBox (and its subfolders) are moved to the remote /InBox. The sync task can also be set up in reverse:
ftp.yourserver.com/OutBox -> c:\InBox
All files in the source folder are transferred to the target, and after a 100% successful transfer, they are moved to the archive folder on the source. If a certain file is not transferred in full, it is not moved on the source. You can add date variables to archive folder name, like /Archive/%TODAY[yyyy-mm-dd] to create a separate archive folder for each day.
Keep two folders perfectly in sync, while files can be modified on both sides. The file date stamps are used for comparison. BatchSync will adjust server file dates using server time-zone settings for proper time comparisons.
Propagated deletions allow you to create true bi-directional syncs. When enabled, the software tracks deletions on both sides, and repeats the deletion made on one side on the other side.
Automate tasks with scheduler. You can run tasks at regular intervals or at set time:
All tasks are run scheduled by a Windows service, so they are run even when nobody is logged on to the computer.
When tasks are run on a schedule, you will receive email notifications on task statuses and/or errors.
For example, your scheduled nightly file upload should always transfer exactly 5 files. Transfer result verification lets you do that, check that exactly 5 files were successfully transferred, and it not, send you a notification email about this error. You can define rules for total number and total size of files transferred.
The folders being synchronized or transferred can be local folders or reside at a network share (UNC filenames and paths are supported). The other side of the sync set can reside on any common FTP, FTP/S, or SSH server. BatchSync Secure uses standardized FTP/FTPS/SSH/SFTP protocol commands, so it does not rely on any server side extensions or non-standard features.
Connect to Microsoft IIS FTP/S server. FTP/S file transfers are encrypted with strong encryption ciphers like 128-bit and 256-bit AES. BatchSync supports both implicit and explicit FTP/S connection methods.
Connect to Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, Raspberry Pi and any other SSH server.
SFTP is a file transfer subsystem of an SSH server. In this setup,
BatchSync is an SSH client and makes a connection to the SSH server
in a secure manner. The SSH protocol encrypts usernames, passwords,
and all data with 256-bit AES, Blowfish, or 3DES ciphers. The 256-bit
AES encryption is adopted as an encryption standard by the US government.
Product uses FIPS 140-2 certified components for reliable secure transfers (certificate #1051). The FIPS 140-2 is a standard that describes US Federal government requirements that IT products should meet for Sensitive, but Unclassified (SBU) use.
You can utilize the SSH public key authentication functionality to log in to remote systems by using private/public key pair. This provides even higher level of security than password logins. Supports also password + public key logins. Both OpenSSH and SSH.com key file formats are supported.
Set up rules for server certificate validation: Accept only certificates that can be validated up to a CA root, or accept also self-signed certificates with certain SHA1- or MD5-fingerprints.
Install, configure and automate file transfer tasks in hours, rather than in days or weeks.
No .NET, no Java, no SQL databases to install and configure, absolutely nothing else than Windows is needed.
Batchsync CONSOLE is an easy to use tool for creating, editing, and running the sync tasks. It also has a sync preview feature, which displays sync results without actually transferring any files. This preview feature is a great tool for testing and fine-tuning the sync task filters and options.
Task wizard makes it easy to create new sync tasks, and gets you started quickly. It prompts you for all of the details needed to set up a new sync task.
Task optimizer helps you to find optimum settings for your file transfers to get the fastest file transfer speed possible.
Transfer history records a full history of all sync runs performed on the system, with information like date, number of files transferred, errors, average transfer speed, time taken, etc. You can also view a list of all of the files transferred for a selected history sync run.
Each task can be set up to send emails on successful and/or failed syncs. You can optionally include a list of the files transferred. You can specify multiple recipients for the notifications. Emails are sent using the standard SMTP server protocol, and secure connection protocols (SSL and STARTTLS) are supported.
You can modify the supplied email templates to fully customize notification email content and formatting for all tasks, or separately for each task.
You can generate up to four different log files for each run of the sync task. The log files are: Transfer history log (shared summary log file for all sync tasks), FTP command log, list of files transferred and error log.
There are various auto-rotation schemes available for log files, so you can e.g. set up log file to be rotated when its size reaches 100MB. Or set new log file to be created every day or every week etc.
BatchSync writes all sync run results to the Windows Event Log with success / error statuses. You can utilize this feature to integrate BatchSync with external log monitoring/alert systems.
The BatchSync supports up to 12 parallel file transfer streams. Transfer your data up to 10x times faster.
The number of reconnects, retries and timeouts can be specified individually for each task. You can also use unlimited retries. Software will automatically continue (=resume) the transfer in exact point of failure, rather than starting from the beginning of the file each time. When reaching the max limit for retries, you can be notified via log files and email notifications.
BatchSync accelerates file transfers with on-the-fly file compression using the MODE Z command. Software also supports SSH on the fly compression.
Support for many European language foreign characters (like ßåäöØæ) in file and folder names using UTF-8 encoding.
IPv4 addresses are running out, and IPv6 is the solution. BatchSync fully supports IPv6 connections and networks.
You can specify multiple include and exclude filters for each task. Filters can use file/folder names, file size, date and attributes, and can utilize regular expressions for powerful control over filters. File name filters can be matched within a specific sub folder, set of sub folders or all folders. You can also use date variables in filters.
BatchSync can detect conflicts (=file has changed on both source and target) and you can specify the action to take in conflicts, like skip file, skip and report, always upload etc.
You have an option to ignore subfolders (no recursion to subfolders) and also ignore symbolic links. Specific folders & symbolic links can also be excluded with filters.
Date variables with user defined formatting can be used in the source and target folder names to create dynamically changing folder names, e.g., for backup sync tasks.
