|ViceVersa PRO 3 Build 3002 Released
What's New in Version 3 (Build 3002):
New Profile Settings Option 'Action to perform if file/folder security attributes do not match after copying'
Choose an action to perform if file/folder security attributes do not match after copying:
Leave empty to not check file/folder security attributes after copying.
Select 'Warning' to add a warning to the log file and output window if file/folder security attributes do not match after copying.
Select 'Error' to report an error (file or folder is not copied in this case).
New File Filters
Added ability to filter files based on the KiloBytes, MegaBytes, GigaBytes size, not just file size in bytes.
Show Comparison of File Permissions and Security Attributes
Added the ability to show the comparison of file permissions and security attributes for two or more side-by-side files in the comparison window.
Support for Windows Server 2019
Retry on File Copy/Delete Error
Added three new profile settings options to retry on file copy or file delete error. The new options are the number of times to retry per file, the total retries per job and the number of seconds between retries.
These new options have been added on top of the already existing options to retry on network error, during source and target scanning.
Fixed Issues and Improvements:
- 'Handling of auto-inherit and auto-inherit-request file permissions' when copying file security attributes and file permissions.
- 'Improved inheritance propagation' when copying file security attributes and file permissions.
- 'Access Denied' when copying folder modified dates.
- 'Hidden Target Root Directory' when using Volume Shadow Copy and copying folder modified dates.
- 'Offline File Attribute' incorrectly propagated from source to target.
- 'Optimized CRC Calculation' made CRC calculation faster for origin files (removed the need to recalculate the CRC of the 'from' file after copying)
- 'Last Access Date' preserve the last access date also during CRC verification and/or comparison when the option 'Preserve last access timestamp of files being copied' is enabled.
What's New in Version 3:
Support for 4K monitors and high DPI Windows settings
Added support for large resolution displays and high DPI settings, e.g. Microsoft Surface, Book, Laptop, etc.
Added the capability to move files/folders from Source to Target based on the file name, size, time. Files/folders are copied to Target and if the copy is successful then they are deleted from Source.
Memory Usage Minimization
New option to minimize memory usage when running profiles. Memory usage will be halved when this option is activated, increasing the number of profiles that can be run at the same time.
Map To Drive
Added the capability to connect to a network path and map it to a drive letter.
New option to compare files using the SHA-256 signature of their content on top of the standard CRC32.
Recheck File and Folder Security Attributes During Comparison
This new option allows re-checking and re-aligning of the selected security attributes for all files and folders in Source and in Target each time the profile runs. When this option is enabled, the selected security attributes of files and folders will be re-checked during comparison and they will be re-adjusted during the profile execution. Not only for files and folders that are copied but also for files and folders that are already both in Source and in Target. VVEngine will also detect changes to security attributes of existing files/folders and replicate them.
New Option 'Max Files/Folders to Delete'
If profile execution would result in more than this amount of files/folders deleted in Source or Target, the profile is not executed. No files at all are copied or deleted in that case and execution is aborted before the copy/delete process starts. The amount can be specified as a number, for example, 100, or as a percentage, for example, 10%.
New Option 'Max. Files/Folders to Update'
If profile execution would result in more than this amount of files/folders updated (overwritten) in source or target, the profile is not executed. No files at all are copied or deleted in that case and execution is aborted before the copy/delete process starts. The amount can be specified as a number, for example, 100, or as a percentage, for example, 10%.
New Option 'Stop If a File Name Matches'
If a file name in Source or in Target matches the file mask specified, comparison and execution are stopped immediately and an error is returned. For example, specifying *.jpg will stop execution if there is a file with extension jpg in Source or Target. You can specify multiple file names or file masks by using the separator |, e.g. text.doc|*.exe
Manage All 'Don't Ask Me Again Tell Me Again Messages'
Added capability to manage / reset / set the default answers. Throughout the application, prompts appear providing information about the current area of the program. Many of these have the option to no longer show the message.
New File Hashes Extension
New optional 'File Hashes Extension' for Windows Explorer. When the extension is installed, from the ViceVersa preferences, you will be able to right click on multiple files in Windows Explorer and show their file hashes: CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, KECCAK and SHA-3.
When conflicts are synchronized (files changed on both sides since the last sync), the older file is renamed first.
Save Source and Target Comparison to CSV file
Added capability to save the comparison of Source and Target folders to CSV file (comma separated values file). This can also be done automatically using the command line.
