Notes about the new Scan Acceleration
With Scan Acceleration, you can speed up the folder scanning phase of a
profile significantly in certain scenarios. The scanning phase is when all the
information is collected from Source and Target folder(s) to initiate the
comparison and then to work out which files or folder need to be copied,
based on their attributes / timestamps and on the selected execution
method in ViceVersa.
It can take a significant amount of time to scan all files if there are a lot of
files to scan. Scan Acceleration can make that a lot faster, up to 10 times
faster, in some cases. For example, scanning a complete drive with two
million files on it with Scan Acceleration could take less than 60 seconds,
instead of 10 minutes without.
How Scan Acceleration Works
Scan Acceleration builds an index of the drive before the actual scanning
occurs. The index will make the scanning faster. The index is kept in
memory during the scanning phase, and it is then deleted once done.
Scan Acceleration Use Cases
- Accelerate mirror / sync / replication of files between two USB drives (both
formatted as NTFS)
- Accelerate mirror / sync / replication of files between two local HDD / SDD
or from HDD / SDD to or from USB drive (all formatted as NTFS)
- Accelerate mirror / sync / replication of files between local HDD / SDD /
USB drive to network path (scan acceleration enabled for local drive
formatted as NTFS)
- Accelerate mirror / sync / replication of files between HDD / SDD / NAS (all
formatted as NTFS)
