File Replication (File Mirroring) with ViceVersa: Benefits

ViceVersa is a File Replication and File Mirroring Tool for Windows. ViceVersa is designed  to replicate a collection of files or folders from one location (=Source(s)), to another (=Target(s)). During each replication, ViceVersa will only copy files that have changed since last time, saving a considerable amount of time.

Distinctive File Replication Features and Benefits:

  • When required, ViceVersa will show changes to Source(s) and Target(s) in a side-by-side, easy to understand display. No more running of jobs blindly.
  • The ViceVersa replication process is resilient to failure. If the connection between Source (s) and Target(s) is lost at any point during replication, files will be left in a valid status. We validate this constantly with our "pull-the-plug" test. Your data is 100% protected.
  • ViceVersa supports encryption and compression of Source(s) and/or Target(s). A necessary feature when data needs to be moved over the web or replicated remotely. Your data is 100% safe.
  • ViceVersa allows users to control the bandwidth and the CPU power to be utilized during  replication. ViceVersa silently runs in the background. You will not notice any performance degradation.
  • ViceVersa supports file archiving and file versioning. Instead of removing older files from disk, they can be moved to a separate location for a period of time. Your data is 100% protected from accidental deletion.
  • Successful file copy can be verified using CRC, which compares files bit-by-bit.
  • NTFS file and folder permissions can also be replicated.
  • Variable Path Selection inserts variables into the source or target path to create unique replications based on these variables.
  • Replication can occur on demand, scheduled, as soon as file changes are detected, at log-on or at log-off.
  • Replication can be performed as a Windows Service.

File Replication Common Uses:

  • Continuous file backup and file mirroring to a separate location, such as to a network hard disk, a NAS, CD-RW, LAN, another PC, server or storage device.
  • Server backup to another server.
  • Continuous one-to-one or one-to-many replication of two or more servers to provide load balancing and fail-over. Files need to be the same on each server and when one file is updated, it needs to be pushed to all other servers.
  • Distribution of files from a server to workstations / laptops (push).
  • Backup of workstations / laptops to a server (pull).

This is the best feature ever. It does everything RAID 1 does, except it's cheaper, and I can set ViceVersa to keep old versions of files in it's archive just in case I need the file later unexpectedly. I use a little 1.8 inch USB drive as my backup drive, and you can't do that with RAID!

Raid configuration is very popular, especially Raid 1. It would be nice if there are some profiles coming with the product that can represent the raid 1 configuration. User is very confident to select them for use.

Mirroring from a source to a target (RAID-1 way) can be done using the Backup (Mirror Source to Target) execution method in ViceVersa, see:
