Copy Method 'Automatic'This setting automatically uses copy method B.
Copy Method BThe Deactivate file system cache option copies files without using the Windows file system cache. This can speed up the copying process when copying large files in the gigabyte range.
Copy Method CUpon starting the copy operation, the destination file is created with a modified date which is older than that of the source file. This ensures that AllSync automatically recopies the source file during the next copy operation in the event the link to the destination folder is interrupted. After the file is successfully copied, the create and modified date of the destination file is adapted to that of the source file. This copy method also enables you to specify the size of the data packets and the pause between data packets.
Copy Method DWith copy method D you can either use an external program to copy the source file or you can delete the source file:
Program for copying filesHere you specify the program with which a file is to be copied. The parameters for the external program must be specified in a separate text field. The following variables are available in the text field for the parameters:
- %1 = source file (example: C:\Data\Info.doc)
- %2 = destination file (example: D:\Backup\Data\Info.doc)
- %3 = destination folder (example: D:\Backup\Data)
Parameter: "%1" "%3" /h /r /y
Note: When the return value of the external program is not equal to zero, an error message is outputted to the log file.
Delete Source FileThis option deletes the source file. With the sub-option
Secure Deletethe content of the source file is completely overwritten with zeros before deleting and the file size is set to 0.
