A few weeks ago we released a preview of Sync Folders feature that allows automatically synchronize local folders with Amazon S3 buckets. Over a few weeks we got we gathered some feedback from our user community and we are happy to announce some improvements.
Sync folders based on names only
This option works exactly like its name implies. In other words it will only copy files if it finds the files with new names. This option works faster as we don’t have to identify date modified for each files.
Sync folder apply ACL automatically
In the previous release you had to manually set ACLs to the files copied to the bucket using Sync Folder features. In the latest release the bucket ACL can be applied to new files automatically. To make it work you have to set Permission inheritance option in Tools | Options | Copy/Move tab:
A bit of usability…
And last but not least some of our users complained that they were confused once they created a sync folder. What should I do next? Does it run automatically or I should do something to run it? We added a message explaining what you should do next to run sync.
